                          G        D
Last night I dreamed that I was a child
                                   A
Out where the pines grow wild and tall
        D       G                         D
I was trying to make it home through the forest
               A     D
Before the darkness falls

                         G             D
I heard the wind rustling through the trees
                                   A
And ghostly voices rose from the fields
              D               G               D
I ran with my heart pounding down that broken path
               A               D
With the devil snappin' at my heels

                                G            D
I broke through the trees, and there in the night
                                           A
My father's house stood shining hard and bright
           D              G                                 D
The branches and brambles tore my clothes and scratched my arms
                        A              D
But I ran till I fell, shaking in his arms 

            D                         A                       D

                                G                      D
I awoke and I imagined the hard things that pulled us apart
                                                   A
Will never again, sir, tear us from each other's hearts
         D                  G           D
I got dressed, and to that house I did ride
                                       A                  D
From out on the road, I could see its windows shining in light

                           G            D
I walked up the steps and stood on the porch
                                                                  A
A woman I didn't recognize came and spoke to me through a chained door
                  D       G            D
I told her my story, and who I'd come for
                                              A                D
She said "I'm sorry, son, but no one by that name lives here anymore"

                        G           D
My father's house shines hard and bright
                                            A
It stands like a beacon calling me in the night
             D       G            D
Calling and calling, so cold and alone
                                           A            D
Shining `cross this dark highway where our sins lie unatoned
