Capo 1


Feet hit the ground, feet leavin' town
               D           E
Quicker than a bullet or a knife
Fallin' ain't no fun when you're on the run
E            D               E
Honey we was runnin' for our lives
     A                                 E
When Stagger Lee had drunk his fill of moonlight
   A                               E
He turned his burnin' eyes upon my soul
     A                                    E
"It's time by God to spend this night with someone else" he said
 E                D                 E
"Squeeze a little pleasure from the gold, love and glory but
E              D               E
We can take it easy when we're old"

He said "we'll take us into town, lay our money down
                      D                   E
I'll bring you to the sweetest thing that grows
Because the fairest ones in sight are bloomin' every night
     E                 D             E
At a tavern called the Sabre and the Rose"

   A                              E
We swang into the saddle slick as breathin'
    A                                     E
And slapped 'em once for pleasure with the reins
    A                            E
The horses snorted frosty in the moonlight
                   D             E
Somethin' dark was singin' in my veins
 E             D            E       D  A  E
Older than the voices in my brain

He said "this place you're gonna see is where they live and breathe
                           D            E
And sink down a little bit deeper every day
And sometimes at night when the wind is a-runnin' right
        E               D             E
You can hear it suckin' thirty miles away"

A                                E
Then the light was crimson and I found her
    A                       E
All naked and eternal and insane
A                        E
Sacred as the mysteries around her like a veil
E               D            E
Nothin' but her prison was profane
E              D             E
All we had in common was our chains

D   A            E
      Ah burn it down boys
D   A                E
      Burn it to the grounds boys, burn it on down yeah

Feet hit the ground, feet leavin' town
               D            E
Quicker than a bullet or a knife
All the way she ran holdin' to my hand
E               D             E
Runnin' for the river and our lives
A                               E
Slidin' from the moonlight into shadows
A                         E
Silent as the river as it flows
A                                   E
Swimmin' to the place they'll never find us
E           D                 E
All we left behind us was our clothes and the stories children
E               D            E
Sing about the Sabre and the Rose
