Pale Sun  Cowboy Junkies

by Michael Timmins (from the Cowboy Junkies web site)
[Am]Fifty miles from [Em]Dakota territory
[C]Cheyenne [E]scalp hangs from his [Am]belt
[Am]Found him alone [Em]washing in the Bighorn
[C]a steady [E]aim and he [Am]bagged his game
[Dm]Pale sun falls without [Am]contest
[Dm]Here is obedient [Am]darkness
[G]He will not [Am]return
[Am]White Cadillac, [Em]white man at the wheel,
[C]white faces on the [E]mountain, [Am]wounds that will never heal
[Am]Black clouds overhead, [Em]old man says looks like rain
[C]Thieves' Road winds to the [E]Black Hills sign says [Am]South Dakota, U.S.A.
[Dm]Grass plains stretch to the [Am]horizon,
[Dm]not a soul can be found [Am]on them
[G]They will not [Am]return
[Bb] [C] [C] [Bb] [A] [Am7] [A] [Bb] [Am7] [Bb] [A]  
[Bb] [C] [C] [Bb] [A] [Am7] [A] [Bb] [Am7] [A]  
[Am]Old rusted pickup and a mad dog in t[Em]he yard,
[C]purple paint peels but [E]fails to reveal the [Am]bitterness that grows inside
[Am]Cloud of dust in the distance, [Em]strange knock beneath my hood
[C]Is it better to have words [E]left unsaid than to have [Am]words misunderstood?
[Dm]Pale sun falls without [Am]contest
[Dm]Here is obedient [Am]darkness
[G]It will r[Am]eturn
[G]I know it will [Am]return
[G]It will r[Am]eturn.
