I Fought in a War  Belle and Sebastian

same chord progression throughout whole song: Em, Am, C, B
in the first part of the song you just strike the chords once
1st Verse:
[Em] I fought in a war and I l[Am]eft my friends behind me
To go [C]looking for the enemy, and it [B]wasnt very long
[Em] Before I would stand with [Am]another boy in front of me
And a c[C]orpse that just fell into me, with the [B]bullets flying round...
1st chorus:
And I r[Em]eminded myself of the words you s[Am]aid when we were getting on
And I [C]bet youre making shells back home for a s[B]teady boy to wear
Round his n[Em]eck, well it wont hurt to think of [Am]you as if youre waiting for
This l[C]etter to arrive because Ill [B]be here quite a while
In the second part you may just use any regular strumming
like down,down,up,up,down,up
2nd verse:
[Em] I fought in a war and I l[Am]eft my friends behind me
To go l[C]ooking for the enemy, and it w[B]asnt very long
[Em] Before I found out that the s[Am]ickness there ahead of me
Went be[C]yond the bedsit infamy of the d[B]ecade gone before
2nd chorus:
And I re[Em]minded myself of the words you s[Am]aid when we were getting on
And I [C]bet youre making shells back home for a s[B]teady man to wear
Round his n[Em]eck, well it wont hurt to think of [Am]you as if youre waiting for
This l[C]etter to arrive because Ill b[B]e here quite a while

3rd Verse:
[Em] I fought in a war, and I d[Am]idnt know where it would end
It str[C]etched before me infinitely, I c[B]ouldnt really think
[Em] Of the day beyond now, keep your [Am]head down pal
Theres trouble plenty [C]in this hour, this day
I can see h[B]ope I can see light
3rd Chorus
And I re[Em]minded myself of the looks you g[Am]ave when we were getting on
And I [C]bet youre making shells back home for a s[B]teady man to wear
Round his n[Em]eck, well it wont hurt to think of [Am]you as if youre waiting for
This l[C]etter to arrive because Ill b[B]e here quite a while
