I saw them do this song in concert and just loved it. I hope you do to. 
 
 
Intro    G     C9     G     C9 
 
                                                
 Em                                C9                 G 
We came up from Sheffield and they put us on the line 
            D                  G       C9              D 
You could smell the powder burning and man it hurt my eyes 
      Em 
They knew them boys were tired and weak 
         C9                     G 
We were fresh and we were strong 
      D                G             C9                  D 
We could not wait to blast away and make our presence known 
   C9          G             C9              G         
Every time I took my aim and got one in my sight 
Em                              C9                D 
In my heart I knew the way and this way was not right 
 
Chorus 
    C9             G                    D            G 
I guess my daddy would be proud but my mama she's ashamed 
 C9               G                D 
And I know deep down we need a change 
        C9               G 
Them Northern boys are friends of mine  
          D                 G 
But I've got my Southern pride 
        Em                           C      D 
Im standing here a fightin wishin there         was another side 
 
Fill in   G     C9 
 
       Em 
We burned each others crops and fields 
     C9                  G 
And took the very best  
    D              G                      C9             D 
We fought our way back and forth and they put us to the test 
   Em 
I know that some things were wrong 
     C9                      G 
But what gave them the right 
     D                      G           C9              D 
To point their righteous fingers and expect us not to fight 
 C9          G                  C9              G 
We all cried on the night they burned Atlanta down 
Em                             C9                  D 
How much more can we take and still stand our ground 
 
Chorus 
     C9             G                   D             G 
I guess my daddy would be proud but my mama she's ashamed 
 C9              G                 D 
And I know deep down we need a change 
       C9                 G   
Them colored boys are friends of mine 
         D                 G 
But I've got my Southern pride 
 Em                                  C        D 
I'm standing here a fightin wishin there          was another side 
 
Fill in    G   C9   G    C9 
 
 Em 
In four years the smoke had cleared 
       C9                   G 
And I went back to the farm 
          D           G                 C9                D 
Little brother met me at the bridge and he held out his arms 
        Em                              C9                    G 
He was thin and weak and wounded and dressed in Yankee blue 
         D           G             C9              D 
Well I cried and I held him and together we both knew 
    C9               G               C9            G 
If it could be done over there would be a better way 
           Em                          C9                D 
Still one family and one nation oh but what a price we pay 
 
Chorus 
   C9              G                    D              G 
I guess my daddy would be proud but my mama she's ashamed 
 C9              G                 D 
And I know deep down we need a change 
     C9                       G       
Now some of them boys were friends of mine 
     D                    G 
But dang this Southern pride 
       Em                          C       D                      G 
I'm standing here a cryin wishin there          was another side 
C9                                    G 
      I'm wishin there was another side 
C9                                G 
      Wishin there was another side  
 
Outro:     C9     G     C9      G
