Scarecrow In The Garden.
Chris Stapleton.
Album: From A Room Vol 2.

Intro: Abm7 C#m7 E C#m7 E C#m7 E B6 C#m7

C#m               E
Well he came from Northern Ireland,
          C#m                E
Searching for the free manís ground,
       C#m             E
And he came to bet his fortune,
     B             C#m B6 C#m7 C#m
On a west virginia plow.

C#m                 E
He built a house of timber,
    C#m              E
And raised a redhead son,
          C#m        E
Then they worked the land together,
    B                     C#m
And prayed the rain would come.

(Chorus)
          A                E
Thereís a scarecrow in the garden,
     B              C#m
That looks like Lucifer,
              A6      E   C#m
And Iíve been reading revelations,
        B                C#m  
With my bare feet in the dirt.

Break: C#m7 E C#m7 E C#m7 E B6 C#m7 C#m

C#m              C#m7    E
Well the redhead son got older,
    C#m7              E
And took a brown-eyed wife,
        C#m         E
And the fields were green as dollars,
           B                 C#m
'cause the dirt was black as night.

C#m       C#m7    E
I came in late September,
    C#m             E
The youngest one of three,
       C#m             E
And my sisters off and married,
       B                C#m
So the land was left to me.

(Chorus)
          A                E
Thereís a scarecrow in the garden,
     B              C#m
That looks like Lucifer,
              A6      E   C#m
And Iíve been reading revelations,
        B                C#m  
With my bare feet in the dirt.

       B
I know every single fence post,
      A          C#m
Every rock to go around,
          B
Iíve been staring at the red oak,
        A                   C#m
Where I know theyíll lay me down.

           E
The fields ainít what they once were,
    C#m        E
The rains just seem to flood,
              C#m7                E
And iíve been thinking Ďbout that river,
          B6              C#m
Wonderiní how it turns to blood.

          C#m7
Iíve been sitting here all morning,
      C#m6             E
I was sitting here all night,
          C#m7        E
Thereís a Bible in my left hand,
      B            C#m
And a pistol in my right.
