And, what’ll you do now, my blue-eyed son?
And, [D]what’ll you do now, my darling young [A]one?
I’m [G/D]a-goin’ back out ’fore the [A/D]rain starts [D]a-fallin’
I’ll [G/D]walk to the depths of the [A/D]deepest dark [D]forest
Where the [G/D]people are many and their [A/D]hands are all [D]empty
Where the [G/D]pellets of poison are [A/D]flooding their [D]waters
Where the [G/D]home in the valley meets the [A/D]damp dirty [D]prison
And the [G/D]executioner’s face is [A/D]always well [D]hidden
Where [G/D]hunger is ugly, where the [A/D]souls are [D]forgotten
Where [G/D]black is the color, where [A/D]none is the [D]number
And I’ll [G/D]tell it and speak it and [A/D]think it and [D]breathe it
And [G/D]reflect from the mountain so [A/D]all souls can [D]see it
Then I’ll [G/D]stand on the ocean [A/D]until I start [D]sinkin’
But I’ll [G/D]know my song well [A/D]before I start [D]singin’
And it’s a [D]hard, it’s a [A]hard, it’s a [D]hard, and it’s a [G]hard
It’s a hard[D] rai—n’[A]s a-gonna fall[[D]]
