chords and words


INTRO:

Ab Eb/G Fm Eb C# Ab/C Bbm Eb


verse 1:

Fm                     C#                 Ab Absus4 Ab Eb/G
I left my heart to the sappers round Khe Sanh
       Fm                      C#               Eb  Fm/Eb  Eb
And i sold my soul with my cigaretts to the black market man
Edim         Fm              C#        
I've had the Vietnam cold turkey 
          Ab                   C#
          Bbm        F#              Eb    Fm  Eb/G  Eb
And it's only other Vets could understand 

verse 2

             Fm             C#            Ab  Absus4  Ab  Eb/G
About the long forgotten dockside guarentees 
               Fm    Eb  C#           Eb/G   Fm     Eb
How there were no V-day heroes in nineteen seventy three 
         Fm                  C#
How we sailed into Sydney Harbour
         Ab                        C#
 saw an old friend but I couldn't kiss her
             Bbm          Eb                 Ab  C#  Ab Eb/G 
She was lined, and I was home to the lucky land 
 

verse 3:

              Fm          C#                 Ab  Absus4  Ab  Eb/G
And she was like so many more from that time on
        Fm           Eb  C#                 Eb         Fm/Bb  Eb  Edim
Their lives were all so empty, till they'd found their chosen one
            Fm              C#
And their legs were often open
           Ab                 C#
but their minds were always closed
            Bbm                F#              Eb  Fm/Bb  Eb Edim 
And their hearts were held in fast suburban chains


verse 4:

         Fm               C#           Ab       Absus4  Ab   Eb/G
And the legal pads were yellow, hours long, paypackets lean
         Fm               C#                Eb    Fm/Bb     Eb   Edim
And the telex writers clattered were the gunships once had been 
         Fm                C#
But the car parks made me jumpy
        Ab                 C#
And it never stopped the dreams
         Bbm              Eb           Ab     C#  Ab
or the growing need for speed and novacaine

verse 5:

      Fm                 C#     Ab Absus4 Ab Eb/G
So I worked across the country end to end
          Fm              C#                    Eb        Fm/Bb     Eb  Edim
Tried to find a place to settle down, where my mixed up life could mend
       Fm           C#
Held a job on an oil-rig
          Ab             C#
flying choppers when I could
           Bbm             F#                Eb   Fm/Eb  Eb Edim
But the nightlife nearly drove me round the bend 

verse 6:

           Fm                  C#                Ab  Absus4  Ab  Eb/G
And I've travelled round the world from year to year
     Fm                   C#               Eb      Fm/Bb     Eb
And each one's found me aimless, one more year the worse for wear
      Edim     Fm                 C#
And i've been back to South East Asia
         Ab                C#
but the answer sure aint there
          Bbm              Eb                 Ab C# Ab
But I'm drifting North to check things ouit again



this fills the next bit:

Fm C# Ab Absus4 Ab Eb/G
Fm C# Eb Fm/Bb Eb Edim
Fm C# Ab C# Bbm Eb Ab C# Ab Eb/G


verse 7:

              Fm                C#              Ab  Absus4  Ab Eb/G
You know the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
      Fm           C#                 Eb      Fm/Bb   Eb
Only seven flying hours and i'll  be landing in Hong Kong
   Edim      Fm              C#          
There aint nothin like the kisses
        Ab             C#
           Bbm                F#                 Eb Fm/Eb Eb Edim
I'm gonna hit some Hong Kong matress all night long

verse 8:

               Fm                C#              Ab   Absus4  Ab Eb/G 
Well know the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
                   Fm            C#             Eb  Fm/Bb  Eb
You know the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
 Edim      Fm            C#
and it's really got me worried 
          Ab                    C#
I'm goin nowhere and I'm in a hurry
          Bbm              Eb              Ab  Eb/G
And the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone  

 Fm                C#              Ab   Absus4  Ab Eb/G 
Well know the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
                   Fm            C#             Eb  Fm/Bb  Eb
You know the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
 Edim      Fm            C#
and it's really got me worried 
          Ab                    C#
I'm goin nowhere and I'm in a hurry
          Bbm              Eb              Ab  C# Ab C# Ab
And the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone  


This also sounds great just on piano, top song.
