E                           A
Well you're smolderin' with fly words,
C         D             E
Catch the moment on the run.
                            A
And you say there's nothin' easy
C         D                    E
About the plywood tract you're from.
                          A
And you stand inside your wind stilts;
D                      E
Watch the sentence act begun.
E                        G
So you say you lost your baby
A      C                  E
Do you know that you're the one.
                            A
With the stand to watch the trials go,
C            D                E
from here to there behind the scene.
E                          A
Throw your troubles to the moon trolls
C          D              E
To swallow up like stormy dreams.
                      A
Take an entrance to a stand-off,
D                         E
Looking if there's such a strife
                          G
And you say you lost your baby,
A         C              E
wondering if its in your life.
E                          A
Well you fly your banners Mondays,
C           D                E
that take a rise and fall in one.
                         A
Ask the questions of the pilgrims,
C       D                     E
As they come to pledge what's done.
                   A
Claim a tabernacle hillside
D                           E
where you'll sight the dyin' sun
                         G
So you say you lost your baby,
A         C                    E
Do you know that you're the one.
                         G
So you say you lost your baby,
A         C                    E
Do    you know that you're the one.
