MY FATHER'S HOUSE from Nebraska 


INTRO:  D  A  D


                    G             D
Last night I dreamed that I was a child 
                                  A
Out where the pines grow wild and tall
      D         G                        D
I was trying to make it home through the forest 
              A       D
Before the d..arkness falls
                         G            D
I heard the wind rustling through the trees 
                                 A
And ghostly voices rose from the fields
                    D       G                 D
I ran with my heart pounding down that broken path
              A               D
With the devil snappin' at my heels
                             G             D
I broke through the trees and there in the night
                                         A
My father's house stood shining hard and bright 
                 D        G                             D
The branches and brambles tore my clothes and scratched my arms
                       A              D
But I ran till I fell, shaking in his arms


HARMONICA:  D  A  D


                                G                      D
I awoke and I imagined the hard things that pulled us apart
                                                 A
Will never again, sir, tear us from each other's hearts
      D                    G           D                   
I got dressed, and to that house I did ride 
                                      A                  D
From out on the road, I could see its windows shining in light
                         G             D
I walked up the steps and stood on the porch 
                                                                  A
A woman I didn't recognize came and spoke to me through a chained door
              D    G                 D
I told her my story and who I'd come for
                                            A                  D
She said I'm sorry, son, but no one by that name lives here anymore


HARMONICA:  G  D  A  D
            G  D  A  D


                       G          D
My father's house shines hard and bright 
                                          A
It stands like a beacon calling me in the night
            D      G             D
Calling and calling so cold and alone
                                           A           D
Shining across this dark highway where our sins lie unatoned
