Intro: E  F#m  A  B  E   F#m  B  A  E

E                      F#m
Baby hit the back door breathing real heavy
         A                          B         E
Said the boys in the alley wouldn't leave her alone
E                         F#m
Mama did her make-up in a terrible hurry
    B                         A         E
She finally got ready but the boys were gone
F#m                  G#m    
Mama don't you worry night's approaching
          A                         B         E
There's a hole in Heaven where some sin slips through
E                   F#m
Close your eyes and dream real steady
B                        A        E
Maybe just a little will spill on you
E              F#m     G#m         E
The dark don't lie and dreams come true
A                   F#m     E
Could be a few will see you through

E             F#m
Old lady Rose looking down her nose
   A                B             E
At lonely miss Lily hiding in the hall
E                           F#m
Lily's just praying for the trial to be over
B                           A      E
Rosy's just waiting for the axe to fall
F#m                G#m    
Show me off on the way to town
    A                         B             E
The sky's still shiny and the earth's still brown
E                  F#m
Tell the judge I'm ready for the vases
B                                    A      E
Gonna' dance in their faces when the guitar sounds
E           F#m       G#m     E
It won't be long I'll be long gone
A                         F#m         E
I been leaning toward the shadows all along

E                 F#m
Those in the know say how it goes
    A                   B      E
You plan on reaping you better sow
E                        F#m
You plan on sleeping you better keep moving
B                             A        E
Sleeping ain't allowed around here you know
F#m            G#m    
Tell me please when the rolling's over
A                     B         E
Me and my baby gonna' have some fun
E                   F#m
Bury our backs in a bed of clover
B                        A        E
Smile in style while the sun goes down
E          F#m  G#m    E
Snake eyes cry, boxcar sigh
A                              F#m       E
Oh, seven's in the middle just wondering why
E              F#m     G#m         E
The dark don't lie and dreams come true
A               B      E
All it takes is one or two
A                     F#m     E
Maybe just a few will see you through
A                     B       E
Maybe just a few will see you through
