Chord sequence: (two bars of each) B B E B F# E B B crd lyr B Take a little walk to the edge of town, go across the tracks B Where the viaduct looms like a bird of doom, as it shifts and cracks E Where secrets lie in the border fires, in the humming wires, Hey man, you know you're never coming back B Past the square, past the bridge, past the mills, past the stacks F# On a gathering storm comes a tall handsome man E In a dusty black coat with a red right hand B B B He'll wrap you in his arms, tell you that you've been a good boy B He'll rekindle all the dreams it took you a lifetime to destroy E He'll reach deep into the hole, heal your shrinking soul, But there won't be a single thing that you can do B He's a ghost, he's a god, he's a man, he's a guru F# They're whispering his name through this disappearing land E But hidden in his coat is a red right hand B B B You don't own no money? He'll get you some B You don't have no car? He'll get you one E You don't have no self respect, you feel like an insect, Well don't you worry buddy cause here he comes B Through the ghetto and the barrio and the bowery and the slum F# A shadow is cast wherever he stands E Stacks of green paper in his red right hand B Solo #1

crd lyr B You'll see him in your nightmares, you'll see him in your dreams B He'll appear out of nowhere but he aint what he seems E You'll see him in your head, on the TV screen And hey buddy, I'm warning you to turn it off B He's a ghost, he's a god, he's a man, he's a guru F# You're one microscopic cog in his catastrophic plan E Designed and directed by his Red Right Hand B Solo #2
