Here is Motherland from Christy's newest album, Burning Times. A very good version, 
the one from the Dublin DVD. Easy to play once you mget the rhythm right.

Capo fret 1

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


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


Chorus:

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

Stay beside me
      C
Don't go
          Am
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:
           F
It's your happiness
        C
I want most of all
         F           D           C
And for that I'd do anything at all
          C
Oh, mercy me
                 F
If you want the best of love
        C
Or the most from life
            F          D         C
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
	  Am
Don't you go
