It's Time To Go
© 2007 Craig Stewart
A E Dsus2 A Dsus2 A/C# Bm7 A
A E Dsus2 A
Six generations of my family's worked this land
A E Dsus2
Their heads hang in the hallway, how I hope they'd understand
A E Dsus2 A
I head out to the holding yard, the rifle in my hand
A E Dsus2
No sign of rain, can't buy more grain, the stock can hardly stand
Dsus2 A/C# Bm7 Asus4 A
It's time to go, it's time to go ....... oooooh it's time to go

The willows cannot weep for a creek that's cracked and dry
The fields of golden wheat have been baked beneath blue sky
The wind rolls in to sweep the soil away up oh so high
A farmer in defeat, falls to his knees and cries
It's time to go, it's time to go ....... oooooh it's time to go

HARP SOLO OVER FULL VERSE

MIDDLE 8
E Dsus2 A
But tonight up on the ridgetop by the moon I'll take some wine
E Dsus2 E
To sit beneath the stars and drink it in just one more time
A E Dsus2 A
So here's to you my darlin', forever you'll be mine
Dsus2 A/C# Bm7 A
But it's time to go, oooooh it's time to go

Six generations of my family's worked this land
Their heads hang in the hallway, how I hope they'd understand
The sheep have all been buried & there's just one task at hand
The willows cannot weep in a dusty, barren land
It's time to go, it's time to go ...... oooooh it's time to go
OUTRO SAME AS LAST LINE
Dsus2 A/C# Bm7 Asus4 A
