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
