[Intro]
G D Em Bm C D G

[Verse 1]
G      D                Em   Bm
Way up north, where the snow flies
        C         D      G      D
And the sun don't hardly shine
G             D    Em      Bm
If it weren't for, my true love
         C         G      D
I'd have long ago lost my mind
                          G      D   
I'd have long ago lost my mind


[Verse 2]
        G          D         Em         Bm
There's good folks here and good folks there
C         D       G    D
most everywhere I go
         G    D     Em       Bm
But the land of my heart is down
          C           G      D
where the snow white cotton grows
                             G    D
where the snow white cotton grows


[Chorus]
         C          Bm            Am      G
When the river runs over from the melting snow
        C           D      G
we will take to the higher ground
         C          Bm                Am         G     
when the water goes down again, we'll saddle our old paint
C        D        G
we'll be homeward bound
       C       Bm      D        G
me and my love will be homeward bound


[Solo]
G D Em Bm C D G D G D Em Bm C G D G


[Verse 3]
G                 D                 Em         Bm
Heartstrings hold tighter than the roots of a live oak tree
C               D       G     D
holding through tornado wind
G            D        Em           Bm
tougher than timber, stronger than steel
        C              G         D
they'll guide me back southward again
                                 G     D
they'll guide me back southward again


[Chorus]
         C          Bm            Am      G
When the river runs over from the melting snow
        C           D      G
we will take to the higher ground
         C          Bm                Am         G     
when the water goes down again, we'll saddle our old paint
C        D        G
we'll be homeward bound
       C       Bm      D        G
me and my love will be homeward bound


[Outro]
C Bm Am G C D G
