Southern Man  Neil Young

So[Am]uthern man better k[Cmaj7]eep your head
Do[F]n't forget what you're g[D7]ood book said
So[Am]uthern change gonnna c[Cmaj7]ome at last
F D7 Am (riff) F Dm
Now your crosses are burning fast, Southern man

[Am]I saw cotton and [F]I saw b[Dm]lack
Tall white mansions and little shacks
Southern Man when will you pay them back?
[E]I heard screa[E/F#/E]min', and bullwhips crack[E/F#/E]ing
[E]How long, how lo[E/F#/E]ng,  How long, how long, [Am]ah     [F]    [Dm]

Lillie Bell your hair is golden brown
I see your black man coming round
Swear by God I'm gonna cut him down
I heard screamin', and bullwhips cracking
How long, how long, How long, how long, ah
