Light a Candle for Me  Billy Joe Shaver

B.J. Shaver
Greatest Hits
Would you [E]light a candle for [D]me, babe
Even though I have done done you [A]wrong
If I [D]called you up around [A]midnight
Would you [D]pray with me on the [A]phone
I recall the winters we weathered
I felt your heart beat with mine
You pulled me so deeply inside you
Our bodies so sweetly entwined
You know it hurt me to hurt you
But I felt my deal goin' down
Now I'm hung in the hooks of the highway
I'm gone and I can't turn around
These devils out here done took me
'Cause they know that I's a good hearted man
It's too late to pray for my life now
But my soul can be saved by your hands
Would you light a candle for me, babe
And don't snuff it out 'til the dawn
When that gamey **** stops his crowin'
My soul'll come winging back home
Like a deaf man gazin' sadly
At a blind man singin' his song
There's a world of difference between us
But the grace of God makes us one
Would you [E]light a candle for [D]me, babe
