Intro:
D Dsus2 Am  Em  D

D
Pictures of the farm before us
Am
Old men in a gospel chorus
Em
Sepia and saddle horses
D
Easy on the reins

D
Eighty-one, a motor-inn
Am
Your momma's seventeen again
      Em
She's squinting at at the dusty wind
D
The anger of the plains

D Dm Dsus2 Dm G  Am(5)  G   C   D Dsus2 D

D
You and i were almost nothing
Am
Pray to God the gods were bluffing 
Em                             D
Seventeen ain't old enough to reason with the pain
D                              Am
How could we expect the two to stay in love,
                      Em
When neither knew the meaning of
                       D
The difference between sacred and profane?

C9                  G
I was riding on my mother's hip
                         D    Dsus4 D Dsus2 D 
She was shorter than the corn
C9                  G
And all the years I took from her
              A      C9
Just by being born

D Dm Dsus2 Dm G  Am(5)  G   C   D Dsus2 D
D Dm Dsus2 Dm G  Am(5)  G   C   D Dsus2 D

D
I didn't mean to break the cycle
Am
At seventeen, I went by Michael 
Em                          D
No one ever called me by my own name anyway
D
Five full generations living
Am                            Em
All these expectations giving way to one
                   D
So late to have a baby on the way

C9                      G
You were riding on your mother's hip
                         D    Dsus4 D Dsus2 D
She was shorter than the corn
C9                     G
And all the years you took from her
              A   C9
Just by being born

Outro:
D Am Em D (repeat)
