Dustbowl Dance (Mumford & Sons)

Bm G A D 1. The young man stands on the edge of his porch Em Bm Em F# The days were short and the father was gone Bm G A D There was no one in the town and no one in the field Em Bm Em F# This dusty barren land had given all it could yield 2. I've been kicked off my land at the age of sixteen And I have no idea where else my heart could have been I placed all my trust at the foot of this hill And now I am sure my heart can never be still Bm G A D So collect your courage and collect your horse Em Bm Em F# And pray you never feel this same kind of remorse 3. Seal my heart and brake my pride I've nowhere to stand and now nowhere to hide Align my heart, my body, my mind To face what I've done and do my time 4. Well you are my accuser, now look in my face Your opression reeks of your greed and disgrace So one man has and another has not How can you love what it is you have got Bm G A D When you took it all from the weak hands of the poor? Em Bm Em F# Liars and thieves you know not what is in store 5. There will come a time I will look in your eye You will pray to the God that you always denied The I'll go out back and I'll get my gun I'll say, "You haven't met me, I am the only son" Bm G A D Seal my heart and brake my pride Em Bm Em F# I've nowhere to stand and now nowhere to hide Bm G A D Align my heart, my body, my mind Em Bm Em F# To face what I've done and do my time 6. Well yes sir, yes sir, yes it was me I know what I've done, cause I know what I've seen I went out back and I got my gun I said, "You haven't met me, I am the only son"
