                                               I hold you
|G    Gadd2  |Gadd2sus   G       |G    Gadd2 |Gadd2sus    G               |   
In my arms                as the band plays                 What are those
|G    Gadd2         |Gadd2sus  G             |
Words whispered baby              Just as you
|D5       |         |
Turn away          I

Saw you last night out on the
Edge of town, I wanna 
Read your mind to know just what I've
Got in this new thing I've found, so tell me

|Em    G       |C     G        |
What I see                When I

|Em          G        |C    G       |
Look in your eyes             Is that

|Em  G  |D5   Em          |
You      baby   or just a

|C          |G         |D5            |
Brilliant disguise

|G  Gadd2  |Gadd2sus  G  |G  Gadd2  |Gadd2sus  G                  |
                                                  I heard somebody
|G        Gadd2|Gadd2sus  G             |
Call your name               from under-
  .        .     .        .

Neath our willow, I saw something
Tucked in shame under-
|D5              |                  |
Neath your pillow,         well I've
  .         .       .   .

Tried so hard baby, but I
Just can't see what a 
Woman like you is
Doing with me, so tell me

who I see when I
Look in your eyes, is that
You baby or just a
Brilliant disguise

|G  Gadd2  |Gadd2sus  G     |
|D5            |                       |
Look at me baby        struggling to do 
|G         Gadd2   |G    Gadd2        |
Everything right           and then it
|C             |Cmaj7   C     |
All falls apart           when
|G         Gadd2 |     G            |
Out go the lights         I'm just a
|D5           |                   |
Lonely pilgrim         I walk this
|C             |                            |
World in wealth       I want to know if it's
|D5              |                             |
You I don't trust,     'cause I damn sure don't

|G      Gadd2  |Gadd2sus   G  |G  Gadd2 |Gadd2sus   G                  | 
Trust myself                                           now you play the     

Loving woman, I'll play the
Faithful man but just don't
Look too close into the
Palm of my hand.  We

Stood at the alter, the gypsy swore our
Future was bright but
Come the wee wee hours, well maybe baby the
Gypsy lied, so when you 

Look at me, you better
Look hard and look twice, is that
Me baby or just a
Brilliant disguise

|G  Gadd2  |Gadd2sus  G  |G  Gadd2  |Gadd2sus  G              |
                                                   Tonight our
Bed is cold, I'm lost in the
Darkness of our love, God have
Mercy on the man who 
|D5                  |
Doubts what he's sure 
|G  Gadd2  |Gadd2sus  G  |G  Gadd2  |Gadd2sus  G  |

Repeat until fade
