   D7 Am            D7 Am            D7 Am            D7 Am
|  /__/  /  /  / |  /__/  /  /  / |  /__/  /  /  / |  /__/  /  /  / |

 
Am                                               E7
I was only just fifteen, when I took a shilling from the king,
            Am                          D                E7
And the Quartermaster winked at me, he knew I'd lied a - bout my age,
    Am                                          E7
I learnt to take apart my gun, and feel tobacco in my lungs,
    D         D        Am      E7         Am
And we would roll our cigar - ettes with Bible pages!


    Am                                                    E7
And as we marched up to the line, 'knew we'd be back by winter time,
    Am                                       D                 E7
But we soon learnt only the blind... could find their way back home,
    Am                                          E7
And all through Deuteronomy, I cursed whatever had made me,
    D         D        Am      E7         Am
And we would roll our cigar - ettes with Bible pages!


Dm                                      Am
    There's no heaven, there's no hell,     not as far as I can tell,
Dm                                     E7                   E7  E7/D  E7/D E7/B
    There's no Devil, there's no God, only men and mud!   |  /   /     /    /  |


 Am                                                        E7
When the brass would come around, we'd stand our feet sunk in the ground,
       Am                                            D             E7
They'd say we'd made our country proud, but their England was not mine,
    Am                                              E7
And we must be prepared to die, but they forgot to tell us why,
    D         D        Am      E7         Am
And we would roll our cigar - ettes with Bible pages!


Dm                                      Am
    There's no heaven, there's no hell,     not as far as I can tell,
Dm                                     E7                   E7  E7/D  E7/D E7/B
    There's no Devil, there's no God, only men and mud!   |  /   /     /    /  |


Am                                                         E7
I'd not long turned seventeen, when I took the one that finished me,
       Am                                 D               E7
And I must have lain so peacefully, be - neath the broken sky,
    Am                                              E7
And so they took my life away, and what would the Chaplain say,
        D       D          Am     E7         Am
If he knew we rolled our cigar - ettes with Bible pages,
        D      D        Am      E7        Am
All we had to roll our cigar - ettes was Bible pages!
