Verse:
 A
 Two days past 18, he was waiting for a bus in his army greens,
 D
 Sat down at a booth, at a cafe there,
 A
 Gave his order to a girl with a bow in her hair.

 A
 He's a little shy, so she give him a smile,
 A
 And he said: "Would you mind sitting down for a while,
     D                                   A   
 And talking to me, I'm feeling a little low?"
                G                   D                    A     (A)
 She said: "I'm off in an hour, and I know where we can go."
 
 A                    
 So they went down and they sat on the pier,
             A         
 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?"


Chorus:

 F#m          D
 I cried, I'm never gonna hold the hand of another guy,
A
 Too young for him, they told her.
 E                         E7
 Waiting for the love of a travelling soldier.
F#m
 Our love will never end,
 D
 Waiting for the soldier to come back again.
A
 Never more to be alone,
          E              E7                A      (A)
 When the letter says: A soldier's coming home.


Verse:
 A
 So the letters came from an army camp,
    A
 In California, then Vietnam.
         D
 And he told her of his heart, he might be in love,
     A
 And all the things he was so scared of

    A
 He said: "When it's getting kinda rough over here,
   A
 I think of that day sitting down at the peir,
       D                                    A
 And I close my eyes, and see your pretty smile,
          G                      D                   A
 Now don't worry, but I won't be able to write for a while."


Chorus:

 F#m          D
 I cried, I'm never gonna hold the hand of another guy,
A
 Too young for him, they told her.
 E                         E7
 Waiting for the love of a travelling soldier.
F#m
 Our love will never end,
 D
 Waiting for the soldier to come back again.
A
 Never more to be alone,
          E              E7                A      (A)
 When the letter says: A soldier's coming home.

Verse:
     A
 One Friday night at a football game,
     A
 The Lord's prayer said, and the anthem sang,
       D
 And a man said: "Folk's, would you bow your head,
     A
 For a list of the local, Vietnam dead."

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

      G                   D                 A
But a pretty little girl, with a bow in her hair.

Chorus:

 F#m          D
 I cried, I'm never gonna hold the hand of another guy,
A
 Too young for him, they told her.
 E                         E7
 Waiting for the love of a travelling soldier.
F#m
 Our love will never end,
 D
 Waiting for the soldier to come back again.
A
 Never more to be alone,
          E              E7                
 When the letter says: A soldier's coming...
 F#m          D
 I cried, I'm never gonna hold the hand of another guy,
A
 Too young for him, they told her.
 E                         E7
 Waiting for the love of a travelling soldier.
F#m
 Our love will never end,
 D
 Waiting for the soldier to come back again.
A
 Never more to be alone,
          E              E7                A      (A)
 When the letter says: A soldier's coming home.

A    D   (repeat til fade!)
