1939 returning

For The end of the verse
...his night

[A#m]Captured clandest[C7]ine
[Fm]Crawled into the [Cm]lights
[C#]He knew he [G#]was in for a sho[F#]eing
[Ebm]Just wasn't to be his n[Ab]ight[A]
[A#m]Dragged out of the frozen[C7] Rhine
[Fm]For the Motherland and the Thi[Cm]rd Reich
[C#]A toeing's [G#]as good as a shoei[F#]ng
[Ebm]When it's not to be your n[Ab]ight[A]
[A#m]Tread carefully, so carefully
[A]Upon the drifting ice
[Dmaj7]Caught behind enemy lines
[E]In 19[F]39
[A#m]For Germany
[A]he sacrificed his life
[Dmaj7]Caught behind enemy lines
[E]There i[F]n 193[Am]9

[A#m]Kids knee-deep in rubb[C7]le
[Fm]London urchins grey wit[Cm]h dust
[C#]Packed off o[G#]urs in evacuations[F#]
[Ebm]To farmers' wives
Green and pleasant lives
Far f[Ab]rom the doodlebu[A]gs
[A#m]Nanna Doll she still remembe[C7]rs
[Fm]Leaving town in worn-ou[Cm]t shoes
[C#]Now she's back o[G#]ut west in she[F#]ltered accommodations
[Ebm]Homes for the old where pills a[Ab]ren't the o[A]nly blues
[A#m]Tread carefully, so carefully
[A]Upon the drifting ice
[Dmaj7]Staring blank into the TV guide
[E]In 200[F]9
[A#m]How it's hurting me, I[A]'ve only seen her twice
[Dmaj7]Since you went west for the second time
[E]Since 19[F]39
