[Chorus]
G                                  C
Lay back, lay back, go to sleep my man
G                                      C
Wipe the blood from your face and your hands
G                                      C
Forgive yourself if you think you can
G                   D        C
Go to sleep, go to sleep my man

[Intro Riff]

[Verse]
G                             C
Twenty-one days lost at sea I fought
G                                   C
For twenty-two years non-stop I've talked
G                                                C
Through the desert, p**sed drunk, and confused I walked
G                     D             C
I spit a tooth in the palm of my hand

[Chorus]
G                                  C
Lay back, lay back, go to sleep my man
G                                      C
Wipe the blood from your face and your hands
G                                      C
Forgive yourself if you think you can
G                   D        C
Go to sleep, go to sleep my man

[Verse]
G                                             C
Well the wind and the trees are ganging up on me
G                               C
They sing my funeral song in harmony
G                                       C
Well I just want to walk home unaccompanied
G                                D                  G
But they keep singing they keep singing they keep singing
           C                   G          D        C
they keep singing they keep singing and singing to me

[Bridge with Intro Riff]
G           D             C
La, La, La, La, La, La (Singing to me)
G           D             C
La, La, La, La, La, La (I hear them singing)
G           D             C
La, La, La, La, La, La (Oh!)

G           D             C

[Verse]
G                                             C
Well I wish things were different, true, and deep
G                                                    C
But everything that's so shallow is everything about me
G                                                    C
You know they told me I could just take my money and leave
G                         D                   C
I hope the people on the ground will understand
G                         D                   C
I hope the people in the crowd will understand

[Chorus]
G                                  C
Lay back, lay back, go to sleep my man
G                                      C
Wipe the blood from your face and your hands
G                                  C
Forgive yourself if you think you can
G                   D        C
Go to sleep, go to sleep my man (La, La)
G                   D        C
Go to sleep, go to sleep my man (La, La)
G                   D        C
Go to sleep, go to sleep my man
