[Bm]Last I saw mother she rose from a chair
When they [Em]caught me I'd just finished combing my hair
'Cause a r[A]abbit will run, as a colt does along with the m[Bm]are
[Bm]We've all learned the earth while we carried the throne
We dove [Em]under the rivers and under our clothes
Now I s[A]till have a prayer, as sure as my settling b[Bm]ones
[Bm]Last I saw mother she covered my ears
When they c[Em]aught me I offered the captain a beer
'Cause a ra[A]bbit will run, and a lion has nothing to fe[Bm]ar
[Bm]We bricked up the garden and know what it means
And we've [Em]all kissed a virgin as if she were clean
And I s[A]till have a prayer, despite all the colors I've s[Bm]een
[Bm]And judgment is just like a cup that we share
I'll jump [Em]over the wall and I'll wait for you there
[A]Well past the weeds and our vision of things to[Bm] come
[Bm]We've all heard the rooster and all been denied
And we've [Em]seen through the haze and the spit in our eyes
And I s[A]till have a prayer, a well-weathered word to the [Bm]wise
(Break / Solo -- Continue playing chords as above)
[Bm]Last I saw mother she smelled like a rose
When they c[Em]aught me the captain, he opened my nose
'Cause a ra[A]bbit will run, and the wind takes a bird where it b[Bm]lows
[Bm]We all traded lovers and woke up alone
And we c[Em]lapped for the king, though our fingers were cold
And I s[A]till have a prayer, 'cause I love what I cannot [Bm]control
[Bm]Last I saw mother, she acted surprised
When they c[Em]aught me the captain, he cried like a child
'Cause a r[A]abbit will run, and good dogs together go w[Bm]ild
[Bm]We all live in grace at the end of the day
And we've [Em]armed all the children we thought we'd betrayed
And I s[A]till have a prayer, but too few occasions to p[Bm]ray
[Bm]And judgment is just like a cup that we share
I'll j[Em]ump over the wall and wait for you there
[A]Well past the weeds and our visions of things to c[Bm]ome
[Bm]And we've all found a reason for hiding the gun
And we've [Em]helped out a few if we've hurt anyone
And I s[A]till have a prayer and so be it, I've done what I've d[Bm]one
[Bm]Last I saw mother, she blew me a kiss
When they c[Em]aught me the cuffs caught the blood from my wrist
'Cause a ra[A]bbit will run, and a pig has to lay in it's p[Bm]**s
[Bm]We've all given half to the hand in our face
We've all t[Em]aken a stone from the holiest place
And I s[A]till have a prayer, and I've furthered the world in my w[Bm]ake
