at the bottom.
Get in the car we're late for the gig
But don't go too fast it's been s[C]nowin' since[E] 10[Am] am
We [C]never will [E]be this free ag[Am]ain
Just [Dm]over the bridge, crossin' the Gatineau
To the side that I [C]know where the [E]light becomes st[Am]range
And we'll [C]never [E]be this free a[Am]gain.
[Dm]On our way home singin' the songs that we learned on our mother?s knee
[C]Four black [E]sheep in n[Am]eed
[C]Tryin' or cr[E]yin' to be f[Am]ree.
[D]Jesse's been [Dsus4]drinkin' again and [D]again he [Asus4]won't [A]believe, he [Asus4]can't [A]believe
[Asus4]We can [A]see [Asus4]right [A]through his [G]soul.
[Dm]Mom and Dad are on their way, they know these roads
They've been [C]travelling a [E]lonely [Am]life.
[C]Black sheep they too were b[E]orn in the n[Am]ight.
And we'll [Dm]meet at the lodge to suck on life as we look up at the sky
that [C]we don't [E]feel the s[Am]ame.
And we'll [C]never [E]be this free a[Am]gain.
[F#m]May walked away in the snow sayin' she was [Esus4]through[E].
And [F#m]Frere Jacques would never want to ring the bell to tell us all
We already [Esus4]knew[E]
A* Bm*
That out there in the freezing night we will not be all right
Four black sheep travellin' different speeds
Angry at the world
Losing their way in the cold blue snow.
Red on black on white - it glowed.
We will nev[C]er [E]feel that free aga[Am]in.
We will n[C]ever [E]feel that free aga[Am]in.
After the show back on the road to Montreal
There were [D]diamonds [F#m]piercin' our e[Bm]yes
And the [D]snow pilin' [E]up on either s[Bm]ide.
[Em]Jesse took the wheel, there was an appeal to stop the ride
but we were [D]just four black [F#m]sheep in the [Bm]night.
[D]Tryin' to ho[F#m]ld on for our [Bm]lives.
[Em]We never made it home - spinnin' out on the road
We took to the sky where we were [D]finally [F#m]free for the last t[Bm]ime.
[D]Flyin' high at the [F#m]end of our [Bm]lives.
[D]Four black sheep [F#m]deep in the white [Bm]light
[D]Red on black on [F#m]white in the [Bm]night
I said [D]red on black on [F#m]white in the n[Bm]ight
I said [D]red on black on [F#m]white in the n[Bm]ight
[D]Red on black on [F#m]white in the n[Bm]ight
[D]Red on black on w[F#m]hite in the n[Bm]ight?
