ou left your tears on the pillow that would not dry, You had a look in your eye to make a bad man cry There was the smile of an angel laid across your lips Though the woes of the world on your shoulders sit. I said I'll make you good, yes I'll make you right I've got the hands of a healer and the second sight But when it came to the push and it came to the shove I let you down I wasn't strong enough CHORUS I did you wrong girl, I did you wrong, I let you down girl and left you in the ground. Now the the words may be written but the message never read, The story may be told but the meaning left unsaid, And like the grains of the sand through my fingers you slipped, The flesh it may willing but the heart the heart is just a wreck. When you're standing in the shadows, it's hard to see the signs, Been staring to the east but the sun it just don't rise, You said head for the hills boy, run real fast, Show a clean set of heals and you don't look back. Well I ran till my feet bled and I fell to my knees The rising sun it looked down and it was laughing at me So I dragged myself back up and onto that path I kept on running and I never looked back

Oh my love my woes will been sung Wont you lay with me though my life is undone A promise was made, and a promise is kept, No matter the price, every word it was meant, My angel is dust on a cold dead pyre, Stirred by the breeze, my hate is on fire. And there ain't no angels where I'm bound Got grit in my teeth, an iron on my hip, A purpose bound tight as a dead mans grip Blood will be spilt, only pain i foresee, For those five angry souls fleeing from me And there ain't no angels where I'm bound And there ain't no angels where I'm bound Well I've run you to ground One , two, three have gone down, Now I'm coming for you I'll be takin’ you down, yes I'm takin’ you down. Oh my love you come back to lie, In my warm embrace in the dead of that fire Dragging five wooden boxes, three of them dead weight Lashed to my waist with heavy gauge chain, Every step that I take is bent to my will, Cos This journey ain't done till that last box is filled. And there ain't no angels where I'm bound No there ain't no angels where I'm bound

Five hungry brothers caught up in a fight deciding on the best way to slice up a pie Brother number one said I am top of the tree and half that pie is coming to me, To brother number two I give a quarter of that pie, brothers three and your you decide Brother number five wide eyed watched them all as he stood there hungry scraping the bowl. With a dead weight walking, a dead weight crawling, a dead weight lying on his back. Now none of them they noticed as time slipped by, as brother number one took a bigger slice of the pie, Man he was clever really played them for fools they never went hungry but they was never full, He keep them in line they didn't rock the boat as he tightened his grip upon their yoke, Only brother number five tried to carry the fight, but non of them were listening as he cried, With a dead weight walking, a dead weight crawling, a dead weight lying on our backs. Bridge Now winter it come it really bit to the bone and things weren't rosy in that brothers home, But brother number one he looked out for himself and them others they went hungry and they cried, them others they went hungry and they cried, them others they went hungry and they cried, them others they went hungry and they cried... With a dead weight walking, a dead weight crawling, a dead weight lying on our backs. With a dead weight walking, a dead weight crawling, a dead weight lying on our backs. Now that veil had been lifted and them brothers they could see how their own flesh and blood had brought them misery, But brother number he knew how to survive as reached down and pulled out a big 45 (all stop) Well there they all stood a spoiling for a fight waiting for the first one to blink an eye, And now they're all back at the start of this ride how it all ends, well you decide. With a dead weight walking, a dead weight crawling, a dead weight lying on your backs. With a dead weight walking, a dead weight crawling, a dead weight lying on your backs. With a dead weight walking, a dead weight crawling, a dead weight lying on your backs. With a dead weight walking, a dead weight crawling, a dead weight lying on your backs.

