                [Intro]
A F#m E
A F#m E

[Verse]
    F#m
I remember that summer
      D
I was ten years old
         A              E
When our days ceased to shine
        F#m
No, you could not take a breath
           D
When those black blizzards came
          A                    E
Strippin' land in dire need of rain

[Verse]
          F#m
There was dirt on the floor
        D
As mama swept all day long
        A                                E
Leavin' trails of tears and mud down her face
          F#m
There was dirt in our beds
              D
And there was dirt in our clothes
              A                          E
And there was dirt in the little that we ate

[Verse]
       F#m
We had heard about the market's fall
  D
A couple years before
        A                                 E
But the fields and the harvest all seemed fine
    F#m
Sometimes the things that kill us
D
That which we don't know
     A                                E
That strip the land of everything but pride

[Chorus]
A
Stay close together
F#m                       E  E  E  E
That's all we knew to get by
    A
I recall a helpless feelin'
F#m                  E
First time that I sa-aw my father cry
D                             A
Looking back on everything we had
                     E  E  E  E
And on everything we lost
A                    F#m
Still makes me wonder
                       E  E  E  E
Was staying wo-rth the cost

[Verse]
         F#m
A lot of town folk up and left
             D
They boarded up the schools and banks
        A
And the churches
                     E
And that, to me, was wrong
          F#m
Come next year, it would be better
        D
For the last one standing tall
        A                           E
For the ones - that showed the most resolve

[Verse]
      F#m
They announced the New Deal
               D
With the Conservation Act and then
    A                            E
The Relief Fund - we were on our knees
          F#m
There was little hope by then
           D
So we just stood there in that line
       A                                      E
And we thanked the man for that little bit of cheese

[Chorus]
A
Stay close together
F#m                       E  E  E  E
That's all we knew to get by
    A
I recall a helpless feelin'
F#m                  E
First time that I sa-aw my father cry
D                             A
Looking back on everything we had
                     E  E  E  E
And on everything we lost
A                    F#m
Still makes me wonder
                       E  E  E  E
Was staying wo-rth the cost

[Outro]
