Am Am                    G G
Getting born in the state of Mississippi,

Am Am G G Dm Dm Am Am
She never knew that there was anything more than all,
Am Am G G Dm Dm Am Am
Well in the war your comfort to take me for,
Am Am G G
Black bandanna, sweet Louisiana,
Dm Dm Am Am
Robbing on a bank in the state of Indiana,
Am Am G G
She's a runner, Rebel and a stunner,
Dm Dm Am Am
Come to Mirawais saying "Baby watcha gona?",
Am Am G G Dm Dm Am Am
Looking down the barrell of a hot bell 45,
Am Am G G Dm Dm
Just another way to survive

A A little low,

That she was stealing another bread,

Who knew the hardest time to prove?

Too true to say goodbye to you
Bm Bm
Too true to say, say, say

Verse 3:

Am Am G G
Pushed the fader, Gifted animator,
Dm Dm Am Am
One for the now, And eleven for the later,
Am Am G G
Never made it up to Minnesota,

Down in the Badlands she was saving the best for last,
Am Am
It only hurts when I laugh,
G G
Gone to fade
