[Intro] 
G Bm C Em D 

[Verse] 
G Bm C Em D 
G 
Telegram arrived today 
Bm 
well it's time to catch the Monterey 
       C 
coz the man i wed he waits for me 
        Em                    D 
and the daughter that he's yet to see 
US navy beamed its message 
"will deliver brides on a one way passage" 
it made big news across the nation 
the Bridal Train leaves from Perth station 

[Chorus]
C               D 
All the girls around Australia 
G            Em 
married to a Yankee sailor 
C 
the fare is paid across the sea 
      Em                         D 
to the home of the brave and the land of the free 
C                       D 
From west to east the young girls came 
G               Em 
all aboard the Bridal Train 
C 
it was a farewell crossing over land 
                       D      G 
she's gone to meet her sailor man 

[Verse]
No time for sad goodbyes 
she held her mother as she cried 
and then waited there in the Freo rain 
to climb aboard the Bridal Train 
well She was holding her future in her hands 
a faded photo of a man 
catch a sailor if you can 
the war bride leaves her southern land 

[Chorus]
C               D 
All the girls around Australia 
G            Em 
married to a Yankee sailor 
C 
the fare is paid across the sea 
      Em                         D 
to the home of the brave and the land of the free 
C                       D 
From west to east the young girls came 
G               Em 
all aboard the Bridal Train 
C 
it was a farewell crossing over land 
                       D      G 
she's gone to meet her sailor man 

[Bridge]
This is the story of those starry nights 
through desert plains and city lights 
through burning sun and driving rain 
she wept aboard the Bridal Train 

[Chorus]
C               D 
All the girls around Australia 
G            Em 
married to a Yankee sailor 
C 
the fare is paid across the sea 
      Em                         D 
to the home of the brave and the land of the free 
C                       D 
From west to east the young girls came 
G               Em 
all aboard the Bridal Train 
C 
it was a farewell crossing over land 
                       D      G 
she's gone to meet her sailor man

The bridge, I'd say it's similar to the verses but just picking it softly. Something like
G. Bm
This is the story of those starry nights
Bm. Bm
Through desert plains and city lights
C
Through burning sun and driving rain
Em D
She wept aboard the bridal train
