Steve Fishell     steel guitar
Don Johnson       piano
Mike Bowden       bass
Steve Turner      drums


C#                        F#       C#
Last night I dreamed that I was a child
C#                                Ab
Out Where the pines grow wild and tall
      C#        F#                          C#
I was trying to make it home through the forest
              Ab    C#
Before the darkness falls
C#                        F#           C#
I heard the wind rustling through the trees
C#                               Ab
And ghostly voices rose from the fields
                    C#       F#               C#
I ran with my heart pounding down that broken path
C#             Ab             C#
With the devil snappin' at my heels
                                F#          C#
I broke through the trees, and there in the night
C#                                       Ab
My father's house stood shining hard and bright
                 C#       F#                               C#
The branches and brambles tore my clothes and scratched my arms
                       Ab             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
                                                 Ab
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,
             Ab                    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
                                       Ab
Came and spoke to me through a chained door
              C#         F#           C#
I told her my story, and who I'd come for
                                           Ab                  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#                                        Ab
it stands like a beacon calling me in the night
            C#          F#        C#
Calling and calling, so cold and alone
                                               Ab            C#
Shining `cross this dark highway where all our sins lie unatoned
