C#                        F#       C#
Last night I dreamed that I was a child 
C#                                G#
Out Where the pines grow wild and tall
      C#        F#                          C#
I was trying to make it home through the forest 
              G#    C#
Before the darkness falls
C#                        F#           C#
I heard the wind rustling through the trees 
C#                               G#
And ghostly voices rose from the fields
                    C#       F#               C# 
I ran with my heart pounding down that broken path
C#             G#             C#
With the devil snappin' at my heels
                                F#          C#
I broke through the trees, and there in the night
C#                                       G#
My father's house stood shining hard and bright 
                 C#       F#                               C#
The branches and brambles tore my clothes and scratched my arms
                       G#             C#
But I ran till I fell, shaking in his arms

SOLO

C#                         F#                         C#
I awoke and I imagined the hard things that pulled us apart
                                                 G#
Will never again, sir, tear us from each other's hearts
      C#                   F#          C#
I got dressed, and to that house I did ride from out on the road, 
             G#                    C#
I could see his windows shining in light
                C#        F#           C#
I walked up the steps and stood on the porch
C#
A woman I didn't recognize 
                                       G#
Came and spoke to me through a chained door
              C#         F#           C#
I told her my story, and who I'd come for
                                           G#                  C#
She said "I'm sorry but but no one by that name lives here anymore

SOLO


C#                       F#       C#
My father's house shines hard and bright 
C#                                        G#
it stands like a beacon calling me in the night
            C#          F#        C# 
Calling and calling, so cold and alone
                                               G#            C#
Shining `cross this dark highway where all our sins lie unatoned


    From Emmylou Harris "Thirteen"
    Warner Brothers Records 1986
