On Wounded Knee - Wrinkle Neck Mules

Track 3 - Apprentice to Ghosts (2012)
---------------------------------------
Standard Tuning; power chords (5ths)

[Intro]
E5
(distorted guitar noise)


[VERSE]
E5                 G5 
Back of the napkin scratch out
    D5               A5
The words that I’ve learned
     E5                   G5
But they don’t come, just cracks and hums
     D5                A5 
Like nothing I’ve ever heard
E5                  G5 
No place to stay no fire or rain
    D5          A5
No number or ratio
    E5             G5        A5  
No gauge to give a warning sign
    E5             D5        A5  
No gauge to give a warning sign


[VERSE]
E5              G5 
I guess we all should have known
         D5             A5
What the downside might be
      E5                   G5
As we swore and prayed and stood and gazed
        D5             A5 
At some beast we never did see
       E5                G5
Coming winter’s chill in Charlottesville
        D5          A5
With no leg to stand on
   E5                G5        A5  
That’s about where I draw the line
      E5                   D5        A5  
Yeah, that’s about where I draw the line


[CHORUS]
D5                  A5
Scrape off the time elapse
D5          A5
Push myself right up to the collapse
         B5               D5             A5
Will you know me when I’m down on wounded knee?
         E5               D5             A5
Will you know me when I’m down on wounded knee?


[VERSE]
         E5                 G5
Well the blood ran down and covered up
D5                 A5
Everyone I’ve ever known
     E5                 G5     
With mangled hands and best laid plans
   D5         A5
My my haven’t we grown
E5                        G5
Back to the mirrors where we can’t hear
    D5                  A5
The screams and shouts below
        E5                 G5        A5
Well, I tell you boys it’s about time
E5              D5        A5
Yeah boys it’s about that time


[CHORUS II]
D5                  A5
Scrape off the time elapse
D5            A5
Bend and run, under the wires and traps
         B5               D5             A5
Will you know me when I’m down on wounded knee?
         E5               D5             A5
Will you know me when I’m down on wounded knee?


[SOLO]
E5 G5 D5 A5 x3
E5 G5 A5
E5 D5 A5 E5


[BRIDGE]
E5                           D5
There are high towers and deep wells
E5                              G5       D5
There are strokes and heart attacks and spells
         B5               D5              A5
Will you know me when I’m down on wounded knee?
         E5               D5              A5
Will you know me when I’m down on wounded knee?


[CHORUS III]
D5                  A5
Scrape off the time elapse
D5                      A5
Take the good, and the rest we'll sell for scrap
         B5               D5             A5 G5 A5
Will you know me when I’m down on wounded knee?
         E5               D5     A5 G5 A5
Will you know me when I’m down         
               E5 G5 E5
On wounded knee           x3

          E5 G5 E5  E5 G5 E5  E5 G5 E5
On wounded.......             knee

E5 G5 E5 x4
