*The Em chords are typically hammered on, necessitating the drop D tuning, although 
the song can easily be modified to play in standard tuning, which Jason tends to do.
 
[Intro]

D Dsus2 Am  Em  D


[Verses]
D
Pictures of the farm before us
Am
Old men in a gospel chorus
Em
Sepia and saddle horses
D
Easy on the reins

D
Eighty-one, a motor-inn
Am
Your momma's seventeen again
      Em
She's squinting at at the dusty wind
D
The anger of the plains

D Dm9 Csus2 G   Am(5)  G   C  D

D
You and I were almost nothing
Am
Pray to God the gods were bluffing 
Em                             D
Seventeen ain't old enough to reason with the pain
D                              Am
How could we expect the two to stay in love,
                      Em
When neither knew the meaning of
                       D
The difference between sacred and profane?

Cadd9               G
I was riding on my mother's hip
                         D    Dsus4 D Dsus2 D 
She was shorter than the corn
Cadd9               G
And all the years I took from her
              Asus4    Cadd9
Just by being born

D Dm9 Csus2 G   Am(5)  G   C  D
D Dm9 Csus2 G   Am(5)  G   C  D

D
I didn't mean to break the cycle
Am
At seventeen, I went by Michael 
Em                          D
No one ever called me by my own name anyway
D
Five full generations living
Am                            Em
All these expectations giving way to one
                   D
So late to have a baby on the way

Cadd9                    G
You were riding on your mother's hip
                         D    Dsus4 D Dsus2 D
She was shorter than the corn
Cadd9                  G
And all the years you took from her
              Asus4   Cadd9
Just by being born


[Outro]

D Am Em D (repeat)
