Intro-
C G C G

Verse-
     C                     G
Its January 1970, do you remember me
     F                                      G
You put me on a boat across the sea, in the name of victory
    C                                                 G
But much to my surprised when I arrived, there was no welcoming committee
  F                                                G
Instead there was a man for me to kill, and now I see all this too real

Refrain-
C                        G     
Then I saw him standing with a bayonet
C                           G
and as I ran towards him he hardly broke a sweat
 C                        G
When I took his life he fell to his knees
 C                        G
And as his eyes began to fade he whispered softly

Chorus-
C                      G
Godspeed this letter, away from here
     F                           G
I've sealed it with my tears, and stamped it with my fists
    C                      G 
And godspeed this letter, away from you
    F
My work down here is through
G
I'm on my way to better days
     C         G   C   G    
And so are you

Do Verse-
C                                                                G
I'm in his pocket that I saw the picture of his children and his family
    F                                             G
And I began to realize this person I despised, in actuality
     C                      
Was not much different from myself
 C                                       G
we porbably could have taught each other many things
    F                              F           
And now I know its much too late although I couldn't hesistate
 G
I checked his gun, and his chamber was empty

Do Refrain-
Then I saw him standing with a bayonet
and as I ran towards him he hardly broke a sweat
When I took his life he fell to his knees
And as his eyes began to fade he whispered softly

Chorus-
C                     G
Godspeed this letter, away from here
     F                           G
I've sealed it with my tears, and stamped it with my fists
    C                     G 
And godspeed this letter, away from you
F
My work down here is through
G
I'm on my way to better days      
And so are you

Bridge-
Bb F
o-ho
                      C      G                
We know not what we've done
    Bb F
And o-ho
                      C      G 
We know not what we've done

Chorus-
C                     G
Godspeed this letter, away from here
     F                           G
I've sealed it with my tears, and stamped it with my fists
    C                     G 
And godspeed this letter, away from you
F
My work down here is through
G
I'm on my way to better days
    C      
And so are you

great tab! thank you so much!

just one thing i noticed should be changed. it isn't that important since the tab is what is important but "and stamped it with my fists" should be "and stamped it with my fears" (I have checked with the lyric book that came with the CD)
