Verse 1
G
Two days past 18
G
He was waiting for a bus in his army greens,
C
Sat down at a booth, at a cafe there
G
Gave his order to a girl with a bow in her hair

G
He's a little shy, so she give him a smile,
G
And he said "Would you mind sitting down for a while,
C                                      
And talking to me, I'm feeling a little 
G
low?"

F                             C                       G
She said "I'm off in an hour, and I know where we can go."
G

Chorus:

Em
I cried
C
I'm never gonna hold the hand of another guy,
G
"too young, for him!" they told her
D
Waiting for the love of a travelling soldier,
Em
Our love will never end,
C
Waiting for the soldier to come back again,
G
Never more to be alone,
D
When the letter says " A soldier is coming
G
Home"
G

Verse 2:
G
So the letters came from an army camp,
G
In california, then Viet-Nam,
C
And he told her of his heart: He might be in love,
G
And all the things he was so scared of

G
He said "When it's getting kinda rough over here,
G
I think of that day sitting down at the peir,
C
And I close my eyes, and see your pretty 
G
Smile,

F                               C                   G
Now don't worry, but I won't be able to write for a while.
G

Chorus:

Em
I cried
C
I'm never gonna hold the hand of another guy,
G
"too young, for him!" they told her
D
Waiting for the love of a travelling soldier,
Em
Our love will never end,
C
Waiting for the soldier to come back again,
G
Never more to be alone,
D
When the letter says " A soldier is coming
G
Home"

Verse 3:
G
One friday night at a football game,
G
The lord's prayer said, and the anthem sang,
C
And a man said "Folk's, would you bow your head,
G
For I list a local, Viet-Nam Dead

G
Crying all alone, under the stand,
G
Was a piccolo player in the marching band
C
And one name read, and nobody really
G
cared,

F                          C                 G
But a prettly little girl, with a bow in her hair
G

Em
I cried
C
I'm never gonna hold the hand of another guy,
G
"too young, for him!" they told her
D
Waiting for the love of a travelling soldier,
Em
Our love will never end,
C
Waiting for the soldier to come back again,
G
Never more to be alone,
D
When the letter says " A soldier is coming..."
Em
I cried,
C
Never gonna hold the hand of another guy,
G
"too young, for him!" they told her
D
Waiting for the love of a travelling soldier,
Em
Our love will never end,
C
Waiting for the soldier to come back again,
G
Never more to be alone,

Good job! I think it also sounds good with those chords with a capo on 2nd fret. Depends on what kind of sound you want.

Sounds really good, buy you're missing a verse right before the first chorus :
so they went down and they sat on the pier
he said I bet you got a boyfriend but I don't care
I got no one to send a letter to
would you mind if I sent one back here to you

But other than that, great job! Im adding this to my setlist!
