     CmCm chord        AbAb chord             BbBb chord           EbEb chord
The young man stands on the edge of his porch
    FmFm chord        CmCm chord            FmFm chord         GG chord
The days were short and the father was gone
          CmCm chord            AbAb chord        BbBb chord             EbEb chord
There was no one in the town and no one in the field
     FmFm chord           CmCm chord             FmFm chord           GG chord
This dusty barren land had given all it could yield


          CmCm chord            AbAb chord           BbBb chord         EbEb chord
I've been kicked off my land at the age of sixteen
    FmFm chord          CmCm chord               FmFm chord               GG chord
And I have no idea where else my heart could have been
  CmCm chord            AbAb chord            BbBb chord            EbEb chord
I placed all my trust at the foot of this hill
     FmFm chord      CmCm chord               FmFm chord       GG chord
And now I am sure my heart can never be still
   CmCm chord           AbAb chord              BbBb chord         EbEb chord
So collect your courage and collect your horse
     FmFm chord            CmCm chord             FmFm chord        GG chord
And pray you never feel this same kind of remorse


CmCm chord      AbAb chord         BbBb chord        EbEb chord
Seal my heart and brake my pride
     FmFm chord         CmCm chord            FmFm chord         GG chord
I've nowhere to stand and now nowhere to hide
 CmCm chord      AbAb chord         BbBb chord        EbEb chord
Align my heart, my body, my mind
   FmFm chord             CmCm chord       FmFm chord    GG chord
To face what I've done and do my time


      CmCm chord        AbAb chord            BbBb chord          EbEb chord
Well you are my accuser, now look in my face
FmFm chord             CmCm chord            FmFm chord        GG chord
Your opression reeks of your greed and disgrace
   CmCm chord      AbAb chord         BbBb chord         EbEb chord
So one man has and another has not
FmFm chord          CmCm chord           FmFm chord          GG chord
How can you love what it is you have got
         CmCm chord          AbAb chord             BbBb chord            EbEb chord
When you took it all from the weak hands of the poor?
FmFm chord        CmCm chord                   FmFm chord         GG chord
Liars and thieves you know not what is in store


      CmCm chord          AbAb chord           BbBb chord            EbEb chord
There will come a time I will look in your eye
    FmFm chord               CmCm chord           FmFm chord         GG chord
You will pray to the God that you always denied
    CmCm chord          AbAb chord             BbBb chord      EbEb chord
The I'll go out back and I'll get my gun
               FmFm chord      CmCm chord               FmFm chord   GG chord
I'll say, "You haven't met me, I am the only son"


CmCm chord      AbAb chord         BbBb chord        EbEb chord
Seal my heart and brake my pride
     FmFm chord         CmCm chord            FmFm chord         GG chord
I've nowhere to stand and now nowhere to hide
 CmCm chord      AbAb chord         BbBb chord        EbEb chord
Align my heart, my body, my mind
   FmFm chord             CmCm chord       FmFm chord    GG chord
To face what I've done and do my time

Well yes sir, yes sir, yes it was me
  FmFm chord             CmCm chord            FmFm chord             GG chord

I went out back and I got my gun

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
