"Yankee Bayonet (I Will Be Home Then)"
Song by the Decemberists,
from The Crane Wife (major label sellout album)
***
This is a loose interpretation of the song because
I can't be bothered to do a good enough job to get sued over
Use your best judgment and make it your own

       Cadd9            Am

C                        Am
Heart-carved tree trunk, Yankee bayonet
C                   Am
A sweetheart left behind
C                         Am
Far from the hills of the sea-swelled Carolinas
C               Am
That's where my true love lies

There is this bit (if you can manage it) during the verse, but NOT during the "hup hup" part

C Am C Am
(hup hup hup...)

C                    Am
Look for me when the sun-bright swallow
C              Am
Sings upon the birch bough high
C                                  Am
But you are in the ground with the voles and the weevils
C                             Am
All a'chew upon your bones so dry

Chorus:
A (Major!)   C
But when the sun breaks
A          C        G
To no more bulletin battle-cry
A             C
Then will you make a grave
A             F
For I will be home then
          G
I will be home then
          F
I will be home then
          G
I will be home then
Then

**Intro**

When I was a girl how the hills of Oconee
Made a seam to hem me in
There at the fair when our eyes caught, careless
Got my heart right pierced by a pin

But oh, did you see all the dead of Manassas
All the bellies and the bones and the bile
Though I lingered here with the blankets barren
And my own belly big with child

Chorus:
But when the sun breaks
To no more bulletin battle-cry
Then will you make a grave
For I will be home then
I will be home then
I will be home then
I will be home then

*The chords are the same here but the timing changes*
F                               G
Stems and bones and stone walls too
Could keep me from you
F                     E
Scaly skin is all too few
G
To keep me from you

**Intro**

But oh my love, though our bodies may be parted
Though our skin may not touch skin
Look for me with the sun-bright sparrow
I will come on the breath of the wind

end on Am
