C7Well I rode the green across tChis country. C7Horses lived and died toC take me F9Men I killed to help me get there, further west I died to take me. C7Blackened face and dirty laundry.C C7Many days since I have eCaten. F9Found myself a family. Broke my back so I could feed them.

Chorus

C7High in the wind.C C7 C F9Standing in the sun. We're gonna' raise C7up the heavens. C C7 C F9With a shovel and a gun. AmI was so much younger then. CI would never ever listen. AmI am so much older now. CI thought that things would end up different. AmFarewellG, lover in green.

Verse

C7Elizabeth she is my Clady. C7Says the prayers and does the lCearnin'. F9Waking up all the children. Making love in early morning. C7We took to building up the cCities. C7We built the churches in our citCies. F9Happy in the green country. And in the green they buried me. -REPEAT CHORUS-
