Music: Elton John Lyrics: Bernie Taupin Note of Interest: Apparently Dusty Springfield's on baking vocals for this song. =] Capo 1 Intro: | D | G/D | D | G/D | D | D G/D F#m7 From this day on I own my father's gun. Bm Bm/A G We dug his shallow grave beneath the sun. A F#/A# Bm D/A G I laid his broken body down - below the southern line. C Bm G A7 It wouldn't do to bury him - where any Yankee stands. D G/D F#m7 I'll take my horse and I'll ride the northern plain. Bm Bm/A G To wear the colour of the greys and join the fight again. A F#/A# Bm D/A G I'll not rest until I know - the cause is fought and won. C Bm G D From this day on, until I die, I'll wear my father's gun. CHORUS: F# Bm Am7 G I'd like to know where the riverboat sails to - night. F#7 Bm Am7 G To New Orleans well that's just fine al - right. E A F#/A# F# Bm Am `Cause there's fighting there and the company needs men. G A | C/D * D * | D7 G/D D * | So slip us a rope and sail on round the bend. D G /D F#m7 As soon as this is over we'll go home. Bm Bm/A G To plant the seeds of justice in our bones. A F#/A# Bm D/A G To watch the children growing - and see the women sewing. C Bm G D There'll be laughter when the bells of freedom ring. (Repeat Chorus 5x to Fade)
