 --- Intro Riff (see end of Tab) ---


            Am                          C
I saw you shining like a lighter in a foxhole

       G                           Am
and without delay I put you in my sights

                                                C
for many years I watched you dancing in my crosshairs

        G                E               Am
but I couldn't pull the trigger for my life

      F (Fmaj7)               C
but then one day I got the stones to take your hand, dear

       G                           Am
and I won you with a flower and a smile

      F (Fmaj7)                     C
though all I had to offer was a fireplace

       G          E                 Am
and a face you learned to love after awhile


 ---- Intro Riff again ---

        Am                          C
one day I was called to serve my country

       G                          Am
and I went because I'd never been away

                                    C
I returned home with a bandage on my forehead

        G                 E        Am
and a memory that gets weaker every day

         F (Fmaj7)                     C
and now you never touch me like you used to

           G                          C
and my injuries don't even start to heal

            F (Fmaj7)                      C
I was sure right then and there that I would lose you

        G             E              Am
oh how wretched your beauty makes me feel



--- Riff Variation (see end of Tab)---


         Am                          C
I used to think our love was but a trifle

            G                          Am
I was surprised it lasted through the month of May

                                 C
but now I am too old to lift my rifle

       G                   E            Am
and you're still here to watch me waste away

              F (Fmaj7)                          C
my love I've lost so many friends since we got married

        G                             Am
and I know that you could say the same to me

      F (Fmaj7)                     C
I believe I was the first to ever catch you

         G                E            Am
perhaps I should be the first to set you free


 --- Interlude ---

              Am                          C
I saw you shining like the sunlight through the window

           G                         Am
and the truth it started slowly sinking in

                                    C
and I knew when I walked the door this morning

        G                E           Am
I would never see your pretty face again

             F (Fmaj7)                     C
so don't go searching for my body in the cattails

        G                             Am
just be happy that I've found a place to rest

         F (Fmaj7)                        C
by the time you read this letter I'll be gone dear

           G                           Am
you know I love you, but this is for the best

           G               E            Am
you know I love you, but this is for the best
