G Em C D

[Verse 1]
              G                   Em7                      
Was tryin' to make a buck playing on the street
C7                       D
When I met this man from India
           G           Em7
He startet telling me 'bout his life
C7                      D
And why he left home so young
        G               Em7                
Found a new home in the British Empire
C7                        D
For which he served over fourty years
          G                       Em7
And would jump from planes with a parachute
C7                    D
Knowing that he might die

[Pre Chorus]
       C
He was standing there right in front of me
G         G/F#    G/E    
Listening while I sing
C
He should know now much he's given me
D
Where do I begin

[Chorus]
G        Em7                  
Old man you've been blessed
C7                         D
A life with tears and with happiness
G            Em7
Who you met, who you loved
     C7                D
Your story needs to be told
G           Em7
There ain't much you've missed
C7                   D
Some were killed and some were kissed
     C7           D
From Singapore to London
C7                D              G      Em7    C7   
You hitchhiked in nineteen sixty nine
D                 G     Em7   C7    D
In nineteen sixty nine

[Verse 2]
            G                Em7
Some of the countries he was stationed in
C7                   D
Have ever since even changed their name
          G                   Em7
Where the weather was hot and where it was cold
     C7                   D
He'd go where ever he was told
      G                 Em7
Had a beautiful girl in Sweden
       C7
By the look in his eyes
    D
She must have been nice
        G                 Em7
Wonders sometimes how his life would have been
C7                    D
If he had stayed with her

[Pre Chorus]
       C
He was standing there right in front of me
G         G/F#    G/E    
Listening while I sing
C
He should know now much he's given me
D
Where do I begin

[Chorus]
G        Em7                  
Old man you've been blessed
C7                         D
A life with tears and with happiness
G            Em7
Who you met, who you loved
     C7                D
Your story needs to be told
G           Em7
There ain't much you've missed
C7                   D
Some were killed and some were kissed
     C7           D
From Singapore to London
C7                D                    C7    
You hitchhiked in nineteen sixty nine

C7                         D
A life with tears and with happiness
G            Em7
Who you met, who you loved
     C7                D
Your story needs to be told
G           Em7
There ain't much you've missed
C7                   D
Some were killed and some were kissed
     C7           D
From Singapore to London
C7                D                    C
