A PITTANCE OF TIME by Terry Kelly
(arranged in paste-to-word friendly format)
Capo 2nd Fret

Intro:  [G] [C] [F] [G]     [Am] [F] [C]  [G]

[G] They [C] fought and some [Am] died for their [F] home [G] land 
They [C] fought and some [Am] died now it’s [F] our [G] land 
Look at [F] his little [Am] child, there’s no [F] fear in her [C] eyes 
Could he [Am] not show [C] respect for [F] other dads who have [G] died

Take two [C] minutes, would you [Am] mind? It’s a [F] pittance of [G] time 
For the [C] boys and the [Am] girls who [F] went [G] over 
In [C] peace may they [Am] rest, may we [F] never for[G]get…
Why they [Am] died… [F] It’s a pittance of [G] time 

[G] God for[C] give me for [Am] wanting to [F] strike [G] him 
Give me [C] strength so as [Am] not to be [F] like [G] him 
My heart [F] pounds in my [C] breast, fingers [F] pressed to my [Am] lips 
My throat [C] wants to bawl [Am] out, my tongue [F] barely [G] resists 

But two [C] minutes I will [Am] bide, it’s a [F] pittance of [G] time 
For the [C] boys and the [Am] girls who [F] went [G] over 
In [C] peace may they [Am] rest, may we [F] never for[G]get
why they [C] died... [F] it’s a pittance of [G] time

[G] [C] [F] [G]     [Am] [F] [C]  [G]

Read the [C] letters and [Am] poems of the [F] heroes at [G] home 
They have [C] casualties, [Am] battles, and [F] fears of their [G] own 
There’s a [F] price to be [C] paid if you [Am] go, if you [G] stay 
Freedom’s [Am] fought for and [C] won in [F] numerous [G] ways 

Take two [C] minutes, would you [Am] mind? It’s a [F] pittance of [G] time
For the [C] boys and the [Am] girls all [F] over [G] 
May we [C] never [Am] forget our [F] young become [G] vets 
At the [Am] end of the [C] line… [F] it’s a pittance of [G] time

It takes [C] courage to [Am] fight in your [F] own [G] war 
It takes [C] courage to [Am] fight someone [F] else’s [G] war 
Our [F] peacekeepers [Am] tell of their [F] own living [Am] hell 
They bring [C] hope to foreign [Am] lands that the hate [F] mongers can’t [G] kill

Take two [C] minutes, would you [Am] mind? It’s a [F] pittance of [G] time
For the [C] boys and the [Am] girls who go [F] over [G]
In [F] peace time our [C] best still [F] don battle [Am] dress
And lay their [C] lives on the [Am] line... [F] it’s a pittance of [G] time

In [C] peace may they [Am] rest
[G]lest we for[Am]get why they [C] died
[F] Take a pittance of [G] time

Great song, and a great job done in tabbing it. I hope more people actually find this song.. Five stars.

Lest We Forget.
