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 G 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 G 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?" Chorus: Am I cried C Never gonna hold the hand of another guy G Too young, for him they told her D Waitin for the love of a travelin soldier Am Our love will never end C Waitin' for the soldier to come back again G Never more to be alone D G When the letters said, a soldiers coming home Verse 3: G 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 G 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 G 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 dead G 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 Chorus x2
