[Verse]

    Dm                                 A7/E
The lights were on, and you were gone, working for your wheat
        Dm/F                        D7/F#
And the shadow from the minute hand shifted in retreat
   Gm                          Dm/A
And I will write your elegy, a craftsman at his peak
   A7/E                                     Dm
If you can tell me where you were when your baby was asleep

  Dm                                        A7/E
I picked up tips, learned my tricks from professionals on the street
Dm/F                                D7/F#
Have my slab and cleaving blades, a butcher on my neat
    Gm                                  Dm/A
And I will carve the choicest cuts, and serve them as your treat
   A7/E                                     Dm
If you can tell me where you were when your baby was asleep


[Chorus]

Gm             Dm
Gentle was the touch of you
     Gm7/Bb       Am7/C
Your hands they commit
    Gm7/Bb        Dm/A
Did scatter every demon where
    A7/E        Dm
Your baby was asleep

(Weird Interlude)


[Verse]

    Dm                              A7/E
And now you say to me today through stained and gritted teeth
     Dm/F                              D7/F#
That you had tried your uttermost to delay the laurel wreath
    Gm                             Dm/A
And thinking of your father's disapproval makes you weak
      A7/E                            Dm
Cause you were not a father when your baby was asleep


[Chorus]

Gm             Dm
Gentle was the touch of you
     Gm7/Bb       Am7/C
Your hands they commit
    Gm7/Bb        Dm/A
Did scatter every demon where
    A7/E        Dm
Your baby was asleep
