VERSE:
                     D
Well, last night I dreamed that 
G           D
  I was a child

               D
Out where the pines grow 
          A
Wild and tall

       D
I was trying to 
G                           D
  Make it home through the forest

            D   A          D
Before the dar-ar-arkness falls


VERSE:
    D
I heard the wind rustling 
G               D
  Through the trees

      D
And ghostly voices 
                A
Rose from the fields

                      D
I ran with my heart pounding 
 G                D
Down that broken path

          D     A
With the dev-il-il 
        D
At my heels


VERSE:
                      D
I broke through the trees, and 
G               D
  There in the night

             D
My father's house stood 
                   A
Shining hard and bright

                   D
The branches and brambles 
          G                       D
Tore my clothes and scratched my arms
 
              D
I ran till I fell, 
  A             D
Shaking in his arms 


INSTRUMENTAL:

VERSE:
               D
I awoke and I imagined 
           G                     D
The hard things that pulled us apart

              D
Would never again, sir, 
                            A
Tear us from each other's hearts

         D
I got dressed, 
              G          D
And to that house I did ride

                 D
From out on the road, 
                 A                  D
I could see its windows shining in light


VERSE:
                  D
I walked up the steps and 
G               D
I stood on the porch

                  D
A woman I didn't recognize 
                                        A
Came and spoke to me through a chained door

                D
I told her my story, 
 G                D
And who I'd come for
 
                      D
She said "I'm sorry, son, 
                    A                  D
But no one by that name lives here anymore"


VERSE:
                 D
Now my father's house shines 
 G        D
Hard and bright

                  D
It stands like a beacon 
                   A
Calling me in the night

             D
Calling and calling, 
G               D
  So cold and alone

                          D
Shining `cross this dark highway 
           A
Where our sins 
        D
Lie unatoned
