C                            F
Robert was a sailor, For the best years of his life
    F               C                             G                
His captain was his mother, And the ocean was his wife
     C                                           F
Only fresh out of the cradle, Lifes one and only spring
                       C             G                       C
He was sworn to do his duty, And got blood on his highschool ring



Chorus:
C
And its hello california
              F
Hello dad and mom
               C
Ship ahoy Your baby boy
                 G
Is home from vietnam
         C
Dont you ask me any questions
                      F
bout the medals on my chest
                         C
Take the star out of the window
           G                 C
And let my conscience take a rest



(Rpeat Intro)


C
Now he sailed across the ocean
                       F
To the old far eastern war
                          C
And it was foreign to his body
                      G
It was foreign to his shore
      C 
So he traded in the present
                         F
For the better times hed seen
                     C
And made an oriental waitress
    G              C
His own home comin queen


(repeat chorus)
