Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Bastard Nation-crd  Kevin Welch

[G]She lives in  the B[Gsus]astard N[G]ation
[F]She doesn't even know [C]her n[G]ame
[G]No one there knows [Gsus]where they come [G]from
[F]Could've been Abel [C]could've been C[G]ain
[G]She was raised by [Gsus]loving [G]hands
[F]Down by the Gulf [C]Of Mexic[G]o
[G]Her savior was a [Gsus]preacher [G]man
[F]They loved her like she [C]was their [G]own
[G]But one thing they could not [Gsus]give to [G]her
[F]Though they tried with all [C]their [G]might
[G]They could not fill the [Gsus]emptine[G]ss
[F]She felt when she lay down [C]each [G]night
[G]She comes from the [Gsus]Bastard [G]Nation
[F]She don't  even k[C]now her na[G]me
[G]No one there knows [Gsus]where they come [G]from
[F]Could've been Abel [C]could've been C[G]ain
[G]All alone in the [Gsus]Bastard [G]Nation
[F]Just like all the [C]others [G]there
[G]Each one reaching out for someone
[F]Doesn't anybody [C]car[G]e
SOLO
[G]Tonight I'll put my [Gsus]child to [G]bed
[F]She'll look in her [C]father's[G] eyes
[G]Somewhere  in there  she'll [Gsus]see herse[G]lf
[F]And feel all those [C]invisible [G]ties
[G]But that girl from the [Gsus]Bastard [G]Nation
[F]She just seems to [C]drift [G]away
[G]She never knew just [Gsus]where to [G]land
[F]It's the only thing that ever [C]made her [G]pray
[G]She comes from the [Gsus]Bastard [G]Nation
[F]She doesn't even know [C]her [G]name
[G]No one there knows [Gsus]where they come f[G]rom
[F]Could've been Abel [C]could've been C[G]ain
[G]All alone in the [Gsus]Bastard [G]Nation
[F]Just like all the [C]others [G]there
[G]Each one reaching out for someone
[F]Doesn't anybody [C]car[G]e
