[Intro]
Am

     Am                        F        
They took him in arrest with a shot through his chest
    E                  Am
And many more followed through
    Am                   F              
The men folk shook their heads and said,
    E                  Am
"We did what we had to do."
          Am                      F
While the women folk buried their heads in their hands
    E                      Am
and covered the children’s eyes
   Am                 F
Before they turned to see Mr. Watson’s
E                 Am
children and wife crying

   F             C
Oh Lord, why the storm?
      G          Am
These shores you scorn
       F        C
In the times we make
          G         Am
While our lives you take
         F                        Am
Well you sent a devil down to the Ten Thousand Islands
   G                    F
To raise cane and wreck hell
        F       Am              
Oh and now he’s face down
     G                    Am       
face down in those bloody shells

     Am                        F        
Here life ain’t grand as sugar cane is sweet
         E               Am
when the tides bring misery
    Am              F      
Of two young lovers shot all to hell
     E                   Am
over land while Watson’s free

   F             C
Oh Lord, why the storm?
      G          Am
These shores you scorn
       F        C
In the times we make
          G         Am
While our lives you take
         F                        Am
Well you sent a devil down to the Ten Thousand Islands
   G                    F
To raise cane and wreck hell
        F       Am              
Oh and now he’s face down
     G                    Am       
face down in those bloody shells

Am F G Am x4

      Am                      F        
Well, boy raise an ear before you raise your iron
  E                  Am
Unless you aim with will
    Am                  F        
For Edgar J. won’t back down to you son
    E                     Am
And that’s why he will be killed

   F             C
Oh Lord, why the storm?
      G          Am
These shores you scorn
       F        C
In the times we make
          G         Am
While our lives you take
         F                        Am
Well you sent a devil down to the Ten Thousand Islands
   G                    F
To raise cane and wreck hell
        F       Am              
Oh and now he’s face down
     G                    Am       
face down in those bloody shells

Am F G Am x4

Thank you very much, Nick. I appreciate you taking the time to rate them and provide the feedback. I was blown away when I discovered this album, and particularly this song.

I'm no guitar pro, but hope to tab all of Chuck's missing songs.

Let me know if there's any one in particular that you'd like to see.

Again, thanks for the rating and feedback.
