VERSE 1
         Am                 C
Well he came from Northern Ireland
          Am                 C
Searching for the free man's ground
  Am                 C
And he came to bet his fortune
      G              Am
On a West Virginia plow

VERSE 2
   Am               C
He built a house of timber
     Am              C
And raised a redhead son
           Am             C
Then they worked the land together
    G                     Am
And prayed the rain would come
 
CHORUS
           F               C
There's a scarecrow in the garden
     G          Am
That looks like Lucifer
              F              Am
And I've been reading Revelations
        G                Am
With my bare feet in the river

VERSE 3
         Am                C
Well the redhead's son got older
    Am                C
And took a brown eyed wife
         Am                  C
And the fields were green as dollars
          G                 Am
Cause the dirt was black as night

VERSE 4
  Am           C
I came in late September
    Am              C
The youngest one of three
       Am              C
And my sisters off and married
       G                Am
So the land was left to me
 
CHORUS
           F               C
There's a scarecrow in the garden
     G          Am
That looks like Lucifer
              F              Am
And I've been reading Revelations
        G                Am
With my bare feet in the river
 
VERSE 5
  G
I know every single fencepost
      F              Am
Every rock that goes around
          G
I've been staring at the red oak
        F                   Am
Where I know they'll lay me down
 
VERSE 6
    Am                          C
The fields ain't what they once were
    Am                 C
The rains just seem to flood
              Am                  C
And I've been thinking about that river
          G                Am
Wondering how it turned to blood
 
OUTRO
(single strum each note)
          Am               C
I've been sitting here all morning
      Am               C
I was sitting here all night
          Am               C
There's a bible in my left hand
      G            Am
And a pistol in my right
