Levellers – The Recruiting Sergeant

This is my first submission to UG. As far as I can tell this is an accurate 
representation of this song.
Please comment and rate. Levellheaded

G
Over the mountains
    Am
And over the seas
   C        G
By Hurcules transporter
   C         Am
To fight the Afghani
       C           G
With a rifle in my hand
   C       Am
To set the country free
         G             C
Its your picture in my pocket
           D             G
That means everything to me

G
So I fixed up the alarm
    Am
And broken half way in
       C              G
When a security guard appears
    C               Am
And busts me on the chin
   C                  G
He kicks me round and says
       C                   Am
Do you know the shit youre in
       G           C
I said I was on me arse mate
      D             G
Meant no offence to him


G
Over the mountains
    Am
And over the seas
   C        G
By Hurcules transporter
   C         Am
To fight the Afghani
       C           G
With a rifle in my hand
   C       Am
To set the country free
         G             C
Its your picture in my pocket
           D             G
That means everything to me

G
I know Ive let you down babe
Am
Trying to make ends meat
       C                   G
When I met this recruiting sergeant
       C                 Am
By the courthouse on the street
   C               G
He said youre a disgrace boy
    C                   Am
And thats youre fucking crime
     G                C
Then somebody got the drinks in
      D                    G
And I signed on the dotted line


G
Over the mountains
    Am
And over the seas
   C        G
By Hurcules transporter
   C         Am
To fight the Afghani
       C           G
With a rifle in my hand
   C       Am
To set the country free
         G             C
Its your picture in my pocket
           D             G
That means everything to me


G
Now Im sucking dust in Helmand
Am
Dug into Lashkar Gar
          C              G
Where the local weed and opium
      C           Am
Beats any British bar
  C                    G
I know as we lay there dreaming
   C                   Am
Im still in the pay of thieves
       G                  C
And Im rushing back to be with you
  D              G
Upon this desert breeze


G
Over the mountains
    Am
And over the seas
   C        G
By Hurcules transporter
   C         Am
To fight the Afghani
       C           G
With a rifle in my hand
   C       Am
To set the country free
         G             C
Its your picture in my pocket
           D             G
That means everything to me

G
Dont follow me to die boys
   Am
In bloody Kandahar
         C             G
With the eerie glow of tracers
         C              Am
Lighting every wretched scar
    C                G	
And say a prayer for me
    C                  Am
And cry each year this day
          G                C
So if you see a recruiting sergeant boys
D         G
Run, run away


G
Over the mountains
    Am
And over the seas
   C        G
By Hurcules transporter
   C         Am
To fight the Afghani
       C           G
With a rifle in my hand
   C       Am
To set the country free
         G             C
Its your picture in my pocket
           D             G
That means everything to me
