 D                  G/D            F#m7
From this day on, I own my father's gun.
 Bm               Bm/A              G
I dug his shallow grave beneath the sun.
A                 F#/A#    Bm           D/A      G
I lay his broken body down beneath the southern land.
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 color 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                      C
From this day on, until I die, I'll wear my father's gun.

F#           Bm             Amsus              G 
I'd like to know where the riverboat sails tonight.
F#7          Bm         Amsus               G
To New Orleans, well, that's just fine, alright.
                 E                     A          F#/A#   F#   Bm  Am
Cause there's fighting there and the company needs men,
G                      A                  C/D
So slip us a rope and sail on around 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.



F#           Bm             Amsus              G 
I'd like to know where the riverboat sails tonight.
F#7          Bm         Amsus               G
To New Orleans, well, that's just fine, alright.
                 E                     A          F#/A#   F#   Bm  Am
Cause there's fighting there and the company needs men,
G                      A                  C/D
So slip us a rope and sail on around the bend.
