Capo 5th Fret 
Chords respective to capo (so play a Bm but the note is Em)

  Bm                   G                     D            A
I left my heart to the sappers round Khe Sanh
       Bm                    G                A                  F#
And my soul was sold with my cigarettes to the blackmarket man
             Bm           G
I've had the Vietnam cold turkey
         D                    G
         Em         C               A
And it's only other vets could understand

          Bm             G              D              
About the long forgotten dockside guarantees
A              Bm       G         A
How there were no V-day heroes in 1973
F#       Bm                G
How we sailed into Sydney Harbour
       D                         G
Saw an old friend but I couldn't kiss her
        Em               A                    D    G    D    A
She was lined, and I was home to the lucky land

            Bm           G                   D         A
And she was like so many more from that time on
      Bm                G                A                       
Their lives were all so empty, till they found their chosen one
F#        Bm               G
And their legs were often open
          D                  G
But their minds were always closed
          Em                  C             A
And their hearts were held in fast suburban chains

        Bm              G             D                       A
And the legal pads were yellow, hours long, pay-packet lean
        Bm              G                  A                      F#
And the telex writers clattered where the gunships once had been
Bm                G
Car parks make me jumpy
      D                 G
And I never stopped the dreams
       Em                A                  D    G    D    A
Or the growing need for speed and novocaine

     Bm                G                   D
So I worked across the country from end to end
A         Bm              G                     A
Tried to find a place to settle down, where my mixed up life could mend
F#     Bm        G
Held a job on an oil-rig
       D               G
Flying choppers when I could
        Em                C                 A
But the nightlife nearly drove me round the bend

         Bm                  G                  D        A
And I've travelled round the world from year to year
    Bm                 G                A
And each one found me aimless, one more year the worst for wear
    F#        Bm                 G
And I've been back to South East Asia
        D                 G
And the answer sure ain't there
         Em                 A                  D    G    D    A
But I'm driftin' north, to check things out again
