     Dm                                       G

Note: While the G chord is being strummed, you can
      do some hammer-ons to jazz it up a little bit.

F > A  (x2)


Verse 1:
    Dm
Oh, Pappy left a chair like he's still sittin' there
       G
Once I almost saw him make his move
      Dm
Brave Indian who never changes his mood
     G
In a painting on the wall right there


Chorus:
    F                         A
Oh, how long 'til the morning wakes
    F                          A
Oh, how long 'til the medicine takes


Verse 2:
    Dm
Oh, Sally buffalo in the apartment just below
       G
Just a bein' without a care
    Dm
Oh, children from my brood they come and bring me food
      G
Maybe open up a window for air


Chorus:
    F                              A
Oh, just now I smell the cornbread bake
    F                                 A
Oh, now, now, now I feel the medicine take

Occasionally, JB walks up the D string during the A chord:

    D               A        G

D  A         G
   Just like home
D            A          G             D
   Where the stray dogs go through it all

G     G     A     G     G    A
Still right here, still just here,
             D
Brave little friend

Verse 3:
Well, we got a party goin' on many spirits strong
Ain't preacher just a happy to meet ya
Half a bottle 'neath the bed keep our spirits fed
My hat's off to you, to you and you

And now our brave friends, too,
   dancing circles through the room
And a broom and a radio and a twistin out a dos-e-do
Brand new day, the whole world's goin'
Whole room's goin' so

Chorus:
Just now, don't hesitate (hesitate)
Oh, taste the morning break (morning break)
Sweet, sweet, young honeycomb (honeycomb)
On, now, now, now just like home (just like home)

Bridge:
    D          A         G
Oh, just like, just like home
D            A          G
   Where the stray dogs go
D       A      G
Oh, oh, rest my bones
D         A             G           D
   Like a fresh skipped stone to it all

G     G     A     G     G    A
Still right here, still just here,
G     G    A                  D
Still just here, brave, brave friend
