DEAD TO THE WORLD

PATTI SMITH


[Verse 1]

C                    F
Dead to the world my body was sleeping’

C                 F
On my mind was nothin’ at all

C               F
Come a mist, an air so appealing

C                          F                 C        F
I’m here a whisperin', you summoned, I called


[Verse 2]

C                            F
I formed me a presence whose aspect was changing’

C                            F
Oh, he would shift, he would not shift at all

C                          F
We sat for a while, he was very engaging’

C                           F              C         F
And when he was gone, I was gone on a smile


[Chorus]

       Dm                    
With a strange way of walking’

      F
And a strange way of breathing’

     Dm                    F
More lives than a cat that led me astray

Dm                         F
All in all, he captured my heart

C           Dm          F             C
Dead to the world and I just slipped away


[Verse 3]

C                        F
I heard me a music that drew me to dancing’

C            F
Lo, I turned under his spell

C                        F
I opened my coat but he never came closer

C                     F                 C         F
I bolted the door and whispered, oh well


[Chorus]

       Dm                    
With a strange way of walking’

       F
And a strange way of breathing’

      Dm                    F
More lives than a cat that led me astray

Dm                         F
All in all, he captured my heart

C           Dm        F            C
Dead to the world and just slipped away


[Instrumental]

  C  F x 5


[Verse 4]

C                         F
I laid in the rushes, the air was upon me

C                    F
Wondering’, well, I just couldn't discern

C                       F
Will he come back, come back to me?

C                        F           C         F
Oh, I whispered will you ever return?


[Verse 5]

C                            F
I was feeling’ sensations in no dictionary

C                             F
He was less than a breath of shimmer and smoke

C                          F
The life in his fingers unwound my existence

C                  F           C         F
Dead to the world alive I awoke


[Chorus]

       Dm                    
With a strange way of walking’

       F
And a strange way of breathing’

      Dm               F
Less than a breath of shimmer and smoke

Dm                         F
The life in his fingers unwound my existence

C            Dm      F      C
Dead to the world alive I awoke


[Outro]

C        F
Alive I awoke
G Am
(Alive)

C        F
Alive I awoke
G         Am
(Alive I awoke)

C        F

G Am
(I awoke)

C      F
I awoke
G Am
(I awoke)

C     F

G Am
(Alive)

C        F
Alive, alive, oh
G Am
(Alive)

G Am
(Alive)
C        F
Alive, alive, oh
C        F
Alive, alive, oh
