Travelin' Soldier

Bruce Robison / Dixie Chicks: Home (2002)

G
Two days past eighteen he was waiting for the bus in his army greens.
C G
Sat down at a booth in a cafe there, gave his order to a girl with a bow in her hair.
G
He's a little shy so she gives him a smile and he said "Would you mind
C G
Sittin' down for a while and talking to me, I'm feeling a little low?"
F C G
She said "I'm off in an hour and I know where we can go."
 
G
So they went down and they sat on the pier he said
C G
"I bet you got a boyfriend but I don't care I've got no one to send a letter to.
Am C G
Would you mind if I sent one back here to you?"
Am C G
I cried - Never gonna hold the hand of another guy! "Too young for him" they told her -
D Am
Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier: Our love will never end!
C G
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again: Never more to be alone,
D G
When the letters said, a soldiers coming home.
 
G
So the letters came from an army camp, in California, then Vietnam.
C G
And he told her of his heart, might be lovin' all of this he was so scared of.
G
He said when things were getting kinda rough over here, I think of that day
C G
Sittin' down at the pier and I close my eyes and see your pretty smile
F C G
Don't worry, but I won't be able to write for a while.
I cried - Never gonna hold the hand of another guy! "Too young for him" they told her - 
Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier: Our love will never end! 
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again: Never more to be alone, 
When the letters said, a soldiers coming home. 
 
G
It was friday night at a football game, the Lord's prayer said and the anthem sang.
C G
A man said: "Folks, would you bow your head for a list of local Vietnam dead?"
G
Cryin' all alone under the stands was a piccolo player in the marching band
C G F C G
And one name read and nobody really cared - But a pretty little girl with a bow in her hair.
I cried - Never gonna hold the hand of another guy! "Too young for him" they told her - 
Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier: Our love will never end! 
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again: Never more to be alone, 
When the letters said, a soldiers coming home.
