The Amazing Rhythm Aces
From the Album "Burning the Ballroom Down"

Verse .1.
(D)I have heard the cannons thundering all(G)night
And I(D)cannot sleep for wondering why's a rebels cause so(A)right
And the(D)morphine seems to do no good at(G)all
And I would(A)run away it I would not(D)fall

Verse .2.
I joined the southern cavalry for(G)fun
And I had(D)rode a thousand horses
Always had a way with a(A)gun
Now I'm(D)among the horseless riders Iying(G)still
Swallowed(A)up by the cause on the widows(D)hill

And I(Bm)dreamed about a rose in a Spanish(F#m)garden
And I(Bm)kissed you and I placed it in your(F#m)hair (A)
And if I'm(D)ever on my feet again I(G)will
And I will(A)run all the way just to meet you(D)there.

Verse .3 (Added on the 1996 Album "Ride Again Vol.1) 
Through the day I watched those southern boys go(G)down
And they(D)lay like Georgia peaches bruised and broken on the(A)ground
Through the(D)night I wondered was it worth the(G)pain
And I(A)cried not revenge I called your(D)name

Repeat Chorus
