F Dm Bb G Dm Dm7 C We met as soul mates on Parris Island, Dm Dm7 C we left as inmates from an asylum. Em Am Em Am And we were sharp, as sharp as knives Dm Dm/C G C G and we were so gung-ho to lay down our lives.

Em Am Em Am And we learned fast to travel light, Dm C Bb G Dm G our arms were heavy but our bellies were tight. Dm Dm7 C We had no home front, we had no soft soap. Dm Dm7 C They sent us Playboy, they gave us Bob Hope. Em Am Em Am We dug in deep and shot on sight Dm F G C G and prayed to Jesus Christ with all of our might.

F Bb C C7 And we would all go down together, F Bb C C7 we said we'd all go down together, F Bb G F Dm Bb yes, we would all go down together. G F Dm Bb ... (C+ = 032110) --
