When You Awake  The Band

From The Bands website;
[E] Ollie [F#m]told me [B7] I'm[A/C#] a foo[E]l. So I
[A]walked on down the [Bm]road a mile, [A/C#]Went to the house that [D]brings a smile
[F#] Sat upon my [Bm]grandpa's knee, [E]And what do you think he said[D] to [G]me?
[C] When You Awake you will re[Am]member [C/G]ev'ry[F]thing, You will be
[D7]hangin' on[C] a [G]string from your... [C]When you believe, You [C/B]will re[Am]lieve the [C/G]only [F]soul
[F]That you were [D7]born with [C]to grow [G]old and never kn[C]ow[B]
Ollie showed me the fork in the road.
You can take to the left or go straight to the right,
Use your days and save your nights,
Be careful where you step, and watch wha-cha eat,
Sleep with the light on and you got it beat.
(Repeat Chorus)
Ollie warned me it's a mean old world,
The street don't greet ya, yes, it's true;
But what am I supposed to do:
Read the writing on the wall,
I heard itwhen I was very small.
(Repeat Chorus)
[E]Wash my hand in lye water, [F#m]I got a date with the
captains daughter.[E] You can go and tell your brother.[F#m] We sure gonna
love one another, [E]Oh![F#m] You
[E]may be right and ya might be wrong, I [F#m]ain't gonna worry all day long.
[E]Snow's gonna come and the frost gonna bite, [F#m]My old car froze
up last night. [E]Ain't no reason to hang your head [F#m]I could wake up in the
mornin' dead. [E]Oh! [F#m] And
[E]if I thought it would do any good, I'd [F#m]stand on the rock where Moses stood.
