Take 'em Away by Old Crow Medicine Show

Pretty straight forward, this one- 3 chords, with some subtle picking variations
once you nail it. Be sure to use a Texan accent!

CHORUS:

D                    G
Take 'em away, take 'em away Lord!
D                            A
Take away these chains from me!
D                                      G
My heart is broken 'cos my spirit's not free,
D                                    A
Lord, take away these chains from me!

Verse 1:

D                                              G
Some birds' feathers are too bright to be caged
D                                                      A
I know I'm not that colourful, but a bird just the same
D                                               G
Open up your gate now, let me put down my load
D                                           A
So I can feel at ease and go back to my home.
