Soldier's Joy 1864  Guy Clark

"Soldierā??s Joy 1864
Guy Clark
Capo on 2
[Am]First I thought a[Dm] snake had got me[Am] it happened dreadful[E7] quick
[Am]Was a bullet[Dm] bit my leg,[Am] right off[G] I got[Am] sick
[Am]I came to in a[Dm] wagon load of[Am] ten more wounded[E7] men
[Am]Five was dead[Dm] by the time[Am] we reached that[G] bloody[Am] ten[C/G]t
[C]Gimme some of that[F] Soldierā??s Jo[C]y, you know what[G7] I mean
[C]I donā??t want [F]to hurt no mo[C]re my leg [G7]is turn[Am]inā?? green
The doctor came and looked at me and this is what he said
Your dancinā?? days are done, son, itā??s a wonder you ainā??t dead
Then he went to work with a carvinā?? knife sweat fell from his brow
ā??Bout killed me tryinā?? to save my life when he cut that lead ball out
Give me some of that Soldierā??s Joy, ainā??t you got no more
Hand me down my walkinā?? cane I ainā??t cut out for war
Red blood run right through my veins run all over the floor
Run right down his apron strings like a river out the door
He handed me a bottle and said, son drink deep as you can
He turned away then he turned right back with a hacksaw in his hand
Gimme some of that Soldierā??s Joy you know what I like
Bear down on that fiddle boys just like Saturday night
Gimme some of that Soldierā??s Joy you know what I crave
Iā??ll be hittinā?? that Soldierā??s Joy til Iā??m in my grave
[C] [F] [C] [G]  
[C] [F] [C] [G] [Am]
