The Vacant Chair Ukulele Chords

[A] [E7] [A]

[A]We shall meet but we shall miss him,
there will [D]be one vacant [A]chair;
[A]we shall linger to caress him,
[A]While we [B7]breathe our evening [E7]prayer
When a [A]year ago we gathered,
joy was [D]in his mild blue [A]eyes,
[A]But a golden chord is severed,
And our hopes in [E7]ruin [A]lie.

[A]We shall [D]meet but we shall [A]miss him,
[A]there will be one vacant [E7]chair,
[E7]We shall [A]linger to ca[D]ress him,
while we [A]breathe our [E7]evening [A]prayer.

[A] [D] [E7] [A]

[A]At our fireside, sad and lonely,
often [D]will the bosom [A]swell
[A]at remembrance of the story,
How our [B7]noble Willie [E7]fell;

How [E7]he [A]strove to bear our banner
through the [D]thickest of the [A]fight,
[A]And uphold our country’s honor,
in the strength of [E7]manhood’s [A]night.

[A]We shall [D]meet but we shall [A]miss him,
there will be one vacant [E7]chair,
[E7]We shall [A]linger to ca[D]ress him,
while we [A]breathe our [E7]evening [A]prayer.

[A]True, they tell us wreaths of glory
ever [D]more will deck his [A]brow,
but this soothes the [A]anguish only,
Sweeping [B7]over our heartstrings [E7]now.

Sleep to[A]day, oh early fallen,
in thy [D]green and narrow [A]bed,
[A]Dirges from the pine and cypress
mingle with the [E7]tears we [A]shed.

[A]We shall [D]meet but we shall [A]miss him,
[A]there will be one vacant [E7]chair,
[E7]We shall [A]linger to ca[D]ress him,
while we [A]breathe [E7]our evening [A]prayer.
