Bm Em F♯mBmOur little army Emboy Is F♯mcoming home from Ab.f.p.o. BmIve a bunch of purple Emflowers To F♯mdecorate a Amammys hero. BmMourning in the aeroEmdrome, The F♯mweather warmer, Ahe is colder. BmFour men in uniEmform To F♯mcarry home my Alittle soldier. BmWhat could he do? EShould have been a rock Dstar. But he didnt F♯mhave the money for a Bmguitar BmWhat could he do? EShould have been a poliDtician. But he never F♯mhad a proper eduBmcation. BmWhat could he do? EShould have been a faDther. But he never F♯meven made it to his Bmtwenties. What a Dwaste -- GArmy Bmdreamers. GOoh, what a waste ofD6add9 GArmy dreBmamers. G -> (chords as first verse) <- Tears oer a tin box. Oh, jesus christ, he wasnt to know, Like a chicken with a fox, He couldnt win the war with ego. Give the kid the pick of pips, And give him all your stripes and ribbons. Now hes sitting in his hole, He might as well have buttons and bows. -> Chorus (as first) (ends on -224422-) <- Of course, if you want it to sound like the real thing, you will have to handpick the but it is not too hard to figure out. Also, the part after the second chorus is the same as verse, and when she repeats "Army at the end of the second chorus, repeat G and Bm, and end on 224422. The song goes on after the second chorus, but the chords are the same as in the verses. Please leave constructive criticism, I am open to any modifications. Thanks to hywelt for corrections.
