C                       Am             C
This is the story about Billy and Sue, they were 
as in love as were any two.
        C            G                 F
And yet Billy had to die..and when you hear the 
       G                              C   Am
reason why, you'll hang your head and cry.

C                     Am                      C
Billy and Sue met the first day of school and ever 
since lived by the Golden Rule.
        C               G                F
Because they'll do unto others, what you wouldn't 
             G                       C    Am
want done to'd have to be a fool.

     C                   Am
This mutual agreement of love and trust, they would 
C                  Am
travel the road to marriage or bust.
         C                       G
And when Billy was old enough to take a wife, he was 
F                           G                      C   Am
old enough to fight for his country and its way of life.

Bm                 Gbm        A
Sues' letters came every day..strengthened his cause, 
     Em                     F       
they showed him the way, to fight for his country and 
    C              G                       Am   Bm
the girl he loved..that's a soldier's only pay.

    D                   Bm                    D
But then Billy heard no more from Sue, he was worried 
sick, but what could he do?
    D                            A
The bullets were screaming as he hugged the ground,
         G     A               D     Bm
and back home..Sue was runnin' round.

D                 Bm                        D
Billy was gettin' less and less strong, his hope, his fate, 
was almost gone.
    D                     A                      G
And then like a miracle a letter appeared..Billy tore the 
                   A          D    Bm
letter open and he read, Dear John.
  D                               Bm               D
A look came over Billy that would scare a ghost..a familiar 
look seen on soldiers coast to coast.
    D                       A                       G
And even though the air was filled with lead, Billy jumped 
    A             D    Bm
up..they shot him dead.

D                     Bm                       D
Billy was buried in a far away grave, it read, for his country, 
his life he gave.
         D           A                       G
But that epitaph was only in part..he didn't die from a bullet, 
       A                   D     Bm
but he died, from a broken heart.

......D Bm D Bm D Bm......(Fade.)
