G            Bm9       C          G
My hands are wrapped in your raven hair
       G     Bm9          C
In the faded picture on the back stair
        C                Bm9   C
We were narrow, we were steady, trembling and ready
   C               D          G
To give it Hell in this rocky world

G             Bm9              C           G
You said do I look like I could be a strong mother
    G              Bm9      C
And raise the good side of a young daughter
       C     Bm9       C
In the hotel Shangri-La let me tell you
          C                  D          G
I've been thinking of her in this rocky world

G          Bm9         C           G
Chicago is heavy, but I can't turn around
    G              Bm9           C
I'm smuggling that whiskey, every flesh and pound
C          Bm9       C
Michigan I worry, and Susie I'm sorry
       C                   D           G
That I lost you out there in the rocky world

          C          Bm9       C
Would you build me a building a chapel up there
       G          Bm9         C
At the top of the hill in the still blue air
         C            Bm9    C
Near the weather vane, by the track and train
        C                  D         G
I'll be looking for you in the rocky world

G             Bm9       C          G
She's turning twenty and out on the make
G            Bm9            C
Pounding the blacktop with a habit to shake
       C            Bm9          C
She's looking for a manger in the eyes of a stranger
C                   D          G
Down on the streets of a rocky world

G           Bm9       C          G
Jenny has religion she sings in a church
      G        Bm9      C
She's made a decision to colour her hair
    C                 Bm9           C
The Black man cut the sugar cane she watches the rain
     C            D              G
In a building far from the rocky world

          C        Bm9           C
Yeah I'll tell you something I'll never forget
    G            Bm9   C
The sight of you in silhouette
        C          Bm9      C
Outside Sault Ste. Marie you really threw me
         C                 D          G
When you pulled me down to your rocky bed

     G           Bm9  C         G
In a crowded room I stood there empty
G              Bm9       C
Looking for salvation and glory be
       C              Bm9       C
When a shot turned my head and I saw you instead
     C   D         G
Walk into my rocky world

Alright, there we go...Anybody else out there have more Lanois tunes to
