Here is Motherland from Christy's newest album, Burning Times. I took this version from the 
Live in Dublin DVD. Easy to play once you get the rhythm right.


Capo fret 1


Em                    Bm
Where in hell can you go
 C                             G
Far from the things that you know
C                        G
Far from the sprawl of concrete
                         D
That keeps crawling its way
                        Em
About a thousand miles a day


Em                    Bm
Take one last look behind
   C                       G
Commit this to memory and mind
 C                                G
Don't miss this wasteland, this terrible place
          D
When you leave
                           Em
keep your heart off your sleeve


Chorus:

       G            D
Motherland,  cradle me
          C
Close my eyes
               G
Lullaby me to sleep
         C
Keep me safe
            G
Lie with me

Stay beside me
      D
Don't go
          Em
Don't you go


Verse:
Oh, my five and dime queen
Tell me what have you seen
The lust and the avarice
The bottomless, cavernous greed
Is that what you see?

Chorus:
Motherland cradle me
Close my eyes
Lullaby me to sleep
Keep me safe
Lie with me
Stay beside me
Don't go
Don't you go


Bridge:
           C
It's your happiness
        G
I want most of all
         C           A           D
And for that I'd do anything at all
          D
Oh, mercy me
                 C
If you want the best of love
        G
Or the most from life
            C          A         D
If there's anything I can do at all


Verse:
Now come on shot gun bride
What makes me envy your life
The faceless, the nameless
The innocent, the blameless
And free
What's it like to be?


Chorus:
Motherland, cradle me
Close my eyes
Lullaby me to sleep
Keep me safe
Lie with me
Stay beside me
Don't go
          Em
Don't you go

At the end of the first line of each verse, use Bm instead of D, eg.
Em Bm
Where in hell can you go,

the rest is fine

the Bm should be over the word "go" in that previous comment
