MY FATHER'S GUN

   Year : 1971
  Album : Tumbleweed Connection
Writers : Elton John & Bernie Taupin

Here's my version of "My Fathers Gun" By Elton John. Its much easier to play on acoustic 
without all the flats and sharps. There may be a few chord changes missing, but overall 
sounds good. (Not in same key as album).

Standard Tuning

Intro: | E | A | E | AAsus A | 
|

     E            A  	         Gm7
From this day on I own my father's gun.
C#/Dbm                 		A
We dug his shallow grave beneath the sun.

B                     Gm7   C#/Dbm           B	A
I laid his broken body down  -  below the southern line.
D                C#/Dbm        A                  B
It wouldn't do to bury him  -  where any Yankee stands.


E            			A  	         Gm7
I'll take my horse and I'll ride the northern plain.
C#/Dbm                 		A
To wear the colour of the greys and join the fight again.
B                     Gm7   C#/Dbm           B	A
I'll not rest until I know  -  the cause is fought and won.
D                C#/Dbm        A                  E
From this day on, until I die,    I'll wear my father's gun.

CHORUS:
Gm7                          C#/Dbm        B		A
I'd like to know where the riverboat sails  to - night.
Gm7                          C#/Dbm        B		A
To New Orleans well that's just fine   al - right.
                F#                     B            Gm7    
  B
`Cause there's fighting there and the company needs men.
   A                 B               E		A	E	A
So slip us a rope and sail on round the  bend.

E            			A  	         Gm7
As soon as this is over we'll go home.
C#/Dbm                 		A
To plant the seeds of justice in our bones.
B                     Gm7   C#/Dbm           B	A
To watch the children growing  -  and see the women sewing.
D                C#/Dbm        A                  E
There'll be laughter when the bells of freedom ring.


{Repeat Chorus, Fade}
