Saint Francis  Gretchen Peters

Saint Francis walking [C/G]on the [G]water
All his lambs have [C/G]gone to [G]slaughter[D]
And all the creatures who re[C]ceive his grace
You [G]can see them all in his [D]haggard face[G]
Saint Francis begging [C/G]at your [G]doorway
You want to let him in, but what will the [C/G]neighbours [G]say[D]
And you know you can't go on, but you [C]can't give up
And he [G]answers you with his [D]begging cup[G]
Saint Francis sitting [C/G]at your [G]table
A cup of tea a[C/G]mong the [G]faithful[D]
Behind a wall that's made of[C] little lies
Much to [G]your surprise, you [D]start to cry[G] [D]
And by these wounds you will be [C]whole again
By these [G]signs you will [D]know
You'll feel a stirring in your [C]soul again[Em]
'Til sweet amnesia takes a [F]hold[G]
Saint Francis sleeping [C/G]in the [G]meadow
His halo is a [C/G]raven's [G]shadow[D]
He's been sleeping for eight [C]hundred years
In a [G]potter's field full of [D]sparrow's tears
And while we sleep and dream of [C]heaven's gates
Down [G]here on earth the [D]old man waits [G]
