  I thought I'd take a walk today
  It's a mistake I sometimes make
                            Am7 F
  The kids lay asleep in be-ed
                       G6* Am
  My wife lay wide-awake
                                  Am7 F
  I kissed her softly on the bro-ow
                            G6* Am
  I tried not to make a sound
                                     Am7 F
  But with stony eyes she looked at me
                            G6* Am
  And gently squeezed my hand
                   (Am7) F                    (G6*) Am
  Call it a premonition,   call it a crazy vision
               (Am7) F                                (G6*) Am
  Call it intuitio-o-on, something learned from mother
                            Am7 F                   (G6*) Am
  But when she looked up at me,     I could clearly see
                    Am7 F                   (G6*) Am
  The Sword of Damocles   hanging directly above her
      F          Am
  Oh Lord Oh my Lord
  Oh Lord
   F            (C7)
  How have I offended thee?
    F               Fm
  Wrap your tender arms around me
      F       F
  Oh Lord Oh Lord
         Am    F    Am
  Oh My Lo-o-o-ord

They called at me through the fence
They were not making any sense
They claimed that I had lost the plot
Kept saying that I was not
The man I used to be
They held their babes aloft
Threw marsh mellows at the Security
And said that I'd grown soft

Call it intuition, call it a creeping suspicion,
But their words of derision meant they hardly knew me
For even I could see in the way they looked at me
The Spear of Destiny sticking right through me
Oh Lord Oh my lord
Oh Lord
How have I offended thee?
Wrap your tender arms round me
Oh Lord Oh lord
Oh My Lord

Now l'm at the hairdressers
People watch me as they move past
A guy wearing plastic antlers
Presses his bum against the glass
Now l'm down on my hands and knees
And it's so fucking hot!
Someone cries, "What are you looking for?"
I scream, "The plot, the plot!"
I grab my telephone, I call my wife at home
She screams, "Leave us alone!" I say, "Hey, it's only me"
The hairdresser with his scissors, he holds up the mirror
I look back and shiver; I can't even believe what I can see
Be mindful of the prayers you send
Pray hard but pray with care
For the tears that you are crying now
Are just your answered prayers
The ladders of life that we scale merrily
Move mysteriously around
So that when you think you're climbing up, man
In fact you're climbing down
Into the hollows of glamour, where with spikes and hammer
With telescopic camera, they chose to turn the screw
Oh I hate them, Ma! Oh I hate them, Pa!
Oh I hate them all for what they went and done to you
Oh Lord Oh my Lord
Oh Lord
How have I offended thee?
Wrap your tender arms round me
Oh Lord Oh Lord
Oh My Lord
