Chord sequence:  (two bars of each) B B E B F# E B B

crd lyr

 B  Take a little walk to the edge of town, go across the tracks
 B  Where the viaduct looms like a bird of doom, as it shifts and cracks
 E  Where secrets lie in the border fires, in the humming wires,
    Hey man, you know you're never coming back
 B  Past the square, past the bridge, past the mills, past the stacks
 F# On a gathering storm comes a tall handsome man
 E  In a dusty black coat with a red right hand
 B
 B
 B  He'll wrap you in his arms, tell you that you've been a good boy
 B  He'll rekindle all the dreams it took you a lifetime to destroy
 E  He'll reach deep into the hole, heal your shrinking soul,
    But there won't be a single thing that you can do
 B  He's a ghost, he's a god, he's a man, he's a guru
 F# They're whispering his name through this disappearing land
 E  But hidden in his coat is a red right hand
 B
 B
 B  You don't own no money?  He'll get you some
 B  You don't have no car?  He'll get you one
 E  You don't have no self respect, you feel like an insect,
    Well don't you worry buddy cause here he comes
 B  Through the ghetto and the barrio and the bowery and the slum
 F# A shadow is cast wherever he stands
 E  Stacks of green paper in his red right hand
 B

 B  You'll see him in your nightmares, you'll see him in your dreams
 B  He'll appear out of nowhere but he aint what he seems
 E  You'll see him in your head, on the TV screen
    And hey buddy, I'm warning you to turn it off

 E  Designed and directed by his Red Right Hand
