Title: Lyndon Johnson told the nation

Capo on the 7th Fret
A chord diagramA minorAm
I got a letter from L.B.J
   A chord diagramDmDm
It said, "This is your lucky day"
     A chord diagramA minorAm                A chord diagramE7E7            A chord diagramA minorAm    A chord diagramE7E7
It's time to put your khaki trousers on
A chord diagramA minorAm
Though it may seem very queer
      A chord diagramDmDm
We've got no jobs to give you here
   A chord diagramA minorAm             A chord diagramE7E7          A chord diagramA minorAm
So we are sending you to Vietnam

     A chord diagramFF              A chord diagramC majorC
And Lyndon Johnson told the nation
 A chord diagramDmDm               A chord diagramA minorAm
Have no fear of escalation
             A chord diagramE7E7           A chord diagramA minorAm
I am trying everyone to please
A chord diagramFF                A chord diagramC majorC
Though it isn't really war
 A chord diagramDmDm                 A chord diagramA minorAm
We're sending fifty thousand more
              A chord diagramE7E7                 A chord diagramA minorAm    A chord diagramE7E7
To help save Vietnam from Vietnamese


I jumped off the old troop ship
And sank in mud up to my hips
I cussed until the captain called me down
Never mind how hard it's raining
Think of all the ground we're gaining
Just don't take one step outside of town

And Lyndon Johnson told the nation
Have no fear of escalation
I am trying everyone to please
Though it isn't really war
We're sending sixty thousand more
To help save Vietnam from Vietnamese

Every night the local gentry
Slip out past the sleeping sentry
They go to join the old V.C.
In their nightly little dramas
They put on their black pajamas
And come lobbing mortar shells at me

And Lyndon Johnson told the nation
Have no fear of escalation
I am trying everyone to please
Though it isn't really war
We're sending seventy thousand more
To help save Vietnam from Vietnamese

We go round in helicopters
Like a bunch of big grasshoppers
Searching for the Viet Cong in vain
They left a note that they had gone
They had to get down to Saigon
Their government positions to maintain

Well, here I sit in this rice paddy
Wondering about Big Daddy
And I know that Lyndon loves me so
Yet how sadly I remember
Way back yonder in November
When he said I'd never have to go

And Lyndon Johnson told the nation
Have no fear of escalation
I am trying everyone to please
Though it isn't really war
We're sending a hundred thousand more

Almost there ...
