My Pledge  Neil Young

[Intro] 
[G] [F] [C] [G] [F] [C] [G] [F] [C] [G]  
[Verse 1] 
If it pl[G]ease the court I've had a l[F]ot to say
And it's n[C]ot always been true[G]
St[G]anding here before you, j[F]udge
I make m[C]y pledge of truth to y[G]ou
[Verse 2] 
The w[G]aves came over the b[F]owsprit
The decks aw[C]ash with running green and f[G]oam
B[G]ack there at the wheel I was t[F]errified
Next d[C]ay we first saw home[G]
[Verse 3] 
My r[G]elatives came over on the M[F]ayflower
L[C]anded on the shore almost[G] alone
N[G]o that damn traffic tod[F]ay is terrible
And everywh[C]ere I look I see people al[G]one
[Verse 4] 
Al[G]one with their heads looking[F] in their hands
L[C]ost in the conversation s[G]tare
W[G]alking with their eyes looking [F]at the screen
Talking[C] like they were really there[G]
[Instrumental] 
[G] [F] [C] [G]  
[Verse 5] 
I'm l[G]ost in this new generation[F]
Left me beh[C]ind it seems[G]
L[G]istening to the shadow of Jimi H[F]endrix
"Purple H[C]aze", sounding like TV[G]
[Verse 6] 
I st[G]epped on someone's hand l[F]aying on the street
B[C]oth asleep and dead it m[G]ay seem
He d[G]idn't even move there on the s[F]idewalk
I st[C]ood there staring in a dream[G]
[Verse 7] 
She c[G]ame along in her unif[F]orm
Stood m[C]oving me away with a gentle h[G]and
Dr[G]essed in white like a nighting[F]ale
Her name was Fl[C]orence, Florence of the L[G]and
(I kn[G]ew I'd seen her s[F]omewhere)[C] [G]
[Verse 8] 
I kn[G]ew I'd seen her somewhere[F]
But she was b[C]usy with him gone[G]
She c[G]ame with three different brothers[F]
[C]Abraham, Martin and John[G]
[Verse 9] 
I h[G]eard a song about that once[F]
And I never knew wh[C]at it meant[G]
Three st[G]ars died in a plane one n[F]ight
Rock and R[C]oll, the message that was sent[G]
[Verse 10] 
I c[G]ouldn't wrap my head around [F]it
Didn't know what it m[C]eant[G]
St[G]anding there on that sand[F]y beach
W[C]atching it turn to cement[G]
[Verse 11] 
N[G]ow I don't see all the c[F]olors
And I might m[C]iss some of their beauty[G]
But I d[G]o see what I see[F]
And I w[C]ant to do my duty[G]
[Verse 12] 
Enl[G]isted in the Navy at the c[F]orner store
They h[C]ad a recruiting booth[G]
I c[G]overed my heart and r[F]aised my hand
And sw[C]ore it was the truth[G]
[Outro] 
[G] That's my pledge[F] [C] [G]
That's my pl[G]edge[F]
[C] That's my pledge, judge[G]
[G] [F] [C]  
[G] That's my pledge
[G] [F] [C] [G]
