Wish It Was True
The White Buffalo
My take on this wonderful song, recently heard on Sons of Anarchy. The Cadd9 is probably actually an F or a variation thereof, but I find it easier to add the finger picking with this, and it sounds pretty true to the original. Standard tuning, capo 7th. G Cadd9 G Mother, Try to do right by you To do what you asked me to D G I did wrong and I knew. Mother I tried to behave for you Now I'm a digging a grave for you It was all I could do. D C Find a way back home, Make everything new G But I wish it was true. Father, well I'll give my soul to you I came in blind folded for you It was all that I knew. Open your arms and I'll fly out of hell up to you I wish it was true. Am C Boy come on out from the cold G Your lost outside there don't you know D It's not what you say it was you do Am Just keep wishing your wishes are true C Well your dreams there reality now G There's no pain there's no misery D Just polish the blood and the bruise C For there's just no way you can lose. G But I wish it was true. Country, I was a solider for you I did what you asked me to It was wrong and you knew. Country, now I'm just a stranger to you A number a name it's true Throw me away when you're through. D C Home of the brave and free the, the red white and blue G But I wish it was true.
