Living Proof  (from the album "Lucky Town")


Well now on a summer night in a dusky room
D                          G

Come a little piece of the Lord's undying light

Crying like he swallowed the fiery moon
A                            G

In his mother's arms it was all the beauty I could take
D                                   G

Like the missing words to some prayer that I could never make
                 D                         A

In a world so hard and dirty so fouled and confused
     G                          D

Searching for a little bit of God's mercy
G                                  A

I found living proof
  G                   D  G  D

I put my heart and soul I put 'em hight upon a shelf
Right next to the faith the faith that I'd lost in myself
I went down into the desert city
Just tryin' so hard to shed my skin
I crawled deep into some kind of darkness
Lookin' to burn out every trace of who I'd been
You do some sad sad things baby
When it's your you 're tryin' to lose
You do some sad and hurtfull things
I've seen living proof

You shot through my anger and rage

To show me my prison was just an open cage

There were no keys no guards

Just one frightened man and some old shadows for bars
     G                               A              D   G   D

Well now all that's sure on the boulevard
Is that life is just a house of cards
As fragile as each and every breath
Of this boy sleepin' in our bed
Tonight let's lie beneath the eaves
Just a close band of happy thieves
And when that train comes we'll get on board
And steal what we can from the treasures treasures of the Lord
It's been along long drought baby
Tonight the rain's pourin' down on our roof
Looking for a little bit of God's mercy
I found living proof   Oh, living proof  I found living proof  Yeah living proof
  G                        D                           G              D
