A - - -
D - A - Autumn leaves upon the breeze
G - D - Rustling through the trees.
G - D - Branches creak with groans
G - A - While the wind whispers and moans.
D - A - This is my heart, my life, my soul.
G - D - This is my home where I am whole.
C - G - This is the place I’ll take my stand --
D - A - Soulwood’s power in my hand!
D - A - There is birdsong in the air,
G - D - Frantic squirrels everywhere --
G - D - They prepare for winter’s chill
G - A - Like the black bear on the hill. (chorus)
D - A - Squash and gourds colored by sun.
G - D - The rivers laugh and run.
G - D - There’s a warning from the crow:
G - A - Here are strangers – friend or foe? (chorus)
D - A - If they’re here to take my lands
G - D - Or to make other demands,
G - D - It is blood that they will find --
G - A - I will not give up what is mine! (chorus x 2)
D - - - In my hand!
