Black Ribbons.
Gretchen Peters.
Album: Blackbirds.
Capo 5.

Em                                           A         Em
I built this house with my bare hands on the shores of Louisian,
        A          Em                           
Took my sweet cher Jolie-Ann for my own, my very own,
Em                                         A       
Now every man has got his pride I tried to shelter and provide,
            A                     Em           
But I canít stop this poison tide rolliní in Ė rolliní in.

(Chorus)
    A                    Em                         A
Now Iíve nothing left to give her, no answer to her prayers,
              Em                  A       Em
Black ribbons on the water, black ribbons for her hair.

Em                                    A           Em
Then came the wind, came the rain, we defied that hurricane
                  A                    Em
And we built this house again stone by stone, stone by stone
Em                         A         Em
But in the Gulf of Mexico, 5000 feet below
                        D                 Em
Oh the devilís blood it flows, on and on, on and on
 
(Chorus)
    A                    Em                         A
Now Iíve nothing left to give her, no answer to her prayers,
              Em                  A       Em
Black ribbons on the water, black ribbons for her hair.

Break: Em A Em A Em

Em                                      A          
Oh how her eyes they used to shine, the fairest in Evangeline.
                           D                 Em
Now they stare so cold and blind, through my soul, oh Lord my soul.
        A              Em                              A
She was tangled in the saltgrass, not a bullet left to spare,
              Em                  A        Em
Black ribbons on the water, black ribbons for her hair.
      A              Em           A               Em A Em 
Black ribbons on the water, black ribbons for her hair.
