this is my 1st tab, so it may not be the exactly right, but it sounds really good. you
want to capo the 1st fret, but it sounds good either way. have fun, it is a great song,
fun to sing with. oh, do a country strum with it or pick. a country strum is down, down, 
down, down up... you get the point.

F#m (244222), C7 (020100)


Intro: B  D  A
or you can play A, D, F#m, then C7
which ever you choose will sound good

A
Two days past eighteen

He was waiting for the bus in his army greens
       D
Sat down in a booth in a cafe there
A
Gave his order to a girl with a bow in her hair
A
He's a little shy so she gave him a smile

So he said would you mind sitting down for a while
        D
And talking to me
                          A
I'm feeling a little low
                     G
She said I'm off in an hour
        D                               A
And I know where we can go
A
So they went down and they sat on the pier

He said I bet you got a boyfriend but I don't care
   D                                     A
I got no one to send a letter to
G                          D                      A
Would you mind if I sent one back here to you
F#m    D
I cried never gonna hold the hand of another guy
A
Too young for him they told her

C7
Waiting for the love of the travellin soldier
F#m
My love will never end

D
Waiting for the soldier to come back again
A                                                 C7
Never more to be alone when the letter says
                               A
My soldiers coming home
A
The letters came from an army camp

In California and Viet Nam
      D
He told her of his heart and it might be love
        A
And all of the things he was so scared of
A
He said when it's getting kinda rough over here

I think of that day sitting down at the pier
          D                                                  A
And I close my eyes and see your pretty smile
          G
Don't worry but
                 D                       A
I won't be able to write for awhile
F#m    D
I cried never gonna hold the hand of another guy
A
Too young for him they told her
C7
Waiting for the love of the travellin soldier
F#m
My love will never end
D
Waiting for the soldier to come back again
A                                                   C7
Never more to be alone when the letter says
                                 A
My soldiers coming home

SOLO

A
One Friday night at a football game

The lords prayer said and the anthem sang
        D
The man said

Folks would you bow your head
             A
For the list of local Viet Name dead
A
Crying all alone under the stands

Was the picolo player in the marching band

         D                                            A
And one name read nobody really cared
         G                                 D                A
But a pretty little girl with a bow in her hair
F#m    D
I cried never gonna hold the hand of another guy
A
Too young for him they told her
C7
Waiting for the love of the travellin soldier
F#m
My love will never end
D
Waiting for the soldier to come back again
A                                                   C7
Never more to be alone when the letter says

My soldiers coming
                                 A
My soldiers coming home.

Ok, I think the C7 should be an E. Also, on "Gave his order to a girl with a bow in her hair" its listed as just the A chord, but on "bow", you should strum G. And then further down "He told her of his heart and it might be love. And all the things he was so scared of." Its listed as D on "he told her", then A on "and all", but i think it should be D, on "he told her", then A on "and it might be love" at the end of that line. Then, play G, rather than A on "and all the things he was so scared of." Those are my suggestions, hope it helps! Its a pretty song, good job tabbing it out!
