VERSE 1
********

He was first one out of the landing craft 
         G                     Am
When the ramp hit the churning sand 

He was first one out of the red-cross train
       G 
To the sound of the big brass band 
       C                     G
He was first in line for his demob suit 
         Am                  Em
When the war he'd fought was won 
        Am
Then he settled down, rebuilt his town 
G                   Am
Thought his job was done 


-------------------
CHORUS
*******
            G               Am
Fifty years on, fifty years on 
                        G
He's grown too old, his house is sold 
    C               E
And all his money's gone 
     Am                                    G
Like him, it's thrown to the nursing home 
            Am
Fifty years on 


-------------------
VERSE 2
********

She ferried fighters through the sky 
    G                 Am
She flew the big ones too 

There was no job the air force had 
    G 
She felt she couldn't do 
     C                    G
From dawn she'd toil with plug and coil 
    Am             Em
Her scent was oily rag 
    Am
Her mad days and her salad days 
G            Am
Given to the flag 


-------------------
CHORUS
*******
            G               Am
Fifty years on, fifty years on 
                           G
Her face is bruised, she's been abused 
    C                E
And all her spirit's gone 
       Am                                   G
He was just a child, but the kids are wild 
            Am
Fifty years on 


-------------------
BRIDGE
*******
            G               Am
Fifty years on, fifty years gone 
            F               C                      E
And they've lost a war they could have sworn they'd won 
            G               Am
Fifty years on, fifty years gone 
        F                                       C                   E
And the kids say please to the Japanese, can we work for the new Nippon 
            Am
Fifty years on 


-------------------
VERSE 3
********

Yes, the kids are wild and on the street 
G           Am
Fifty years on 

But the courts are mild when they mug and beat 
G  
Fifty years on 
          C                          G
They were youngsters then, they were boys not men 
Am                 Em
Girls who grew too fast 
          Am
They were our front line, now it's me and mine 
        G             Am
And the old ones come last 


-------------------
CHORUS
*******
            G               Am
Fifty years on, fifty years on 
                             G
They're fighting still, they always will 
    C            E
But with so many gone 
     Am                                  G
They stand with pride, but someone lied
            Am
Fifty years on


-------------------
BRIDGE
*******
            G               Am
Fifty years on, fifty years gone 
            F               C                      E
And they've lost a war they could have sworn they'd won 
            G               Am
Fifty years on, fifty years gone 
        F                                       C                   E
And the kids say please to the Japanese, can we work for the new Nippon 
            Am         G
Fifty years on, time's passed 
            Am          G
Fifty years on, they're last 
            Am
Fifty years on
