D
Color me once color me twice
Everything gonna turn out nice
G
Everlasting arms
D
You gotta keep me from these false alarms
Alarmalarm I see you sad
Maybe I see you I'm glad
G d
Maybe maybe the fire of her desire
Patience patience said the man
Patience patience I can't understand
G
Patience like a man and a wife
D
I got patience on my neck like a cold cold knife
I say jack be nimble jack fall dead
Jack bend over and give jilly head
G d
Oh you gotta help my body heal my soul

Bass solo:

Verse 2:
D
Dead men working a sinner a saint
Mixing up a pail of paint
G
Painted the houseblack as night
D
When the sun came up the house was white
Gotta go on
G
Gotta go on
We gotta go on
D
You gotta go on
You gotta go on
G
Go on
Go on
D
Try and live life like I couldn't
