Lungs
By: Townes Van Zandt

Em
Won't you lend your lungs to me
D              Em
Mine are collapsing 
Em
Plant my feet and bitterly breath
D                  Em
Up the time that's passing
D                    Em
Breath I'll give and breath I'll take
D                      Em
And pray the day's not poison
Em              D         Em
Stand among the ones that live 
Em        D     Em
In lonely indecision


Em
Fingers walk the darkness down
D              Em
Mind is on the midnight
Em
Gather up the gold you've found
D                  Em
You fool it's only moonlight
D                         Em
And if you try to take it home
D                     Em
Your hands'll turn to butter
Em                D       Em
Better leave this dream alone
Em     D       Em
Try to find another


Em
Salvation sat and crossed herself
D                    Em
And called the devil partner
Em
Wisdom burned upon a shelf
D                      Em
Who'll kill the raging cancer?
D                     Em
Seal the river at its mouth
D              Em
Take the water prisoner
Em                D           Em
Fill the sky with screams and cries
Em       D     Em
Bathe in fiery answers


Em
Jesus was an only son
D             Em
Love his only concept
Em
Strangers cry in foreign tongues 
    D            Em
And dirty up the doorstep
D                 Em      D
And I for one and you for two
D                      Em
Ain't got the time for outside
Em                     D        Em
Just keep your injured looks to you
Em             D             Em
We'll tell the world that we tried
