Woman In A War

	  		
Bm 
I was working up in Kabul In the last years of the war 
A                                                       Bm 
Khasi had decide he didn?t love us any more 
Bm 
The town was full of checkpoints and Security companies 
A                                                       Bm 
And everyone with money had an exit strategy 

Bm                                       
She came in in December to work the state 
A                                                               Bm       
She was on a second posting across form Kuwait 
Bm 
I met her at a briefing down at I SEF H Q 
A                                                               Bm 
Some Colonel was pretending that he knew what to do 

Bm 
There?s nothing quite as sexy as a woman in a war 
A                                                  Bm 
A delicate reminder of what we?re fighting for 
Bm 
She said the word ?kenetic? like she?d seen it for real 
A                                                               Bm 
She was her daddies daughter with her daddies ideals 

But she said: 

Em                              Bm 
? Pay no heed to what they say  
A                       Bm       
Notice only what they do?...? 

Bm 
There?s nothing quite as horny as a woman in a war 
A                                                               Bm 
The sugared instant coffee the adrenalin and more 
Bm                                               
There?s nothing like the hunger for some softness in the night 
A                                                               Bm 
When you wake up every morning with a war to fight 

Still she?d say: Refrain 

Bm 
A couple of months later in a dutton covered bar 
A                                                               Bm 
We?d been on a trip together with the General in Mazah 
Bm 
We got talking about the problems of the ANSF 
A                                               Bm 
It was getting late and the others all had left 

Bm 
I came a little closer two of us were left 
A                                                               Bm 
We could die tomorrow tonight ..I need you for my bed 
Bm 
Back in my hooch I got a bottle of Jack 
A                                                               Bm 
My dick was claiming victory like Bush in Iraq 

And she said: 

Bm 
?I?ve enjoyed our conversation and your offer is bold 
A                                                               Bm 
Your loquacious admiration of the problems you can?t solve 
Bm 
But these are not your problems this is not your war 
A                                                               Bm 
You only really come here because you were bored 

Bm 
?So go back to your family and your ordinary lives 
A                                               Bm 
Your ordinary children and your ordinary wife 
Bm 
I?m not your mother your virgin or whore 
A                                       Bm 
Simply a survivor of a woman in a war? 

Bm, Em, A, Bm, Bm, Em, E7 

Bm 
I was workin up in Kabul in the last year of the war
