INTRO: D Em   G A7 D 2x

 D                      Em
Baby hit the back door breathin’ real heavy
         G                          A7         D
Said the boys in the alley wouldn’t leave her alone
D                         Em
Mama did her make-up in a terrible hurry
    A7                        G         D
She finally got ready but the boys were gone
Em                    F#m
Mama don’t you worry, night’s approachin’
          G                         A7        D
There’s a hole in heaven where some sin slips through
     D                   Em
Just close your eyes and dream real steady
A7                       G        D
Maybe just a little will spill on you

     D   G     Em    F#m
The Dark don’t lie
The Dreams come true
G                   Em      D
Could be a few will see you through

D                  Em
Old lady rose, lookin’ down her nose
      G                    A7     D
At lonely miss lily hiding in the hall
D                           Em
Lily’s just praying for the trial to be over
     A7                        G     D
Lady rose just waiting for the ax to fall
Em                F#m
Show me off on the way to town
    G                         A7            D
The sky’s still shiny and the earth’s still brown
D                        Em
Tell the judge I’m ready for the vases
A7                                  G      D
Gonna dance in their faces when the guitar sounds

   D     G  Em    F#m
It won’t be long
I'll be long gone
       G                          Em   D
I been leaning toward the shadows all along


D   Em   F#m  G  D 2x
Em  F#m  G    D
D   Em   F#m  G  D

D                 Em
Those in the know say so it goes
    G                  A7       D
You plan on reapin’, you better sow
D                        Em
You plan on sleepin, You better keep movin’
A7                            G        D
Sleepin’ ain’t allowed around here you know
Em                      F#m
Tell me please when the rollings over
G                    A7        D
Me and my baby gonna have some fun
D                   Em
Bury our backs in a bed of clover
A7                       G        D
Smile in style while the sun goes down

    D     G    Em   F#m
The Snake eyes cry, 
Boxcars sigh
G                                Em        D
Seven’s stuck in the middle just wonderin’ why
               Em    F#m
The Dark don’t lie
The Dreams come true
G               Em     D
All it takes is one or two
G                     Em      D
Maybe just a few will see you through
G                     Em      D
Maybe just a few will see you through
