A5  Ab5  F#5  Ab5  E


Verse
E                                C#m
This is what life is like on the ground
A
I had a brother who was stationed up in northern hill county, 
E                       B5
no he never really came home
E                                         C#m
We drove out east to red river to see the high water flow
      A
That river was running just searching for an ocean
     E                  B5
The freedom he'd never known
       C#m
That feeling you get when the wind is blowing like
        A    
your whole life is starting over
              E                         B5
We made our peace there in the no mans land
             A5
where we come from

Chorus
         E
Ive been searching for
                C#m
The waves that carried us home
        A
To the ocean we all came from
          E         B5
Where we wont be returned
          E
Ive been searching for
                C#m
The waves that carried us home
        A
To the ocean we all came from
          E         B5
Where we wont be dissolved
      A
into one

Verse
E                                       C#m
Like a simple animal running on broken legs that night
     A                                          E
His voice was splintering rising, falling to a fate 
                 B5
he'll never get out
E                                       C#m
A                                     
Black levis jacket knocking them beers back on the 
E             B5
bank of that river
C#m                            A
Underneath September skies in south US border
              E
he made his peace there 
                B5
just after his boots 
                A
filled up with water


Chorus
         E
Ive been searching for
                C#m
The waves that carried us home
        A
To the ocean we all came from
          E         B5
Where we wont be returned
          E
Ive been searching for
                C#m
The waves that carried us home
        A
To the ocean we all came from
          E         B5
Where we wont be dissolved

E
Waves will wash away 
      C#m
the misguided vision
A
Glory in a battlefield 
        E        B5
of a thousand corpses
          E
Ive been searching for
                C#m
The waves that carried us home
        A
To the ocean we all came from
          E         B5
Where we wont be dissolved

A      Ab5     F#5   Ab5     E
Out of the rain
