Take an [Bm]eye for an eye[Bsus4]
Take a [Bm]tooth for a tooth[Bsus4]
Just l[D]ike they say in the [F#]Bible[F#7]
[Bm]Never leave a trace [Bsus4] [Bm]or forget a face[Bsus4]
Of any [D]man at the [F#]table,[F#7] of any [F#]man at the [Bm]table[Bsus4]
When the [Em]moon is a cold chiseled [Bm]dagger[Bsus4]
[Em]sharp enough to draw [Bm]blood from a stone[Bsus4]
he [Em]rides through your dreams on a coach
and [Bm]horses [Bsus4] and the [Em]fence posts
in the midnight look like [F#]bones
Well they've stopped trying to hold him
with mortar, stone and chain
He broke out of every prison
Boots mount the staircase
The door is flung back open
He's not there for he has risen
He's not there for he has risen
Well he once killed a man with a guitar string
He's been seen at the table with kings
Well he once saved a baby from drowning
There are those who say beneath his coat there are wings
Some say they fear him
Others admire him
because he steals his promise
One look in his eye
everyone denies
ever having met him
ever having met him
He can turn himself into a stranger
well they broke a lot of canes on his hide
He was born away in a cornfield
A fever beats in his head like a drum inside
Some say they fear him
Others admire him
because he steals his promise
One look in his eye
everyone denies
ever having met him
ever having met him
(repeat till end)
