LyriXML: I Fought In A War (Belle And Sebastian )

I fought in a war and I left my friends behind meEm Am
To go looking for the enemy, and it wasn't very longC B
Before I would stand with another boy in front of meEm Am
And a corpse that just fell into me, with the bullets flying roundC B

And I reminded myself of the words you said when we were getting onG Am
And I bet you're making shells back home for a steady boy to wearC B
Round his neck, well it won't hurt to think of you as if you're waiting forG Am
This letter to arrive because I'll be here quite a whileC B

I fought in a war and I left my friends behind meEm A
To go looking for the enemy, and it wasn't very longC B
Before I found out that the sickness there ahead of meEm A
Went beyond the bedsit infamy of the decade gone beforeC B D

And I reminded myself of the words you said when we were getting onG Am
And I bet you're making shells back home for a steady man to wearC B
Round his neck, well it won't hurt to think of you as if you're waiting forG Am
This letter to arrive because I'll be here quite a whileC B

I fought in a war, and I didn't know where it would endEm A
It stretched before me infinitely, I couldn't really thinkC B
Of the day beyond now, keep your head down palEm A
There's trouble plenty in this hour, this dayC
I can see hope I can see lightB

And I reminded myself of the looks you gave when we were getting onG Am
And I bet you're making shells back home for a steady man to wearC B
Round his neck, well it won't hurt to think of you as if you're waiting forG Am
This letter to arrive because I'll be here quite a whileC B D
