My take on this wonderful song, recently heard on Sons of Anarchy.  The Cadd9 is
probably actually an F or a variation thereof, but I find it easier to add the
finger picking with this, and it sounds pretty true to the original.

Standard tuning, capo 7th.

[Verse 1]

G                 Cadd9    G
Mother, I tried to do right by you
               Cadd9     G
To do what you asked me to
       D           G
I did wrong and I knew.

 G                Cadd9     G
Mother I tried to behave for you
                    Cadd9     G
Now I’m a digging a grave for you
       D           G
It was all I could do.

D                                     C
Find a way back home, Make everything new
But I wish it was true.

[Verse 2]

G                 Cadd9    G
Father, well I’ll give my soul to you
                  Cadd9    G
I came in blind folded for you
       D           G
It was all that I knew.

 D                                           C
Open your arms and I’ll fly out of hell up to you
I wish it was true.


Am                       C
Boy come on out from the cold
You're lost outside there don’t you know
It’s not what you say it what's you do
Just keep wishing your wishes are true
Well your dreams they're reality now
There’s no pain there’s no misery
Just polish the blood and the bruise
For there’s just no way you can lose.
Well I wish it was true.

[Verse 3]

G                 Cadd9    G
Country, I was a soldier for you
              Cadd9    G
I did what you asked me to
       D             G
It was wrong and you knew.

G                          Cadd9    G
Country, now I’m just a stranger to you
            Cadd9    G
A number a name it’s true
           D              G
Throw me away when you’re through.

D                                                 C
Home of the brave and free the, the red white and blue
Well I wish it was true.
