May not be accurate, but sounds OK.Same pattern can be followed just strumming and playing D-Dadd9-D5 D Rooted down with lessons that he carGried AHome from Vietnam to Wounded KDnee D Johnny Lobo burned the flag he Gknew had been dishonored A Paid the price for thinkin' he was Dfree G Someone set his house afire,Fm burned it to the ground Fm With his wife and children locked insideA Fm Later when the bitter tears were Gfalling to the ashes A Somethin' good in Johnny Lobo Ddied

Chorus

Harp melody... D In a darkened corner of a tavernG A Burnin' down old memories agDain D Johnny Lobo stares into the sGmoke and dreams of clouds A Runnin' like wild horses with the windD G Holy phoenix rising from the aFmshes Fm Into the circle of the Asun Fm Johnny Lobo's warrior heart was Gburnished in the embers A And the battle's just begDun

Chorus

Outro

D A G

I´ve tried to place the chords most accurate to the precisely moment when singing lyrics. It means that every single "space" corresponds to the beating and strumming pattern. So, as an example, when singing the part: "D G " Rooted down with lessons that he carried ... Guitar is strumming the chord right before starting singin´, therefore space. And, therefore also, no space left when: "A D" Somewhere in the land of Sittin' Bull ... But every ear, brain and personality chooses the sounds differently. So be free to sing the song as you please. Better enjoy the singin´than get crazy tryin´ mathemathics on a guitar.
