The song starts with switches between E and Esus.

Fm	   A		    E      Esus  E
This is the story of Bobby and June
Fm	   A		       E
A boy and a girl who kidnapped the moon
But they fell in love
To the sound of guns
Fm	    A E
The year was 1861

Fm	     A			E   Esus E
The army came looking for men to recruit
Fm		    A		        E
Dressin’ boys up like soldiers in blue Union suits
B				A
Take this sword and cut down Johnny Reb
They said
Fm		 A		       E
You’ll come back a hero or you’ll come back dead
[ Tab from: ]

Don’t go away from me now

I want you to stay

It was the morning of Christmas when June heard a sound
Of someone approaching their boots scraping on the ground
As she looked out the window her heart pounded in her breast
A broken young Bobby was clutching a wounded chest

She ran out to help ease his pain
He looked up and whispered her name
Fm				           A
Then she cradled his head in her arms and he smiled
When he heard his June say
