[Verse]
F                          A#                         F  A#
 I've been knockin' on the door that holds the throne
F                          A#                     F  A#
 I've been lookin' for the map that leads me home
C                       A#
 I've been stumblin' on good hearts turned to stone
C                  A#
 The road of good intentions has gone dry as bone


[Chorus]

 We take care of our own

 Wherever this flag's flown
F                 A#
 We take care of our own


[Verse]
F                A#                                       F  A#
 From Chicago to New Orleans, from the muscle to the bone
F                 A#                     F  A#
 From the shotgun shack to the Superdome
C                       A#
 We yelled "help" but the cavalry stayed home
C                   A#
 There ain't no-one hearing the bugle blown


[Chorus]
F                 A#
 We take care of our own
F                 A#
 We take care of our own

 We take care of our own

[Verse]
F                A#
 Where the eyes, the eyes with the will to see
F                       A#
 Where the hearts, that run over with mercy
F                          A#
 Where's the love that has not forsaken me
F                      A#
 Where's the work that set my hands, my soul free
F                           A#
 Where's the spirit that'll reign, reign over me
F                          A#
 Where's the promise, from sea to shining sea
F                          A#
 Where's the promise, from sea to shining sea
C              A#
 Wherever this flag is flown
C              A#
 Wherever this flag is flown
C              A#
 Wherever this flag is flown


[Chorus]
F                 A#
 We take care of our own
F                 A#
 We take care of our own
F                     A#
 Wherever this flag's flown
F                 A#
 We take care of our own


[Chorus]
F                 A#
 We take care of our own
F                 A#
 We take care of our own
F                     A#
 Wherever this flag's flown
F                A#
 We take care of our own
