Verse 
Am                               G            Am 
Come gather round me children, a story I will tell 
Am                                   G            Am 
I've been around since Jesus met the woman at the well 
C                           Am              C             Am 
I've walked these roads ten thousand years, I'm a ragtime millionaire 
Am                                       G                      Am 
I'm the rake and the ramblin saint. I am the man from God knows where 

Am                                  G                 Am 
Oh, they hung me in Downpatrick, up near St.Patrick's tomb 
Am                                          G                        Am 
But my ghost rose up in the peat fire smoke toward the rising of the moon 
C                           Am                C                Am 
Now as I drift through your villages, all the maidens stop and stare 
Am                                          G                  Am 
"There goes old Tom, the vagabond, he's the man from God knows where" 

C                       Am         C                   G 
So it's rise up all you ancestors, and dance upon your graves 
C                      Am           C                Am 
I've come to hear your voices, now, so maybe I'll be saved 
Am                                     G              Am 
Cursed are we who forget the past, but pray and don't despair 
Am                                               G                  Am 
My song might haunt your dreams tonight, I'm the man from God knows where 

Am                                         G   Am 
I've slept beneath your bridges, near your oil refineries 
Am                                G           Am 
I've gambled on your river boats, Shenandoah; Kanakee 
C                            Am            C                               Am 
I'm the homeless lad, I'm an orphan child, leaves of grass sewn through my hair 
Am                                       G                  Am 
Yeah, me and old Walt Whitman, we're the men from God knows where 

Am                                        G           Am 
I've rode the rods on steam trains with a banjo on my knee 
Am                                 G                 Am 
While the voice of Stephen Foster, whisperd songs to me 
C                                Am                C                       Am 
Of the storefront church and the chain gang choir; Black sorrow filled the air 
Am                                              G                  Am 
Then Stephen died on a doss house floor, like a man from God knows where 

Am                                        G                Am 
I've heard the sound of Indian drums I've heard the bugles blow 
Am                            G                Am 
Before they re'wrote history, into a Wild West Show 
C                    Am       C                     Am 
My kin sailed toward America, to steal their Indian ground 
Am                      G                      Am 
They passed Bill Cody's circus ships, European bound 

Am                                  G                Am 
So lock up all your daughters, your whiskey and your gold 
Am                                  G                       Am 
I have come to claim my bounty, for the lies that I've been told 
    C                     Am               C                     Am 
And as I look out on this crowd tonight, I see most of you don't care 
Am                                             G                  Am 
Come lift your glass, reveal your past, to the man from God knows where
