      Am 
I'm a white man living in a white man's world
Am
Under our roof is a baby girl
  Dm
I thought this world could be hers one day
        Am
But her mama knew better

      Am
I'm a white man living in a white man's town
Am
Want to take a shot of cocaine and burn it down
Dm
Mama wants to change that Nashville sound
            Am
But they're never gonna let her


Chorus:
Dm                               Am
There's no such thing as someone else's war
Dm                                Am                E
Your creature comforts aren't the only things worth fighting for
      Dm                           Am
Still breathing, it's not too late
Dm                                   E 
We're all carrying one great burden, sharing one fate


I'm a white man living on a white man's street
I got the bones of the red man under my feet
A highway runs through the burial grounds
Past the oceans of cotton

I'm a white man looking in a black man's eyes
Wishing I'd never been one of the guys
Who pretended not to hear another white man's joke
Old times ain't forgotten

Chorus

Fiddle solo

I'm a white man living in a white man's nation
I think the man upstairs must have took a vacation
I still have faith, but I don't know why
Maybe it's the fire in my little girl's eyes

Maybe it's the fire in my little girl's eyes
