This Street, That Man, This Life  Cowboy Junkies

Intro: C Am C Am
This [C]street holds its s[Am]ecrets
like a [C]cobra holds its [Am]kill
This [C]street minds its b[Am]usiness
like a [C]jailer minds his [Am]jail
That [F]house there is [G]haunted
That[C] door's a portal to [F]hell
[C]This street holds its [G]secrets very [C]wel[Am]l[C] [Am]
That[C] man wears his [Am]skin
like a [C]dancer wears her [Am]veils
That[C] man stalks his [Am]victims
like a [C]cancer stalks a [Am]cell
[F]That man's soul has [G]left him
his heart's as [C]deadly as a rusty [F]nail
[C]That man sheds his [G]skin like a v[C]eil[Am] [C] [Am]
[Dm]Lord, you play a [G]hard game
you know we [F]follow every r[C]ule
[C]Then you take the [F]one thing
we [C]thought we'd ne[F]ver lose
[Dm]All I ask is if s[Am]he's with you
please [C]keep her warm and s[F]afe
and if its in your [G]power
(stop) C Am C Am
please purge the memory,...of this place.
[C]This life holds its [Am]secrets
like a [C]seashell holds the [Am]sea
[C]soft and distand [Am]calling
like a [C]faded memo[Am]ry
[F]This life has its [G]victories
but its [C]defeats tear so [F]viciously
[C]This life holds its [G]secrets
like the [C]sea.[Am] [C] [Am]
