I don't have chords, but here are the lyrics.
-Joe Offer-

WELCOME HOME
(Eric Bogle)

When the boys came home, Annie cried and Annie cheered
She'd been on her own for a long and lonely year
Living on his letters from far-away Vietnam
And dreading an official telegram
So she was waiting at the station when his train came rolling in
She ached with the anticipation of holding him again
And suddenly he was standing there in his crumpled uniform
In a heartbeat she was in his arms

CHORUS
Welcome home boys, welcome home
Don't you know you've been gone too long
Did you wonder, over there
When you were tired, when you were scared
If your country really cared?
Welcome home.

When a nation goes to war, everyone's a casualty
Some are maimed and scarred, but most have wounds you cannot see
So in place of the man that she had known, Annie found instead
A sick and troubled stranger in her bed
But she was stubborn, she was loving,
So she stayed all through the years
Through the bad times and the drinking, the rages and the tears
For where hate is muddy quicksand, love is tempered steel
Annie waited for his wounds to heal.

Welcome home boys, welcome home
Don't you know that you've been gone too long
We're just so glad that you survived
And only you will wonder why
You lived when your mates died
Welcome home

On a sunny Sydney morning I heard old war drums beat
And watched the boys come marching down the city street
To claim the place in a nation's heart
That their blood and pain had earned
And a nation rejoiced in their return
If that day helped to heal some wounds is a matter of debate
For some it had come none too soon, for others far too late
But I found myself hoping as the boys went marching past
That for them the war was over at last

Welcome home boys, welcome home
Don't you know you've been gone too long
What you went through in Vietnam
We can't begin to understand
But to each and every man
Welcome home

Welcome home boys, welcome home
Don't you know you've been gone too long
May the years bring you release
As the memories decrease
May you find some kind of peace
Welcome home.
May you find some kind of peace
Welcome home.
