Powderfinger  Cowboy Junkies






 


 INTRO: G C G


 


 VERSE:


 


 [(G)]Look out, Mama, there's a wh[(C)]ite boat coming down the rive[(G)]r[(C)] [(G)]


 With a [(C)]big red beacon and a flag and a man on the ra[(G)]il[(C)] [(G)]


 I think you'd [(C)]better call John 'cause it don't look like they're here


 To [(Bm)]deliver the ma[(C)]il


 And it's [(Bm7)]less than a mile aw[(Cmaj7)]ay I hope[(Bm7)] they didn't come to stay[(Cmaj7)]


 It's got [(Bm7)]numbers on the side and a g[(Cmaj7)]un,


 And it's making [(D)]big w[(Dsus)]aves.[(D)] [(Dsus)] [(D)] [(Dsus)] [(D)] [(C)] [(G)] [(C)] [(G)] [(C)] [(G)]


 


 VERSE:


 


 [(G)]Daddy's gone, my br[(C)]other's out hunting in the moun[(G)]tains[(C)] [(G)]


 Big [(C)]John's been drinking since the river took Emmy Lo[(G)]u[(C)] [(G)]


 So the [(C)]powers that be left me here to do all the th[(Bm)]inking[(C)]


 And I [(Bm7)]just turned twenty-[(Cmaj7)]two I was wond[(Bm7)]ering what to do[(Cmaj7)]


 And the [(Bm7)]closer they ca[(Cmaj7)]me


 The more those feelings [(D)]grew[(Dsus)] [(D)] [(Dsus)] [(D)] [(Dsus)] [(D)] [(C)] [(G)] [(C)] [(G)] [(C)] [(G)]


 


 VERSE:


 


 [(G)]Daddy's rifle in my ha[(C)]nds felt reassuri[(G)]ng[(C)] [(G)]


 He told me, [(C)]red means run son, numbers add up to no[(G)]thing[(C)] [(G)]


 But when that [(C)]first shot hit the dock, I saw it co[(Bm)]ming[(C)]


 Raised the [(Bm7)]rifle to my ey[(Cmaj7)]e. Never stop[(Bm7)]ped to wonder why[(Cmaj7)]


 Then [(Bm7)]I saw black and my face [(Cmaj7)]flash in the sky[(D)] [(Dsus)] [(D)] [(Dsus)] [(D)] [(Dsus)] [(D)] [(C)] [(G)] [(C)] [(G)] [(C)] [(G)]


 


 BREAK: (VERSE CHORDS)


 


 VERSE: ( same chords) End on (G)


 


 Shelter me from the powder and the finger


 Cover me with the thought that pulled the trigger


 Just think of me as one you never figured


 To fade away so young, with so much left undone


 Remember me to my love. I know I'll miss her
