Rocky World  Daniel Lanois


[G]My hands are [Bm9]wrapped in[C] your raven[G] hair
In the [G]faded [Bm9]picture on th[C]e back stair
We were [C]narrow, we were s[Bm9]teady,[C] trembling and ready
To [C]give it Hell in [D]this rocky [G]world
[G]You said do I [Bm9]look like I could[C] be a strong[G] mother
And [G]raise the good [Bm9]side of a[C] young daughter
In the [C]hotel [Bm9]Shangri-La[C] let me tell you
I've been [C]thinking of her in [D]this rocky [G]world
[G]Chicago is [Bm9]heavy, but I[C] can't turn [G]around
I'm [G]smuggling that [Bm9]whiskey, every[C] flesh and pound
[C]Michigan I [Bm9]worry, and[C] Susie I'm sorry
That I [C]lost you out there i[D]n the rocky [G]world
Would you [C]build me a [Bm9]building a[C] chapel up there
At the [G]top of the [Bm9]hill in the [C]still blue air
Near the [C]weather vane,[Bm9] by the[C] track and train
I'll be [C]looking for you in [D]the rocky [G]world
[G]She's turning [Bm9]twenty and[C] out on the[G] make
[G]Pounding the [Bm9]blacktop with a[C] habit to shake
She's l[C]ooking for a [Bm9]manger in the[C] eyes of a stranger
[C]Down on the streets [D]of a rocky [G]world
[G]Jenny has re[Bm9]ligion she[C] sings in a[G] church
She's [G]made a de[Bm9]cision to[C] colour her hair
The [C]Black man cut the [Bm9]sugar cane she[C] watches the rain
In a [C]building far [D]from the rocky [G]world
Yeah I'll [C]tell you [Bm9]something I'll[C] never forget
The [G]sight of you [Bm9]in sil[C]houette
Outside [C]Sault Ste. [Bm9]Marie you[C] really threw me
When you [C]pulled me down to [D]your rocky [G]bed
In a [G]crowded room[Bm9] I st[C]ood there [G]empty
[G]Looking for sal[Bm9]vation and[C] glory be
When a [C]shot turned my [Bm9]head and I[C] saw you instead
Walk [C]into[D] my rocky [G]world
Alright, there we go...Anybody else out there have more Lanois tunes to
