The Levellers – The Recruiting Sergeant

G
Over the mountains
    Am
And over the seas
   C         G
By Hercules transporter
   C          Am
To fight the Afghani
       C           G
With a rifle in my hand
   Am              Em
To set the country free
         G             Am
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
       Am                   Em
Do you know the shit you’re in
       G           Am
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 Hercules transporter
   C          Am
To fight the Afghani
       C           G
With a rifle in my hand
   Am              Em
To set the country free
         G             Am
Its your picture in my pocket
           D             G
That means everything to me

G
I know I’ve 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 you’re a disgrace boy
    Am                     Em
And that’s you’re fucking crime
     G                 Am
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 Hercules transporter
   C          Am
To fight the Afghani
       C           G
With a rifle in my hand
   Am              Em
To set the country free
         G             Am
Its your picture in my pocket
           D             G
That means everything to me

G
Now I´m 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
    Am                  Em
Im still in the pay of thieves
        G                  Am
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 Hercules transporter
   C          Am
To fight the Afghani
       C           G
With a rifle in my hand
   Am              Em
To set the country free
         G             Am
Its your picture in my pocket
           D             G
That means everything to me

G
Don’t 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
    Am                 Em
And cry each year this day
          G                  Am
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 Hercules transporter
   C          Am
To fight the Afghani
       C           G
With a rifle in my hand
   Am              Em
To set the country free
         G             Am
Its your picture in my pocket
           D             G
That means everything to me

G
Over the mountains
    Am
And over the seas
   C         G
By Hercules transporter
   C          Am
To fight the Afghani

With a rifle in my hand
   Am              Em
To set the country free
         G             Am
Its your picture in my pocket
           D             G
That means everything to me
         G             Am
Its your picture in my pocket
           D             G
That means everything to me
