Verse 2:
---------

Ruthie will give you the silver key
that opens the red door.
Put down your jack, son and you will see

In the night you hide from the madman
you're longing to be.
But it all comes out on the inside
eventually.

Knock twice, rap with your cane.
Feels nice, you're out of the rain.
We've got your skinny girl,

One of my toplist favorites of SD !!!
All these suspended chords create a real wall of harmomy, all around . Great work, Hakwright . Up to now, there is no better version than your version, of this great 'ballad' . Not even an attempt :) Thanks again for posting .
