  G5  
  I had the shit till it all got smoked
  D
  I kept the promise till the vow got broke
  D
  I had to drink from the lovin' cup
    G5
  I stood on the banks till the river rose up
  C
  I saw the bride in her wedding gown

  I may be old and I may be bent
  But I had the money till it all got spent
  I had the money till they made me pay
  Then I had the sense to be on my way
  I had to stay in the underground
  I was in the house when the house burned down

   | C Em D G X3|

           D
       I helped Him carry his cross through town
       G5                            D
       I was in the house when the house burned down
