Gm
My name is Marley Peyton, my middle name is Rose
                                   F       Gm
I never met nobody from up North I don't suppose
Gm                                             Am
But I can sing a song for you, you can sing it too
Gm                                  
"Twinkle twinkle silver star   
                            
"Twinkle twinkle silver star
Gm                                   F        Gm
"Twinkle twinkle silver star, I will wait for you"
Gm
I come from Carolina - the middle of this day
                                  F Gm
Got married to a soldier boy in 1968
Gm                                           Am
Or was it '69 now - my memory don't serve me well
Gm                   F   Gm
Oh, oh...
Gm
Papa he cried for his little girl; Mama she cried for joy
                                          F      Gm
Me I lay awake and cry for the love of my soldier boy
Gm                                             Am
Some say that he went crazy; some say he was before
Gm                 
Mama mama pray for me, Mama mama pray for me
Gm                               F       Gm
Mama mama pray for me, me and my soldier boy
Gm
Outside the rain comes pouring down
Gm
Through the rain I hear him call
Gm
Half-past ten and he wants in
                              F Gm
Ain't nothin' gonna stop him at all
Gm                                       Am
"Oh come to me my soldier, come to me my life
Gm                                        F    Gm
Come to me my soldier boy on this our wedding night..."
Gm
His shadow fills my doorway
Gm
His weapon in his hand
Gm
I hear him scream to no one there
                    F  Gm
He'll drop us where we stand
Gm                                                  Am
And in his eyes a fire burns this village he takes down
Gm                                          F         Gm
And from the wall one Silver Star now falls without a sound
Gm
I hear him pull the trigger
Gm
They say he felt no pain
Gm
I left lying where he stood
Gm               F       Gm
Face down in the pouring rain
Gm                                                    Am 
And on the ground beneath his head a Silver Star does lay
Gm                                             F       Gm
And in his fist one single rose from this our wedding day
Gm
My name is Marley Peyton, my middle name is Rose
Gm                                 F     Gm    
I never met nobody from up North I don't suppose
Gm                                             Am
But I can sing a song for you; you can sing it too
Gm
"Twinkle twinkle Silver Star

Twinkle twinkle Silver Star

Twinkle twinkle Silver Star
Gm          F   Gm
I will wait for you..."
