																				HELLO VIETNAM
Recorded by: Johnny Wright
Writer: Tom T. Hall

CAPO: 4th FRET/KEY: F#/PLAY: D


INTRO:
D    G

Kiss me goodbye and write me while I'm gone
    A7                               D

Good- bye, my sweetheart, Hello Viet- nam.
A7                         D

America has heard the bugle call
       A7                          D               
And you know it involves us, one an all
 G                                D               
I don't suppose that war will ever end
       A7                                D        
There's fighting that will break us up a- gain.



    

CHORUS
     G                            D               
Good- bye, my darling, Hello Viet- nam
 G                            A7                   
A hill to take, a battle to be won
    G                                 D           
Kiss me goodbye and write me while I'm gone
     A7                              D             
Good- bye, my sweetheart, Hello Viet- nam.
                                                   
A ship is waiting for us at the dock
America has trouble to be stopped
We must stop Communism in that land
Or freedom will start sliping thru our hands.   

NARRATION: (Chorus sung in background)
I hope and pray someday the world will learn
That fires we don't put out, will bigger burn
We must save freedom now, at any cost
Or someday, our own freedom will be lost.

TAG:
D    G                                D               
Kiss me goodbye and write me while I'm gone
     A7                              D                
Good- bye, my sweetheart, Hello Viet- nam.

Kiss, me goodbye and write me while I'm gone
Good, bye, my sweetheart, Hello Viet, nam.

America has heard the bugle, call
And you know it involves us, one an all
I don't suppose that war will ever end
There's fighting that will break us up a gain.

Good bye, my darling, Hello Viet nam
A hill to take, a battle to be won
Kiss me goodbye and write me while I'm gone
Good bye, my sweetheart, Hello Viet nam.

A ship is waiting for us at the dock
America has trouble to be stopped
We must stop Communism in that land
Or freedom will start slipping through our hands.

I hope and pray someday the world will learn
That fires we don't put out, will bigger burn
We must save freedom now, at any cost
Or someday, our own freedom will be lost.

Kiss me goodbye and write me while I'm gone
Good bye, my sweetheart, Hello Viet nam.
