Dm Dsus2 Dsus4 Dsus2 Dm Dsus2

[Verse 1]
Dm                           F
I filled my saddlebags with corn 
    C              Dm
And bid my home goodbye 
I set out for the west 
          C           F      C
With the flaming sun in my eyes 
Dm            C            Dm
A sword and a bible by my side 

[Verse 2]
Dm                      F
I joined a regiment of horse 
    C               Dm 
And with them I did go 
We roared up hills and over dales 
       C                F         C
As we hunted down our frightened foe 
Dm                 C             Dm        Dsus2
And the Lord have mercy on their souls 

[Chorus 1]
Dm         C            Dm
I've seen castles torn down 
Am                    F     C
Villages alight and cattle burn 
 F                    Am            F        
I've listened to the tolling of the gun 
         Dm                 F       C
And the clash of steel as morning comes 
        Dm            C            Dm     Dsus2 Dsus4 Dsus2
And the Lord's seen all that I have done 

[Verse 3]
Dm                              F
They gave me a house in lieu of pay 
      C            Dm
With fine grazing land 
A river of silver running through 
         C             F       C 
It was a paradise that I had found 
        Dm           C               Dm     Dsus2
And the Lord led me to this chosen ground 

[Chorus 2]
   Dm                C             Dm
But when I hear the crying of a child 
Am                 F            C
I still hear the rattle of the drum 
     F               Am              F
And see the shadows hanging in the trees
   Dm                   F      C 
And a smell of burning follows me 
Dm                   C               Dm
And the Lord's seen all that I have done. 

[Chorus 3]
    Dm           C           Dm
But Jesus was always on our side 
   Am                      F          C
A sword of righteousness hung in the sky 
          F         Am              F   
We sang a hymn to make the cowards turn 
           Dm                 F       C
And then we cut them down as they did run 
   Dm           C                    Dm    Dsus2 Dsus2 Dm Dsus2 DM
And the Lord's seen all that I have done.
