 B
 Words get written. Words get twisted.
Old meanings move in the drift of time
 A
 Lift the flickering torches.
See gentle shadows change
 B
 the features of the faces
cut in unmoving stone
 D5E5A5G5B
 Bad mouth on a prayer day, hope no one's listening.
 D5E5G5A5F#
 Roots down in the wet clay, branches glistening.

Riff

Verse 2:
True disciples
carrying that message
to colour just a little
with their personal touch.
Home-spun fancy weavers
and naked half-believers
Crusades and creeds
descend like fiery flakes of snow.

Bad mouth on a prayer day, hope no one's listening
Roots down in the wet clay, branches glistening

 F#
 Roots to Branches.
Roots to Branches.
Roots to Branches.

Solo around riff in key of B

Verse 3:
In wet and windy priest-holes.
Grand in vast cathedrals
High on lofty minarets
or in the temples of doom
I hope the old man's got his face on.
He'd better be some quick change artist.
Suffer little children
to make their minds up soon.

Bad mouth on a prayer day, hope no one's listening.
Roots down in the wet clay, branches glistening.

 F#
 Roots to Branches.
Roots to Branches.
Roots to Branches.

Switch on F# B

 F#
 Roots to Branches.
Roots to Branches.
Roots to Branches.
