Em C G I left my heart to the sappers round Khe Sahn, Em C D And my soul was sold with my cigarettes to the black-market man. Em C G C I've had the Vietnam cold turkey from the ocean to the Silver City. Am F D And it's only other vets could understand. Em C G 'Bout the long forgotten dockside guarantees Em C D How there were no V - day heroes in nineteen seventy three Em C G C How we sailed into Sydney Harbour, Saw an old friend but I couldn't kiss her. Am D G C G D She was lined up and I was home to the lucky land. She was like so many more from that time on, Their lives were all so empty, 'til they'd found their chosen one, And their legs were often open, but their minds were always closed, And their hearts were held in fast suburban chains And the legal pads were yellow, Hours long, pay packets lean, And the telex writers clattered Where the gun ships once had been, But the car parks made me jumpy, and I never stopped the dreams, Or the growing need for speed and novocaine. So I worked across the country from end to end, Tried to find a place to settle down, Where my mixed up life could mend, Held a job on an oil - rig, Flying choppers when I could, But the night life nearly drove me 'round the bend. And I've traveled 'round the world from year to year, And each one found me aimless, One more year the worse for wear, And I've been back to South East Asia, And the answer sure ain't there, But I'm drifting north, To check things out again. SOLO SAME AS VERSE 2 Well the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone And only seven flying hours, and I'll be landing in Hong Kong, There ain't nothing like kisses from a jaded Chinese princess, I'm gonna hit some Hong Kong mattress all night long Well the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone. Well the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone. And it's really got me worried, I'm going nowhere and I'm in a hurry, You know the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone. Well the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone, You know the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone, And it's really got me worried I'm going nowhere and I'm in a hurry, You know the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone Solo (for guitar....Not exact but it fits)
