Well, I married Isis on the fifth day of May
                     G        D     A
But I could not hold on to her very long
                G          D              A
So I cut off my hair and I rode straight away
                    G               D            A     A/G
To the wild unknown country where I could not go wrong

Break: Played 2x

I came to a high place of darkness and light
Dividing line ran through the center of town
I hitched up my pony to a post on the right
Went in to a laundry to wash my clothes down


When a man in the corner, he approached me for a match
I knew right away he was not ordinary
He said, "Are you lookin' for somethin' easy to catch?"
I said, "I got no money" he said, "That ain't necessary"


Oh, we set out that night for the cold in the North
I gave him my blanket, an' he gave me his word
I said, "Where are we goin'?" He said we'd be back by the fourth
I said, "That's the best news that I ever heard"


I was thinkin' about turquoise, I was thinkin' about gold
I was thinkin' about diamonds and the world's biggest necklace
As we rode through the canyons, through the devilish cold
I was thinkin' about Isis, how she thought I was so reckless


Verse: Played as break
How she told me that one day we would meet up again
And things would be different the next time we wed
If only I could hang on and just be her friend
I still can't remember all the best things she said


Well, I picked up his body and I dragged him inside,
I threw him down in the hole and I put back the cover
I said a quick prayer and then I felt satisfied
I rushed back to find Isis just to tell her I love her


She was there in the meadow where the creek hits the rise
Blinded by sleep and in need of a bed
I came in from the East with the sun in my eyes
I cursed her one time then I rode on ahead

Well, I said, "Where ya been?" she said, "No place special"
She said, "You look different" I said, "Well, I guess"
She said, "You been gone" I said, "That's only natural"
She said, "You gonna stay?" I said, "If you want me to, yes"


Verse: Played as break
Oh, Isis, oh, Isis, you mystical child
What drives me to you is what drives me insane
I can remember the little way that you smiled
On the fifth day of May in the drizzlin' rain
