G - (As transcribed above)
On the old forgotten crossways where the fourteen rivers did meet
G
The bones of our elders were lying in the street
G
On the dark and dusty desert like a ghost I've flown
G
I barely cried wherever I'd ride I ride I never found a home

C  D    G
Woe on me
 Am                       D
Somehow I will feel more free
G                               C
To wallow in the empty headed peace
Am                                      D
Where the plain hearted sorrows never cease

G
I am just a ramshackle I go from town to town
G
Where there is no shelter I lay down on the grown
G
I've killed for no reason I've pissed upon a kind
G
Cost them all and burned the bone when I've had the time

C  D    G
Woe on me
 Am                       D
Somehow I will feel more free
G                               C
To wallow in the empty headed peace
Am                                      D
Where the plain hearted sorrows never cease

G
Well there's saints and there are animals they've taken what they could
G
And it's written in the pages to do just what they should
G
Well they stood the test and burned the rest and tore them limb from limb
G
Like a fashion with no passion they open up their skin

C  D    G
Woe on me
 Am                       D
Somehow I will feel more free
G                               C
To wallow in the empty headed peace
Am                                      D
Where the plain hearted sorrows never cease
