Cowboy Junkies Lyrics




Intro:  C Am C Am


     C                 Am                   
This street holds its secrets
       C               Am
like a cobra holds its kill
     C                 Am
This street minds its business
       C                Am
like a jailer minds his jail
     F              G
That house there is haunted
    C                   F
That door's a portal to hell
C                     G              C  Am  C  Am
This street holds its secrets   very well

    C              Am
That man wears his skin
       C                Am
like a dancer wears her veils
    C               Am
That man stalks his victims
       C               Am
like a cancer stalks a cell
F                   G
That man's soul has left him
               C                 F
his heart's as deadly as a rusty nail
C                  G             C  Am C Am
That man sheds his skin  like a veil

Dm               G
Lord, you play a hard game
            F             C
you know we follow every rule
C                 F
Then you take the one thing
   C              F       
we thought we'd never lose
Dm               Am
All I ask is if she's with you
       C                  F
please keep her warm and safe
                   G
and if its in your power
                 (stop)                 C Am C Am
please purge the memory,...of this place.

C                   Am
This life holds its secrets
       C                  Am
like a seashell holds the sea
C                Am
soft and distand calling
       C         Am
like a faded memory
F                 G
This life has its victories
        C               F
but its defeats tear so viciously
C                   G
This life holds its secrets
           C   Am  C   Am
  like the sea.
