[VERSE 1]
   Em
As I walked out tonight in the mystic garden
    Em                                             Em7 Em6
The wounded flowers were dangling from the vines
      Am7
I was passing by yon cool and crystal fountain
Em                            Em7 Em6
  Someone hit me from behind
      Em                     Em7 Em6
Ain't talkin', just walkin'
Em           Am7            Em
Through this weary world of woe
      Em                     Em7 Em6
Heart burnin', still yearnin'
   Bsus4  Dsus2            Em
No one on earth would ever know


[VERSE 2]
         Em
They say prayer has the power to help
                 Em
So pray from the mother
       Em
In the human heart an evil spirit can dwell
              Am7
I'm trying to love my neighbor and do good unto others
        Em
But oh, mother, things ain't going well
      Em                    Em7 Em6
Ain't talkin', just walkin'
     Em                 Am7            Em
I'll burn that bridge before you get across
      Em                      Em7 Em6
Heart burnin', still yearnin'
            Bsus4        Dsus2           Em
There'll be no mercy for you once you've lost


[VERSE 3]
        Em
Now I'm all worn out by weepin'
   Em
My eyes are full of tears, my lips are dry
     Am7
If I catch my opponents ever sleepin'
          Em
I'll just slaughter them where they lie
      Em                     Em7 Em6
Ain't talkin', just walkin'
Em                   Am7         Em    Em7 Em6
Through the world mysterious and vague
      Em            Em7 Em6
Heart burnin', still yearnin'
Bsus4               Dsus2         Em
Walking through the cities of the plague


[INTERLUDE]
| Em | Em | Em | Em |


[VERSE 4]
          Em
Well, the whole world is filled with speculation
    Em
The whole wide world which people say is round
          Am7
They will tear your mind away from contemplation
          Em
They will jump on your misfortune when you're down
      Em                   Em7 Em6
Ain't talkin', just walkin'
       Em             Am7            Em
Eatin' hog-eyed grease in a hog-eyed town
      Em
Heart burnin' – still yearnin'
    Bsus4         Dsus2            Em
Someday you'll be glad to have me around


[INTERLUDE]
| Em | Em | Em | Em |


[VERSE 5]
          Em
They will crush you with wealth and power
      Em
Every waking moment you could crack
              Am7
I'll make the most of one last extra hour
      Em
I'll avenge my father's death then I'll step back
      Em                    Em7 Em6
Ain't talkin', just walkin'
Em      Am7             Em
Hand me down my walkin' cane
      Em
Heart burnin', still yearnin'
       Bsus4             Dsus2     Em
Got to get you out of my miserable brain


[INTERLUDE]
| Em | Em | Em | Em |


[VERSE 6]
       Em
All my loyal and my much-loved companions
       Em
They approve of me and share my code
      Am7
I practice a faith that's been long abandoned
         Em                                      Em7 Em6
Ain't no altars on this long and lonesome road
      Em                    Em7 Em6
Ain't talkin', just walkin'
   Em
My mule is sick, my horse is blind
      Em 
Heart burnin', still yearnin'
Bsus4               Dsus2        Em
Thinkin' 'bout that gal I left behind


[VERSE 7]
           Em
Well, it's bright in the heavens and the wheels are flyin'
Em                                  Em7 Em6
Fame and honor never seem to fade
    Am7
The fire gone out but the light is never dyin'
         Em
Who says I can't get heavenly aid?
      Em                    Em7 Em6
Ain't talkin', just walkin'
Em         Am7        Em
Carryin' a dead man's shield
      Em
Heart burnin', still yearnin'
Bsus4          Dsus2           Em
Walkin' with a toothache in my heel


[VERSE 8]
    Em
The sufferin' is unending
      Em
Every nook and cranny has its tears
        Am7
I'm not playing, I'm not pretending
        Em
I'm not nursin' any superfluous fears
      Em                    Em7 Em6
Ain't talkin', just walkin'
Em           Am7             Em
Walkin' ever since the other night
      Em
Heart burnin', still yearnin'
Bsus4           Dsus2         Em
Walkin' 'til I'm clean out of sight


[INTERLUDE]
| Em | Em | Em | Em |
| Em | Em | Em Bm | Em |


[VERSE 9]
Em
 As I walked out in the mystic garden
     Em
On a hot summer day, a hot summer lawn
  Am7
Excuse me, ma'am, I beg your pardon
        Em                                Em7 Em6
There's no one here, the gardener is gone
      Em                    Em7 Em6
Ain't talkin', just walkin'
Em            Am7       Em
Up the road, around the bend
      Em
Heart burnin', still yearnin'
       Bsus4       Dsus2           Em
In the last outback at the world's end
