CAPO 1
Tabbed By: Emrldeyzs


INTRO: G Em  C  Em D

VERSE:

G                         
A Telegram arrived today
Em
Well it's time to catch the Monteray
C
'Cause the Man I wed he wait's for me
Em                       D
And a Daughter that he's yet to see

G
US Navy beamed it's message
Em
Will deliver brides on a one way passage
C
It made big news across the nation
Em                      D
The bridal train leaves from Perth Station


CHORUS:

C               D
All the girls around Australia
G       G/F# Em        D 
Married to a Yankee Sailor
C
The fare is paid across the sea
       Em                        D            
To the home of the brave and the land of the free
C                     D
From west to east the young girls came
G   G/F#       Em      D
All aboard the bridal train
          C
It was a farewell crossing over land
      Em                  D   G
She's gone to meet her sailor man

VERSE:

G
No time for sad goodbyes,
Em
Well she held her mother as she cried
C
And then waited there in the Freo Rain,
Em                    D
To climb aboard the bridal train

G
Well she was holding her future in her hand
         Em
Yeah the faded photo of her man
C
Catch a sailor if you can
Em                      D
The war bride leaves a southern land

CHORUS:

C               D
All the girls around Australia
G       G/F# Em        D 
Married to a Yankee Sailor
C
The fare is paid across the sea
       Em                        D            
To the home of the brave and the land of the free
C                     D
From west to east the young girls came
G   G/F#       Em      D
All aboard the bridal train
          C
It was a farewell crossing over land
      C                   D   G
She's gone to meet her sailor man

BREAK: G Em C Em D 2x

VERSE:

G (one strum)
Now this is the story of those starry nights
      Em
Through desert plains and city lights
    C
Through burning sun and driving rain
      Em              D
They wept aboard the bridal train


CHORUS:

C               D
All the girls around Australia
G       G/F# Em        D 
Married to a Yankee Sailor
C
The fare is paid across the sea
       Em                        D            
To the home of the brave and the land of the free
C                     D
From west to east the young girls came
G   G/F#       Em      D
All aboard the bridal train
          C
It was a farewell crossing over land
      C                   D   G
She's gone to meet her sailor man
