Waylon Jennings Six White Horses Lyrics

Last updated:

Verse 1:
E F#m A E
Come here and look through the window Marie
F#m A E
Open up the shutters,tell me what you see
G#m A E
Was that his knock that i heard at the door
F#m D E
Or is it six white horses coming down the road


Verse 2:
E F#m A E
Come here and touch me and say that it's alright
F#m A E
You know that to my eyes the days are as the nights
G#m A E
Read again the letter that tells me where he's gone
F#m D E
To hell with the fighting i want my son home


Verse 3:
E F#m A E
I taught him to fish and i taught him to be strong
F#m A E
I taught him that killing any man was wrong
G#m A E
But tommorrow in battle i'd run to where he stood
F#m D E
If the help of a blind man would do any good


Break (F#).


Verse 4:(a tone higher)
F# G#m B F#
Last night i went to his room for awhile
G#m B F#
I've touched all the things that he used as a child
A#m B F#
I rocked the cradle where he used to lay
G#m E F#
I found his tin soldiers and threw them away


Verse 5:(idem)
F# G#m B F#
Come here and look through the window Marie
G#m B F#
Open up the shutters,tell me what you see
A#m B F#
Was that his knock that i heard at the door
G#m E F#
Or is it six white horses coming up the road


You can play G#m (and the others same way): ||||||
