Intro
G       G/B                C
Standing by your window in pain, 
G  G/B           C
a pistol in your hand
G    G/B            C   
and i beg you, dear molly, girl,
D
Try and understand your man the best you can.


Chorus
G                A7
Across the great divide
     C                  Em        G
just grab your hat, and take that ride
G              A7
Get yourself a bride
    C                   Em           G 
and bring your children down to the river side.


Verse
G                  C
I had a goal in my younger days,
G                 C
I nearly wrote my will
G                C
But I changed my mind for the better, 
D
I'm at the still, had my fill and I'm fit to kill


Chorus
Across the great divide, 
just grab your hat, and take that ride
Get yourself a bride, 
and bring your children down to the river side.


Verse
Pinball machine, and a queen, 
i nearly took a bust
Tried to keep my hands to myself, 
ya say it's a must, but who can ya trust?


Verse
Harvest moon shining down from the sky, 
a weary sign for all
I'm gonna leave this one horse town, 
had to stall till the fall, now I'm gonna crawl


Intrumental
G                A7       C     Em     G
Across the great divide


Verse
Now molly dear, don't ya shed a tear
Your time will surely come, 
you'll feed your man chicken every Sunday 
Now tell me, hon, whatcha done with the gun?


Chorus
Across the great divide, 
just grab your hat, and take that ride
Get yourself a bride, 
and bring your children down to the river side.


Outro
G-A7-C-Em-G

End on G
