        This is called the "fixing to die rag"

        It is actually in Nevada, but they has different chords to the way I play
it.     Heres what I do

        Well Come on all you big strong men

        Uncle sam needs your help again

        Hes got hiself in a fuck of a jam

        G                             G7
        Way down yonder in South Vietnam

        C        Cmin            G
        So put down your books and pick up your guns

        E                 A7            D7
        cause were gonna have a whole lot of fun

        D7      A7    D7
        And its one two three

        G                          D7
        what are we fighting for, dont ask me I dont give a damn

        next stop is vietnam

        D7            A7    D7    G                    G7
        and its five six seven  open up the pearly gates

        C       Cmin    G       E
        well there aint no time to wonder why

        A7      D7              G
        whoppie were all going to die

        Well thats it roughly. I think I have the chords in the right places, but
I dont have my guitar with me so I not entirely sure. You should find that it
comes together mostly. The C Cmin G bit is best played at the third fret as a
barre. I always play this fairly fast, and loud. Its actually quite a party
piece. There is after all nothing quite like at 20 year old Vietnam protest song
to prove what an irrelevant washed out old hippie that you really are
