[intro]
G C G D
G


G                                    C            G
Not another foot was stirring on the floor of the house
D                            C        G
except for my 'pa who'd been up for a while
G                               C             G
Seems he's headin' on after the bad word that came,
        D                            C             G
of his brothers who marched but were left down all slain

       D
Please call out the cavalry
C           G
Send them along
     D
For we need out daddy,
    C            G
and so does this farm

     C
Mama stays awake to pray,
      G
in a lonely straw bed
       D
and we rise before the sun
         C            G
with the work that he left

G C G

G                             C               G
He took what mama made him to feed him on his way
    D                         C            G
he kissed all my brothers, my sisters, and me
     G                       C               G
he held my poor mama, looked down and said, "Son,
         D                        C           G
I'll be home soon, now hand me my coat and my gun."


       D
Please call out the cavalry
C         G

    D
For we need out daddy
    C            G
and so does this farm

     C
Mama stays awake to pray
      G
in a lonely straw bed
       D
and we rise before the sun
         C            G
with the work that he left

G                                    C            G
It's been some days without him, but we've toiled away
D                            C                G
hang onto the cattle and the crops that we've laid
G                           C            G
mama sits by the window and stares until dark
      D                   C             G
and rocks by the fire and cries out her heart

       D
Please call out the cavalry
C           G
Send my man home
    D
For we need out daddy
    C            G
and so does this farm

     G                         C            G
mama stays awake to pray, in a lonely straw bed
       D                            C             G
and we rise before the sun, for the work that you left

G                          C         G
been about a year since my daddy had gone
       D                          C             G
when I saw an old carriage, and a coat I'd once known
       G                          C               G
it was draped o'er a man who once stood proud and tall
    D                       C          G
now broken and battered and missing an arm

G                                C               G
he cried when he saw us, and the words they came slow
       D                        C              G
of the sunrise he found and the hell that he'd known
    G                        C          G
he asked for forgiveness for failing us all
     D                     C         G
his duty cut short, in the battle he lost

          D                          C           G
We said, "don't mind that daddy, for now you are home,
    D                           C           G
now mama cries for joy, and she won't sleep alone.
       C                              G
You've sons and you've daughters, now please use our arms."
    D                            C          G
Now rise before the sun, for the work to be done.
