About this tab version
Fred plays this very touching song with a capo on 7th fret using a F C G which sounds terrific but my fat fingers just dont fit up that end of the fret board. The song is on U tube for you to hear. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Sappers Lullaby – Fred Smith

[Verse 1]
C               G            G            D      C          G      D 
Up past from the Role 2, and down past the gate, out to the flight line
C                G     G           D      C         D        G 
We stood in the sun, slouch hat and gun as two caskets passed us by

C               G          G              D         C            G   D 
We  followed the Padre, onto the Herc. And out into the pale summer sky
C                  G       G               D       C             D            G 
We walked back to Poppy's, and went back to work, with the Dust still in our eyes

[Chorus]
C      G     G     D   C            G   D 
So soldiers, sing me, a sapper's lullaby
C            G          G                  D         
You give it your all,  Knowing if you should fall
C            D            G 
That all good things must die

[Verse 2]
C             G          G                D         C            G   D 
These young engineers, whose job is to clear the roads that we may pass
C             G         G                 D        C     D      G 
Always out front, and when they bear the brunt, man it happens fast

C         G          G          D     C            G   D 
Sapper D Smith had a wife and a son, the apple of his eye
C         G       G     D    C      D      G 
Snowy Moreland was just 21, way to young to die

[Chorus]
C      G     G     D   C            G   D 
So soldiers, sing me, a sapper's lullaby
C            G          G                  D         
You give it your all,  Knowing if you should fall
C            D            G 
That all good things must die

[Verse 3]
C                 G      G           D     C      G        D 
So go call your mother, call your old man, on the welfare line
C                G      G           D      C        D            G 
Tell em you love em, while you still can, cause all good things must die

[Chorus]
C      G     G     D   C            G   D 
So soldiers, sing me, a sapper's lullaby
C            G          G                  D         
You give it your all,  Knowing if you should fall
C            D            G 
That all good things must die
