Wow, this is my first Tab thing, even though this one is chords...yeah anyways... I
really like this song, and it's so sad too! So of course, I spent time figuring this
song out on the guitar, and I hope you spend time and have fun learning it as well!
Good luck!

Capo on 2nd Fret

Verse 1

Two  days past 18  he was waiting for a bus in his army greens 
    C                              G
Sat down at a booth in a cafe there, gave his order to a girl with a bow in
her hair
He's a little shy so she gives him a smile and he said would you mind 
                            C                                   G
Sitten down for a while and talking to me, I'm feeling a little low
            F                   C                    G
She said I'm off in an hour and I know where we can go

Verse 2 ( same chords as Verse 1)
So they went down and they sat on the pier he said "I bet you got a boyfriend but I
don't care I've got no one to send a letter to.  Would you mind if I sent one back here to you?"


I cried
Never gonna hold the hand of another guy
Too young, for him they told her 
Waitin for the love of a travelin soldier
Our love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone
D                                        G
When the letters said, a soldiers coming home

Verse 3:

So the letters came from an army camp, in California then Vietnam
         C                                      G
And he told her of his heart, might be lovin all of thigns he was so

scared of
He said when things were getting kinda rough over here, I think of that day 
                              C                                 G
Sittin down at the pier and I close my eyes and see your pretty smile
      F                    C                  G
Don't worry but I won't be able to write for a while

Chorus x1

One Friday night at a football game, the Lord's prayer said and the anthem 
       C                                            G
sang a man said folks would you bow your head for a list of local Vietnam 

Cryin all alone under the stands was a piccolo player in the marching band
    C                               G
And one name read and nobody really cared
      F                 C                  G
But a pretty little girl with a bow in her hair

defintely an Em at the start of the chorus, but apart from that, and a few lyrical errors (not that it matters), it's all good.
