1. America has heard the bugle call,

             A                                               D  - D7

    and you know it involves us, one an all.

        G                                                D

    I don't suppose that war will ever end,

                A                                               D    - D7

    there's fighting that will break us up again.

 

           G                                        D

Good-bye, my darling, Hello Vietnam,

    G                                      A

a hill to take, a battle to be won.

         G                                                       D

Kiss me goodbye and write me while I'm gone,

          A                                A7           D

good-bye, my sweetheart, Hello Vietnam.

2. A ship is waiting for us at the dock,

          A                                    D             - D7

    America has trouble to be stopped.

             G                                            D

    We must stop Communism in that land,

           A                                                   D          - D7

    or freedom will start slipping thru our hands.

 

(spoken over CHORUS)

 

G                                                                  D

    I hope and pray someday the world will learn,

            G                                                         - A

    that fires we don't put out, will bigger burn.

             G                                                       - D

    We must save freedom now, at any cost,

          A                            A7                    D

    or someday, our own freedom will be lost.

 

             G                                                       D

+  Kiss me goodbye and write me while I'm gone,

              A                                A7           D
