You the hat he wore to market, I the jacket filled with holes

This old dark machine, it shakes and it shudders
BbBb chord/EbEb chord
Pulls to the left, then dies near the gutter
FF chord
But still in the road, the traffic is silent
CmCm chord
The people they stare, and then they turn violent

If they should touch, the hem of your dress
CmCm chord
I would rise like a lion, strike out again
EbEb chord
The faithful they wait, the faithful they wait
BbBb chord/EbEb chord
By the sign

Carried far across the mountain, to a kingdom never bound
