Christmas In Washington  Steve Earle

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

instrumental

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

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