E               A             D              A
He joined up to get a job and show he wasn't scared
E                         A
Swapped boy scout hat for army cap
   D               A
He thought he'd be prepared
F#m           B          A                E
At the age of seventeen, he was forced to choose
F#m           B           A       B                      E
At the age of twenty-one, he's in Catch-22, all right!

E                A                    D               A    
He joined up for just three years, it seemed a small amount
E               A  
But they didn't tell him that
    D                A
The first two didn't count
F#m           B         A             E
At the age of seventeen how was he to know
F#m                B               A                 B
That at the age of twenty-one he'd still have one to go?
E
Tin soldier
A
He signed away his name
D
Tin soldier
E
No chance for cash or fame
E
Tin soldier
A
Now he knows the truth
D
Tin soldier
E                           E
He signed away his youth

E                   A                D               A
He joined up 'cause Dad knew best to do right by his son
E                    A           
And now he hates and counts the dates
     D                   E
That mark time on square one
F#m           B            A             E
At the age of seventeen he did as he was told
F#m               B              A                   B
Now at the age of twenty-one tin still won't turn to gold

E
Tin soldier
A
He signed away his name
D
Tin soldier
E
No chance for cash or fame
E
Tin soldier
A
Now he knows the truth
D
Tin soldier
E                              E
He signed away his youth

[instrumental]

E
If at the age of seventeen you fall in line too soon
E
Then at the age of twenty-one you'll still march to their tune
E
Hup, two, three, four
E 
Hup, two, three, four
E
Hup, two, three, four

Bm C#m D E x3

E             A
Tin soldiers, you signed away your name
D             E
Tin soldiers, no chance for cash or fame
E             A             
Tin soldiers, now you know the truth
D             E
Tin soldiers, you sign away your youth
E             A
Tin soldiers, you go and join the queue
D             E            
Tin soldiers, do what they want you to
E             A
Tin soldiers, they take away your name
D             E
Tin soldiers, they treat you all the same
 
E D E

E     D        E
Sign away your life
E     D        E  
Sign away your life
