Down by the Mississippi, buried in the mud
Is a five page oath and a bottle of wine
It's engraved in steel, it's written in blood
As far as I can tell, the blood is mine  (Em  Em)

  C           D/A            C              D/A
I swear and I cry, “I can't let this secret down!”
  C                         D/A                 riff1
But it's best to let things lie buried in the ground


Up in the canyon's little leaf ledge
Is my twisted brain and a crying rain
There's a box of lightning, there's a box of lead
But there's a pail of hope next to my bottle of pain  (Em  Em)


    C     D/A                Em   Emsus2
Gov'ner     if the sun goes down
C          D/A       Em   Emsus2
   Amazing grace I will have found
    C              D/A                Em    Emsus2
'Cause I need time     to resolve this feud
C                    D/A   D*      riff1
If I don't have time    I might shoot


It's my great granddaddy and my daddy's kin
They fell hell bent towards you and you against him
I don't know you'd better ask them
I don't know why, I don't know how
I just carry on the tradition


    C     D/A                        Em   Emsus2
Gov'ner       if I am so crazy as to raise this here gun
 C               D/A            Em   Emsus2
     Oh Lord in Heaven have mercy on this one
 C               D/A                             Em   Emsus2
     Mother,          rage and hate have made me blind
 C               D/A                            C     
     I carry on,      my neighbor, I don't even know why
D*              C            D*        riff1
Can't tell you why,  I don't even know why


It's here in the saddle bag, my grandma's gold
I ride to dawn on my lightning mare
It's just like a story that's always been told
It's like I don't need a reason and like I don't even care


  C           D/A            C              D/A
I swear and I cry, “I can't let this secret down!”
  C                         D/A               riff1
But it's best to let things lie buried in the ground

    C     D/A             Em   Emsus2
Gov'ner       you must realize
 C                      D/A       Em   Emsus2
   It's just the family name that makes me blind
 C        D/A                     Em   Emsus2
   Oh God,     please brainwash me, scold me too
 C                           D/A       D*
   If I don't forgive, or at least forget
 C                           D/A       D*
   If I don't forgive, or at least forget
 C                           D/A       D*
   If I don't forgive, or at least forget
 C                           D/A       
   If I don't forgive, or at least forget
         D*                c
I will continue with this feud
          D*                c
       Continue with this feud
          D*                c
       Just like a cartoon
          D*                c
       It's just a family feud
          D*                c
       And as I end this tune
          D*                riff1 (2x)
Will I continue with the feud? 

C  D*  C  D*  C  D*  C  D*  C  D*
C  D*  C  D*  C  D*  C  D*  C  D*
