White Flag was mostly written on the highway between Eugene and Bend, Oregon.

I made a wrong turn along the way and got pulled over by a cop. He told me I was driving away from my destination and sent me on my way. I played the show that night with pneumonia and wearing a back brace. It was not a good show.

I played White Flag the next night and I've played it pretty much every show since then.



Chords: A D Em

If it's true that this would happen before even time began then I guess I'll just surrender because I'm doing all I can
Yes in vain I've risen early just to stumble home to late
ignoring all the factors that determine my fate

I'm gonna raise the white flag
I'm gonna raise the black flag too
I'm gonna raise the white flag
and sing this song for you

you see these words they are not weapons
but these streets brew honesty
and we're all soldiers a journey
yes we're all pilgrims you and me

so may all fear be forgotten as the memories fade away
may the whole world join us in this song as we dance on yesterday
