Southern Man

{Refrain}
Southern man better keep your head
Don't forget what your good book said
Southern change gonna come at last
Now your crosses are burning fast
Southern man

/ Dm - Fmaj7 - / Bb - G7 - / : / Dm - Bb Gm /

I saw cotton and I saw black
Tall white mansions and little shacks
Southern man when will you pay them back
I heard screamin' and bullwhips cracking
How long? How long?

/ Dm - Bb Gm / / / A - - - / /

{Refrain}

Lily Belle, your hair is golden brown
I've seen your black man comin' round
Swear by God I'm gonna cut him down

Ohio

Tin soldiers and Nixon's coming
We're finally on our own
This summer I hear the drumming
Four dead in Ohio

/ Dm - F C / :

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are gunning us down
Should have been done long ago
What if you knew her and
Found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know

/ Gm7 - / C - / Gm7 - C - / :

Ah, la la la la...

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are gunning us down
Should have been done long ago
What if you knew her and
Found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know

Tin soldiers and Nixon's coming
We're finally on our own

Helpless

There is a town in north Ontario
With dream comfort memory to spare
And in my mind I still need a place to go
All my changes were there

/ D A G - / :

Blue, blue windows behind the stars
Yellow moon on the rise
Big birds flying across the sky
Throwing shadows on our eyes, leave us

Helpless, helpless, helpless
Helpless, helpless, helpless, helpless
Baby can you hear me now
Helpless, helpless, helpless, helpless
The chains are locked and tied across the door
Helpless, helpless, helpless, helpless
Baby, sing with me somehow

Heart of Gold

I wanna live, I wanna give
I've been a miner for a heart of gold
It's these expressions I never give
That keep me searchin' for a heart of goldAnd I'm gettin' oldThat keep me searchin' for a heart of goldAnd I'm gettin' old

/ Em C D G / / / Em - G - / C - - G / Em - G - / C - - G /

I've been to Hollywood, I've been to Redwood
I crossed the ocean for a heart of gold
I've been in my mind, it's such a fine line
That keeps me searching...

Keep me searchin' for a heart of gold
You keep me searchin' and I'm growin' old

After the Goldrush

Well, I dreamed I saw the knights in armor coming
Saying something about a queen
There were peasants singing and drummers drumming
And the archer split the tree
There was a fanfare blowing to the sun
That was floating on the breeze
Look at Mother Nature on the run in the nineteen seventies (2X)

/ D G / / D A / G A / Bm C / G C - / D A C G / /

I was lying in a burned out basement
With the full moon in my eyes
I was hoping for replacement
When the sun burst through the sky
There was a band playing in my head
And I felt like getting high
