[Verse 1]

E 
It's Christmastime in Washington
    A
The Democrats rehearsed
B 
Gettin' into gear for four more years
A                  E
Things not gettin' worse
E
The Republicans drink whiskey neat
    A
And thanked their lucky stars
               B
They said, 'He cannot seek another term
           A       E
They'll be no more fdrs'


E
I sat home in Tennessee
A
Staring at the screen
        B 
With an uneasy feeling in my chest
        A
And I'm wonderin' what it means


[Chorus]

   E
So come back Woody Guthrie
A
Come back to us now
B
Tear your eyes from paradise
    A              E
And rise again somehow
   E
If you run into Jesus
      A 
Maybe he can help you out
B                   A   B     E
Come back Woody Guthrie to us now


[Verse 2]

E
I followed in your footsteps once
     A
Back in my travelin' days
B 
Somewhere I failed to find your trail
        A                     E
Now I'm stumblin' through the haze

But there's killers on the highway now
      A 
And a man can't get around
     B
So I sold my soul for wheels that roll
        A                  E
Now I'm stuck here in this town


[Chorus]

   E
So come back Woody Guthrie 
A
Come back to us now
B
Tear your eyes for paradise 
    A               E
And rise again some how 
   E
If you run into Jesus 
      A
Maybe he can help,you out
B                   A   B     E
Come back Woody Guthrie to us now


[Verse 3]

E
There's foxes in the hen house
A
Cows out in the corn
    B
The unions have been busted
      A                 E
Their proud red banners torn
E
To listen to the radio
      A
You'd think that all was well
    B
But you and me and Cisco know
     A     B           E
It's going straight to hell


[Verse 4]

E 
So come back, Emma Goldman
A
Rise up, old Joe Hill
    B 
The barracades are goin' up
     A                E
They cannot break our will
E
Come back to us, Malcolm X
    A
And Martin Luther King
B
We're marching into Selma
       A        B       E
As the bells of freedom ring


[Chorus]

   E 
So come back Woody Guthrie 
A
Come back to us now
B
Tear your eyes for paradise 
    A    B          E
And rise again some how
