Intro: G and Gadd9
Out where the [G]creek turns shallow and [Gadd9]sandy
And the [G]moon comes skimmin' away the [Gadd9]stars
The [G]wind in mesquite comes [Gadd9]rushin' over the hilltops[G]
Straight into my [C]arms, straight into my [G]arms[Gadd9] [G] [Gadd9]
I'm ridin' [G]hard carryin' a catch of [Gadd9]roses
And a [G]fresh map that I [Gadd9]made
Tonight I'm gonna [G]get birth naked and [Gadd9]bury my old soul[G]
[C] [G] [Gadd9] 
[Gadd9]And dance on its grave, and dance on its grave
It's been a [Dsus2]long t[Em11]ime c[G]omin' my [C]dear
It's been a [Dsus2]long t[Em11]ime c[G]omin' but now it's [C]here
Yeah now it's [G]here[Gadd9] [G] [Gadd9]
Well my [G]daddy he was just a [Gadd9]stranger
[G]Lived in a hotel [Gadd9]downtown
When [G]I was a kid he was [Gadd9]just somebody
[G] [C] [G] 
[Gadd9]Somebody I'd see around, somebody I'd see around
Well now [G]down below and pullin' on [Gadd9]my shirts
I've [G]got some kids of my [Gadd9]own
If I [G]had one wish in this [Gadd9]godforsaken world, kids
It'd[G] be that your mistakes'd be your [C]own
Yeah your sins'd be your [G]own[Gadd9] [G] [Gadd9]
It's been a [Dsus2]long t[Em11]ime c[G]omin' my [C]babe

Yeah now it's [G]here[Gadd9] [G] [Gadd9]
Bridge: G C G C G C
Out 'neath the [G]arms of Casseop[Gadd9]eia
Where the [G]sword of Orion [Gadd9]sweeps
It's [G]me 'n' you Rosie we're [Gadd9]cracklin' like crossed wires
[G]And you're breathin' in your [C]sleep
Yeah you're breathin' in your [G]sleep[Gadd9] [G] [Gadd9]
There's just a [G]spark of campfire left [Gadd9]burnin'
Two [G]kids in sleeping bags [Gadd9]beside
I [G]reach 'neath your shirt 'n' lay my [Gadd9]hands 'cross your belly 'n' feel[G]
Another kickin' [C]inside
And I ain't gonna fuck it up this [G]time[Gadd9] [G] [Gadd9]
It's been a [Dsus2]long t[Em11]ime c[G]omin' my [C]dear
It's been a [Dsus2]long t[Em11]ime c[G]omin' but now it's [C]here
