Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: And the Band Played Waltzing
Here's a sequence I worked out by ear. It uses more chords and more chord changes than other renditions I've heard, and will probably irritate some people (sorry!). Nevertheless, it sounds good to me, and for those who, like me, don't do any picking to speak of, it helps flesh out the instrumental portion.

C Am G Am C G7 C -
When I was a young man......pack..........rover
repeatC Am G Am C G7 C -
Dm G F C Dm G F C
Then in nineteen-fifteen......son...............done
repeatC Am G Am C G7 C -

Refrain:
C F C - C Am G -
And the band......matilda.............quay
F Dm C Am - Am G7 C
And amid all the tears.............sailed.....Gallipoli

Summary:
C Am G Am C G7 C - (1st, 2nd, & 4th lines of verse)
Dm G F C Dm G F C (3rd line of verse)
C F C - C Am G - (1st half of refrain)
F Dm C Am - Am G7 C (2nd half " " )

(If I goofed up the line breaks, I'll repost)
