You can [G]listen [A]to their [D]stories and [A]pick up what you [F#m]can
You [G]listen [A]to their [D]stories maybe [A]read a book or [C#m]two[F#m]
Un[Bm]til they send[A/C#] you [D]out there, [G]man you [A]haven't [F#m]got a [Bm]clue
[C#m]Oh the [A]Hindu [C#m]Kush, the Band-e [A]Amir, the [C#m]Hazara[A] [F#m]
They [Bm]tell you [A/C#]a tra[D]dition in the [A]hills of[F#m] Kanda[Bm]har[E/B] [Bm]
