Soldier's Joy 1864 chords - Guy Clark

Guy Clark Lyrics


            Capo 2


Am               Dm               Am                   E7
First I thought a snake had got me it happened dreadful quick
Am          Dm          Am        G     Am 
Was a bullet bit my leg, right off I got sick
Am            Dm            Am               E7
I came to in a wagon load of ten more wounded men
Am           Dm          Am              G      Am  C/G
Five was dead by the time we reached that bloody tent

C                 F              C               G7
Gimme some of that Soldier’s Joy, you know what I mean
C              F            C         G7     Am
I don’t want to hurt no more my leg is turnin’ green

The doctor came and looked at me and this is what he said
Your dancin’ days are done, son, it’s a wonder you ain’t dead
Then he went to work with a carvin’ knife sweat fell from his brow
‘Bout killed me tryin’ to save my life when he cut that lead ball out

Give me some of that Soldier’s Joy, ain’t you got no more
Hand me down my walkin’ cane I ain’t cut out for war

Red blood run right through my veins run all over the floor Run right down his apron strings like a river out the door He handed me a bottle and said, son drink deep as you can He turned away then he turned right back with a hacksaw in his hand Gimme some of that Soldier’s Joy you know what I like Bear down on that fiddle boys just like Saturday night Gimme some of that Soldier’s Joy you know what I crave I’ll be hittin’ that Soldier’s Joy til I’m in my grave C F C G C F C G Am
