Tom Russell - Veteran's Day

(Live Version from the album The Long Way Around)


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[Intro]
G

[Verse 1]
                                         D
I used to hang out down at the local VFW hall
                                              G
Lord, I was staring at a photograph up on the wall
                                                                D
Of all the boys in the neighbourhood who died back in World War Two
                                                     G
And the hand lettered sign said, 'Remember our Jimmy McGrew'


[Verse 2]
                                 D
Well, Jimmy went away back in 1965
                                                           G
There's a lot of men here think that Jimmy McGrew's still alive
                                                     D
They carved his name on a stone down in Washington, DC
                                                             G
But his brother says, "That stone don't mean a damn thing to me"


[Chorus]
               C                     G
It's veteran's day and the skies are grey
                    Bm                Em                 Am    D
Leave your uniforms home, boys, there ain't gonna be a parade
          G                                                        C
But we'll fill up a glass for the ones that didn't make it through,   yeah
             G                     D                 C      G
Hey, leave a light in the window tonight for Jimmy McGrew


[Verse 3]
                                                     D
There's a hot rain falling on the back streets of Saigon
                                                             G
And there's a white man running down the alley with his mama-san
                                                            D
But lord, his eyes are cloudy and his arms are black and blue
                                                             G
And he's a-hanging by a thread and he looks like our Jimmy McGrew


[Chorus]
               C                     G
It's veteran's day and the skies are grey
                    Bm                Em                 Am    D
Leave your uniforms home, boys, there ain't gonna be a parade
          G                                                        C
But we'll fill up a glass for the ones that didn't make it through,   yeah
             G                     D                 C
Hey, leave a light in the window tonight for Jimmy McGrew
              G                     D                 G
Yeah, leave a light in the window tonight for Jimmy McGrew
