Verse 1

B
Words get written. Words get twisted.
Old meanings move in the drift of time
A
Lift the flickering torches.
See gentle shadows change
B
the features of the faces
cut in unmoving stone
D5  E5         A5     G5           B
Bad mouth on a prayer day, hope no one's listening.
D5    E5          G5  A5    F#
Roots down in the wet clay, branches glistening.

Riff

Verse 2:
True disciples
carrying that message
to colour just a little
with their personal touch.
Home-spun fancy weavers
and naked half-believers
Crusades and creeds
descend like fiery flakes of snow.

Bad mouth on a prayer day, hope no one's listening
Roots down in the wet clay, branches glistening

F#
Roots to Branches.
Roots to Branches.
Roots to Branches.

Solo around riff in key of B

Verse 3:
In wet and windy priest-holes.
Grand in vast cathedrals
High on lofty minarets
or in the temples of doom
I hope the old man's got his face on.
He'd better be some quick change artist.
Suffer little children
to make their minds up soon.

Bad mouth on a prayer day, hope no one's listening.
Roots down in the wet clay, branches glistening.

F#
Roots to Branches.
Roots to Branches.
Roots to Branches.

Switch on F# B

F#
Roots to Branches.
Roots to Branches.
Roots to Branches.
