My Father's Gun  Elton John

F[D]rom this day on, I [G/D]own my father's[F#m7] gun.
I[Bm] dug his shallow [Bm/A]grave beneath the [G]sun.
[A]I lay his broken b[F#/A#]ody down [Bm]beneath the s[D/A]outhern l[G]and.
[C]It wouldn't do to [Bm]bury him[G] where any Yankee[A7] stands.
D G?D F#m7
I'll take my horse and I'll ride the northern plain.
T[Bm]o wear the color of the [Bm/A]greys and join the fight a[G]gain.
[A]I'll not rest u[F#/A#]ntil I know the c[Bm]ause is fo[D/A]ught and w[G]on.
[C]From this day on, [Bm]until I die,[G] I'll wear my father's [C]gun.
[F#]I'd like to k[Bm]now where the r[Amsus]iverboat sails toni[G]ght.
[F#7]To New Orlean[Bm]s, well, th[Amsus]at's just fine, alri[G]ght.
Cause there's fig[E]hting there and the co[A]mpany needs[F#/A#] men,[F#] [Bm] [Am]
[G]So slip us a rope and s[A]ail on around the b[C/D]end.
[D]As soon as this is [G/D]over, we'll go [F#m7]home.
[Bm]To plant the seeds of j[Bm/A]ustice in our b[G]ones.
[A]To watch the children [F#/A#]growing,[Bm] and see the [D/A]women s[G]ewing.
[C]There'll be laughter when the [Bm]bells of freedom r[G]ing.[D]
[F#]I'd like to k[Bm]now where the r[Amsus]iverboat sails toni[G]ght.
[F#7]To New Orlean[Bm]s, well, th[Amsus]at's just fine, alri[G]ght.
Cause there's fig[E]hting there and the co[A]mpany needs[F#/A#] men,[F#] [Bm] [Am]
[G]So slip us a rope and s[A]ail on around the b[C/D]end.
