Still In Saigon
By Charlie Daniels Band

I had a hard time getting this 100% but let me know
what you think…..Larry

Capo 1

Got on a plane in 'Frisco
And got off in Vietnam
I walked into a different world
The past forever gone
Em                   F#m
I could have gone to Canada
Or I could have stayed in school
    Em               F#m  
But I was brought up differently
I couldn't break the rules

Thirteen months and fifteen days
The last ones were the worst
One minute I'd kneel down and pray
And the next I'd stand and curse

No place to run to
Where I did not feel that war
When I got home I stayed alone
And checked behind each door

Cuz I'm still in Saigon
Still in Saigon
I am still in Saigon
      G  F#m   Em
In my mi-i-i—i-nd

The ground at home was covered in snow
And I was covered in sweat
My younger brother calls me a killer
And my daddy calls me a vet
Everybody says I'm someone else
And I'm sick and there's no cure
Damned if I know who I am
There was only one place I was sure

When i was: Chorus

Em           Bm 
Every summer when it rains
  Em                  Bm
I smell the jungle, I hear the planes
  Em                   Bm
I can't tell no one, I feel ashamed
  F#m                Bm
Afraid some day I'll go insane

That's been ten long years ago
And time has gone on by
Now and then I catch myself
Eyes searching through the sky
All the sounds of long ago
Will be forever in my head
Mingled with the wounded cries
And the silence of the dead

'Cuz I'm Chorus

I am still in Saigon
I am still in Saigon
Yes, I'm still in Saigon
In my mind
