In The Army Now

Opening:@ Dm - Am - Dm - C
Dm
A vacation in the foreign land
Uncle Sam does the best he can
Gm
You're in the army now
Dm
Oh, oh you're in the army - now

Dm
Now you remember what the draft man said
Nothing to do all day but stay in bed
Gm
You're in the army now
Dm
Oh, oh you're in the army - now
Dm
You'll be a hero of the neighbourhood
Nobody knows that you left for good
Gm
You're in the army now
Am                   Dm
Oh, oh you're in the army - now
Dm
Smiling faces on the way to 'Nam
But once you get there no one gives a damn
Gm
You're in the army now
Am                   Dm
Oh, oh you're in the army - now
Break:@ Dm - Am - Dm - C
Dm
Hand grenades flying over your head $(drum breaks)
Em
The sun's flying over your head
If you wanna survive you're out of bet
Am
You're in the army now
Hm                   Em
Oh, oh you're in the army - now
Em
Shots ring out in the dead of night
The sergeant calls : "Stand up and fight!"
Am
You're in the army now
Hm                  Em
Oh, oh you're in the army - now
Em
You've got your orders to shoot on sight
your finger's on the trigger but it don't seem right
Am
You're in the army now
Hm                  Em
Oh, oh you're in the army - now
Em
Night is falling and you just can't see
Is this illusion or reality
Am
You're in the army now
Hm                  Em
Oh, oh you're in the army - now

Kick Me When Im Down

A
It didn't take you long, to find someone new
You moved right along, I can't believe it's true
B
And worst of all, it's my best friend,
C                           G
Aint that really rubbin' it in
D                A
Kick me when i'm down, why don't you
D                A
Kick me when i'm down, why don't you
D                                                 A
First you put me down, then you make clown out of me
E
It's all over town, how could you
A
Kick me when i'm down, I tell you
C        G               D                     A
They say you live and learn, but this education's killin' me

You say we'd grown apart, and that your love had died
But you made a new start, babe, before my tears had dried
I called my buddy, 'cos I was alone,
That's when you answered the phone
Kick me when i'm down, why don't you
Kick me when i'm down, why don't you
First you put me down, then you make clown out of me
It's all over town, how could you
Kick me when i'm down, I tell you
They say you live and learn, but this education's killin' me

Well i'm no stranger to pain, I got it down to a tee
From the school of hard knocks, I got my honorary phd
I didn't ask for this, I didn't treat you bad
A fool for your kiss, I gave you everything that I had
But you were wearing my old pal's ring,
While I was still wearing black
Kick me when i'm down, why don't you
Kick me when i'm down, why don't you
First you put me down, then you make clown out of me
It's all over town, how could you
Kick me when i'm down, I tell you
They say you live and learn, but this education's killin' me
They say you live and learn, but this education's killin' me

Kick me when i'm down, why don't you,
Kick me when i'm down, kick me when i'm down,
Why don't you splatter my brains all over town
Kick me when i'm down
