Slaid Cleaves-Welding Burns
Album-Still Fighting The War

G                F      C                G
My father was a welder, down at the navy yard
G                F                 C                  G
Up on the north atlantic, where the winters come down hard
G                F         C            G
A union job some overtime, nobody would complain
G                      F             C                     G
He went to work with a humble pride, through the snow and rain

Chorus:
G                F        C                     G
Some things your born to, some things you gotta learn
G                             F              C                G
My father built his world on bone muscle and blood and welding burns

After work he did some drunken', he'd get a title rough
Just to take the edges off, but he never got enough

He'd hang his coat up by the door, and light a cigarette
Mama would take his supper out, turn off the tv set

Chorus:
Some things your born to, some things you gotta learn
My father built his world on bone muscle and blood and welding burns

D
I can see them down at leighs mills pond
D                               C
With the august sun warming her brown skin
D
He promised he would take her away
D                                 C              G
But i think he knew even way back then, way back then

Mama said they're hiring no need to graduate
Maybe your dad could make a call to the 788

I always thought I'd get away, I thought I could rise above
I don't remember anymore, what i was dreaming of

Chorus: 2x
Some things your born to, some things you gotta learn
My father built his world on bone muscle and blood and welding burns
