INTRO: D Em G A7 D 2x
B[D]aby hit the back door b[Em]reathiní real heavy
Said the [G]boys in the alley wouldnít [A7]leave her a[D]lone
[D]Mama did her make-up in a [Em]terrible hurry
She [A7]finally got ready but the [G]boys were [D]gone
[Em]Mama donít you worry, [F#m]nightís approachiní
Thereís a [G]hole in heaven where some [A7]sin slips [D]through
Just [D]close your eyes and [Em]dream real steady
[A7]Maybe just a little will [G]spill on [D]you
The D[D]ark [G]donít [Em]lie[F#m]
The Dreams come [D]true
[G]Could be a few will [Em]see you [D]through
[D]Old lady rose, look[Em]iní down her nose
At lon[G]ely miss lily hiding [A7]in the [D]hall
[D]Lilyís just praying for the [Em]trial to be over
Lady [A7]rose just waiting for the [G]ax to [D]fall
[Em]Show me off on the[F#m] way to town
The [G]skyís still shiny and the [A7]earthís still [D]brown
[D]Tell the judge Iím ready [Em]for the vases
[A7]Gonna dance in their faces when the [G]guitar [D]sounds
It [D]wonít [G]be [Em]long[F#m]
I'll be long [D]gone
I been [G]leaning toward the shadows [Em]all a[D]long

[Em]Tell me please when the [F#m]rollings over
[G]Me and my baby gonna [A7]have some [D]fun
[D]Bury our backs in a [Em]bed of clover
[A7]Smile in style while the [G]sun goes [D]down
The [D]Snake [G]eyes [Em]cry, [F#m]
Boxcars [D]sigh
[G]Sevenís stuck in the middle just [Em]wonderiní [D]why

[G]Maybe just a few will [Em]see you [D]through
[G]Maybe just a few will [Em]see you [D]through
