Native Son.
John Hiatt.
Album: Walk On.

Intro: Em Cmaj7 G C G D/E Em Edim7/D Em C G C G 

    D                 Em7       D Em7
You finally found the mainstream,
       C              G    C G
In the middle of your life,
    D             Em
You tapped into a vein,
   D            Em
Of endless gold chains,
           C         G     C G
Now you're locked up tight,
D                Em7         D Em7
Tearing down the middle of it,
C                     G    C G
Splitting it right in half,
        D               Em
Bobbing up and down the waves,
       D       Em
Like a runaway slave,
     C         G    C G
On a Huck Finn raft.


D6        Em    D6        Em
Take your wife, take your family,
C         G  C G
Take your gun, 
D6                  Em7
Running through the woods,
        D6                 Em
And the burned out neighborhoods,
        C       G  C  G              Em7
Looking for someone, a member of your tribe,
                Em             C       G    C G
A Place you can hide, 'til the war has begun,
              B7                Em
'Cause in the fields before the flood,
D6                 Em            C      G   C G
You'll be spilling blood, like a native son.

                
D 	  	  	  	 Em    D Em7
Where you gonna run to,
      C             G      C G
There ain't no underground,
   D              Em
If only you could fly,
      D              Em
You'd cut across the sky,
       C     G    C G 
Like a rifle round,
    D            Em    D Em7
Oh, who are your people,
    C             G        C G 
And where is your homeland,
               D             Em
'Cause they're dying side by side,
       D        Em
At the river of pride,
         C               G     C G 
Where we tried to take a stand.


D6        Em    D6        Em
Take your wife, take your family,
C         G  C G
Take your gun, 
D6                  Em
Running through the woods,
        D6                 Em
And the burned out neighborhoods,
        C       G  C   D6                Em
Looking for someone, a warrior from your tribe,
D6              Em             C       G    C G
A Place you can hide, 'til the war has begun,
              B7                Em
'Cause in the fields before the flood,
D                  Em            C      G  C G
You'll be spilling blood, like a native son.


D6        Em    D6        Em
Take your wife, take your family,
C         G  C G
Take your gun, 
D6                  Em7
Running through the woods,
        D6                 Em
And the burned out neighborhoods,
        C       G  C   D6                 Em
Looking for someone, a warrior from your tribe,
D               Em             C       G    C G
A Place you can hide, 'til the war has begun,
              B7                Em
'Cause in the fields before the flood,
D                  Em            C      G   C G
You'll be spilling blood, like a native son.

       B7                Em
in the fields before the flood,
D                  Em            C      G   C G
You'll be spilling blood, like a native son.

B7 Em7 D Em C  G
