Jeffrey Lee Pierce: "From Temptation To You" (from the "Wildweed" album)


instrumental = verse
C                        G           C
Oh, what blue daughter there in the sun
         G                 C
always claiming to be the one
           G                 Dm  F  G
who would drop that name on you
        Dm  F G             C
temptation ...  has passed you


You know what it takes to make the wind blow
what it takes to make minds grow
who could say go away to you
temptation has passed you


With your mind on fire and raving the end
you open the gates and welcome the men
saying I was never a friend of you
temptation don't want you


instrumental = verse


And the nights are hot beneath your feet
they cancel your eyes and your dreams
but that don't seem to bother you
temptation has passed you


Your cowboys drunk and you are at my door
the Indians summon and give you more
who would call that name on you
temptation don't want you


instrumental = verse


And don't you get sleepy in my bed
you're always painting my sheets red
don't play dead, because I know you
temptation has passed you


And it's cold and sick in the wind
the Indians come and speak of sins
it's going crazy again for you
temptation don't want you


instrumental = verse

end:	3x C / G
           C
