Rodger Young Recorded by Jim Reeves Written by Frank Loesser
G Em On July 31st 1943 a bloody round in the battle G For the Solomon Islands was being fought in the tangled Em Jungle of the island of New Georgia G This is the story of one of the young men who fought and died there D7 This song is respectfully dedicated to those heroic infantrymen C G Who like Rodger Young have sacrificed their lives Em G That their nation might remain forever free
D7 G D7 G Caught in ambush lay a company of riflemen D7 G Just grenades against machine guns in the gloom C G Em Caught in ambush till this one of twenty riflemen G D7 G Volunteered volunteered to meet his doom
Bm Volunteered Rodger Young G Bm Em Fought and died for the men he marched among G C G Em In the everlasting courage of the infantry G D7 G Was the courage of Private Rodger Young
D7 G On the island of New Georgia in the Solomon's D7 G Stands a simple wooden cross alone to tell C G Em That beneath the silent coral of the Solomon's G D7 G Sleeps a man sleeps a man remembered well
Am G D7 G Sleeps a man Rodger Young D7 G Bm Em Fought and died for the men he marched among G C G Em In the everlasting glory of the infantry G D7 G Lives the story of Private Rodger Young
