Key of D

Throughout the song, play the two bass notes of the chords Bm, D, and 
G during the verses.  Use the bar chords for these.  In the chorus it 
opens up and then I don't use the bar chords.

Intro:  Bm, D, Bm, D

   Bm                     D
I dreamed I was dying in Texas
   Bm                   D
I closed my eyes and I signed
       Bm                      D
Like a black and white movie I saw my days
G                     Bm
Playing out before my eyes
      D                       Bm
I was crippled by a life of injustice
      D                             Bm
I was bent from walking through the wind
         D                 Bm
I plead guilty on a day of judgement
          G                 A
God just shook my hand and grinned

             D    A   G
And he said, come on in,
    D        Bm        A        G
You did the best that you could do
           Bm           A         G
There's a little bit of right in every wrong
           D            A     G
There's a little bit of me in you

Bm                        D
Sister I know that you're weary
            Bm                     D
You've been slaving in the sun all day
     Bm                  D
The burn of life in your belly
G                       Bm
Sorrow in your heart of clay
     D                     Bm
Your husband was a man of passion
        D                   Bm
Passion stole your husband away
         D                        Bm
And your son gave a life for your freedom
         G                      A
But you feel like a prisoner anyway.   Sister....

chorus, then Bm, D, Bm, D

  Bm                   D
I left my home and my family
         Bm                       D
With my shoes in the dust of this land
  Bm                 D
I found a job and a woman
     G                     Bm
But nothing went the way I planned
      D                        Bm
I was ambushed by my own good intentions
     D                 Bm
Used up every dollar I earned
          D                      Bm
So I went back to the home of my father
                D                  Bm
And said, "your American son has returned"
           G                  A
"Dad, your American son has returned"  ... and he said
