D                              Bm
My name is Dodge  but then you know that
     G                                 D                      A

It's written on the chart there at the foot end of the of the bed
     D                            Bm
They think I'm blind that I can't read it
     G                            D               A
I've read it every word and every word it says is death
   Bm                      G               D
So confession Is that the reason that you came
       Bm                    G                A

Get it off my chest before I check out of the game
          Bm                      G                    D
Since you mention it well there's thirteen things I'll name
Em       Em/F#        G              A            Bm
Thirteen crosses high above the cold Missouri waters
D               Bm
August 49 North Montana
    G                         D             A
The hottest day on record the forest tinder dry
          D                 Bm
Lightning strikes in the mountains
I was crew chief at the jump base
  D                     A
I prepared the boys to fly
         Bm         G            D
Pick the drop zone C47 comes in low
         Bm            G                  A 
Feel the tap upon your leg that tells you go
         Bm           G         D
See the circle of the fire down below
Em      Em/F# G                 A             Bm
Fifteen of us dropped above the cold Missouri waters
           D             Bm
Gauged the fire I'd seen bigger
     G                              D              A
So I ordered them to side hill we'd fight it from below
     D                      Bm
We'd have our backs to the river
             G                      D             A
We'd have it licked by morning even if we took it slow
        Bm                      G           D
But the fire crowned jumped the valley just ahead
          Bm                 G               A
There was no way down headed for the ridge instead
    Bm                           G                D
Too big to fight it we'd have to fight that slope instead
Em     Em/F#    G                A             Bm
Flames one step behind above the cold Missouri waters
        D                    Bm
Sky had turned red smoke was boiling
Two hundred yards to saftey
          D               A
Death was fifty yards behind
        D               Bm
I don't know why I just thought it
  G                                  D              A
I struck a match to waist high grass running out of time
         Bm             G                   D        
Tried to tell them step into this fire I've set
         Bm                  G                  A
We can't make it this is the only chance you'll get
But they cursed me
            G            D
Ran for the rocks above instead
Em    Em/F#         G                A             Bm 
I lay face down and prayed above the cold Missouri waters
     D                    Bm
Then when I rose like the phoenix
In that world reduced to ashes
          D               A 
There was none but two survived
  D                             Bm
I stayed that night and one day after
Carried bodies to the river
          D            A
Wondering how I stayed alive
          Bm             G                    D
Thirteen stations of the cross to mark their fall
     Bm             G                   A                         
I've had my say I'll confess to nothing more
     Bm                            G            D 
I'll join them now those that they left me long before
Em       Em/F#   G              A             Bm
Thirteen crosses high above the cold Missouri waters
