Indianola  Charlie Robison

My little brothe[D]r was just ten ye[G]ars old[D] [G]
[D]when we hit ba[G]d weather and[D] hid in the [G]hole
[D]we could see [G]texas w[D]as only a m[G]ile
[D] and o little br[G]other i[D] remember your [G]smile
at indianola...[D]..[C] [G] [D] [C] [G]
[D]my dad built a[G] sawmill [D]of cyprees and [G]stone
[D]it was here on [G]madena th[D]at we made our h[G]ome
[D]the year 18[G]50 and [D]i sent for my [G]girl
[D]o frauline come [G]meet me [D]in this brand new [G]world
at indianola....[D]..[C] [G] [D] [C] [G]
[D]the war they[G] call civi[D]l had barely [G]begun
[D]me and my c[G]ousins [D]decided we'd [G]run
[D]up through lo[G]uisianna t[D]o meet up wit[G]h grant
[D]but one hun[G]dred damn rebels[D] shot us there in [G]the sand
at indianola.....[D] [C] [G] [D] [C] [G]
[D]they said up in [G]new york [D]the stock market[G] fell
[D]and the life they was[G] livin [D]was shot all to[G] hell
[D]but we aint se[G]en nothin no[D] different than [G]dust
[D]sept the wheels o[G]n the wagon[D] all covered with[G] rust
at indianola..[D]...[C] [G] [D] [C] [G]
[D]and that scr*pe w[G]ith old hitl[D]er was over and[G] done
[D]and i wondered if[G] i cou[D]ld kill kin with m[G]y gun
[D]but we sat there i[G]n paris[D] in a little[G] cafe
[D]and as they toaste[G]d truma[D]n i drifted [G]away
to indianola...[D]...[C]..[G] [D] [C] [G]
[D]but its fifty yea[G]rs later[D] and nobody[G] cares
[D]about some o[G]ld city [D]that aint even[G] there
[D]well my sons moved t[G]o houston and[D] they work in the[G] gulf
[D]with seven days[G] on and [D]seven days[G] off
[D]well i work for th[G]e doctor tha[D]t bought our old r[G]anch
[D] [G] [D] [G] 
[D]and he calls me h[G]illbilly and [D]he laughs at my[G] hair
[D]but the cancer will[G] get him [D]if anythings[G] fair
[D]and i'll take his[G] ashes an[D]d throw from [G]my boat
[D]as they crossed th[G]at oce[D]an i'm going [G]to float
to find me another indianola..[D]...[C].[G] [D] [C] [G]
indianola...[D]...[C]..[G] [D] [C] [G]
indianola....[D]...[C].[G] [D] [C] [G]
