Verse

    G                              Am                    C/G
One summer evening drunk to hell I stood there nearly lifeless
    G                                  C/G            Am
An old man in the corner sang where the water lilies grow
    G                             Am              C/G
And on the jukebox Johnny sang about a thing called love
          G          Am        C          G
And it's how are you kid and what's your name
     C                    Am
And how would you bloody know?

Verse

   G                                        Am                 C/G
In blood and death 'neath a screaming sky I lay down on the ground
        G                               C/G               Am
And the arms and legs of other men were scattered all around
     G                                                 Am                    C/G
Some cursed, some prayed, some prayed then cursed then prayed and bled some more
        G     Am        C        G
And the only thing that I could see
       G             Am              C       G
Was a pair of brown eyes that was looking at me
     G           Am             C            G
But when we got back, labeled parts one to three
          G           Am          C         G
There was no pair of brown eyes waiting for me
       G        Am        C         G
And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go
       C             Am
For a pair of brown eyes

Verse

  G                                 Am             C/G
I looked at him he looked at me all I could do was hate him
      G                         C/G          Am
While Ray and Philomena sang of my elusive dream
  G                                        Am                     C/G
I saw the streams, the rolling hills where his brown eyes were waiting
      G        Am       C           G
And I thought about a pair of brown eyes 
       C           Am
that waited once for me

Verse

   G                                       Am                     C/G
So drunk to hell I left the place sometimes crawling sometimes walking
  G                                        C/G                Am
A hungry sound came across the breeze so I gave the walls a talking
      G                             Am           C/G
And I heard the sounds of long ago from the old canal
        G           Am       C       G
And the birds were whistling in the trees
           C                Am
Where the wind was gently laughing
