[Verse 1]

E                B7sus4    Asus2           E
'Twas in another lifetime, one of toil and blood
     E               B7sus4         Asus2
When blackness was a virtue and the road was full of mud
E                  B7sus4      Asus2
I came in from the wilderness, a creature void of form.
      E                    B7sus4   Asus2            E
"Come in," she said, "I'll give you shelter from the storm."

[Verse 2]

E                B7sus4    Asus2           E
And if I pass this way again, you can rest assured
     E               B7sus4         Asus2
I'll always do my best for her, on that I give my word
E                  B7sus4      Asus2
In a world of steel-eyed death, and men who are fighting to be warm.
      E                    B7sus4   Asus2            E
"Come in," she said, "I'll give you shelter from the storm."

[Verse 3]

E                B7sus4    Asus2           E
Not a word was spoke between us, there was little risk involved
     E               B7sus4         Asus2
Everything up to that point had been left unresolved.
E                  B7sus4      Asus2
Try imagining a place where it's always safe and warm.
      E                    B7sus4   Asus2            E
"Come in," she said, "I'll give you shelter from the storm."

[Verse 4]

E                B7sus4    Asus2           E
I was burned out from exhaustion, buried in the hail,
     E               B7sus4         Asus2
Poisoned in the bushes an' blown out on the trail,
E                  B7sus4      Asus2
Hunted like a crocodile, ravaged in the corn.
      E                    B7sus4   Asus2            E
"Come in," she said, "I'll give you shelter from the storm."

[Verse 5]

E                B7sus4    Asus2           E
Suddenly I turned around and she was standin' there
     E               B7sus4         Asus2
With silver bracelets on her wrists and flowers in her hair.
E                  B7sus4      Asus2
She walked up to me so gracefully and took my crown of thorns.
      E                    B7sus4   Asus2            E
"Come in," she said, "I'll give you shelter from the storm."

[Verse 6]

E                B7sus4    Asus2           E
Now there's a wall between us, somethin' there's been lost
     E               B7sus4         Asus2
I took too much for granted, got my signals crossed.
E                  B7sus4      Asus2
Just to think that it all began on a long-forgotten morn.
      E                    B7sus4   Asus2            E
"Come in," she said, "I'll give you shelter from the storm."

[Verse 7]

E                B7sus4    Asus2           E
Well, the deputy walks on hard nails and the preacher rides a mount
     E               B7sus4         Asus2
But nothing really matters much, it's doom alone that counts
E                  B7sus4      Asus2
And the one-eyed undertaker, he blows a futile horn.
      E                    B7sus4   Asus2            E
"Come in," she said, "I'll give you shelter from the storm."

[Verse 8]

E                B7sus4    Asus2           E
I've heard newborn babies wailin' like a mournin' dove
     E               B7sus4         Asus2
And old men with broken teeth stranded without love.
E                  B7sus4      Asus2
Do I understand your question, man, is it hopeless and forlorn?
      E                    B7sus4   Asus2            E
"Come in," she said, "I'll give you shelter from the storm."

[Verse 9]

E                B7sus4    Asus2           E
In a little hilltop village, they gambled for my clothes
     E               B7sus4         Asus2
I bargained for salvation an' they gave me a lethal dose.
E                  B7sus4      Asus2
I offered up my innocence and got repaid with scorn.
      E                    B7sus4   Asus2            E
"Come in," she said, "I'll give you shelter from the storm."

[Verse 10]

E                B7sus4    Asus2           E
Well, I'm livin' in a foreign country but I'm bound to cross the line
     E               B7sus4         Asus2
Beauty walks a razor's edge, someday I'll make it mine.
E                  B7sus4      Asus2
If I could only turn back the clock to when God and her were born.
      E                    B7sus4   Asus2            E
"Come in," she said, "I'll give you shelter from the storm."
