Album: Second Hand Clothing
Copyright 1999 Songs On the ForeFront (SESAC)
Tabbed by Kirk Bozeman (

Lyrics posted with express permission from Eli

Capo 4

// Intro
C  C/B  Am7  (2x)

// Verse
        C     C/B   Am7
This is not a rebel song
     C     C/B   Am7
It's not a rebel song
But I am bleeding

          C          C/B       Am
He said I crawled on hands and knees
  C         C/B      Am
I pushed my way thru brush and trees
      C        C/B          Am
But a deaf man sees what he wants to see
            Em           D
While he is reading

// Refrain
G                 C
  Six o'clock and all is well tonight
G                           C
  I saw a horseman -- he was bloodied from the fight
Em                         C
  He read thru pages as he tried to warn us all
Em                        C        D
  He gave up and left the writings on the wall

C  C/B  Am7  (2x)

// Verse
So we gathered 'round the square
Multitudes of empty stares
Well, we couldn't admit that we were scared
Of his revelation

So we came in from the cold
Ignoring what we had been told
Reaping what we shouldn't have sown
Like devastation

// Repeat refrain
C  C/B  Am7  (2x)

Now upon us comes the siege
So much smoke it's hard to breathe
Well, someone call the cavalry
It's too late -- we're choking

Well, it comes as no surprise
The horseman wasn't telling lies
But we all chose to criticize
Well, he wasn't joking (too late)

// Repeat refrain (2x)
