Wake  up  the  bride,  wake  up the dead

Old wool fades, old windows run
D        G                    D       G
Old wood dries, smells like a church
D          G
Old frames lie on the desk,

‘til the fac-es yellow

And Tell ‘em the truth

[Verse 4]
    D                         G
The bed’s still warm and it’s pressed in her form
    D                          A
Her pillow still smells like a man’s cologne
      D           A                    Bm       G
And a vague, gray shame is creeping behind me
  D           A                    Bm       G
A vague, gray shame is creeping behind me
                                     (Call the preacher)
  D           A                    Bm       G
A vague, gray shame is creeping behind me
                       (call the justice)
         Cadd9   G           D
Call somebody        Call me Home
