                Lost Unto This World
Written by Emmylou Harris & Danniel Lanois
Recorded by Harris Emmylou

(Intro.)
(C)Hmm (E)hmm (F)hmm (C)hmm, hmm (E)hmm (F)hmm (C)hmm

I was (C)once some mother's (E)darlin', some (F)daddy's little (C)girl
More precious than the (E)ruby, more (F)cherished than the (C)pearl
My (E)heart was full of (C)mercy and my (E)forehead full of (C)curl
(Dm)Now I am (F)nothing and am lost unto this world

(Chorus)
I am (C)lost unto this (E)world, I am (F)lost unto this (C)world
I am lost unto this (E)world, I am (F)lost unto this (C)world

They (C)herded me like (E)cattle, (F)cut me down like (C)corn
Took me from my (E)babies be-(F)fore they could be (C)born
You can (E)blame it on the (C)famine, you can (E)blame it on the (C)war
You can (Dm)blame it on the (F)devil, it don't matter anymore

(Chorus)
I am (C)lost unto this (E)world, I am (F)lost unto this (C)world
I am lost unto this (E)world, I am (F)lost unto this (C)world

I was (C)tortured in the (E)desert, I was (F)raped out on the (C)pain
I was murdered by the (E)high way and my (F)cries went up in (C)vain
My (E)blood is on the (C)mountain, my (E)blood is on the (C)sand
My (Dm)blood runs in the (F)river that now washes thru their hands

Repeat Chorus
I am (C)lost unto this (E)world, I am (F)lost unto this (C)world
I am lost unto this (E)world, I am (F)lost unto this (C)world

Oh, (F)can I get no witness this un-(C)holy tale to (E)tell
Was God the (Dm)only one there (F)watching and weeping as l fell

(C)Hmm (E)hmm (F)hmm (C)hmm, hmm (E)hmm (F)hmm (C)hmm

Oh, (C)you among the (E)living, will you re-(F)member me at (C)all
Will you write my (E)name out with a (F)single finger (C)scrawl
A-(E)cross a broken (C)window in some (E)long forgotten (C)wall
That goes (Dm)stretching out for-(F)ever where the (Fb9)tears of heaven fall 

Repeat Chorus twice
