Woman in a War 
Fred Smith

Bm
I was working up in Kabul In the last years of the war
A                                                       Bm
Khasi had decide he didn’t love us any more
Bm
The town was full of checkpoints and Security companies
A                                                       Bm
And everyone with money had an exit strategy

Bm                                      
She came in in December to work the state
A                                                               Bm      
She was on a second posting across form Kuwait
Bm
I met her at a briefing down at I SEF H Q
A                                                               Bm
Some Colonel was pretending that he knew what to do

Bm
There’s nothing quite as sexy as a woman in a war
A                                                  Bm
A delicate reminder of what we’re fighting for
Bm
She said the word ‘kenetic’ like she’d seen it for real
A                                                               Bm
She was her daddies daughter with her daddies ideals

But she said:

Em                              Bm
“ Pay no heed to what they say 
A                       Bm      
Notice only what they do…...”

Bm
There’s nothing quite as horny as a woman in a war
A                                                               Bm
The sugared instant coffee the adrenalin and more
Bm                                              
There’s nothing like the hunger for some softness in the night
A                                                               Bm
When you wake up every morning with a war to fight

Still she’d say: Refrain

Bm
A couple of months later in a dutton covered bar
A                                                               Bm
We’d been on a trip together with the General in Mazah
Bm
We got talking about the problems of the ANSF
A                                               Bm
It was getting late and the others all had left

Bm
I came a little closer two of us were left
A                                                               Bm
We could die tomorrow tonight ..I need you for my bed
Bm
Back in my hooch I got a bottle of Jack
A                                                               Bm
My dick was claiming victory like Bush in Iraq

And she said:

Bm
“I’ve enjoyed our conversation and your offer is bold
A                                                               Bm
Your loquacious admiration of the problems you can’t solve
Bm
But these are not your problems this is not your war
A                                                               Bm
You only really come here because you were bored

Bm
“So go back to your family and your ordinary lives
A                                               Bm
Your ordinary children and your ordinary wife
Bm
I’m not your mother your virgin or whore
A                                       Bm
Simply a survivor of a woman in a war”

Bm, Em, A, Bm, Bm, Em, E7

Bm
I was workin up in Kabul in the last year of the war
