Tour of Duty
By Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit 
from the album "Here We Rest"

    G
I'm arriving on the day's last train
                                     G7
Stepping on the platform, trying to see you through the rain
         C
I don't know the ways you've changed since I left
                    G
and I really don't care
      D                            C                          G
I've done my tour of duty now I'm home and I ain't going anywhere

    G 
I taught myself to tolerate the pain
                                        G7
all the loneliness and boredom and the work I did in vain
         C                                             G
All the work we did in vain. Now I'm not the same as I was
       D                            C                       G
I've done my tour of duty now I'll try to do what a civilian does

    B/G           C                 G                              
I promise not to bore you with my stories
    B/G            C                 D
I promise not to scare you with my tears
   B/G           C             G
I never would exaggerate the glory
              D
I'll seem so satisfied here

           G             
I've been eating like I'm out on bail
                                     G7
Collard greens and chicken wings and oysters by the pail
       C                                              G
Eating oysters by the pail, making up for those lost days
            D                            C                              G
Cause I've done my tour of duty now I'm going to put you in the family way


Mandolin solo over verse chords

      B/G                 C               G
We'll laugh like little children telling secrets
         B/G           C              D
Probably cry like old women drinking gin
              G                            C
because I've done my tour of duty now I'm home
                           G
and I ain't leaving here again
      D                            C                               G
I've done my tour of duty now I'm home and I ain't leaving here again
