[Intro]
A F#m E
A F#m E

[Verse]
F#mI remember that summer
DI was ten years old
A EWhen our days ceased to shine
F#mNo, you could not take a breath
DWhen those black blizzards came
A EStrippin' land in dire need of rain
[Verse]
F#mThere was dirt on the floor
DAs mama swept all day long
A ELeavin' trails of tears and mud down her face
F#mThere was dirt in our beds
DAnd there was dirt in our clothes
A EAnd there was dirt in the little that we ate
[Verse]
F#mWe had heard about the market's fall
DA couple years before
A EBut the fields and the harvest all seemed fine
F#mSometimes the things that kill us
DThat which we don't know
A EThat strip the land of everything but pride
[Chorus]
AStay close together
F#m E E E EThat's all we knew to get by
AI recall a helpless feelin'
F#m EFirst time that I sa-aw my father cry
D ALooking back on everything we had
E E E EAnd on everything we lost
A F#mStill makes me wonder
E E E EWas staying wo-rth the cost
[Verse]
F#mA lot of town folk up and left
DThey boarded up the schools and banks
AAnd the churches
EAnd that, to me, was wrong
F#mCome next year, it would be better
DFor the last one standing tall
A EFor the ones - that showed the most resolve
[Verse]
F#mThey announced the New Deal
DWith the Conservation Act and then
A EThe Relief Fund - we were on our knees
F#mThere was little hope by then
DSo we just stood there in that line
A EAnd we thanked the man for that little bit of cheese
[Chorus]
AStay close together
F#m E E E EThat's all we knew to get by
AI recall a helpless feelin'
F#m EFirst time that I sa-aw my father cry
D ALooking back on everything we had
E E E EAnd on everything we lost
A F#mStill makes me wonder
E E E EWas staying wo-rth the cost
[Outro] F#m D A E F#m D A E F#m D A E F#m D A E
