Capo on 1st fret
	  		


Intro: G C G D 
G 


G                                    C            G 
Not another foot was stirring on the floor of the house 
D                            C        G 
except for my 'pa who'd been up for a while 
G                               C             G 
Seems he's headin' on after the bad word that came, 
        D                            C             G 
of his brothers who marched but were left down all slain 

       D 
Please call out the cavalry 
C           G 
Send them along 
     D 
For we need our daddy, 
    C            G 
and so does this farm 

     C 
Mama stays awake to pray, 
      G 
in a lonely straw bed 
       D 
and we rise before the sun 
         C            G 
with the work that he left 

G C G 

G                             C               G 
He took what mama made him to feed him on his way 
    D                         C            G 
he kissed all my brothers, my sisters, and me 
     G                       C               G 
he held my poor mama, looked down and said, "Son, 
         D                        C           G 
I'll be home soon, now hand me my coat and my gun." 


       D 
Please call out the cavalry 
C         G 
Send them along 
    D 
For we need our daddy 
    C            G 
and so does this farm 

     C 
Mama stays awake to pray 
      G 
in a lonely straw bed 
       D 
and we rise before the sun 
         C            G 
with the work that he left 

G G C G 
G D G C G 

G                                    C            G 
It's been some days without him, but we've toiled away 
D                            C                G 
hang onto the cattle and the crops that we've laid 
G                           C            G 
mama sits by the window and stares until dark 
      D                   C             G 
and rocks by the fire and cries out her heart 

       D 
Please call out the cavalry 
C           G 
Send my man home 
    D 
For we need our daddy 
    C            G 
and so does this farm 

     C                         G             
mama stays awake to pray, in a lonely straw bed 
       D                            C             G 
and we rise before the sun, for the work that you left 

G G C G 
G G D G 

G                          C         G 
been about a year since my daddy had gone 
       D                          C             G 
when I saw an old carriage, and a coat I'd once known 
       G                          C               G 
it was draped o'er a man who once stood proud and tall 
    D                       C          G 
now broken and battered and missing an arm 

G                                C               G 
he cried when he saw us, and the words they came slow 
       D                        C              G 
of the sunrise he found and the hell that he'd known 
    G                        C          G 
he asked for forgiveness for failing us all 
     D                     C         G 
his duty cut short, in the battle he lost 

          D                          C           G 
We said, "don't mind that daddy, for now you are home, 
    D                           C           G 
now mama cries for joy, and she won't sleep alone. 
       C                              G 
You've sons and you've daughters, now please use our arms." 
    D                            C          G 
Now rise before the sun, for the work to be done.
