TROUBLED TIMES

G D E B
maybe johnny eagle stole some cowboy boots and raced back to Pine Ridge with a car in hot pursuit
C B C D
with no sirens / with no lights / with dark sunglasses hiding their eyes
G D C --->D
kicking' up dust in these troubled times X2
___________________________________________________________
G D E B
the people tried to rise up but their leaders were corrupt they hired goons to shoot them down
C B C D
and the FBI supplied them with armor piercing rounds at least sixty people got put into the ground
G D C --->D
spillin' lots of blood in these troubled times X2
__________________________________________________________
E C D ---- E D
what would you do to protect your family when you see a car chasing your friend and
then they get out and start shooting you would assume that this was just another attack
more death squad goons / you'd get your guns and
E D C --- C D you'd shoot back / you'd shoot back
___________________________________________________________
G D E B
when the smoke cleared / there were two bodies on the ground someone came and fired one more round
C B C D
when they searched the car / their FBI badges were found
G D C --->D
things keep getting worse in these troubled times X2
___________________________________________________________
G D E B
the helicopters came / everybody dropped their guns but only three were taken in
C B C D
two of them had the charges dropped the judge said it was clearly self defense
G D C --->D
but this wasn't enough in these troubled times X2
_____________________________________________________________
E C D ---- E D
they decided to use / this as an excuse to strike a deadly blow
they knew that / all they needed to do was to take a leader out
demonstrate how far they'd go and the power that they hold
they'd let the resistance know
E D C --- C D that there was no hope / that there was no hope
___________________________________________________________
C D G --- E D C (single strums?)
leonard peltier wasn't there / but they found a bunch of kids that said he was
and they forced myrtle poor bear / to swear that she saw him shoot the gun
johnny eagle's pick up truck / turned into leonard's van
C D (downstrokes)
lie after lie after lie after lie after lie
G D C / G C G
anything to get their man X2
___________________________________________________________
E C
and today / the teenager's say that they were forced to lie and myrtle admits that they were never lovers and she's never met the guy but they told her they would take her children away if she didn't say what they told her to say and leonard has been in prison from 1976 until
D
today….
G D C
yeah, we're still living in troubled times X4 (END ON D)
