[Intro]
E A E A E A E A

[Verse 1]
    E
The wind blows hard across the Texas plains

Makes some people go insane
      Dbm            A        E
While others quietly pray for rain
A            E       B
That's where we came from

E
Two boys playin' in the burnin' sun

One with books, one with guns
Dbm         A            E
Mama calls, but just one comes
    A              E
The other one runs

[Chorus]
       Dbm       A        B         E
In the christian sense of wrong and right
        A        E         B         E     
We were born and raised in black and white
    Dbm        A         B          E
One learned to pray, one learned to fight
        A        E             B         E     A
We were born and raised in the black and white
                 E         B         E      A
We were born and raised in black and white

[Verse 2]
E
Brother took to the gospel road

Spent his whole life savin' souls
        Dbm               A         E
When he looked at me, his blood ran cold
   A               B
He didn't even try

  E
I had no dreams, I had no plans

But a gun felt good in my right hand
    Dbm                         A           E
The warden asked, "How come you killed that man"
           A                E
I said, "I don't know why"

[Chorus]
Dbm      A               B       E
"Welcome home," said the hot moonlight
        A        E         B         E
We were born and raised in black and white
    Dbm      A         B         E
One lives to pray, one prays for life
        A        E         B         E
We were born and raised in black and white
        A        E         B         E
We were born and raised in black and white

[Instrumental]
D A D A E B E 
D A D A B

[Verse 3]
E
Someone handed me a cigarette

They offered me my last request
  Dbm             A       E
I asked my mortal soul be blessed
   A       E        B
By someone close to me

E
He came to me with trembling hands

He swore he'd never understand
  Dbm                   A        E
I said, "It's just what life had planned"
     A       E
It's destiny

[Chorus]
      Dbm        A        B    E
Don't waste your tears on me tonight
        A        E         B         E
We were born and raised in black and white
  Dbm       A         B          E
I chose the dark, you chased the light
        A        E         B         E
We were born and raised in black and white
        A        E         B         E
We were born and raised in black and white

[Verse 4]
E
Wind blows hard across the Texas plains

Makes some people go insane
      Dbm            A        E   
While others quietly pray for rain

[Outro]
