Cautious Man  Bruce Springsteen



[G]Bill Horton was a cautious [C]man of the road
He walked [G]lookin' over his shoulder and remained faithful to its code[D]
[G]When something caught his eye [C]he'd measure his need
[G]And then very carefu[D]lly he'd proc[G]eed
Billy met a yound girl in the [C]early days of May
It was t[G]here in her arms he let his ca[Bm]utiousness slip a[C]way
[G]In their lovers twilight as the [C]evening sky grew dim
He'd l[G]ay back in her arms an[D]d laugh what had happened to [G]him
On his [C]right hand Billy tatooed the word love
And on his [Bm]left hand was the word fear
And [G]in which hand he held his fate was never clea[D]r
C[G]ome Indian summer he took his young [C]lover for his bride
And with [G]own hands built a great house [D]down by the riversid[G]e
| G | C | G | G | C D |

Now [G]Billy was an honest man [C]he wanted to do what was right
He w[G]orked hard to fill their lives with happy days and loving nig[D]hts
A[G]lone on his knees in the darkness for s[C]teadiness he'd pray
F[G]or he knew in a restless hea[D]rt the seed of betrayal l[G]ay

One night [C]Billy awoke from a terrible dream [Bm]callin' his wife's name
She lay br[G]eathing beside him in a peaceful sleep a thousand miles a[D]way
[G]He got dressed in the moonlight and d[C]own to the highway he strode
When he g[G]ot there he didn[D]'t find nothing but roa[G]d
| G | C | C | Bm7 | Bm7

Billy felt a c[G]oldness rise up inside him [C]that he couldn't name
Just as the w[G]ords tattooed 'cross his knuckles he k[Bm]new would always r[C]emain
At their b[G]edside he brushed the hair from his wife's face
as the [C]moon shone on her skin so white
Filling their r[G]oom with the beauty o[D]f God's fallen li[G]ght
