My first tab :) Enjoy
Cadd9: either x32030 or 335533
[G]Two days past 18
He was waitin' for the bus in his army greens
[Cadd9]Sat down in a booth at a cafe there
Gave his o[G]rder to the girl with a bow in her hair
He's a little shy so she gave him a smile
So he said would you mind sittin' down for a while
And talk[Cadd9]in' to me I'm feelin' a little[G] low
She said I'm [A]off in an hour and I [C]know where we can go
[G]So they went down and they sat on the pier
He said I bet you got a boyfriend but I don't care
I'v[Cadd9]e got no one to send a letter [G]to
Would you [A]mind if I sent on[C]e back here to you?
[Em]I cried
[C]Never gonna hold the hand of another[G] guy
Too young for him they told her
[D]Waitin' for the love of the travelin' soldier
[Em]Our love will never end
[C]Waitin' for the soldier to come back ag[G]ain
Never more to be alone
When the[D] letter says a soldier's comin[G]g home
[G]So the letters came from an army camp
In California then Vietnam
And he t[Cadd9]old his heart
It might be love
And [G]all of the things he was so scared of
Said when it's gettin kinda rough over here
I think about that day sittin' down at the pier
An[Cadd9]d close my eyes and see your pret[G]ty smile
Now don't [A]worry but I won't be a[C]ble to write for a whi[G]le
G (strum once then mute)
One Friday night at a football game
The L[G]ord's Prayer said and the anthem sang
A man [Cadd9]said folks would you bo[G]w your heads
(don't strum) (pause)
For the list of local Vietnam dead
[G]Cryin' all alone under the stands
Was the piccolo player in the marching band
And [Cadd9]none name read, nobody really c[G]ared
But a p[A]retty little girl [C]with a bow in her hair
CHORUS (twice)
