Subject: Serpent at the Gates of Wisdom

Serpent at the Gates of Wisdom by Robyn Hitchcock

G       D       C      G        -      D       C
Serpent at the Gates of Wisdom, curling round a tree
G       D         C       G      -        D       C
With your eyes so dark and empty looking straight through me
G               D             Bb              C
How did you get so unwinding, do you know my sin?
G       D           C        G      Bb      D         C
When you're so close to the answer, why don't you go in?

Serpent at the gates of Wisdom, who did you decieve
She was weak, but that's no reason for what you did to Eve
You're a fool - You broke the stillness.  She gave birth to desire
Rolling dowen the frozen highwaay like a buring tyre

Serpent at the gates of wisdom, where do you belong?
Wisdom cannot be transmitted, it keeps you hanging on.
Do you really serve the Devil if it's all God's plan?
Good and evil need each other.  Honey I'm your man.

Serpent at the gates of wisdom, like a purple scar
Leering at me round the dashboard as I reach my car.
I close the door, I start the engine, and I take control.
God above and all his angels, have mercy on your soul.

Terry Marks