You are the sunlight at the edge of the world, You are the snowfall deep on the mountain side, You are the warm breeze on a sunny, summers, Sunday afternoon You are the rainfall far in the hills tonight. Chorus And I will dance under the moon and the stars all night, For just one kiss of those blood red lips. You are as wild of the moor on a ragged winters morn, You are as far as the eye can see on a long clear day, You are the north wind as it rips along the cliffs so high, you are the waves pounding hard on the shore below. Chorus You are the starlight sprayed across a velvet sky, you are the birdsong dancing light on the spring air, You are the warm embrace of the morning suns first touch, You are the moonlight at the edge of the world tonight. Chorus

Preacher Man 03:56
You want to know that look in my eyes You want to hear them words as I cry, You're going to burn, You're gonna burn, burn, burn, burn You want to hear them words as I preach You want to know the length of my reach You're going down, under the ground, down down, down I'm casting out them hard luck days And praying on your every fear Marching up that shining path And burning with a fearful fearful wrath I'm gonna shake that dust from your soul, I'm gonna drag you across them red hot coals You're gonna burn, You're gonna burn,a burn, burn, burn I'm there shaking my fist at you still I'm gonna make you bend to my will You're going down under the ground, down, down, down CHORUS BREAK BREAKDOWN You are all sinners let me hear you all say You are all sinners let me hear you all say You are all sinners let me hear you all say You are all sinners let me hear you all say We are all sinners hallelujah we say We are all sinners hallelujah we say We are all sinners hallelujah we say We are all sinners hallelujah we say CHORUS TWICE TO FINISH WITH SIX REPEATS OF 'Fearful' at the end hanging on the A chord.

The River 03:38
Take me down to the river, Bury me under the water, Lay me down on that stony ground, Deep under the water. Leave my bones to the river, To wash away my sins, Say a few kind words by the waters edge, Down by the river. I was not a saint, but I was not a bad man, Neither was I lost, nor did I have a grand plan, I was just a plain ordinary man. Tell my story to the river, Watch them words as they wash away Leave a sweet smile as a lullaby, Down by that river. I was never rich, but I was not a poor man, Neither was I bound, nor did I have a free hand, I was just a plain ordinary man. Take my memories to the river, But hold them close to your heart, For when you leave then I'll be forgot Down in that river. I was not a saint, but I was not a bad man, Neither was I lost, nor did I have a grand plan, I was just a plain ordinary man. I was never rich, but I was not a poor man, Neither was I bound, nor did I have a free hand, I was just a plain ordinary man, I was just a plain ordinary man.

Gone Crazy 02:31
Well bless my soul you got me on a roll, I'm burning as hot as the sun and I'm rattling like a drum, I'm all at sea and shaking like a leaf, I've got two left feet and my heart is skipping a beat. Well I love my whiskey and I love the sea, I love my guitar and the air I breathe, I love my mother and my father too, But when it comes to you, I'm a man gone crazy. Well shake my soul you got me on a roll, Don't know my up from my down or if my feet are on the ground, you got me lost for words, feeling a little absurd, I been howlin at the moon like you aint ever heard. Well I love my music and I love to dance, I love a wild part and a little romance, I love my friends like I love my kin, But when it comes to you, I'm a woman gone crazy. MID SECTION You knock me down, flip me upside down You Spin me right around and turn inside out, Got me going crazy, you make kinda hazy But when it comes to you I just gone crazy/I've always been crazy. You got me screaming like a loon, You got me falling in a swoon, You got me forgetting where I've been You got me all of a spin You got me dancing on my toes You got me shakin off the woes You got me down on my knees You got me starting to believe Well I love my freedom and I love to laugh I'll always believe in taking jokes to far I love my friends and I love my kin But when it comes to you I just gone crazy, But when it comes to you I just gone crazy, But when it comes to you I just gone crazy, REPEAT...

Tight Times and hard lines, will strip you to the bone and leave you blind Down days and wayward ways will bring you to your knees with nothing to say. A wise head with tired legs will carry you so far and to the end Time flies and hope hides in the answers that you seek in every sign If you ride wild horses, and burn down bridges, If you lay down with daemons, and take flight from the reasons Low light and poor sight will loose you in the end with no fight Loose lines and strong tides will set you all adrift to late to find If you ride wild horses, and burn down bridges, If you lay down with daemons, and take flight from the reasons You will be undone... MID Eight Laying Face down in the dirt, beating with my fists for all it's worth, Laying Face down in the dirt, beating with my fists for all it's worth, If you ride wild horses, and burn down bridges, If you lay down with daemons, and take flight from the reasons You will be undone...
