Southeastern Son  Turnpike Troubadours

Well I guess I was [A]born with a gun in my hand
We'd walk the big [D]clearcuts in the pine timber[A]land[G] [D] [A]
Well the army man t[A]old me that I could defend the free
Aw and draw me a [D]paycheck, get a tech school de[A]gree[G] [D] [A]
I said hey now [A]sergeant, that sure does sound fine
Well the sawmill ain't [D]hiring, tell me where do I [A]sign[G] [D] [A]
[E]Won't you light a [G]lantern [D]for me
[E]I'll be gone but [D]not for [A]long
[E]Won't you keep a [G]candle [D]burnin'
[E]Won't you leave a [G]porch light [D]on
(Same chords as 1st verse, just faster)
Well my hands are still steady and they still hold a gun
And this suit of a soldier for your southestern son
Well tell mom not to worry if she's taking it hard
Never thought I'd see action back when I joined the guard
Well all this will be over more later than soon
As I wote in a letter beneath the big afghan moon
