Under our roof is a baby girl
  Dm                          Am        C   | Dm . Am C |
I thought this world could be her's one day
        Am                Em G | Am . Em G |
But her momma knew better .  .

I'm a white man livin' in a white man's town
      Am                         Em      G   | Am . Em G |
Wanna take a shot of cocaine and burn it down
Dm                         Am        C     | Dm . Am C |
Momma wants to change that Nashville sound
            Am                  Em G | Am . Em G |
But they're never gonna let her .  .

[Chorus]
Dm                F        Em     |Am         A2 Am |
. There's no such thing as someone else's war
Dm              F        Em         Am                Em       G
. Your creature comforts aren't the only things worth fighting for
Dm                     F       Em   | Am . Em G |
. Still breathin' it's not too late
Dm                   F       Em      E
. We're all carryin' one big burden, sharin' one fate

             Am                   Em       G   | Am . Em G |
I've got the bones of the red man under my feet
    Dm                         Am     C      | Dm . Am C |
The highway runs through their burial grounds
         Am               Em G | Am . Em G |
Past the oceans of cotton .  .

[Verse 4]
      Am                     Em          G    | Am . Em G |
I'm a white man lookin' in a black man's eyes
Am                     Em         G    | Am . Em G |
Wishin' I'd never been one of the guys
       Dm                         Am          C     | Dm . Am C |
Who pretended not to hear another white man's joke
        Am                    Em G | Am . Em G |
Oh, the times ain't forgotten .  .

[Chorus]

. Your creature comforts aren't the only things worth fighting for
Dm                            F       Em   | Am . Em G |
. You're still breathin' it's not too late
Dm                   F       Em      E
. We're all carryin' one big burden, sharin' one fate

            Am                  Em       G      | Am . Em G |
I think the man upstairs must'a took a vacation
  Dm                      Am         C   | Dm . Am C |
I still have faith, but I don't know why
Am                        Em            G    | Am . Em G |
Maybe it's the fire in my little girl's eyes

Maybe it's the fire in my little girl's eyes
