[Verse 1]
G Two days past 18 G He was waiting for a bus in his army greens, C Sat down at a booth, at a cafe there G Gave his order to a girl with a bow in her hair G He's a little shy, so she give him a smile, G And he said "Would you mind sitting down for a while, C And talking to me, I'm feeling a little G low?" F C G She said "I'm off in an hour, and I know where we can go." G [Chorus]
Em I cried C I'm never gonna hold the hand of another guy, G "too young, for him!" they told her D Waiting for the love of a travelling soldier, Em Our love will never end, C Waiting for the soldier to come back again, G Never more to be alone, D When the letter says " A soldier is coming G Home" G
[Verse 2]
G
So the letters came from an army camp,
G
In california, then Viet-Nam,
C
And he told her of his heart: He might be in love,
G
And all the things he was so scared of
 
G
He said "When it's getting kinda rough over here,
G
I think of that day sitting down at the peir,
C
And I close my eyes, and see your pretty 
G
Smile,
 
F                               C                   G
Now don't worry, but I won't be able to write for a while.
G
 
[Chorus]
Em I cried C I'm never gonna hold the hand of another guy, G "too young, for him!" they told her D Waiting for the love of a travelling soldier, Em Our love will never end, C Waiting for the soldier to come back again, G Never more to be alone, D When the letter says " A soldier is coming G Home" 12 bar Instrumental break: G, G, G, C, G, G, G, C, G, F - C, G,G [Verse 3]
G One friday night at a football game, G The lord's prayer said, and the anthem sang, C And a man said "Folk's, would you bow your head, G For I list a local, Viet-Nam Dead G Crying all alone, under the stand, G Was a piccolo player in the marching band C And one name read, and nobody really G cared, F C G But a prettly little girl, with a bow in her hair G [Chorus]
Em I cried C I'm never gonna hold the hand of another guy, G "too young, for him!" they told her D Waiting for the love of a travelling soldier, Em Our love will never end, C Waiting for the soldier to come back again, G Never more to be alone, D When the letter says " A soldier is coming..." Em I cried, C Never gonna hold the hand of another guy, G "too young, for him!" they told her D Waiting for the love of a travelling soldier, Em Our love will never end, C Waiting for the soldier to come back again, G Never more to be alone, D When the letter says " A soldier is coming G home" [Outro] (fade)
