Billy Don't Be A Hero - Doug Anthony All Stars
(Tanscribed from 12 to 6 string)

G
(This song goes out to all of those correct Vietnam films,
films like Hamburger Hill, and Tour of Duty, and Priscilla Queen of the Desert... )

Am                    D
The marching band came down along mainstreet,
G
The soldier blues fell in behind.
Am                  D
I looked across and there I saw Billy,
Em               G
Waiting to go and join the line.
Am                  D
And with her head upon his shoulder,
Am                  D
His young and lovely fiancee.
Am                  D
From where I stood I saw she was crying,
Am                      D
And through her tears I heard her say:
("Billy, don't go off to war. If you go to war you can fucking consider yourself 
dropped, 'cause I'm not going to make love to you if you're an armless, legless corpse.")

G
Billy don't be a hero,
          Am
Don’t be a fool with your life.
Am7
Billy don't be a hero,
             G
Come back and make me your wife.
      G              G7
And as Billy started to go,
         Am                     C
She said "Keep your pretty head low."
G                D                  G
Billy don't be a hero, Come back to me.

Am                     D
The soldier blues were trapped on a hillside,
G
The battle raging all around.
Am                      D
The sergeant said "We've got to hang on boys.
Em                   G
We've go to hold this piece of ground.
Am            D
I need a volunteer to ride up,
Am           D
And bring us back some extra men."
Am                   D
And Billy's hand was up in a moment,
Am                D
Forgetting all the words she said.

G
Billy don't be a hero,
          Am
Don't be a fool with your life.
Am7
Billy don't be a hero,
              G
Come back and make me your wife.
      G              G7
And as Billy started to go,
         Am                     C
She said "Where did Billy's head go?"
G                D                  G
Billy don't be a hero, Come back to me.

(and then I saw a helicopter flip upside down and Vic Maro's head went thwboom!
the average IQ of the fighting soldier in vietnam was nineteen... nineteen...
nananananananana na na na na)

Am              D
I heard his fiancee got a letter,
(ding dong! Telgram ma’am! Why thank you! Sorry about the door..)
G
Saying how Billy died that day. (horribly... oh my god, billy.. ooh I like the new wallpaper...)
Am                      D
The letter said that he was a hero,
(blah blah blah… he was a herod. A herod? Oh no wait that’s just a bit of pus on my 
contact lens…)
Em                      G
She should be proud he died that way.
Em                   D       G
I heard she threw the letter away.
            G                G7
And as the mailman started to go,
        Am                    Cm
He said "Keep your pretty head low."
(billy? Ooh wah ooh!!!)
G               D                  G
Billy don't be a hero, Come back to me!
