[Verse 1]
    Dm      G        Dm       G
A butcher, yes, that was my trade,
         F       Bb         F      A
But the King's shilling is now my fee,
    Dm       G      Dm         G
A butcher I may as well have stayed,
           F       G      A     A  Asus2 A
For the slaughter that I see!


[Verse 2]
          Dm       G       Dm     G
And the preacher, in his pulpit,
            F      Bb        F        A
Sermoned, "Go and fight! Do what is right!"
    Dm        G       Dm         G
But he don't have to hear these guns,
          F       G        A      A Asus2 A
And I'll bet he sleeps at night!


[Chorus]
   Am          Dm            Dm/C
And I----, and I can't stop shaking,
    G/B                Bb
My hands won't stop shaking,
   Dm               Dm/C       G/B               Bb
My arms won't stop shaking, my mind won't stop shaking,
   Am         G *     G * G4  G *
I want to go home,
         F        Cm7/Eb  Cm6/Eb  Cm/Eb     D/A
Please, let me go home-----------------, go home!


[Break]

[Verse 3]
   Dm       G       Dm       G
And I have seen a friend of mine...
        F       Bb         F        A
...Hang on the wire, like some rag toy,
      Dm      G         Dm          G
Then, in the heat, the flies come down,
      F   G       A     A  Asus2 A
And cover up the boy!


[Verse 4]
         Dm         G         Dm          G
And the flies come down in Gommecourt, Thiepval,
  F     Bb        F          A
Mametz Wood and French Ver -dun,
         Dm     G        Dm          G
If the preacher he could see those flies,
            F              G       A     A Asus2 A
'Wouldn't preach for the sound of guns!


[Chorus]
   Am          Dm            Dm/C
And I----, and I can't stop shaking,
    G/B                Bb
My hands won't stop shaking,
   Dm               Dm/C       G/B               Bb
My arms won't stop shaking, my mind won't stop shaking,
   Am         G *     G * G4  G *
I want to go home,
         F        Cm7/Eb  Cm6/Eb  Cm/Eb     D/A
Please, let me go home-----------------, go home!
