This version of "Done With Bonaprte" is based on the performance at the 2007 AVO Session which was performed
in C. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPO02BvAu6g
Both Mark Knopfler and his acoustic guitarist played the song in G with the capo on the 5th fret, which is how
I've done it here.
NOTES:
  *   The "G" chord played over the last syllable of the chorus ("-parte") is actually the 1st chord of the
      following instrumental.
  **  The last line of the outro slows down.

[Intro]
G        C        Am7      D
G        C        Cmaj7    D
G        C        Am7      D
G        Cadd9    D        G

[Instrumental]
G        C        Am7      D
G        C        Cmaj7    D
G        C        Am7      D
G        Cadd9    D        G

[Verse 1]
      Em
We've paid in hell since Moscow burned
      G
These Cossacks tear us piece by piece
    D
Our dead are strewn a hundred leagues
       Cmaj7
Though death would be a sweet release
        Em
And our Grande Armée is dressed in rags
G
Frozen starving beggar band
     D
Like rats we steal each other's scraps
C                D            C    G
Fall to fighting hand to hand

[Chorus]
C
Save my soul from evil, Lord
G                   Em
Heal this soldier's heart
G                Am     
Trust in thee to keep me, Lord
    C     N.C          G
I'm done     with Bona-parte

[Instrumental]
*        C        Am7      D
G        C        Cmaj7    D
G        C        Am7      D
G        Cadd9    D        G

[Verse 2]
     Em
What dreams he made for us to dream
G
Spanish skies, Egyptian sands
    D
The world was ours, we marched upon
    Cmaj7
Our little Corporal's command
      Em
And I lost an eye at Austerlitz
    G
The sabre slash yet gives me pain
   D
My one true love awaits me still
    C             D           C     G
The flower of the aquitaine

[Chorus]
C
Save my soul from evil, Lord
G                   Em
Heal this soldier's heart
     G                Am     
I'll trust in thee to keep me, Lord
    C     N.C          G
I'm done     with Bona-parte

[Instrumental]
*        C        Am7      D
G        C        Cmaj7    D
G        C        Am7      D
G        Cadd9    D        G

[Verse 3]
  Em
I pray for her who prays for me
  G
A safe return to my belle France
   D
We prayed these wars would end all wars
   C
In war we know is no romance
Em
Pray our child will never see
  G
A little corporal again
D
Point toward a foreign shore
C             D               C     G
Captivate the hearts of men

[Chorus]
C
Save my soul from evil, Lord
G                   Em
Heal this soldier's heart
          G                Am     
Well I'll trust in thee to keep me, Lord
    C     N.C          G
I'm done     with Bona-parte

[Instrumental]
*        C        Am7      D
G        C        Cmaj7    D
