Verse 1
C
Who are we sometimes I wonder
Em
Mercenaries or lovers
F                               C(^)
On this side of the thunder
G
It can be awful hard to know

Verse 2
C
Sell our love for the paycheck or
Em
Spend the night on the freight deck
F                                   C(^)
For all the dues that we collect
G
Our hearts can be overdrawn

Chorus
F                    C
Dead in the water
                              G
Like lamb to the slaughter
                                   Am  G     F
If the wind doesn’t sing  her song
                                     G
And I’m speaking in tongues
F              G                               C
Cause I need a Holy Ghost

Verse 3
C
The geeks they can smell when you’re coming
Em
Even out in the cold
F
They’ll wait you out yeah
C(^)
They’ll grind you down
G
But they’re gonna get what they’re owed

Verse 4
C
I know the red thread unravels
Em
I know you’re blue and you’re black
F                                  C(^)
But there’s still time if  you don’t mind
        G
The way that the odds are stacked

Chorus
F                    C
Dead in the water
                              G
Like lamb to the slaughter
                                    Am  G    F
If the wind doesn’t  sing her song
                                     G
And I’m speaking in tongues
F             G                                C
Cause I need a Holy Ghost
