Dixieland

Steve Earle

 DG
 I am Kilrain and I'm a fightin' man and I come from County Clare
 DBm
And the Brits would hang me for a Fenian so I took me leave of there
 DG
And I crossed the ocean in the "Arrianne", the vilest tub afloat
 DBm
And the captain's brother was a railroad man and he met us at the boat
 AGA
So I joined up with the 20th Maine like I said my friend I'm a fighting man
 DEmF#mG
And we're marchin' south in the pouring rain
 AD
We're all goin' down to Dixieland

 DG
 I am Kilrain of the 20th Maine and we fight for Chamberlain
 DBm
'Cause he stood right with us when the Johnnies came like a banshee on the wind
 DG
In the smoke smeared hell of Gettysburg many a mother wept
 DBm
For many a good boy died there, sure, and the air smelt just like death
 AGA
I am the Kilrain of the 20th Maine and I marched to hell and back again
 DEmF#mG
For Colonel Joshua Chamberlain -
 AG
we're all goin' down to Dixieland

 DG
am the Kilrain of the 20th Maine and I damn all gentlemen
 DBm
Whose only worth is their father's name and the sweat of a workin' man
 DG
Well we come from the farms and the city streets and a hundred foreign lands
 DBm
And we spilled our blood in the battle's heat Now we're all Americans
 AGA
I am the Kilrain of the 20th Maine did I tell you friend I'm a fightin' man
 DEmF#mG
And I'll not be back this way again,
 AG
'cause we're all goin' down to Dixieland
