[Intro]
G   D   G   D   C   D   C   D

[Verse]
G                               D
Minor chords and major arcana
G                                     D
Little leather jacket and a black bandana
C                                             D
Kicking over trashcans and telling jokes in Atlanta
                C                              
When I got the fever, it hit me like a fan
        D
On the back of my hand I don't know who I am
G                           D
But I'm free for nothing good for nothing too
G                                 D
Crazy to dream and still crazy about you
          C                                       D
Won't you let me in one more time, babe I want to feel it too
      C                                          D
Well nothing is a lie, babe if you know it ain't true

[Chorus]
                   G      D 
Take a look at me now
                   G      D
Take a look at me now

[Verse]
G                           D
Reparations now coming my way
G                                       D
Dues that I've recollected that I never paid
        C                                     D 
In the stained glass windows babe I feel the presence, oh yeah
C                                            D      
But that don't mean I'm done with repentance oh no
G                                           D
Gonna find another way to climb out of this basement
G                               D
Gonna find out what that smile on your face meant
         C                                           D                   
Like a thief that you borrow baby take a hold of me, take flight
       G                                      D
And I want to do your bidding babe I want to steal away in the night

[Chorus]
                   G      D
Take a look at me now
                   G      D
Take a look at me now

[Verse]
G                            D
Heart's on fire; so is the page
G                                          D 
Everybody round here is telling me to act my age, I'm tryin'
C                                       D
Things are only revealed in the light that is given
          C                                     D 
Oh to be freed from the pardon when all else is forgiven
G                                         D
Rain outside is blowing in the curtains
G                                   D
Nothing is revealed but nothing is for certain
C                                         D     
As I recall you was drinking from the sanctuary wine
            C                                D
Well don't worry baby we'll find all of our lost time

[Chorus]
                   G       D
Take a look at me now
                   G       D
Take a look at me now

[Bridge]
C                                             D
As I recall you were standing there, you was holding your rosary beads
C                                   D 
Everyone around here seems to think he knows what he needs
C                            D
Seven ugly reasons kept me away from you then
C                                D
Nothing is much weaker than the resolve of most men

[Verse]
G                                     D
I remember when we was alone in your room
G                                         D
Staring out your window we knew you'd be going soon
    C                                             D
And I was so young babe I hope that you knew that I meant well
     C                                              D
And when I looked in your eyes I thought I knew you could tell
G                                       D
Now I'm blown back from the cemetery gates
G                                     D
You whom I loved dearly now I must wait
C                          D
To be reunited in the sky when it opens
        C                              D
Well my feet are so tired baby but my spirit ain't broken

[Chorus]
                   G           D
Take a look at me now
                   G           D
Take a look at me now

[Outro]
C  D   C   D   C   D   C   D
G  D   G   D   G   D   G   D  x2
