       G                      C
on the sunday after the mason dance
         G                C
its the one day I can remember when
          G                    C
I felt so pure and really at peace with myself
          G                         C
I was in love, the sun sang down victorious

        Em            G         Am            D
but the truth is that I have no faith in happiness
             Em              G
it turns to fear, draws the devils near
    Am           D
so I jumped the fence
             C (walk down to Am)   
and went out west
