Children Of Children
By Jason Isbell
Written By Jason Isbell
CD: Something More Than Free (2015)
Tabbed By Larry Mofle

Jason is either tuning down a whole step in drop D or using an open tuning chords 
in this song - I am tabbing it to standard tuning so it won't sound exactly 
like the recording (much lower notes) but the chords will work

Pictures of the farm before us
Old men in a gospel chorus
Sepia and saddle horses
Easy on the reins

'81 a motorin'
Your Mama's 17 again
She's squintin' at the dusty wind
The anger of the plains

You and I were almost nothing
Pray to God that God was bluffing 
17 ain't old enough to 
Reason with the pain

How could we expect to 
Stay in love When neither knew the 
The meaning of the difference between 
Sacred and profane

Bridge 1:
C                  G                                      D
I was riding on my mother's hip, she was shorter than the corn
C               G                           A    C  D
All the years I took from her just by being born

Didn't mean to break the cycle
At 17 I went by Michael
No one ever called me by 
My own name anyway

Half full generations
Living all these expectations
Giving way to one, late to have 
A baby on the way

Bridge 2:
And you were riding on your mother's hip she was shorter than the corn
All the years you took from her just by being born
