C7                            C
Well I rode the green across this country.
C7                      C
Horses lived and died to take me
F9
Men I killed to help me get there, further west I died to take me.
C7                               C
Blackened face and dirty laundry.
C7                      C
Many days since I have eaten.
F9
Found myself a family.

Broke my back so I could feed them.

-CHORUS-
C7               C             C7               C
High in the wind.
F9
Standing in the sun.
                   C7                     C               C7             C
We're gonna' raise up the heavens.
F9
With a shovel and a gun.
Am
I was so much younger then.
C
I would never ever listen.
Am
I am so much older now.
C
I thought that things would end up different.
Am      G
Farewell, lover in green.

C7                  C
Elizabeth she is my lady.
C7                             C
Says the prayers and does the learnin'.
F9
Waking up all the children.

Making love in early morning.
C7                          C
We took to building up the cities.
C7                              C
We built the churches in our cities.
F9
Happy in the green country.

And in the green they buried me.

Oh. She sang hymns that made me cry.
Am           C
Oh. She danced so tender.
Am     C                  G
As I held you in the green.
*Bridge ends with a flurry of notes I do not know.
