Xmas in February

Track Info

A A6 A E A A6 A E [Verse]
A A6 A Sam was lyin' in the jungle E Agent orange spread against

the sky like marmalade
A Hendrix played on
A6sus4 A
some foreign jukebox
D They were praying to be saved A A6sus4 A Those gooks were fierce and fearless E That's the price you pay

when you invade
A A6sus4 A E Xmas in February [Verse]
A A6sus4 A Sam lost his arm in some border town E His fingers are mixed with someone's crop A If he didn't have
A6sus4 A
that opium to smoke
D The pain would never ever stop A Half his friends are stuffed
A6sus4 A
into black body bags
E With their names printed

at the top
A A6 A E Xmas in February [Verse]
A A6sus4 A Sammy was a short order cook E In a short order black and

blue collar town
A Everybody worked
A6sus4 A
the steel mill
D But the steel mill got closed down A A6sus4 A He thought if he joined the Army E He'd have a future

that was sound
A A6sus4 A E Like no Xmas in February [Guitar]
A A6sus4 A E A A6sus4 A D A A6sus4 A E A A6sus4 A E [Verse]
A A6sus4 A Sam's staring at the Vietnam Wall E It's been a while now that

he's home
A His wife and kid have left,
A6sus4 A
he's unemployed
D He's a reminder of the war

that wasn't won
A He's that guy on the street
A6sus4 A
with the sign that reads
E "Please help send this Vet home" A A6sus4 A But he is home E And there's no Xmas in February,

no matter how much he saves
A A6 A E A A6sus4 A D A A6sus4 A E A A6sus4 A E [Solo]
A A6 A E A A6 A D A A6 A E A A6 A E [Outro]
