C F C F CI dreamt of being horses in shackles of gold
C Am Bb FAnd the men that were young then are now terribly old
C F CThe graveyard was creaking with too many bones
C Am Bb F While the bishop was praying his cassock was sold
C F CThree cheers for the innocent though he is perverse
C Am Bb F Three screams for the hangman as he cries for the hearse
C F CI weep for the rebels conventional ways
C Am Bb F For he loses his mind while the devious stay
C G By the way
C F Em If the world saluted you
Dm G Dm Well what would you do if you could be there
GWell would you still take me
Would you take me anywhere
C F Em If the world saluted you
Dm F DmWell what would you say when things were down
Dm G Would you still want me
Would you want me around C F Em Dm C C F C
C F C So come all ye faithful and slaughter your lambs
C Am Bb F Your minds have been whipped by experienced hands
C F C I wish we were children I'd welcome the change
Dm Bb F And the mind of an old man you can't rearrange
GAin't it strange
C F Em If the world saluted you
Dm C Bm Dm Well what would you do if you could be there
GWould you still
Em G Would you still take me anywhere
C F Em If the world saluted you
Dm F Dm What would you say when things were down
GWould you still want me
Would you still want me around
C F Em Dm OOooooooooohhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!
