Cowboy Junkies Lyrics




Intro:  E* (x2)

Verse:

E                      A
Baby's in the back lot breathin' real heavy
         B                          A         E
Said the boys in the alley wouldn't leave her alone
E                        A
Mama did her makeup in a terrible hurry
    B                         A         E
She finally got ready but the boys were gone
A                     B
Mama don't you worry, night's approachin'
          A                         B         E
There's a hole in heaven where some sin slips through
E                         A
Just close your eyes, and dream real steady
B                        A        E
Maybe just a little will spill on you

E

Chorus:

E          A      B
Dark don't lie
            E*
Dreams come true
A                      E
All it takes is one or two

Verse:  "Old lady rose, lookin' down her nose..."
Chorus:  "Won't be long, I won't be gone..."
Verse:  "Those in the know, say so it goes..."
Chorus:  "Snake eyes cry, boxcars sigh..."
Chorus:   "Dark don't lie, dreams come true..."
(then repeat the A  E sequence for: "Maybe just a few will see you through")
(and repeat it twice more without words for the Outtro)
