Last night I was walking through the harbour,
          F                 G            Am
Where the fishing boats are lying on the shore,
    Em                               F           G
The news had travelled fast and everyone went to be,
          C         G        F
Where the mayor was making a speech,
        C      
And the crowd started cheering,
        F                G           Am
When he talked about the glory of it all,
        Dm          G             Am
And the boys coming home from the war
 
 
                      Am7            Aadd9
Last night, they were dancing in the streets,
           F            G             Am
And making music in the alleyways and bars,
       Em                                  F        G
From a house down in the old town came the sound of guitars,
     C        G         F
Margarita was waiting inside,
         C          E   
With her long black hair
        F                G                  Am
Hanging down beneath the red light, and she smiled
        Dm          G             Am
For the boys coming home from the war,
    Dm          G             Am       F
The boys coming home from the war
 
 
CHORUS:
         C                         F
And they said we were heroes, they said we were fine,
        C                        F
We were kings in command, we had god on our side,
              C                    F         G   Am    F
And we said, "Nothing will make us change in any way,
            C                   F
Since yesterday (we're just the same),
            C                F   
Since yesterday (nothing has changed),
            C                   F
Since yesterday (we're just the same)"
                     C                    G                F     G
I can feel there's a new kind of hunger inside, to be satisfied
                    Am    F  Am
I saw it there last night
 
 
                  Am7                 Aadd9
Last night, I was walking through the shadows,
     F                G             Am
Far away from all the music and the girls,
       Em                           F        G
When I saw a soldier waiting with a woman in black,
         C         G       F
And they stood without any word,
     C                          F            G            Am
Just staring at a photograph of someone, and she began to cry,
      Dm         G           Am
For a boy left behind in the war,
     G                      Am   F   Am   F 
Some boy left behind in the war
 
 
CHORUS:
         C                         F
And they said we were heroes, they said we were fine,
        C                        F
We were kings in command, we had god on our side,
              C                    F         G   Am    F
And we said, "Nothing will make us change in any way,
            C                   F
Since yesterday (we're just the same),
            C                F   
Since yesterday (nothing has changed),
            C                   F
Since yesterday (we're just the same)"
                        C                    G                F     G
I can feel there's this new kind of hunger inside, to be satisfied
                    C                 F             C
I saw it there last na na na na na na na na na, hey hey
