Tabbed by: Brannon

Capo: 2nd fret

Two days past eighteen

He was waitin' for the bus in his army greens


Sat down in a booth at a café there

Gave his order to the girl with a bow in her hair

He's a little shy so she gave him a smile

So he said would you mind sittin' down for a while

	Cadd9			G
And talkin' to me I'm feelin' a little low

		F		C		G
She said I'm off in an hour and I know where we can go

So they went down and they sat on the pier
He said I bet you got a boyfriend but I don't care
I've got no one to send a letter to
Would you mind if I sent one back here to you?

Em    C
I cried
Never gonna hold the hand of another guy

Too young for him they told her
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/d/dixie_chicks/traveling_soldier_crd.html ]
Waitin' for the love of the travelin' soldier

Our love will never end

Waitin' for the soldier to come back again

Never more to be alone

D		  			G
When the letter says a soldier's coming home

So the letters came
From an army camp
In California then Vietnam
And he told his heart
It might be love
And all of the things he was so scared of

Said when it's gettin kinda rough over here
I think about that day sittin' down at the pier
And close my eyes and see your pretty smile
Now don't worry but I won't be able to write for a while


One Friday night at a football game
The Lord's Prayer said and the anthem sang
A man said folks would you bow your heads
For the list of local Vietnam dead

Cryin' all alone under the stands
Was the piccolo player in the marching band
And one name read and no one really cared
But a pretty little girl with a bow in her hair
