Another Bruce/Baker/Moore number which is highly reminiscent of a classic Cream 
performance. In this case, think ‘Crossroads’ and you’ll get the general vibe. It’s 
a standard 12-bar blues in the key of A and it is so similar to the Cream track that 
the lyrics and guitar solos could easily be interchanged. The song features some 
typically muscular guitar work by Gary Moore (Gibson Les Paul & Marshall JTM45) with 
more than a passing nod to EC.

Tuning: standard

Verse 1


      A5          D5                        A        A
In my home of sand outside the city of gold
           D5                          D7               A
Where the wind’s so burning hot but my heart remains so cold
             E5
I need to buy myself some answers
       D5          D7             A        A
But the truth’s already been sold



Verse 2


           A5
Well I know how to use a razor
D5                             A        A
Carve my initials in the light
       D5
Yes, I know how to use a razor
D7                       A        A
Carve my initials in the light
E5        E                            D5
Sometimes in the depths of the dark, baby
D13   D7                A        A
I can make everything alright



Verse 3


      A5          D5                   A        A
In my home of sand outside the city of gold

Well the wind’s so burning hot but my heart remains so cold, yes it does
    E5      E               D5     D13     D7         A
The shelter in your eyes, I dream about it when I die
