Am        Dm6             Em     G
    Army    ...dreamers!      (Mammy's hero!)

   Am         Dm          Em          G
|  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  | (B. F. P. O.)

[Verse 1]
Am              Dm       Em             G
Our little army boy is coming home from B. F. P. O.
Am                   Dm6                Em         G
    I've a bunch of purple flowers to decorate a Mammys hero,
Am                    Dm             Em            G
    Mourning in the aerodrome, the weather warmer, he is colder,
Am                Dm6       Em              G
    Four men in uniform to carry home my little soldier!


[Chorus 1]
  Am                   D                   C
(What could he do?  Should've been a rock star!)

               Em                   Am
But he didn't have the money for a gui - tar
                                  (What could he do?...
      D                      C
...Should've been a poli - tician!)

             Em                 Am
But he never had a proper edu - ca - tion,
                               (What could he do?...

       D                   C
...Should've been a fath - er!)

              Em                   Am       C
But he never even made it to his twenties, what a waste,
  F    Am      F       C               F      Am      F
Army dreamers!    Oo, what a waste of army dreamers!


[Verse 2]
Am              Dm            Em               G
   Tears o'er a tin box, oh, Jesus Christ, he wasn't to know,
Am                Dm6              Em             G
   Like a chicken with a fox, he couldn't win the war with ego,
Am                  Dm
   Give the kid the pick of pips,
     Em                  G
And give him all your stripes and ribbons,
Am                  Dm6
    Now he's sitting in his hole,
    Em                   G
He might as well have buttons and bows!


[Chorus 2]
  Am                   D                   C
(What could he do?  Should've been a rock star!)

               Em                   Am
But he didn't have the money for a gui - tar
                                  (What could he do?...
      D                      C
...Should've been a poli - tician!)

             Em                 Am
But he never had a proper edu - ca - tion,
                               (What could he do?...

       D                   C
...Should've been a fath - er!)

              Em                   Am       C
But he never even made it to his twenties, what a waste,
  F    Am      F       C               F      Am      F
Army dreamers!    Oo, what a waste of army dreamers,
     C                          F     Am
Oo, what a waste of all that, army dreamers,
 F      Am      F      Am      F      Asus2
Army dreamers, army dreamers-------!  Oo-----!
