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)
