[Verse]
G                   C            G             G               C 
Fire and brimstone fell upon my ears as their throats of open graves recited 
G
fear
           Em         C                  G            D               C
Like the bullets of a gun they drove my tears and my feet to run the hell 
        G
out of here
     G             C                G              G      
See, I was born a restless wayward child, I could hear the whole world 
 C          G
calling me outside
        Em           C           G        C             D               C
Of the masses I routinely sat behind and Lord, I had to see with my own eyes
 G               Em     D                           Em             C     G
Take me home, I want to go down the road that will take me to the living oak
     G                      Em         D                        G
And Lord, I know that I'm a weathered stone but I owe it to my brothers to 
C           G 
carry them home

[Instrumental]
C G D C G

(pick G chord)

[Verse]
 G               Em     D                           Em             C     G
Take me home, I want to go down the road that will take me to the living oak
     G                      Em         D                        G
And Lord, I know that I'm a weathered stone but I owe it to my brothers to 
C           G 
carry them home
 G              Em      D                          Em             C      G 
Take me home, I want to go down the road that will take me to the living oak
     G                  Em     D                       G
And Lord, I know it's a heavy load but we'll carry my brothers, oh we'll 
C           G
carry them home

[Outro]
    G               C                   G              G               C
And oh, there is no power on Earth or below that could ever break our hearts 
              G
or shake our souls
             Em                 C          G   C        D                C
And when you lay me down you'll only bury bones 'cause oh, my heart and soul 
           G
are going home

This is great! Can anyone write out the strumming pattern for me though? I'm not sure I have it 100% right...

I know this isn't the right way to play this song but, try playing with DDU UDU Strum and tuning your guitar down a whole step, playing it open. I hope you enjoy
