INTRO 
 
 
 
            F                    Csus  
Long legged shadows, Mississippi sunset, 
                        Dm                      Bb(add9) 
She was standing like a candle that hadn't been burned yet.  
             F                   Csus 
The wind was blowing clouds like ashes,  
                  Dm7                     Bb(add9) 
Had my hand in my pocket, reaching for my matches.  
F                             Dm 
I can see those cotton sheets dancin',  
Bb                               C 
On her momma's clothesline in my head.  
F                               Dm7 
From my lips a lucky strike was danglin',  
    Bb                        C 
The day was dying in a sea of red. 
 
 
 
              Dm              Bb 
Then came the night, warm and dark, 
             F                 C 
Draggin' its chains across our hearts. 
             Dm7                 Bb 
The moon was full, the grass was wet, 
          F                 C  
Making us scream, making us sweat. 
           Dm                            Bb(add9) 
Holding on tight... it was wrong, it was right, 
              F      Csus 
Then came the night. 
 
 
  
            F                    Csus 
There was a time when love was a flower, 
           Dm7                         Bb(add9) 
Now it's a vine that's climbin' up the tower. 
                   F              Csus 
And the river just rolls past the garden, 
                 Dm                     Bb 
Where love won't grow and the ground is hardened. 
F                               Dm7 
I can see that tired white flag flying, 
Bb                            C 
I can hear that ringing mission bell. 
F                               Dm7 
Telling of the innocence that's dying, 
  Bb                          Csus  C  
A sound that I remember oh so well. 
 
 
  
              Dm              Bb 
Then came the night, warm and dark, 
             F                 C 
Draggin' its chains across our hearts. 
             Dm7                 Bb 
The moon was full, the grass was wet, 
          F                 C 
Making us scream, making us sweat. 
          Dm               Bb 
Making us cling, making us claw, 
          F               C 
Making us rise, making us fall. 
          Dm              Bb  
Breath on breath, skin on skin, 
         F           C 
Can't go back there again. 
           Dm7                           Bb(add9) 
Holding on tight... it was wrong, it was right, 
              F     Csus 
Then came the night. 
                    Dm     Bb(add9) 
Yeah, then came the night. 
 
 
              F      Csus 
Then came the night, 
         Dm    Bb 
Oh yeah, yeah.
