INTRO:

F C Dm C

VERSE:

F                            C
I'm seven years old, and my bow-ties askew
               Dm
Gonna get some body of Jesus Christ
     C
In a brown velvet suit
         F
All the girls are dressed like angels
     C
How sweetly they sang
   Dm
Oh be not afraid of
   C          
us delicate meringues

CHORUS:
     Bb                 F
The trailing skirts of God
     Bb                 F
The trailing skirts of God
     Bb                 F 
The trailing skirts of God
               C
Have passed on by


VERSE:
It's five years later and I'm on my knees again
I am here to confirm what my parents began
And I promise to abstain from intoxicating liquor
But the flesh, it is weak, 
and my faith was never stronger


CHORUS:

The trailing skirts of God
The trailing skirts of God
Yeah, The trailing skirts of God
Have passed on by

BRIDGE:

    Dm             C
But oh how I cling on
    Dm                       C
Cos it's been a rich seam of song
    Dm               F
And though it's make-believe
      C               Dm
Can I bring myself to leave
     Dm         C           F
This lie's been burning too long

VERSE:

Sometimes in my teens
Up in Kellyer's bedroom
Skipping on Saturday evening mass for some solvent abuse
As the world spun around me, 
and I eased to the floor
Must remember to get that sermon, 
and keep the wolf from the door

CHORUS:
          Bb                 F
Yeah, The trailing skirts of God
    Bb                 F
The trailing skirts of God
      Bb                 F                  C
Those trailing skirts of God Have passed on by
           C            C             C
Passed on By, Passed on By, Passed on By

OUTRO:
F                     C
I've drifted far from you
                  Dm
In this bloodless coup
                      C
I've drifted far from you

F                     C
I've drifted far from you
                  Dm
In this bloodless coup 
                   C
I say good-day and adieu
