Verse 1:

	Em                G
	At my house I've got no shackles
	Am                 C
	You can come and look if you want to
	Em                   G
	In the halls you'll see the mantles
	Am                      C
	Where the light shines dim all around you
	Am                   D
	And the streets are paved with gold and if
	Am                D                  Em
	Someone asks you,   you can call my name

[repeat intro pattern 2X]

Verse 2:

	You are just a thought that someone
	Somewhere somehow feels you should be here
	And it's so for real to touch
	To smell, to feel, to know where you are here
	And the streets are paved with gold and if
	Someone asks you, you can call my name
	You can call my name
	                      Em    C   Am   D
	I hear you calling my name  yeah    all right now

[repeat intro]

Verse 3:

	By the time that I'm through singing
	The bells from the schools of walls will be ringing
	More confusions, blood transfusions
	The news today will be the movies for tomorrow
	And the water's turned to blood, and if
	You don't think so
	Go turn on your tub
	And it it's mixed with mud
	You'll see it turn to gray
	And you can call my name
	I hear you call my name

Coda:

[drum break]

[multiple overdubbed guitar solos over Em; original release cuts off
 abruptly, reissues fade out]
