Caledonia Mission chords
The Band 1968  (Robbie Robertson) from Big Pink

G7 G C

    G                        C
She reads the leaves and she leads the life 
         G                        D
That she learned so well from the old wives 
        Em           D        C 
It's so strange to arrange it, you know I
wouldn't change it
    Em                D      C
But hear me if you're near me, can I just
rearrange it?

The watchman covers me  

With his remedy 
I can't see and it's hard to feel 
                  C             G
I think his magic might be real
G7 G C

G       G7                   C
I can't get to you from your garden gate
              G                    D
You know it's always locked by the magistrate  
             Em       D       C
Now he don't care why you cry, he thinks it's
just a lie  
   Em         D          C                  D
To get out, I don't doubt that you'd make a try

If the good times get you through 
I know the dogs won't bother you 
We'll be gone in moonshine time  
                         C          G
I've got a place they'll never find 

G7 G C

           G                  C
You know I do believe in your hexagram  
            G                    D
But can you tell me how they all knew the plan?  
        Em      D             C        
Did you trip or slip on their gifts you know were
just a con? 
    Em                 D    C                  D
You knew it, why d'you do it, I've been hiding in

the dawn

Now I must be on my way  

I guess you really have to stay  

Inside the mission walls  
D               C        G
Down in Modark, Arkansas 
G7 G C
