Verse:
A                 E D
Soldier is turning
A                      E  D
See him through white light
A                   E D
Running from strangers
A                   E D
See you in the valley

A          E D
War upon war
A           E D
Heat upon heat
   A                D
To cut a long story short
  E       A
I lost my mind

Sitting on a park bench
Years away from fighting
To cut a long story short
I lost my mind

 E(hold)
Standing in the dark
         F(hold)
Oh I was waiting for man to come
     G(hold)
I am beautiful and clean
                 C(hold)
And so very very young
                      E(hold)
To be standing in the street
               F(hold)
To be taken by someone

[Bass solo]

Standing in the dark
Oh I was waiting for man to come
I am beautiful and clean
And so very very young
To be standing in the street
To be taken by someone

A                 E D
Questions questions
A                 E D
Give me no answers
A                         E D
Thats all they ever give me
A                 E D
Questions questions
   A                      E D
Oh look at the strange boy
   A                     E D
He finds it hard existing
   A                 E
To cut a long story short
  D
I lost my mind
   A                 E
To cut a long story short
  D
I lost my...
