Dm   F   C   G
Dm   Am  C   G
Am   Am


VERSE:
AmMama's crying in the back room she won't let nobody in
G AmThere's bill's to pay and mouths to feed and daddys drunk again
AmRain comes through the trailer roof and fills the buckets to the brim
G AmBetween the death and cigarettes a childhood gives in
Am DmAnd out of trailer parks and foreclosed homes
G CI cut my teeth so bittersweet out on the road
C DmBut now I'm getting old and it's so hard to settle down
G E AmLeave another low down city to another goddamn town
INMSTRUMENTAL: Am G F G Am G F G Am Am VERSE:
AmLay down upon the barren earth and rest your weary eyes
G AmDive deep into your memory and lock yourself inside
AmRemember how the roses grew when watered with sweet tea
GThose southern nights those golden days you layed
AmYourself besides me
VERSE:
Am C Am DI'm bound for better days and hope these wounds will heal
G CBut scars last till the bitter end when flesh breaks under steal
DmAt night I like awake and I wish I would've stayed
GOut on the banks and lowman road
E Am Till the end of my days
CHORUS:
Dm Am CYou'll find a new way and a life in truth
G DmAnd you finally will see dear God let me be
Am CYou go your way and I'll go mine
GI won't cross the Great Divide
Dm Am CAlthough sometimes in the morning when it hurts the most
CI hear you calling me
GDear God let me be
Dm Am CYou'll find a new way and a life in truth
G E AmAnd you finally will see dear God let me be
INMSTRUMENTAL: Am G F G Am G F G Am Am VERSE:
AmSo if you see my darlin' won't you send my love
G AmSix months to the day and she is all I'm thinking of
AmSee to it she's got a coat against the winters cold
G AmA fireplace to keep her warm and rest her weary souls
VERSE:
C DmAre bound by blood and fire until the very end
G CA heart that's bound by wild desire will not give in
DmSo lay yourself down easy in the bitter root and pine
G EmLet the trials of this world make you stronger
E AmOr pass you bye
CHORUS:
Am Dm Am CYou'll find a new way and a life in truth
G DmAnd you finally will see dear God let me be
Am CYou go your way and I'll go mine
GI won't cross the Great Divide
Dm Am CAlthough sometimes in the morning when it hurts the most
CI hear you calling me
GDear God let me be
Dm Am CYou'll find a new way and a life in truth
G DmAnd you finally will see dear God let me be
OUTRO: Dm F C G Dm F C G E Am
