Trail of Tears  Guadalcanal Diary

The sun hangs [Em]low in the [D]western [G]sky
I [D]bow my [Em]head and re[G]member [D]now
[Am]Someone's l[Em]ips pressed c[D]lose to [G]mine
He[D]r cool [Em]hand up[G]on my [D]brow
[Am]Hell burns [Em]hot for a [D]killer's [G]heart
A[D] shallow [Em]grave in an [G]unmarked [D]lot
Cr[Am]ack of g[Em]un; fire in[D] the [G]dark
D C D*
hand in hand we'll walk at day break
Em Cmaj7 D*

Em Cmaj7 D* Em Cmaj7 D*
One wore black, One wore black
Em Cmaj7 D* Em Em C G D
One wore black
The trail of [Em]tears is [D]winding [G]on
M[D]any [Em]pass a[G]long the [D]road
D[Am]usty s[Em]oldiers m[D]arch [G]along
as they [D]file one by [C]one
[Em] [D] [Em] [D]  
[Em] [D] [Em] [D]  

The trail of [Em]tears is [D]winding[G] home
[D]Frightened [Em]soldier [G]unknown [D]war
[Am]On and o[Em]n with l[D]overs [G]gone
[D]No one [Em]passes[G] on the r[D]oad
(slower, single strum per chord)
Em(VII) G(x 10 9 7 8 7)
Two girls wait by the railroad track
for their soldiers to come back
Em(VII) G(x 10 9 7 8 7)
knowing this will be their last
(gaining intensity)
Bm(x2x430) Dsus2/A Em D*
one wore blue, and one wore black
(repeat and fade)
Em Cmaj7 D* Em Cmaj7 D*
One wore black, One wore black...
