John Hiatt – Homeland Live chords

Chords:
Transpose:
[Verse 1]
EmWell, I jumped so high knocked the table over
DThought I saw a ghost come out of the clover
C B EmShe lived in this house forty odd years or so
She was buried in the back with the English and the Natives
DSlaughtered like sheep, women and babies
C B EmA lot of blood and tears three hundred years ago
It's like they're caught up in the trees in the webs of spiders
DSpun out of leaves, ghostly riders
C B EmLookin' for a trail to find their way back home
But there's nothing back there or tomorrow
D CNo place they can put their sorrow heavy as death
B EmCold as a broken stone
[Chorus]
C G D EmAnd I call this place my homeland and I claim this land I own
C G D B EmBut it belongs to another people.. they possess it in their bones
[Verse 2]
EmWell, I can hear them in the night like a hundred televisions
DHummin' down low beneath the subdivisions
C B EmAll they really want is if we can hear em now
They been troublin' this plane, looking for attention
DMaking crazy tracks, they need an intervention
C B EmAll they really want, is to get back home somehow
DSo build up a fire, say a little prayer and cook a little meat
CPull 'em up a chair and offer them a plate
B EmMaybe we can all find peace
DYou can't bury anything, men or nations, old memories, old vibrations
C B EmThe pain doesn't stop.. just because the killing ceased
[Chorus]
C G D EmAnd I call this place my homeland and I claim this land I own
C G D B EmIt belongs to another people... they possess it in their bones
[Instrumental] C G D Em C G D B7 Em [Verse 3]
EmWell, I jumped so high straight up off the bedsheet
DNightmare sky... bloody with the red heat
C B EmStarted to shake cause I couldn't find my way back home
Well, I landed in the ditch landed in the gutter
DLanded in arms of my long lost mother
C B EmCryin' like a child while Bayou Pierre groaned
[Chorus]
C G D EmAnd I call this place my homeland and I Love this land I own
C G D B EmBut It belongs to another people they possess it in their bones
C G D EmYeah, I call this place my homeland and I claim this land I own
C G D B EmBut it belongs to another people they possess it in their bones..
[Outro] D C B Em
