Backsliding Fearlessly  Mott the Hoople

Written by Ian Hunter
[C] [F] [Em] [Dm]  
[C] [F] [Em] [Dm]  
[C] [F] [C]  
[C] [F] [C]  
[C]I dreamt of being horses [F]in shackle[C]s of gold[F] [C]
[C]And the men that were young[Am] then are now t[Bb]erribly o[F]ld
[C]The graveyard was [F]creaking with too many [C]bones
[C]While the bishop was [Am]praying his [Bb]cassock [F]was sold
[C]Three cheers for the innocent [F]though he is [C]perverse
[C]Three screams for the [Am]hangman as he crie[Bb]s for the [F]hearse
[C]I weep for the rebels [F]conventional [C]ways
[C]For he loses h[Am]is mind [Bb]while the devio[F]us stay
[C]By [G]the way
[C]If the world[F] saluted [Em]you
Well [Dm]what would you do [G]if you could [Dm]be there
[G]Well would you still take me
Would you take me anywhere
[C]If the world[F] saluted [Em]you
[Dm]Well what would you [F]say when things were [Dm]down
[Dm]Would you still [G]want me
Would you want me around
[C] [F] [Em] [Dm] [C]  
[C] [F] [C]  
[C]So come all ye faithful [F]and slaughter your[C] lambs
[C]Your minds have b[Am]een whipped by [Bb]experie[F]nced hands
[C]I wish we were children [F]I'd welcome [C]the change
[Dm]And the mind of an[Bb] old man you can't[F] rearrange
[G]Ain't it strange
[C]If the world [F]saluted [Em]you
[Dm]Well what would you do[C] if you [Bm]could b[Dm]e there
[G]Would you still
Would you still [Em]take me [G]anywhere
[C]If the world [F]saluted [Em]you
[Dm]What would you [F]say when things[Dm] were down
[G]Would you still want me
Would you still want me around
[C] [F] [Em] [Dm]  
[C] [F] [Em] [Dm]  
[C](fad[F]e ou[Em]t) [Dm]
