Below by Slaid Cleaves Ukulele Chords

Capo 3rd Fret

F G Am (Choke)
There??s an old dirt road, just off route nine.
Fades into the lake, at the low water line.
Sometimes I wander down that road alone.
Remembering the town, that I once called home.
I grew up on the valley, every neighbor a friend,
Until the modern world started creeping in.
One day came the lawyers, with cash in hand.
They swore that our village would light up the land.

Chorus:
The dusky waters move cold and slow,
And the ghosts of a village still wander below.
Homesteads of families and friends forever more,
Dm G Am (Choke)
Haunting the valley below this sparkling shore.

Surrounding the valley was a painted red line,
Drawn by company men like marking a crime.
A silent reminder that all inside it must go,
Or be lost to the rising dead river's flow.
Some folks took the money, started grinding gears,
While the rest of us held out, twenty odd years.
We watched our town, like a photograph fade,
Dm G Am (Choke)
As the company came, to take it all away.
They tore down the church, and the schoolhouse burned.
They dug up the graves, the wheels of progress turned.
They got Dutchie’s Store, and Hayden’s Pool Hall,
When the dozers rolled, it shattered us all.

Chorus:

The dusky waters move cold and slow,
And the ghosts of the village still wander below.
Homesteads of families and friends forever more,
Dm G Am (Choke)
Haunting the valley below this sparkling shore.

Instrumental Break
Am / F / G / Am / Dm / G / Am (Choke)

Old May Savage stayed as long as she could.
Her house on the hill towered over the flood.
It rose up alone, in the dark of night,
Its face on the water, in the cold moonlight.
I shake off the memories, on my lips a prayer.
Thanks for the grace, and the beauty down there.
And while the porch lights glow, all over the state,
There’s nothing but darkness, under the lake.

Chorus:

The dusky waters move cold and slow,
And the ghosts of a village still wander below.
Homesteads of families and friends forever more,
Haunting the valley below this sparkling shore.
They haunt the valley below this sparkling shore.

Borderline by Slaid Cleaves Ukulele Chords


In the still of the desert, in the light of the moon,
Armando walks all alone
And the river ahead holds promise and dread
And hes nine hundred miles from his home
He pays the cyotes dodges la megra
walks for four hungry days
when he finally hits Austin the boomtown is bustin
but he takes what the contractor pays

Chorus
When love for family is stronger than fear
when the desperation sets in
a man will cross any line that is drawn
and whos to say it’s a sin
and he crossed himself at the borderline

the rest of the song is the same thing

He wired the dollars to Elena back home as he roomed with ten desperate men
when the builders had enough, the INS cuffed him, and it’s back to the border again

chorus

A tearful reunion with family and friends, but soon the reality sets in
theres no work to be found in the dry desert ground
he must head to estados again

mandolin break

from Guadalajara came the man with no name
he said “You can have all that you need.”
“There’s no contract to sign but the terms are your life,
if you take my money and seed”

chorus

the payments were made, the seed it was sown
Armando watched the crop grow
even his brother in law in the army, was in on the plan from the go

7 months gone and the crops gathered in
but the brother has a plan of his own
he orders a raid, the army invades
and he takes what the village has grown

mandolin break

in from the west came the man with no name
he said “someone must pay with their life
“we know your brother’s, your father, your mother
your children, your sister, your wife”

“Now we can not touch your sisters young husband
Tu Canoa is a military man
but you can decide who lives and who dies”
as he placed the gun in his hand

chorus

in the still of the desert, in the light of the moon
Armando walks all alone
and the river ahead holds promise and dread
and he’s nine hundred miles from his home

Still Fighting the War by Slaid Cleaves Ukulele Chords


Cadd9 G
Hard times comin home now
Can’t get your feet on the ground
Thoughts and issues and no one w[G/F#]ants you around
Barely sleepin and you can’t get through to the VA [C/B] on the phone
No one is hiring and no one wants to [G/F#]give you a loan
And everyone else is carryin on just like they’ve alw[G/F#]ays done before
You’ve been home for a couple a years now buddy but you’re still fightin
the war

Flashback to Falluja
Lost another best friend
Three tours of duty and you’re wondering when it’s all gonna end
Bodies broken and bones shattered
Blood and dust in your mouth
Gettin weary but you’re runnin with the few and the proud
Sometimes you wonder why you went, You never wondered what you stayed on for
You’ve been home for a couple a years now buddy but you’re still fightin the war

(Bridge)
Men go off to war for a hundred reasons
But they all come home with the[C/B] same demons
Some you can keep at bay for awhile, some will pin you[G/F#] to the floor
You’ve been home for a couple of years now buddy but you’re still fightin
the war

The bedspread is frayin
Faded and tearin apart
Two strangers holdin each other in the dark
Tell me, what were you dreamin? How did you think it would end?
How many heroes are scattered out into the wind?
And all the happily ever afters turn to broken dishes and slammin doors
You’ve been home for a couple a years now buddy but you’re still fightin the war

Go for the Gold by Slaid Cleaves Ukulele Chords

Capo 2 (Recorded In F#)

Theres only one rule, that you must heed
It conquers fear, hatred and greed
It trumps all others, Your soul to feed
Theres only one rule, Youll ever need

