On the broad backs of men, we never met with their pens and their stones,

A chord diagramG+G       A chord diagramC majorC
they did the same,

A chord diagramC majorC     A chord diagramG+G             A chord diagramA minorAm            A chord diagramG+G            A chord diagramFF
In the hours passed in the pubs, all the glasses were full and they were

wet to the sleeve.

Was a bleary-eyed night, drunk from the lights and the sounds of a city

A chord diagramC majorC
awake,

A chord diagramC majorC            A chord diagramG+G          A chord diagramA minorAm        A chord diagramG+G               A chord diagramFF              A chord diagramG+G

to take.

But a warmth was so clear, it betrayed her as nearly she glowed like those

lights on the bridge,

A chord diagramC majorC          A chord diagramG+G              A chord diagramA minorAm           A chord diagramG+G              A chord diagramFF           A chord diagramG+G
And a pain in my side, as I was drawn to her pride like the rise of the wind

to the ridge.

you to stay.

She wants one too with someone heart as true as this prison made of stone,

A chord diagramFF              A chord diagramG+G                          A chord diagramC majorC
Patiently, she waits there for me to come home,

A chord diagramFF            A chord diagramG+G                      A chord diagramC majorC
Patiently, I wait to be free and be home.
