...Down
VERSE1e e g e e D/a D/a A e e g e e D/a A
by the Mississippi, Beside the Grainbelt rails, Where   
 e e g e e D/a D/a A e e g e e D/a A
Aero-freight charters sit beside the hiking trails, Where
A Sec1e E7 E7 E7 E7 E7 G A  e E7 E7 E7 E7 E7 G D G D
two rivers meet, one from the woods and one from the plains, Where the
 e E7 E7 E7 E7 E7 G A  e E7 E7 E7 E7 E7 G D G D 
great white fathers built a fort to fortify their claims
CHORUS1e e g e e D/a D/a A e e g e e D/a A
What was I to think? That the world was BLACK AND WHITE, or
 e e g e e D/a D/a A e e g e e D/a A
Was it? Was it red and blue?

...Now
VERSE2e e g e e D/a D/a A e e g e e D/a A
Highway 61 heads north, a pathway to Duluth, And
 e e g e e D/a D/a A e e g e e D/a A
Highway 61 flows south digging up our roots, Where
A Sec2e E7 E7 E7 E7 E7 G A   e E7 E7 E7 E7 E7 G D G D 
two cultures meet, One came to claim and one came in chains, Where the
 e E7 E7 E7 E7 E7 G A   e E7 E7 E7 E7 E7 G D G D
great white masters built their fame, on other peoples pain
CHORUS2e e g e e D/a D/a A e e g e e D/a A
What was I to think? That the world was BLACK AND WHITE, or
 e e g e e D/a D/a A e e g e e D/a A
Was it? Was it gray and blue?

I was just a lad,

teachers pledged the flag

And we all pledged it too

VERSE3e e g e e D/a D/a A e e g e e D/a A
out in California. In Eighteen-Forty-Six.
 e e g e e D/a D/a A e e g e e D/a A
Among the haciendas built of warm adobe bricks. Where
A Sec3e E7 E7 E7 E7 E7 G A  e E7 E7 E7 E7 E7 G D G D 
two cultures meet, One from the warmth and one from the cold, Where the
 e E7 E7 E7 E7 E7 G A   e E7 E7 E7 E7 E7 G D G D 
great white generals grabbed the land, along with all the gold
CHORUS3e e g e e D/a D/a A e e g e e D/a A
What was I to think? That the world was BLACK AND WHITE, or
 e e g e e D/a D/a A e e g e e D/a A
was it red, white and blue?
