Two days past 18, he was waitin for a bus in his army greens
sat down in a booth, at a cafe there
gave his order to a girl with a bow in her hair

hes a little shy so she give him a smile
and he said would you mind sitting down for a while, and talking
Im feeling a little low
            D                  C                   G/B
she said im off in an hour and I know where we can go

so they went down and they sat on the peir

he said I bet you got a boyfriend but I dont care
    C                           G/B
Ive got noone, to send a letter to
           D              C                G/B
would you mind if I sent one back here to you?

Em        C
I cried, never gonna hold the hand of another guy,
too young for him they told her
waiting for the love of a travelling soldier
Em                        C   
our love will never end, waiting for that soldier to come back again
never gonna be alone
           D                         G/B
when the letter said, soldiers coming home,

so the letters came from an army camp, in california then veitnam

and he told her of his heart, it might be love

and all of the things he was so scared of

he said when its getting kinda rough over here

I think of that day sitting down at the pier

and I close my eyes and see your pretty smile

dont worry but I wont be able to write for a while


(half time)

one friday night at a football game

the lords prayer said and the anthem sang

and the man said folks, would you bow your heads 

for a list of local veitnam vets

crying all alone under the stands

was a pickalo player in a marching band

and one name read, nobody really cared

except a pretty little girl, with a bow in her hair

(chorus x2)

Hey, these chords are really accurate, I used capo on 2nd fret because i think it sounds more like how she sings it... but besides addin the capo it was awesome!!!

I agree it's likely to have capo in it somewhere. She sings in quite a high key.
