in the first part of the song you just strike the chords once

1st Verse:

Em                          A
   I fought in a war and I left my friends behind me

      C                             B   
To go looking for the enemy, and it wasnt very long

Em                           A  
   Before I would stand with another boy in front of me
                                                
       C                                      B
And a corpse that just fell into me, with the bullets flying round...


1st chorus:

       G                                Am
And I reminded myself of the words you said when we were getting on

      C                                        B
And I bet youre making shells back home for a steady boy to wear

           G                                   Am
Round his neck, well it wont hurt to think of you as if youre waiting for

      C                           B
This letter to arrive because Ill be here quite a while


In the second 
down,down,up,up,down,up


2nd verse:

Em                          A
   I fought in a war and I left my friends behind me

       C                             B  
To go looking for the enemy, and it wasnt very long

Em                              A       
   Before I found out that the sickness there ahead of me

       C                              B         
Went beyond the bedsit infamy of the decade gone before


2nd chorus:     

        G                               Am      
And I reminded myself of the words you said when we were getting on

      C                                        B        
And I bet youre making shells back home for a steady man to wear

           G                                  Am
Round his neck, well it wont hurt to think of you as if youre waiting for

      C                            B            
This letter to arrive because Ill be here quite a while

3rd Verse:

Em                           A  
   I fought in a war, and I didnt know where it would end

      C                               B
It stretched before me infinitely, I couldnt really think

Em                                  A   
   Of the day beyond now, keep your head down pal

                      C
Theres trouble plenty in this hour, this day

           B
I can see hope I can see light


3rd Chorus

        G                               Am                              
And I reminded myself of the looks you gave when we were getting on

      C                                        B
And I bet youre making shells back home for a steady man to wear

           G                                  Am        
Round his neck, well it wont hurt to think of you as if youre waiting for

      C                            B
This letter to arrive because Ill be here quite a while

The Em on the chorus should be a G.

But other than that, it was a solid tab.

It is definitely NOT the same chord progression throughout the whole song.

The Am in all the verses (but only the verses) should be A major. And, as said above, the Em in the chorus should be a G.