You could be Hindu, You may be be Sikh
It makes no difference, What tongue you speak
You could pray to Allah, Or be an atheist
Youll be righteous, If you remember this

It aint the silver, It aint the bronze
Its the foundation, That all rests upon
No precious metal, Will save your soul
But if you seek glory, Go for the gold

Inst: (E-A-E-B7-E) 2X

Some so-called Christians, From time to time
Forget this rule, And become blind
They use their church, To try and separate
When its common ground, That makes us great

It aint the silver, Its much more dear
When Jesus spoke, Did you not hear?
Unto others, You must do
As youd have them, Do unto you

Forget those silly little laws, thou shalt not on days of the week
How to dress and who stoned who, what you can and cannot eat
When you go home now, Remember please
To count your blessings, Down on your knees
And make a promise, To do the best you can
To be a friend, To your fellow man

It aint the silver, It aint the bronze
Its the foundation, That all rests upon
No precious metal, Will save your soul
But if you seek glory, Go for the gold

Bring It On by Slaid Cleaves Ukulele Chords


Bring It On
3/20/2010

I know we don't deserve to be going down this way
Pushed around and bound to troubled days
And every time we stand up, dust each other off
I know we may be losin’ but we ain’t lost

Chorus:
Bring it on, bring it on
I’ve seen the rain tumblin’ down
I’ve felt the cold wind blow, I’ve seen trouble hanging ’round
Bring it on, bring it on

Once I dreamed of riches, of happiness untold
Now hopes lie scattered, trash along a lonesome road
But I don’t ask for mercy, it just don’t work that way
Today I’m down but hope will rise another day
Chorus

All those little dreams that never came to be
Well I keep your every teardrop down inside of me
And as I watch you sleeping I hope that you still dream
Cause lately when I wake up I don’t feel anything

Wishbones by Slaid Cleaves Ukulele Chords

6/10/04


Day after day after trying to understand

Why the world tries to grind you down, make a ghost out of a man

Your date of grace is due and you’ve pawned everything you own

I guess some dreams just don’t come true, nothin’ left but skin and wishbones

Each year the world gets lonelier and uglier with sin
You’ll never see those blue skies through young eyes again
You’ve prayed to every god you’ve known just to wind up all alone
Your friends are gone, your mama’s dead, nothin’ left but skin and wishbones

Chorus:

Spin the bottle cap, throw a shot back

Everything’s gonna be all right

Spin the bottle cap, throw a shot back

Cough and cry, Lay down and die

Grab an end, hold on tight

Bottles and bones in the night

You’ll never go back home

You old wishbone

Guitar Solo

Fiddle Solo

Can’t eat can’t sleep can’t think not knowing where to go
This is real life brother, this ain’t no reality show
If suffering is human well I guess we’re not alone
You’ll survive on next to nothing but you won’t live on skin and wishbones

Capo 3 (or capo 5 using for , for , and for )


The last letter that you wrote

Was on a blue piece of paper

That old feelings back

The clouds are moving in

Though the miles are between us

I thought out love would strengthen

As it had

So many times before


But something has happened

I can see it in your writin’

I can tell my world is crumbling

And the blues are at my door

Chorus

Bridge:

The beginning of the end is near

I feel your love has faded

In darkness that it seems to have no friends

I feel the blues moving in

Oh, it’s not the words you wrote
That made me sad and broken hearted
That’s put me in this
Sad shape I’m in

Between the lines are mixed emotions
And there’s teardrops on the paper
And you said that’s all I’ll write today
We’ll close for now as friends

Chorus

Bridge

Instrumental

Oh this state of mind is desperate
and the hole that I’m sinkin in
Gets deeper while I’m
Digging to get out

Oh please give the right answer
To the question that I’m asking
If you tell me that you love me
It would turn my world about

Chorus

I fell the blues movin’ in

Call It Sleep by Slaid Cleaves Ukulele Chords


Slaid Cleaves – Call It Sleep

Capo 3

You’re a working man with a [C/B]welders tan
A sky blue ford you bought second hand
You drive on down to the [C/B]factory
You drive on down because it’s your job you see
Carry your thermos unde[C/B]rneath your arm
Little coffee and burbon will help you through the morn
You crack wise with the guys so it [C/B]don’t bring you down
Time ain’t nothing but the world spinnin round

You call it sleep
There’s a car out on the four lane
You call it sleep
The rain on your window pane
Call it sleep
It’s all the same

You stop off down at the palamino club
The neon sign says we’ve got your bud
It’s a cinderblock building on a gravel parking lot
It’s friday night your out to spend every cent you got
So you dance the floor with a mexican girl
She’s got whiskey on her breath smoke in her curls
The hands holding ciggerates and faces you don’t know
You sit at the bar until it’s time to go

Chorus

The morning air feels like mud over your eyes
The sun coming up is just a sixty watt light
Maybe leave this town and leave this life
Get in your car and you start to drive
There’s boarded up building and places you’ve never been
Cars on the interstate that never seem to end
It all flys away with the wave of your hand
Like birds over water trying to find land

Chorus

You’re a working man with a welders tan
A sky blue ford you bought second hand
