G                                       D7
Well I used to hang out down at the VFW hall

                                       G
And stare at the photographs up on the wall

                                                          D7
Of the neighborhood boys that died in the wars we've been through

                                                    G
And the hand lettered sign that said remember Jimmy McGrew


                                 D7
Well Jimmy went to Nam back in 1965

                                                              G
But there's a lot of men here that think Jimmy McGrew's still alive

                                                     D7
Though they carved his name on a stone in Washington DC

                                                   G
His brother said that stone don't prove a thing to me


               C                     G
It's veteran's day and the skies are gray

                                                       D7
Leave the uniforms home cause there ain't gonna be a parade

          G                                                C
But we'll fill up a glass for the ones that didn't make it through

            G                     D7              G
And leave a light in the window tonight for Jimmy McGrew


                                                     D7
There's a hot rain falling on the back streets of Saigon

                                                              G
There's an old soldier stumbling down the alley with his mama-san

                                                    D7
Lord his eyes are cloudy and his arms are black and blue

                                                      G
He's just hanging by a thread and he looks like Jimmy McGrew


               C                     G
It's veteran's day and the skies are gray

                                                       D7
Leave the uniforms home cause there ain't gonna be a parade

          G                                                C
But we'll fill up a glass for the ones that didn't make it through

            G                     D7              G
And leave a light in the window tonight for Jimmy McGrew



And keep it burning bright there may still be
 

A lot of Jimmy McGrews over there

                                                           C
But we'll fill up a glass for the ones that didn't make it through

            G                     D7              G
And leave a light in the window tonight for Jimmy McGrew
