[Verse]
Cadd9           G      D                                  Cadd9
On his 18th birthday, headed south on a greyhound bus, and it's
          G                 D
The most scared he's ever been
Cadd9        G    D                                       Cadd9
His destination, an old island on the Carolina shore, but he's
            G             D
Not quite sure what to expect
Cadd9           G     D                                  Cadd9                
He ain't had it easy, most would say he's had it rough, but he
         G          D
Don't complain to anyone
Cadd9            G     D                               Cadd9
His choice was simple, coal minin' or shootin' a gun, and he
            G             D              
Hopes it's one he won't regret

[Pre Chorus]
A                            Cadd9
That greyhound bus stops on a dime
A                          Cadd9     
And he runs out to stand in line
                           Cadd9  D 
And he looks down to see 

[Chorus]
Cadd9     G       D
Yellow footprints, to teach him how to stand
Cadd9     G       D
Yellow footprints, his first steps to being a man
Cadd9     G       D                                          
Yellow footprints, where so many stood before
Cadd9    G          A                           Cadd9
Yellow footprints, are just what, he was lookin' for

Cadd9    G     Cadd9    G      Cadd9    G       D

[Verse]
Cadd9        G       D                                  Cadd9
He ain't no stranger, to workin' hard or doin' what he's told  
                   G                D
From what he can tell he's fittin' in
Cadd9      G     D                                     Cadd9       
Yes sir, No sir, is all he says, it's all they want to hear
              G                 D
And he don't give them nothin' more.

[Pre Chorus]
A                               Cadd9
Reveille sounds at a quarter to five
A                                   Cadd9
He jumps out of his bunk to stand in line
                     Cadd9    D
Just like that night

[Chorus]
Cadd9          G          D
On the Yellow footprints, to teach him how to stand
Cadd9         G   D
Yellow footprints, his first steps to being a man
Cadd9     G       D                                          
Yellow footprints, where so many stood before
Cadd9           G  A                             Cadd9
Yellow footprints, are just what, he was lookin' for

Cadd9    G     Cadd9    G      Cadd9    G       D

[Bridge]
A                       Cadd9
And 14 weeks can seem so long
A                             Cadd9
But it's always darkest before dawn
                           Cadd9    D 
And he remembers that night

[Chorus]
Cadd9          G          D
On the Yellow footprints, to teach him how to stand
Cadd9     G       D
Yellow footprints, his first steps to being a man
Cadd9     G       D                                          
Yellow footprints, where so many stood before
Cadd9    G          A                            Cadd9
Yellow footprints, are just what, he was lookin' for

Cadd9    G     Cadd9    G      Cadd9    G       D
