Embrace Me, You Child from No Secrets - 1972

G
At night in bed        
                        D       G
I heard God whisper lullabyes
Gmaj7
While Daddy next door
                   A
Whistled whiskey tunes
        G
And sometimes when I wanted
               D       G
They would harmonize 
G7                                      C
There was nothing those two couldn't do

    D             G
Embrace me you child
            C
You're a child of mine
            D                C       G
And I'm leaving everything I am to you
D              G          C
Go chase the wild and night time streets sang "Daddy"
     D         C         Bb                  G
And God sang "Pray the devil doesn't get to you"

G                        F                  D     G
I thought together they must sing the moon away
Gmaj7                                   A                                   
I thought that they must know each other well
G                        F           
For the magic that they made
           D       G
When they played
G7                                      C
Wasn't lost between their Heaven and their Hell

    D             G
Embrace me you child
            C
You're a child of mine
            D                C       G
And I'm leaving everything I am to you
D              G          C
Go chase the wild and night time streets sang "Daddy"
     D         C         Bb                  G
And God sang "Pray the devil doesn't get to you"

G           
Then one night Daddy died
               D
And went to Heaven
Gmaj7  
And God came down to earth
              A
And slipped away
G    
I pretended not to know
             D      G
I'd been abandoned
G7                                     C
But no one sang the night into the day
G                       F         D    G
And later night time songs came back again
           Gmaj7
But the singers don't compare
               A
With those I knew
G         
And I never figured out
      F         G
Where God and Daddy went
G7                                         C
But there was nothing those two couldn't do

    D             G
Embrace me you child
            C
You're a child of mine
            D                C       G
And I'm leaving everything I am to you
D              G          C
Go chase the wild and night time streets sang "Daddy"
     D         C         Bb                  G
And God sang "Pray the devil doesn't get to you"

D     G     D    G   D  G
