                    Am               E
Far away across the ocean
            Am               E
Far beyond the sea's eastern rim
       Am
Lives a man who is father of the Indo-Chinese people
        F           Am
And his name it is Ho Chi Minh
    C          Am        C          Am
Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minh, Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minh

           Am                E
From Viet Bac to the SaiGon Delta
           Am                  E
From the mountains and plains below
          Am
Young and old workers, peasants and the toiling tenant farmers
           F                Am
Fight for freedom with Uncle Ho
    C          Am        C          Am
Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minh, Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minh

           Am                  E
Now Ho Chi Minh was a deep sea sailor
               Am                    E
He served his time out on the seven seas
         Am
Work and hardship were part of his early education
       F          Am
Exploitation his ABC
    C          Am        C          Am
Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minh, Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minh

            Am                    E
Now Ho Chi Minh came home from sailing
        Am                        E
And he looked out on his native land
        Am
Saw the want and the hunger of the Indo-Chinese people
        F                    Am
Foreign soldiers on every hand
    C          Am        C          Am
Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minh, Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minh

            Am                E
Now Ho Chi Minh went to the mountains
        Am                    E
And he trained a determined band
       Am
Heroes all, sworn to liberate the Indo-Chinese people
        F                Am
Drive invaders from the land
    C          Am        C          Am
Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minh, Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minh

        Am                E
Fourteen men became a hundred
            Am                E
A hundred thousand and Ho Chi Minh
           Am
Forged and tempered the army of the Indo-Chinese people
            F            Am
Freedom's Army of Viet Minh
    C          Am        C          Am
Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minh, Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minh

        Am            E
Every soldier is a farmer
            Am                        E
Comes the evening and he grabs his hoe
          Am
Comes the morning he swings his rifle on his shoulder
        F                Am
It's the army of Uncle Ho.
    C          Am        C          Am
Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minh, Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minh

            Am                E
From the mountains and the jungles
            Am                        E
From the ricelands and the Plain of Reeds
          Am
March the men and the women of the Indo-Chinese Army
        F                        Am
Planting freedom with vict'ry seeds.
    C          Am        C          Am
Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minh, Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minh

            Am                E
From Viet Bac to the SaiGon Delta
            Am                E
Marched the armies of Viet Minh
        Am
And the wind stirs the banners of the Indo-Chinese people
            F                Am
Peace and freedom and Ho Chi Minh.
    C          Am        C          Am
Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minh, Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minh
