Tom Russell - East Of Woodstock, West Of Viet Nam


CAPO: 4th Fret



[Intro]
C   G F C   G F C   G F

[Verse 1]
   C
"I slept through the Nineteen Sixties"
        F
I heard Dory Previn say
    C
But me, I caught me the great white bird
                     G
To the shores of Africay
        C
Where I lost my adolescent heart
       F
To the sound of a talking drum
      C                  G           C     G F
Yeah, east of Woodstock, west of Vietnam


[Verse 2]
           C
And on the roads outside Oshogbo
        F
Lord, I fell down on my knees
           C
There were female spirits in old mud huts
                             G
Iron bells ringing up in the trees
       C
And an eighty-year-old white priestess
         F
She made juju all night long
      C                  G           C     G F
Yeah, east of Woodstock, west of Vietnam


[Chorus]
               F
Raise high the roof beams, carpenter boy
            C
Yeah, we’re coming through the rye

In the cinema I saw the man on the moon
                    G
I laughed so hard I cried
       C
It was somewhere in those rainy seasons
       F
That I learned to carve my song
      C                  G           C    G F C   G F C   G F
Yeah, east of Woodstock, west of Vietnam


[Verse 3]
   C
Oh Africa, Mother Africa
        F
You lay heavy on my breast
        C
You old cradle of civilization
                            G
Heart of darkness blood and death
          C
Though we had to play you, running scared
         F
When the crocodile ate the sun
      C                  G           C 
Yeah, east of Woodstock, west of Vietnam


[Verse 4]
   
Well, I think it’s going to rain tonight
      F
I can smell it coming off the sage
     C
As I sit here reading old Graham Greene
                        G
I taste Africa on every page
           C
And then I close my eyes and see those red clay roads
     F
It’s sundown, and boys, I’m gone
      C                  G           C
Yeah, east of Woodstock, west of Vietnam


[Chorus]
               F
Raise high the roof beams, carpenter boy
            C
Yeah, we’re coming through the rye

It was a moveable feast of war and memory
                G
A dark old lullaby
           C
It was the smoke of a thousand camp fires
           F
It was the wrong end of a gun
      C                  G           C      F
Yeah, east of Woodstock, west of Vietnam, yeah
      C                  G           C    G F C   G F C   G F C
Yeah, east of Woodstock, west of Vietnam
