    Dm      G        Dm       G              F      Bb         F      A
A butcher, yes, that was my trade, but the King's shilling is now my fee,
    Dm       G      Dm         G                F       G      A     A Asus2 A
A butcher I may as well have stayed, for the slaughter that I see,
          Dm      G       Dm      G              F       Bb        F        A
And the preacher, in his pulpit,      sermoned, "Go and fight! Do what is right!"
    Dm        G       Dm         G             F        G         A    Asus2 A
But he don't have to hear these guns, and I'll bet he sleeps at night!


   Am             Dm             Dm/C       G/B                Bb
And I--------, and I can't stop shaking, my hands won't stop shaking,
   Dm               Dm/C       G/B               Bb
My arms won't stop shaking, my mind won't stop shaking,
   Am         G(type2)  G4  G(type2)
I want to go home,
         F        Cm7/Eb  Cm6/Eb  Cm/Eb     D/A
Please, let me go home-----------------, go home!

    Dm       G      Dm       G        F       Bb         F        A
And I have seen a friend of mine hang on the wire, like some rag toy,
      Dm      G         Dm          G        F    G       A     A Asus2 A
Then, in the heat, the flies come down, and cover up the boy,
         Dm         G        Dm          G         F     Bb        F         A
And the flies come down in Gommecourt, Thiepval, Mametz Wood and French Ver-dun,
         Dm     G        Dm          G               F              G        A   Asus2 A
If the preacher he could see those flies, wouldn't preach for the sound of guns!


   Am             Dm             Dm/C       G/B                Bb
And I--------, and I can't stop shaking, my hands won't stop shaking,
   Dm               Dm/C       G/B               Bb
My arms won't stop shaking, my mind won't stop shaking,
   Am         G(type2)  G4  G(type2)
I want to go home,
         F        Cm7/Eb  Cm6/Eb  Cm/Eb     D/A
Please, let me go home-----------------, go home!
