WELCOME HOME (IT'S NEVER TOO LATE)

Words: Lachlan Irvine; Music: Bob Harrison


[Am] To all the unsung heroes who [Dm] deserve their special day
Welcome [Am] Home [E] Welcome [Am] Home
[Am] Though many years have passed, I hope it's [Dm] not too late to say
Welcome [Am] Home [E] Welcome [Am] Home

[Am] You went to war believing that you [G] had a job to do
I [F] know it wasn't easy; I'm so [E] glad you made it through
And I [Am] think it's time we told you all how [G] proud we are of you
Welcome [F] Home, Welcome [E] Home

[Am] Though memories can be painful and some [Dm] wounds are slow to heal
Welcome [Am] Home [E] Welcome [Am] Home
[Am] Your people now are ready to [Dm] tell you how we feel
Welcome [Am] Home [E] Welcome [Am] Home

[Am] In the footsteps of your fathers who [G] fought in Freedom's name
And your [F] grandfathers before them who [E] played War's deadly game
[Am] You followed their example, did your [G] duty just the same
Welcome [F] Home Welcome [E] Home

[Am] I hope we've gained the wisdom now to [Dm] understand the cost
Welcome [Am] Home [E] Welcome [Am] Home
[Am] And though it won't relieve the pain of [Dm] good friends you have lost
Welcome [Am] Home [E] Welcome [Am] Home

[Am] As we take a quiet moment to [G] remember those who fell
In the [F] jungles and the paddies, on the [E] battlefields of Hell
We give [Am] thanks for the survivors and we [G] raise our voice to yell

Welcome [F] Home Welcome [E] Home

Welcome [Am] Home.
