I Was Only 19
The Herd
Intro: A C G D A G A A 

A                       C
Mum, Dad and Denny were some amongst many
G                              D
who came to watch the passing out parade at Puckapunyal
A                       G
Seemed every man and his mongrel cam watched cadets stumble
A                         A
on the long march to the Viet jungle.
A                            C
"Oh Christ", I mumbled as I drew that card
        G                           D
and my mates came to slap me on the back with due regard
             A                    G
We were the sixth battalion, yep next to tour
         A                         A
we did Canungra and Shoalwater before we left, rest assured
E                                E
Seemed half of Townsville turned out to see us leave
      D                          A
they lined the footpaths as we marched to the quay
         E                            E
And the papers wrote it up like you wouldn't believe
                  D                          A
but we were only looking to the future for a fast reprieve
     F#m                       E 
And there's all of us looking young
                         D                  A
strong and clean rockin' slouch hats slung SLRs and greens
      E    E       F#m     D
God help me, I was only nineteen

      A                      C               
From Vung Tau the black helicopters
             G                          D
the chinhook pilots seemed relieved at Nui Dat when he dropped us
A                         G
Seems like months running on and off landing pads
A                         A
letters to Dad it's like, man, he's sad
        A                           C
But he can't see the tents that we call home
G                          D
cans of VB, pin-ups of chicks off TV
        A                           G
The heat, the mosquitoes, and the noise suprising
           A                         A
like the first time you see an agent orange horizon

    E                      E                  D                       A
So please can you tell me doctor why I can't get to sleep the scar's left in me? 
    E                      E                  D                       A
Night time's just a jungle dark and a barking M16 that keeps saying "rest in peace"
     F#m                       E               D                       A
And what's this rash that comes and goes Don't suppose you can tell me what that means?
      E    E       F#m     D
God help me, I was only nineteen

A                      C                     G                       D
Sent off on a four-week long operation where every single step could be your last one
A                   G                A                       A
On two legs were sorta living hell falling with the shells, war within yourself
E                         E                               D     
But you couldn't let your mates down 'til they had you dusted off
                   A
so you closed your eyes and thought of something else
E                         E                  
Someone yelled "contact!" another bloke swore
D                           A
we hooked in for hours then a god almighty roar
F#m                   E                 D                  A
Then Frankie kicked a mine the day that mankind kicked the moon
      E      E       F#m     D
God help me, he was going home in June

          A                      C                     G                       D
And I can still see Frank with a can in his hand thirty-six hour leave in the bar at the Grand
          A                   G                A                       A
And I can still hear Frank a screaming mess of bleeding flesh couldn't retrieve his legs
             E                  E                    D                         A
You see the ANZAC legend neglected to mention the mud, the fear,the blood,the tears,the tension
E                   E                    D                      A
Dad's recollection beyond comprehension didn't seem quite real until we were sent in
F#m                     E                    D                            A
Chaos and confusion the fire and steel hot shrapnel in my back I didn't even feel
      E      E       F#m     D
God help me, I was only 19

   E                      E                  D                       A
So please can you tell me doctor why I can't get to sleep I can't hardly eat? 
         E                          E                      D                A
And the sound of the Channel Seven chopper still chills me to my feet still fuels my grief?
     F#m                    E                      D                  A
And what's this rash that comes and goes like the dreams can tell me what that means?
      E    E       F#m     D
God help me, I was only nineteen

A             C             G             D

      E                E                D                     A
This clipping from the papers showed us young and strong and clean
F#m             E            D        A
There me in me slouch hat me SLR and greens
