Am G C D G7 D G The things that you wanted, I bought them for you. Bm G Bm G Graceless lady, you know who I am; Am C D G D You know I can't let you slide through my hands. Am C D G F C Wild horses couldn't drag me away; Bm Am C G F C Wild, wild horses couldn't drag me away. I watched you suffer a dull aching pain. Now you decided to show me the same. No sweeping exit or off-stage lines Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind. Wild horses couldn't drag me away; Wild, wild horses couldn't drag me away. I know I've dreamed you, a sin and a lie. I have my freedom, but I don't have much time. Faith has been broken, tears must be cried. Let's do some living after we die. Wild horses couldn't drag me away; Wild, wild horses, we'll ride them someday. G F C G We'll ride them someday. "CAN'T YOU HEAR ME KNOCKING" Rhythm
