   D              A              D
if you walk away i'll walk away
       D             A             D
first tell me which road you will take
B                A               D            B
i don't want to risk our paths crossing some day
   D                    A                D
so you walk that way, i'll walk this way

and the future hangs over our heads
and it moves with each current event
until it falls all around like a cold, steady rain
just stay in when it's looking this way

and the moons laying low in the sky
forcing everything metal to shine
and the sidewalk holds diamonds
like the jewelry store case
you walk that way, i'll walk this way

and laura's asleep in my bed
as i'm leaving she wakes up and says
i dreamed you were carried away
on the crest of a wave
baby don't go away, come here

and there's kids playing guns in the street
and one's pointing his tree branch at me
so i put my hands up
i say enough is enough
if you walk away i'll walk away
and he shot me dead

B            A      D      B           A        D
  i found a liquid cure      for my landlocked blues
         G    A           D    B
it will pass away like a slow parade
        D            A             D
it's leaving but i don't know how soon

Guitar solo
[ Tab from: ]
and the world's got me dizzy again
you'd think after 22 years i'd be used to the spin
and it only feels worse when i stay in one place
so i'm always pacing around or walking away

i keep drinking the ink from my pen
and i'm balancing history books up on my head
but it all boils down to one beautiful phrase
if you love something give it away

a good woman will pick you apart
a box full of suggestions for your possible heart
but you may be offended and you may be afraid
but don't walk away, don't walk away

we made love on the living room floor
with the noise in the background from the televised war
and in the deafening pleasure
i thought i heard someone say
if we walk away they'll walk away

but greed is a bottomless pit
and our freedom's a joke we're just taking a piss
and the whole world must watch the sad comic display
if you're still free start running away
cause we're coming for you

Horn solo

i've grown tired of holding this pose
i feel more like a stranger each time i come home
so i'm making a deal with the devils of fame
saying let me walk away, please

you'll be free, child, once you have died
from the shackles of language and measurable time
and then we can trade places, play musical grace
till then walk away, walk away, walk away, walk away

B       A         D
 so i'm out that door
B        A       D
 putting on my shoes
        G       A
i just want to make
   D      B
a clean escape
       D          A                 D
i'm leaving but i don't know where to
       B          A                 D
i'm leaving but i don't know where to
