Caledonia Mission  The Band

Caledonia Mission chords
The Band 1968 (Robbie Robertson) from Big Pink
[G7] [G] [C]  
She [G]reads the leaves and she [C]leads the life
That she [G]learned so well from the [D]old wives
It's so [Em]strange to ar[D]range it,[C] you know I
wouldn't [D]change it
But [Em]hear me if you're [D]near me[C], can I just
rear[D]range it?
The [G7]watchman covers me
With his remedy
I can't see and it's hard to feel[D]
I think his magic [C]might be real[G]
[G7] [G] [C]  
[G]I can't [G7]get to you from your [C]garden gate
You know it's [G]always locked by the [D]magistrate
Now he don't [Em]care why [D]you cry,[C] he thinks it's
[D]just a lie
To [Em]get out, I [D]don't doubt[C] that you'd make a [D]try
[G7]If the good times get you through
I know the dogs won't bother you
We'll be gone in moonshine time[D]
I've got a place they'll [C]never find [G]
[G7] [G] [C]  
You know I [G]do believe in your [C]hexagram
But can you [G]tell me how they all [D]knew the plan?
Did you [Em]trip or [D]slip on their [C]gifts you know were
[D]just a con?
You [Em]knew it, why d'you [D]do it[C], I've been hiding [D]in
the dawn
[G7]Now I must be on my way
I guess you really have to stay
Inside the mission walls
[D]Down in Modark, [C]Arkansas [G]
[G7] [G] [C]
