Intro: EEEEEEEEE

E               A               D             A
He joined up to get a job and show he wasn't scared
E                   A               D                  A
Swapped boy scout hat for army cap, he thought he'd be prepared
Gbm           B      A             E
At the age of 17 he was forced to choose
Gbm           B       A        A
At the age of 21 he's in Catch 22

E E E E

E                 A                     D               A
He joined up for just three years, it seemed a small amount
E                 A                 D                 A
But they didn't tell him that the first two didn't count
Gbm            B  A             E
At the age of 17 how was he to know
Gbm                 B  A                    A
That at the age of 21 he'd still have one to go?

(Chorus:)
E             A
Tin soldier, he signed away his name
D             A
Tin soldier, no chance for cash or fame
E             A
Tin soldier, now he know the truth
D             A
Tin soldier, he signed away his youth

E                 A                 D                A
He joined up cos Dad knew best, to do right by his son
E                     A                           D             A
And now he hates and counts the dates that mark time on square one
Gbm            B  A               E
At the age of 17 he did as he was told
Gbm               B   A                       A
Now at the age of 21 tin still won't turn to gold

(Chorus)

E E E E E E E E

E
If at the age of 17 you fall in line too soon
E
Then at the age of 21 you'll still march to their tune

Solo: Gbm, B, E,A

E            A
Tin soldier, you signed away your name
D            A
Tin soldier, no chance for cash or fame
E            A
Tin soldier, you never see the truth
D             A
Tin soldier, you sign away your youth
E             A
Tin soldier, you go and join the queue
D             A
Tin soldier, do what they want you to
E             A
Tin soldier, they take away your name
D             A
Tin soldier, they treat you all the same
E      A         B
Sign away your life
