Dead to the World  Patti Smith

[Verse 1] 
[C]Dead to the world my [F]body was sleeping'
[C]On my mind was not[F]hin' at all
[C]Come a mist, an [F]air so appealing
[C]I'm here a whisperin', you [F]summoned, I called[C] [F]
[Verse 2] 
[C]I formed me a presence whose [F]aspect was changing'
[C]Oh, he would shift, he would [F]not shift at all
[C]We sat for a while, he was [F]very engaging'
[C]And when he was gone, I was [F]gone on a smile[C] [F]
[Cborus] 
With a [Dm]strange way of walking'
And a [F]strange way of breathing'
More [Dm]lives than a cat that [F]led me astray
[Dm]All in all, he captured my [F]heart
[C]Dead to the [Dm]world and I [F]just slipped a[C]way
[Verse 3] 
[C]I heard me a music that d[F]rew me to dancing'
[C]Lo, I turned [F]under his spell
[C]I opened my coat but he n[F]ever came closer
[C]I bolted the door and [F]whispered, oh well[C] [F]
[Cborus] 
With a [Dm]strange way of walking'
And a s[F]trange way of breathing'
More l[Dm]ives than a cat that l[F]ed me astray
[Dm]All in all, he captured my [F]heart
[C]Dead to the [Dm]world and [F]just slipped [C]away
[Instrumental] 
C F x 5
[Verse 4] 
[C]I laid in the rushes, the [F]air was upon me
[C]Wondering', well, I j[F]ust couldn't discern
[C]Will he come back, come [F]back to me?
[C]Oh, I whispered will you [F]ever return?[C] [F]
[Verse 5] 
[C]I was feeling' sensations in [F]no dictionary
[C]He was less than a breath of s[F]himmer and smoke
[C]The life in his fingers unw[F]ound my existence
[C]Dead to the world a[F]live I awoke[C] [F]
[Cborus] 
With a [Dm]strange way of walking'
And a s[F]trange way of breathing'
Less t[Dm]han a breath of s[F]himmer and smoke
[Dm]The life in his fingers unw[F]ound my existence
[C]Dead to the w[Dm]orld ali[F]ve I aw[C]oke
[Outro] 
[C]Alive I a[F]woke
[G](A[Am]live)
[C]Alive I a[F]woke
[G](Alive I a[Am]woke)
[C]Alive[F]
[G](I[Am] awoke)
[C]I awoke[F]
[G](I[Am] awoke)
[C]I awok[F]e
[G](A[Am]live)
[C]Alive, al[F]ive, oh
[G](A[Am]live)
[G](A[Am]live)
[C]Alive, al[F]ive, oh
[C]Alive, al[F]ive, oh
