Look out, Ma, there's a white boat comin' up the river
C                                          G    C G
With a big red beacon and a flag and a man on the rail
C
I think you'ld better call John
Bm        Cmaj7
'cause it don't look like they're here to deliver the mail
Bm                Cmaj7
And it's less than a mile away
Bm                       Cmaj7
I hope they didn't come to stay
Bm                        Cmaj7
It's got numbers on the side and a gun
D       FILL
and it's makin' big waves

Daddy's gone and my brother's out huntin' in the mountains
Big John's been drinkin' since the river took Emmy Lou
So the powers that be left me here to do the thinkin'
And I just turned twenty-two
I was wonderin' what to do
And the closer they got
The more those feelin's grew

INSTRUMENTAL (SOLO over VERSE chords)

Daddy's rifle in my hand felt reassurin;
He told me "Red means run, son, and numbers add up to nothin'"
When the first shot hit the dock I saw it comin'
Raised my rifle to my eye
Never stopped to wonder why
Then I saw black and my face splashed in the sky

INSTRUMENTAL (SOLO over VERSE chords)

Shelter me from the powder and the finger
Cover me with the one that pulled the trigger
Just think of me as one you never figured
Would fade away so young
With so much left undone
Remember me to my love, I know I'll miss her
