Christmas In Washington

Steve Earle

 Eb
 It's  Christmas time in Washington
 Ab
The  Democrats rehearsed
 Bb
 Getting into gear for four more years
 AbEb
 Things not getting worse
 Eb
 Republicans drink whiskey neat
 Ab
And   thank their lucky stars
 Bb
Said he cannot seek another term
 AbEb
They'll be no more FDRs
 Eb
 I sat home in Tennessee
 Ab
Just Staring at the screen
 Bb
An un-easy feeling in my chest
 AbEb
And I'm wondering what it means
 Eb
So come back Woody Guthrie
 Ab
 Come back to us now
 Bb
 Tear your eyes from paradise
 AbEb
And  rise again some how
 Eb
If  you run into Jesus
 Ab
Maybe he can help you  out
 BbAbBbEb
 Come back Woody Guthrie to us  now

instrumental

 Eb
 I Followed in your footsteps once
 Ab
Back in my travel days
 Bb
 Somewhere I failed to find your trail
 AbEb
Now I'm stumblin' through the haze

But there's killers on the highway
 Ab
And man can't get around
 Bb
So I sold my soul for wheels that roll
 AbEb
And I'm stuck here in this town
 Eb
So come back Woody Guthrie
 Ab
 Come back to us now
 Bb
 tear your eyes from paradise
 AbEb
And  rise again some how
 Eb
If  you run into Jesus
 Ab
Maybe he can help us  out
 BbAbBbEb
 Come back Woody Guthrie to us  now
 Eb
 There's foxes in the hen house
 Ab
 Cows out in the corn
 Bb
The Unions have been busted
 AbEb
The proud red banners torn
 Eb
 To you listen to the radio
 Ab
You'd think it all was real
 Bb
But you and me and Cisco know
 AbBbEb
It's going straight to hell
 Eb
 So come back Emma Goldman
 Ab
 Rise up old Joe Hill
 Bb
The barracades are going up
 AbEb
They cannot break our will
 Eb
 Come back to us Malcolm X
 Ab
And Martin Luther King
 Bb
 We're marching into Selma
 AbBbEb
As the bells of freedom ring
 Eb
So come back Woody Guthrie
 Ab
 Come back to us now
 Bb
 Ttear your eyes from paradise
 AbBbEb
And  rise again some how
