CHORUS:
   C                 F
Vietnam, Vietnam, Vietnam, Vietnam
 C                 F
Vietnam, Vietnam, Vietnam
                    C                                 F
Yesterday I got a letter from my friend fighting in Vietnam
D7           G              C
And this is what he had to say
                                              F
Tell all my friends that I'll be coming home soon
D7              G               C
My time will be up sometime in June
                                        F
Don't forget he said, to tell my sweet Mary
D7           G                C
Her golden lips as sweet as cherries
And it came from ...CHORUS
                 C                            F
It was just the next day his mother got a telegram
D7         G              C
It was addressed from Vietnam
                                       F
Now, Mistress Brown, she lives in the U.S.A.
D7             G               C
And this is what she wrote and said    
                                             F
"Don't be alarmed" she told me the telegram read
  D7            G                C
"But Mistress Brown, your son is dead"
And it came from ...CHORUS
(F)                        C 
Somebody please stop that war now!  ...SOLO
REPEAT SECOND VERSE
REPEAT CHORUS TWICE
