                Capo 1

| Em G D C D |2x

Verse:

Em                             G                    D   C D

They're looking for some hired guns on the Texas border

Em                             G                     D    C D

To shoot 'em all down if they try to cross over the water

Em                               G                       D    C D

And they've got their old white hoods and the same old orders

Em                      G                 D     C D

To keep the dark sons away from their daughters

Bridge:

Bm

The nights they came on horses

   D                   G

Are long gone with the wind

            Bm

Now they're passing out the torches

         D          G    A

And they're coming back again

Chorus:

          Em             G

There's a shotgun blast

          D           C D

There's a secret sign

Em                 G                            D     C D

It's not a candle burning and it's not a Sunday night

          Em               G

There's a fire on the cross

          D                   C     D

There's a fire on the cross tonight

Verse:

Em                            G                  D     C D

There wasn't any sound but it felt like sudden thunder

Em                  G                     D   C D

Two boards nailed together and burning bright

Em                                    G                 D   C D

He was walking by the window when he saw it,  now he wonders

Em                                   G

Just what he's got to do to make him see

                    D       C D

He just want to be brothers

Bridge:

Bm

The nights they came on horses

   D                   G

Are long gone with the wind

            Bm

Now they're passing out the torches

         D          G    A

And they're coming back again

Chorus:

          Em             G

There's a shotgun blast

          D           C D

There's a secret sign

Em                 G                            D     C D

It's not a candle burning and it's not a Sunday night

          Em               G

There's a fire on the night

          D                   C     D Em

There's a fire on the cross tonight

         D          G    A

And they're coming back again

          Em             G

There's a shotgun blast

          D           C D

There's a secret sign

Em                 G                            D     C D
