My Father's House
Recorded by Emmylou Harris
Written by Bruce Springsteen

C F C
Last night I dreamed that I was a child
G7
Out where the pines grow wild and tall
C F C
I was trying to make it home through the forest
G7 C
Before the dark-ness falls

F C
I heard the wind rustling through the trees
G7
And ghostly voices rose from the fields
C F C
I ran with my heart pounding down that broken path
G7 C
With the devil snappin' at my heels

F C
I broke through the trees and there in the night
G7
My father's house stood shining hard and bright
C F C
The branches and brambles tore my clothes and scratched my arms
G7 C
But I ran till I fell shaking in his arms

F C
I awoke and I imagined the hard things that pulled us apart
G7
Will never again sir tear us from each other's hearts
C F C
I got dressed and to that house I did ride from out on the road
G7 C
I could see his windows shining in light

F C
I walked up the steps and stood on the porch

A woman I didn't recognize
G7
Came and spoke to me through the chained door
C F C
I told her my story and who I'd come for
G7 C
She said I'm sorry but no one by that name lives here anymore

F C
My father's house shines hard and bright
G7
It stands like a beacon calling me in the night
C F C
Calling and calling so cold and alone
G7 C
Shining across this dark highway where all our sins lie unatoned
