Am F C G
We live in a backwards place, it is anybody’s guess over everybody’s take
Am F C G
The ballots have all come in,, count them up write them down, see nobody wins
Am F C G F
Prayer has lost its tongue, ‘till the walls fall down and the sounds of the trumpets come
Blowing from the stage above

C G Am F
He don’t buy, he don’t deal, he don’t make his money off tips
You live that way you can’t travel quite so light, there ain’t no room on the ride
C G Am F
He don’t bank, he don’t loan, you can’t take no money where you’re going
You can’t get around Saint Peter, slip one by without him knowing or not

The devil will have his due, it’ll be about the time the skies rain truth

The gavel will come straight down, no stops in between, no tour of the town

It all seems so not right to the lengths of the ear and the limits of the mind, but I

Have thrown my heart into the fire


(BREAK) Am - G - C

Affiliation is half the fun, ‘till we sync our eyes to the barrel of the gun

Situation is all it takes to believe what you didn’t, and evolve to your fate

Yeah, I can lie in the mix I know, so I gave what I had to the one who deserves it most

He gave up all he had for us

Beautiful Easy
flow to this song. It would be a great sound bed for any number of travelling tunes, an open road and a big, settled sky.

Like the quiet, humble lyrics.

Cheers now

Easy going feel to this. Warm and expressive vocal. I like the guitar that comes in at 2:20. Lyrics that have something to say. Much enjoyed.
