Khe Sanh Ukulele Chords

I [Em]left my heart to the [C]sappers round Khe [G]Sanh [D]
And my [Em]soul was sold with my [C]cigarettes to the [D]black market man
[Em]I’ve had the Vietnam cold [C]turkey from the ocean to the silver [G]city
And it’s [Am]only other [F]vets could under[D]stand [G] [D]

About the [Em]long forgotten [C]dockside guaran[G]tee [C] [G]
[D]How there were [Em]no V-day [C]heroes in [D]1973
How we [Em]sailed into Sydney [C]Harbour [G]saw an old friend but couldn’t [C]kiss her
She was lined and [Am]I was [D]home to the lucky [G]land [C] [G]

[D]And she was [Em]like so many [C]more from that time [G]on
[D]Their [Em]lives were all so [C]empty till they’d [D]found their chosen one
And their [Em]legs were often [C]open but their [G]minds were always [C]closed
And their [Am]hearts were held in [F]fast suburban [D]chains

And the [Em]legal pads were [C]yellow, hours [G]long, paypacket lean
And the [Em]telex writers [C]clattered where the [D]gunships once had been
But the [Em]car parks made me [C]jumpy and I [G]never stopped the [C]dreams
Or the [Am]growing need for [D]speed and novo[G]caine

[D]So I [Em]worked across the [C]country end to [G]end
[D]Tried to [Em]find a place to [C]settle down where my [D]mixed up life could mend
Held a [Em]job on an [C]oil rig flying [G]choppers when [C]I could
But the [Am]nightlife nearly [F]drove me ‘round the [D]bend

And I’ve [Em]travelled ‘round the [C]world from year to [G]year
[D]And [Em]each one’s found me [C]aimless one more [D]year the worse for wear
And I’ve been [Em]back to South East [C]Asia and the [G]answer sure ain’t [C]there
But I’m [Am]drifting north to [D]check things out a[G]gain

[D]You know the [Em]last plane out of [C]Sydney’s almost [G]gone
[D]Only [Em]seven flying [C]hours and I’ll be [D]landing in [G]Hong [D]Kong
There ain’t [Em]nothing like the [C]kisses from a [G]jaded Chinese princess
I’m gonna [Am]hit some Hong Kong [F]mattress all night [D]long

[D]Well the [Em]last plane out of [C]Sydney’s almost [G]gone
You know the [Em]last plane out of [C]Sydney’s almost [D]gone
And It’s [Em]really got me [C]worried I’m going [G]no where and I’m in a [C]hurry
And the [Am]last plane out of [D]Sydney’s almost [G]gone [C] [G]

[D]You know the [Em]last plane out of [C]Sydney’s almost [G]gone
[D]You know the [Em]last plane out of [C]Sydney’s almost [D]gone
And it’s [Em]really got me [C]worried I’m going [G]no where and I’m in a [C]hurry
And the [Am]last plane out of [D]Sydney’s almost [G]gone. [C] [G] [C] [G]
