    C                             F
The ladies in my dream are so obliging.
     G                F               CG
They come on down to do the things I need.
       C                                     F
Whether skies are calm or cut apart by lightning,
         G                  F        C
theyre always there to minister to me.

Am              (F)
And at break of dawn
theyre sweetly shining,
Am                 F              G
and at quiet of midnight, cold and dim,
they say donít harm him.
And when I wake
just as their eyes are crying,
I see that bed
and I just want to climb back in.

         Am             F
But lets gather up your friends
             C               G
and drive up to that country inn.
        Am                 F
We can stay there, feeling water
       C               G
warmly wash across our skin,
            F          G
giving back all of our tears
so that we can cry them again.

G Am
G Am... (?)

You want to tell your dad you cant believe hes dying,
but lets just walk on down the hall and shut our mouths.
The AM radio is broken down and crying
as on this hour drive were silent to ourselves.

Lets go back up to your house,
And take our clothes off,
and just push and pull ourselves
until were deep inside of sleep.
And with your body next to me,
its sleepy sighing
sounds like waves upon a sea
too far to reach.

But Ill gather up my men
and try to sail on it again,
and well walk and quietly talk
all through the country of your skin,
made up of pieces of the places
that youve dreamed
and that youve been.
We will sleep outside in tents
upon this unfamiliar land,
and in the morning
well awake,
as a foreign dawning breaks,
my men and I
we will awake
lets try again.
