BOOM, BOOM, BOOM

 

Lachlan Irvine

 

 

[E] Plane took off at a quarter to one;

Look out Charlie 'cause [E7] here I come!

With a [A7] boom, boom, boom, and a [E] bam, bam, bam

[B7] Lookin’ for ad-[A7]-venture in Viet-[E]-nam

 

[E] Plane touched down at a quarter to two;

V.C. said “we been [E7] waitin’ for you”

With a [A7] boom, boom, boom, (oh yeah!) and a [E] bam, bam, bam

You’re gonna [B7] wish you never [A7] heard of Viet-[E]-nam

 

[E] Woke one night at a quarter to three,

A shower of shrapnel rainin’ [E7] down on me

With a [A7] boom, boom, boom, (ouch!) and a [E] bam, bam, bam

[B7] Hard to get a good night’s [A7] sleep in Viet-[E]-nam

 

[E] Went out on patrol at a quarter to four,

Found myself in the middle of a [E7] shootin’ war

With a [A7] boom, boom, boom, (Whoah!) and a [E] bam, bam, bam

[B7] Ain’t havin’ too much [A7] fun here in Viet-[E]-nam

 

[E] Contact came at a quarter to five;

I just wanna get out of [E7] here alive

With a [A7] boom, boom, boom, (Look out!) and a [E] bam, bam, bam

[B7] Somebody get me [A7] out of this Viet-[E]-nam

 

[E] Caught the freedom bird at a quarter to six,

Gotta get home and learn some [E7] brand new tricks

With a [A7] boom, boom, boom, (Mmm, mmm!) and a [E] bam, bam, bam

[B7] Gotta be somethin’ [A7] better than Viet-[E]-nam

 

[E] Back in the World at a quarter to seven,

Looks like Sydney but it [E7] feels like Heaven

With a [A7] boom, boom, boom, (Alright!) and a [E] bam, bam, bam

[B7] Hello Australia, [A7] goodbye Viet-[E]-nam

 

[E] Hit the road at a quarter to eight;

Gotta keep movin,’ don’t [E7] hesitate

With a [A7] boom, boom, boom, (Let’s go!) and a [E] bam, bam, bam

[B7] Gotta keep movin’ [A7] on from Viet-[E]-nam

 

[E] Sittin’ on the porch at a quarter to nine;

I’m gettin’ old but [E7] life is fine

There’s no [A7] boom, boom, boom, no [E] bam, bam, bam

Looks like I [B7] finally made it [A7] home from Viet-[E]-nam.
