H[D]ello darling, th[B7]is is the army,
I've j[Em]ust got the time to write,
Tod[A]ay we attack, there's no turning back,
The b[D]oys they're all r[G]eady for the f[D]ight,[A]
Y[D]es, I'm well but this pl[B7]ace is like hell,
They c[Em]all it Passchendaele,
In n[A]ineteen seventeen the war must be ending,
The General s[D]aid this att[G]ack will not f[D]ail,
So I'm wr[G]iting down this simple little m[F#]elody
When you pl[Bm]ay it my l[F#m]ove, think of m[Em]e..[F#].
We'll be tog[Em]ether in this s[D]ong f[A]or y[D]ou,[Em]
And [A]it goes [D]La la la[B7]...[Em] [A] [D] [G] [D]
S[A]ing it darling, [D]La la la[B7]...[Em] [A] [D] [G] [D] [A]
( Tab from: )
They g[D]ot old Bill and the S[B7]ergeant is still out there,
W[Em]ounded in some shellhole,
They s[A]ay this war will end all wars,
Oh G[D]od I really h[G]ope it w[D]ill,[A]
Oh h[D]ow's old England, [B7]are they still singing
Those s[Em]ongs that we loved to sing,
When [A]all this is over, we'll go sailing in Dover,
Catching f[D]ish like we [G]used to with a str[D]ing,
Oh I m[G]iss you, I miss you, I m[F#]iss you so!
If they g[Bm]et me my l[F#m]ove you will kn[Em]ow.[F#]..
We'll always be tog[Em]ether in this s[D]ong f[A]or y[D]ou.[Em]..
And [A]it goes [D]La la la[B7]...[Em] [A] [D] [G] [D]
I h[A]ave to go now.[D]..[B7] [Em] [A] [D] [G] [D] [A] [D] [B7] [Em] [A] [D] [G] [D] [A] [D] [B7] [Em] [A] [D] [G] [D] [A]
