The Lowlands

(capo on 2nd fret)

Bm G D
I’m headed for the lowlands would you please direct my way
A Bm
The train is leaving shortly there’s no time for delay
Bm G D
She told me she’d be waiting I’m not so sure she is
A Bm
I heard that there’s another man who claims that she is his

Bm A Bm
The lowlands were my home when I was but a child
A Bm
They will be my deathbed when I’ve past time

Bm G D
I remember one summer day the clouds began to build
A Bm
We gathered the cattle that had scattered cross the fields
G D
Well it started to rain and continued several days
A Bm
The river over flowed and the crops all went to waste

Bm G D
You know that I’m no failure though my victories are few
A Bm
I’m trying my best but there’s too much here to do
G D
That girl I love once told me I made here feel secure

It’s hard to think I’ve been replaced. Nothing does endure

The Lowlands

I’m headed for the lowlands, would you, please, direct my way ?
The train is leaving shortly, there’s no time for delay
She told me she’d be waiting, I’m not so sure she is
I heard that there’s another man who claims that she is his.

The lowlands were my home when I was but a child
They will be my deathbed when I’ve past my time.

I remember one summer day, the clouds began to build
We gathered the cattle that had scattered ‘cross the fields
Well, it started to rain and continued several days
The river overflowed and the crops all went to waste.

The lowlands were my home when I was but a child
They will be my deathbed when I’ve past my time.

You know that I’m no failure though my victories are few
I’m trying my best but there’s too much here to do
That girl I love once told me I made here feel secure
It’s hard to think I’ve been replaced., nothing does endure.

The lowlands were my home when I was but a child
They will be my deathbed when I’ve past my time.
