Pete(r) Doherty-
1939 Returning-
Grace/Westlands


Verse:

Bm              C#7
Captured clandestine
F#m               C#m
Crawled into the lights
D         A              G                  
He knew he was in for a shoeing
Em                  F# 
Just wasn't to be his night

Bm                      C#7
Dragged out of the frozen Rhine
F#m                            C#m
For the Motherland and the Third Reich
D         A                G          
A toeing's as good as a shoeing
Em                  F#
When it's not to be your night

Chorus:

Bm
Tread carefully, so carefully
A#
Upon the drifting ice
D#maj7
Caught behind enemy lines
F    F#
In 1939

Bm          A#
For Germany he sacrificed his life
D#maj7                    
Caught behind enemy lines                 
F      F#
There in 1939

Verse:

Bm                   C#7
Kids knee-deep in rubble
F#m                     C#m
London urchins grey with dust
D        A                 G
Packed off ours in evacuations
Em              
To farmers' wives

Green and pleasant lives
F#m
Far from the doodlebugs
Bm                          C#7
Nanna Doll she still remembers
F#m                    C#m
Leaving town in worn-out shoes
D              A                   G
Now she's back out west in sheltered accommodations
Em                           F#m   
Homes for the old where pills aren't the only blues

Chorus:

Bm
Tread carefully, so carefully
A#m
Upon the drifting ice
D#maj7
Staring blank into the TV guide
F     F#
In 2009

Bm                   A#
How it's hurting me, I've only seen her twice
D#maj7
Since you went west for the second time
F        F#
Since 1939
