Family Ties  Russell Lawson


[D]Once m[G]ore [D]I [C]go turning d[G]own an u[C]nfamiliar [Em]road
[D]in [G]time [D]could [C]find
a desti[G]nation called [C]peace of[Em] mind
[C]slow and [Am]dark my journey's [G]been[D]  [G]
[C]seeking [Am]light my travel's [D]end

(but) the [Bm]bloom's off the Southern [Em]Rose
the [Bm]Gentleman's wearing [C]funeral clothes
[Am]o, my family [Em]ties tears in my [D]eyes
[D]midnight [G]moon, [D]twilight [C]star, another [G]daybreak's [C]come down [Em]hard
[D]might get [G]lucky, [D]might cash it [C]in
[C]betting [G]on the things that [C]might have [Em]been
and the [C]echoes are a [Am]cold and bitter [G]wind[D] [G]
blowing '[C]cross an old and [Am]quiet confederate [D]line
(but) the [Bm]bloom's off the Southern [Em]Rose
the [Bm]Gentleman's wearing [C]funeral clothes
[Am]o, my family [Em]ties
[Em]tears in my [D]eyes
Em D Em Bm C G D repeat

[D]I [G]dream of [D]sun[C]beams that look [G]beyond the future's [C]foggy [Em]screen
[D]second [G]guessed, [D]and [C]confessed,
[C]life could be [G]different if we [C]saw the [Em]rest
[C]rivers run [Am]deep 'til they reach  the [G]sea[D] [G]
[C]time's the [Am]tide that pulls at [D]me

(but) the [Bm]bloom's off the Southern [Em]Rose
the [Bm]Gentleman's wearing [C]funeral clothes
[Am]o, my family [Em]ties
[Em]tears in my [D]eyes  
(repeat)
