CAPO: 4th FRET/KEY: F#/PLAY: D

INTRO:
[D] Kiss [G] me goodbye and write me while I’m gone
Good-[A7] bye, my sweetheart, Hello Viet-[D] nam.

[A7] America has heard the bugle [D] call
And you [A7] know it involves us, one an [D] all
I [G] don’t suppose that war will ever [D] end
There’s [A7] fighting that will break us up a-[D] gain.

CHORUS
Good-[G] bye, my darling, Hello Viet-[D] nam
A [G] hill to take, a battle to be [A7] won
Kiss [G] me goodbye and write me while I’m [D] gone
Good-[A7] bye, my sweetheart, Hello Viet-[D] nam.

A ship is waiting for us at the dock
America has trouble to be stopped
We must stop Communism in that land
Or freedom will start sliping thru our hands.

NARRATION: (Chorus sung in background)
I hope and pray someday the world will learn
That fires we don’t put out, will bigger burn
We must save freedom now, at any cost
Or someday, our own freedom will be lost.

TAG:
[D] Kiss [G] me goodbye and write me while I’m [D] gone
Good-[A7] bye, my sweetheart, Hello Viet-[D] nam.
