Southern Man


by Neil Young
I:	( Dm - - - / Bb - Gm - /  x2  //)

  C:	Southern man, better keep your head,
Don't forget what your good book says.
Southern change gonna come at last,
Now your crosses are burnin' fast ...  southern man.

Dm - - - / Fmaj7/C - - - / Bb - - - / G7 - - - / x4 //
(Intro)

  V:	I saw cotton and I saw black,
Tall white mansions and little shacks,
Southern man when will you pay them back?
I heard screamin' and bull whips crackin'.
How long, how long? Ah!

Dm - - - / Bb - Gm - / x2 / x2 / A - - - /     / A7 - - - /    //
(Intro)

(Solo)

  C:	Southern man, better keep your head,
Don't forget what your good book says.
Southern change gonna come at last,
Now your crosses are burnin' fast ... southern man.

  V:	Lillie Bell, your hair is golden brown,
I've seen your black man comin' round,
Swear by God, I'm gonna cut him down!
I heard screamin' and bull whips crackin'.
How long, how long? Ah!
