Sam Stone Ukulele Chords

[C] [F]

[F]Sam Stone came home, to his [Bb]wife and family,
after [C]serving in the conflict over[F]seas.
And the [F]time that he served, had [Bb]shattered all his nerves,
and [C]left a little shrapnel in his [F]knee. [Bb] [F]

But the mor[Bb]phine eased the pain,
and the [Bb]grass grew round his brain,
and [G7]gave him all the confidence he [C]lacked;
with a [G7]Purple Heart and a [G]monkey on his [C]back.

There’s a [F]hole in daddy’s arm where all the [Gm]money goes,
and [Bb]Jesus Christ died for nothin’ I sup[C]pose.
Little [F]pitchers have big ears,
don’t [Dm]stop to count the years,
sweet [G7]songs never last too [G]long on broken radi[C]os.
[C]Mmm [C] [C] [C]

Sam [F]Stone’s welcome home, didn’t [Bb]last too long,
he [C]went to work when he’d spent his last [F]dime
And [F]Sammy took to stealing, when he [Bb]got that empty feeling,
for a [C]hundred dollar habit without over[F]time.

And the [Bb]gold rolled through his veins,
like a [Bb]thousand railroad trains,
and [G7]eased his mind in the hours that he [C]chose;
while the [G]kids ran around [G7]wearin’ other peoples’ [C]clothes

There’s a [F]hole in daddy’s arm where all the [Gm]money goes,
and [Bb]Jesus Christ died for nothin’ I sup[C]pose.
Little [F]pitchers have big ears,
don’t [Dm]stop to count the years,
sweet [G7]songs never last too [G]long on broken radi[C]os. [C]Mmm [C] [C] [C]

Sam [F]Stone was alone, when he [Bb]popped his last balloon,
[C]climbing walls while sitting in a [F]chair
Well, he [F]played his last request,
while the [Bb]room smelled just like death,
with an [C]overdose hovering in the [F]air

But [Bb]life had lost its fun, and there was [Bb]nothing to be done,
but [G7]trade his house that he bought on the G, I. [C]Bill;
for a [G]flag draped casket on a [G7]local heroes’ [C]hill

There’s a [F]hole in daddy’s arm where all the [Gm]money goes,
and [Bb]Jesus Christ died for nothin’ I sup[C]pose.
Little [F]pitchers have big ears,
don’t [Dm]stop to count the years,
sweet [G7]songs never last too [G]long on broken radi[C]os.
[C]Mmm [C] [C] [C]
[C]Mmm.[C] [C] [F]
