VERSE - (G C G C D G)

Hey Mr Brown
Are ya ready?
The biggest storm in U.S. history
Guess I know the answer to my question
Wish you’d saved us all the misery

VERSE - (G C G C D G)

Hey Mr Brown
How ya feelin’?
In your tie and your button down blue shirt
Well my eyes, they must be deceivin’
Your rolled up sleeves don’t cut it
For what it’s worth

CHORUS – (C G C G C Em Am C G)

I know I should be grateful
For all the things I’ve got
My family did survive the storm
Others they did not

Wish you saw it coming
And stayed to fight the fight
People left to die
And that ain’t right (G)

(Instrumental Break)

VERSE - (G C G C D G)

Hey Mr Brown
Can ya hear me?
I’ve been hangin from the rooftops for too long
I’ve seen the Lego levees do their failin
Tell me man……what the hell went wrong?
VERSE - (G C G C D G)

Hey Mr Brown
Can you see me?
I’ve been waiting for my rescue from the Dome
I guess you’re too busy with your preenin’
To care about our long long Road Home

VERSE - (G C G C D G)

Thanks Mr Brown
For the trailer
The one that smells and makes my kids nose bleed
CDC they said its safe as houses
Just keep the windows down
To help ya breathe

CHORUS – (C G C G C Em Am C G)

I know I should be grateful
For all the things I’ve got
My family did survive the storm
While others they did not

I wish you saw it coming
And stayed to fight the fight
People left to die
And that ain’t right (G)

(INSTRUMENTAL BREAK)

CHORUS – (C G C G C Em Am C G)

Brownie, I forgive you
It’s a heck of a job alright
You’re just a pawn in the game an’all
It’s as clear as black and white

I wish you saw it coming
Instead………it’s all too late
Now you’ll have to (C) stand and face your fate (G)

(CHORUS REPEAT)

Brownie, I forgive you
It’s a heck of a job alright
You’re just a pawn in the game an’all
It’s as clear as black and white

I wish you saw it coming
Instead………it’s all too late
Now you’ll have to (C) stand and face your fate (G)
Now you’ll have to (C) stand and face your fate (G)
