[Intro]
         G6      C
They're called Bui-Doi.
             G
The dust of life.
    G7       C
Conceived in Hell,
   C7         F    Dm
And born in strife.
                C       G       E7       Am
They are the living reminder of all the good we failed to do.
 C        F
We can't forget
          C
Must not forget
                  G    G7       C
That they are all our children, too.

[Verse]
C            Gaug           C
Like all survivors I once thought
  Em                           Am
When I'm home I won't give a damn
            C        F      G                 C
But now I know I'm caught, I'll never leave Vietnam

[Verse]
 C           Gaug       C            Em                       Am
War isn't over when it ends, some pictures never leave you mind.
                C             F         Dm      D     G      G7
They are the faces of the children the ones we left behind

[Chorus]
                   C
They're called Bui-doi.
              G       G7         C  C7            F        Dm
The dust of life, conceived in hell and born in strife
               C       G         E          E7              Am
They are the living reminders of all the good we failed to do
C         F                C                      G    G7          C
We can't forget, must not forget,  that they are all our children too

[Verse]
 C              Gaug            C              Em              Am
These kids hit walls on ev'ry side, they don't belong in any place.
              C            F        G      G7        C
Their secret  they can't hide it's printed on their face.

[Verse]
   C        Gaug              C
I never thought one day I'd plead
    Em                               Am
For half-breeds from a land that's torn
            C               F              Dm   D          G
But then I saw a camp for children whose crime was being born

[Chorus]
         G6         C                G       G7         C  C7            F      Dm
They're called Bui-Doi, the dust of life conceived in hell and born in strife.
               C           G          E         E7          Am
We owe them fathers and a family a loving home they never knew.
C           Dm7               C                       G   G7        C
Because we know deep in our hearts that they are all our children too.

[Bridge]
 E                   Am     G              C
These are souls in need, they need us to give
  C#m          G#7                     C#
Someone has to pay for their chance to live
A7
Help me try

[Chorus]
         A         D
They're called Bui-Doi.
            A
The dust of life.
    A7       D        D7
Conceived in Hell,
            G        Em
And born in strife.
              D         A7       F#                       Bm
They are the living reminders of all the good we failed to do.

[Finale]
              D
That's why we know
                   F#m
That's why we know
             Bm
Deep in our hearts
            Daug
Deep in our hearts
              D
That's why we know
              A7               G  Gm D
That they are all our children, too.
