         D                        Cadd9
He got a new mercy, a new grace, Street corner preacher with the angry 
             Em7                                 G*
face, He got two years off, for good behavior , Back in the neighborhood
                                                                    
 working for the savior,
        D                                          Cadd9 
That's two old ladies and a junkie now, now He can see for sure that his 
                            Em7

            G*
neighbor, Back in the neighborhood working for the savior,

Well, he understands the need for living it large, But it's hard to get a job 
                                Em7
with a felony charge, Now he's working in a hospital washing dishes, 
G*
Walking through the fields of the lost inhibitions,
          D                                         Cadd9
There is death every breath , a new benediction, to save the liver from 
                                       Em7
awaking,  death is his conviction, The eyes of man, well he seeks no
         G*                                             D                             
 favor, back in the neighborhood working for the savior

But there's a whole lotta trouble all around, Every night the same old siren
D                 Cadd9       G           D        Cadd9             G             
 Sound, There's a whole lotta trouble all around, Children soldiers in this 
           D
battle ground

Chorus
Verse:
        D                                Cadd9
Well, a new sun and a second chance, He unbolts the door and hops over 


                  Em7                                       G*                         
the fence, Young woman with a baby that her daddy gave her, back in the 

neighborhood working for the savior,  
      D                          Cadd9
But all around the war rages on, burnt out houses with the front door gone, 
         Em7                                            G*
Well his faith is his fountain, his love is his labor, Back in the neighborhood 
                                       D
working for the savior, 
Cadd9  Em7      G
Whoa,  yeah,    ahh

             Em7                                G*
face, He got two years off for good behavior,  back in the neighborhood 
                                      D*
working for the savior
