Subject: CRD:Rocky World - Daniel Lanois
Rocky World - Daniel Lanois
[G]My hands are [Bmin]wrapped in [C]your raven [G]hair
In the [G]faded [Bmin]picture on the[C] back stair
We were [C]narrow, we were s[Bmin]teady, [C]trembling and ready
To [C]give it Hell in [D]this rocky [G]world
[G]You said do I [Bmin]look like I could [C]be a strong [G]mother
And [G]raise the good [Bmin]side of a [C]young daughter
In the [C]hotel [Bmin]Shangri-La [C]let me tell you
I've been [C]thinking of her in [D]this rocky [G]world
[G]Chicago is [Bmin]heavy, but I [C]can't turn a[G]round
I'm [G]smuggling that [Bmin]whiskey, every [C]flesh and pound
[C]Michigan I [Bmin]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 [Bmin]building a [C]chapel up there
At the [G]top of the [Bmin]hill in the s[C]till blue air
Near the [C]weather vane,[Bmin] by the [C]track and train
I'll be [C]looking for you in [D]the rocky [G]world
[G]She's turning [Bmin]twenty and [C]out on the [G]make
[G]Pounding the [Bmin]blacktop with a [C]habit to shake
She's l[C]ooking for a [Bmin]manger in the [C]eyes of a stranger
[C]Down on the streets [D]of a rocky [G]world
[G]Jenny has re[Bmin]ligion she [C]sings in a [G]church
She's [G]made a de[Bmin]cision to [C]colour her hair
The [C]Black man cut the [Bmin]sugar cane she [C]watches the rain
In a [C]building far [D]from the rocky [G]world
Yeah I'll [C]tell you [Bmin]something I'll [C]never forget
The [G]sight of you [Bmin]in silh[C]ouette
Outside [C]Sault Ste. [Bmin]Marie you [C]really threw me
When you [C]pulled me down to [D]your rocky [G]bed
In a [G]crowded room[Bmin] I sto[C]od there e[G]mpty
[G]Looking for sal[Bmin]vation and [C]glory be
When a [C]shot turned my [Bmin]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
