INTRO (see above)
| F | Dm | Bbmaj7 | G |
We met as [Dm/F]soul mates on [G7]Parris [C]Island,
We [C/E]left as [Dm/F]inmates from [G7]an a[C]sylum
And we were [Em]sharp,[Am] as sharp as [Em]knives[Am]
And we were [Dm]so gung-ho to [Dm/C]lay down our liv[G/B]es[F/A] [G]
We came in [Dm/F]spastic like [G7]tameless [C]horses,
We [C/E]left in [Dm/F]plastic as [G7]numbered [C]corpses
And we learned [Em]fast[Am] to travel [Em]light, [Am]
Our arms were [Dm]heavy but our [Dm/C]bellies were [Bb]tight
INTRO 2 (see above)
| Bb | G | D | G7 |
We had no [Dm/F]home front, we [G7]had no [C]soft soap
They [C/E]sent us [Dm/F]Playboy, they [G7]gave us [C]Bob Hope
We dug in [Em]dee[Am]p and shot on [Em]sight[Am]
And prayed to [Dm]Jesus Christ with [Dm/C]all of our mig[G/B]ht[F/A] [G]
We had no [Dm/F]cameras to [G7]shoot the [C]landscape
We [C/E]passed the [Dm/F]hash pipe and [G7]played our [C]Doors tapes
And it was [Em]dark[Am], so dark at [Em]night[Am]
And we held [Dm]on to each other, like [Dm/C]brother to brother,
We [Bb]promised our [F/A]mothers we'd [Gm]write
[C/Bb]And we would [F/A]all go [Bb]down to[C]gether,[C/Bb]
We said we'd [F/A]all go [Bb]dow[G7/B]n to[C]gether,[C/Bb]
Yes, we would [F/A]all go [Bb]dow[Dm/A]n to[(G7)]gether
INTRO 3 (see above)
| G | F | Dm | G7 |
Remember [Dm/F]Charlie, re[G7]member [C]Baker,
They [C/E]left their [Dm/F]childhood on [G7]every [C]acre
And who was [Em]wrong[Am]? And who was [Em]right?[Am]
It didn't [Dm]matter in the [Dm/C]thick of the [(Bb)]fight
INTRO 4 (see above)
| Bb | G |
[Am]We [G/B]held the [C]day [Dm]in the [E]palm [Dm/F]of our [E]hand[E-9] [E] [E7]
[Am]They [G/B]ruled the [C]night [Dm]and the [E]night [Dm/F]seemed to [G]last as long as
[Dm/F]Six weeks on [G7]Parris [C]Island
We [C/E]held the [Dm/F]coastline, they [G7]held the [C]highlands,
And they were [Em]sharp,[Am] as sharp as [Em]knives,[Am]
They heard the [Dm]hum of motors, they [Dm/C]counted the rotors
And [Bb]waited for u[F/A]s to ar[Gm]rive
[C/Bb]And we would [F/A]all go [Bb]down to[C]gether,[C/Bb]
We said we'd [F/A]all go [Bb]dow[G7/B]n to[C]gether,[C/Bb]
Yes, we would [F/A]all go [Bb]dow[Dm/A]n to[(G)]gether
INTRO 5 (see above)
| G | F |
OUTRO (see above)
| Dm | Bbmaj7 | G | F |
