[Em]I heard you sing a rebel song,[G] [D] [Dsus]
[Em]sung it loud and all alone.[G] [D] [Dsus]
[Em]We can’t afford the things you[G] save[D],[Dsus]
[Em]we can’t afford the warranty.[G] [D] [Dsus]
[Em]I see you walking[G] in the glare
[D]down the county r[C/G]oad we share.
[Em]Our southern bloo[G]d, my heresy,
[D]damn that ol’ con[C/G]federacy.
[G]It took a [D]long [Dsus]time to
[Am7]become the thing [C]I am [D]to you.
[G]And you won’t [D]tear i[Dsus]t apart
[Am7]without a fight, [C]witho[D]ut a heart.
[Em]I’m sorry for what you have le[G]arned[D],[Dsus]
[Em]when you feel the tables turn.[G] [D] [Dsus]
[Em]To run so hard in your race,[G] [D] [Dsus]
[Em]now you find who set the pace.[G] [D] [Dsus]
[Em]The landed aris[G]tocracy
[D]exploiting all your [C/G]enmity.
[Em]All your daddies [G]fought in vain,
[D]leave you with the [C/G]mark of Cain.
[G]It took a [D]long [Dsus]time to
[Am7]become the thing [C]I am [D]to you.
[G]And you won’t [D]tear i[Dsus]t apart
[Am7]without a fight, [C]witho[D]ut a heart.
[G]It took a [D]long [Dsus]time to
[Am7]become you, [C]become [D]you.
[Em]The center holds, so they say.[G] [D] [Dsus]
[Em]It never held too well for me.[G] [D] [Dsus]
[Em]I won’t stop short for common [G]groun[D]d[Dsus]
[Em]that vilifies the trodden down[G].[D] [Dsus]
[Em]The center held the [G]bonded slave
[D]for the sake of indu[C/G]stry.
[Em]The center held the [G]bloody hand
[D]of the exe[C/G]cutioner man.
[G]It took a [D]long [Dsus]time to
[Am7]become the thing [C]I am [D]to you.
[G]And you won’t [D]tear i[Dsus]t apart
[Am7]without a fight, [C]witho[D]ut a heart.
[G]It took a [D]long [Dsus]time to
[Am7]become you, [C]become [D]you.
