TRAIL OF TEARS was not a metaphor. It was an American Holocaust. Michael Jeffrey helped me with this track.

TRAIL OF TEARS

Am Bm/A C/A Am C/A Bm (3) E
A
CHORUS - Well, the trees don’t grow
And the grass don’t grow
E
And the flowers won’t grow on a Trail of Tears

You can see it from the sky
You can smell it in the wind
You can feel it in your heart like a dying twin
F E
When will it end

          Dm

You can talk about the Nazis
killing all the Jews and Gypsies
Am E A
So self-righteous. So self-rightious

You can talk about your Okies
Going from place to no place
Should I warn you about California

CHORUS

                              Dm

There ought to be a flower
For every tear that fell there
C Am E Am
But a flower won’t grow on a trail of bitter tears

CHORUS - Na na na na

CHORUS

Well, this is now and that was then
Do you really think it could happen again
Where and when?

Heyenya heyen heyya…

CHORUS

On this song you sound even more like Chapin. Great song btw - lead vocals are too loud, but awesome job nonetheless. The backing vocals are brilliant. The whole song is brilliant!
