The Legionnaires Lament

	  		
Dm 
I'm a Legionnaire 
         F 
Camel in disrepair 
            Gm 
Hoping for a Frigidaire 
        Dm      A 
To come passing by 
     Dm 
I am on reprieve 
          F 
Lacking my joie de vivre 
           Gm 
Missing my gay Paris 
         Dm    A 
In this desert dry 
      F 
And I wrote my girl 

Told her I would not return 
              Bb 
I've terribly taken a turn 
        Dm         A 
For the worst now I fear 
            Dm 
It's been a year or more 
                             F 
Since they shipped me to this foreign shore 
             Gm 
Fighting in a foreign war 
       Dm          A 
So far away from my home 
             F 
If only some rain would fall 
      C               Bb 
On the houses and the boulevards 
      Gm 
And the sidewalk bagatelles 
            Bb 
It's like a dream 
         F 
With the roar of cars 
        C              Bb 
And the lolling of the cafe bars 
    Gm                                Bb 
The sweetly sleeping sweeping of the Seine 
       Gm                 Dm      A     Dm 
Lord I don't know if I'll ever be back again 
         F 
La la la la 
         Gm     Dm A 
La la la la 
          Dm 
Medicating in the sun 
              F 
Pinch doses of laudanum 
               Gm 
Longing for the old fecundity 
Dm    A 
Of my homeland 
         Dm 
Curses to this mirage 
           F 
A bottle of ancient Shiraz 
               Gm 
A smattering of distant applause 
          Dm     A 
Is ringing in my poor ears 
       Dm 
On the old left bank 
            F 
My baby in a charabanc 
             Gm 
Riding up the width and length 
       Dm      A 
Of the Champs-Elysee 

            F 
If only some rain would fall 
       C              Bb 
On the houses and the boulevards 
       Gm 
And the sidewalk bagatelles 
            Bb 
It's like a dream 
         F 
With the roar of cars 
        C              Bb 
And the lolling of the cafe bars 
    Gm                                Bb 
The sweetly sleeping sweeping of the Seine 
       Gm                 Dm      A     Dm 
Lord I don't know if I'll ever be back again
