James Taylor (c) 1971

A -
       D            C          G           A
It was just after sun-rise and down by the sea
Em          Bm               G            A
down on the sand flats where nothing will grow
     D            C              G        A
come drumming and footsteps like out of a dream
          Em           Bm           A -
where the golden green waters come in.

     D          C            G                A
Just nine lucky soldiers had come through the night
Em           Bm          G         A
half of them wounded and barely alive
     D            C           G          A
Just nine out of twenty was a-headed for home
     Em           Bm        C G A -
with eleven sad stories to tell.

    C            G              Em         Bm
I remember quite clearly when I got out of bed
         C             G          Em        A         G A.
I said, "Oh, good morning. What a beautiful day."
