Gun Club: "The Light Of The World" (from the "Death Party" EP)


intro:    (spoken) "I don't really wanna go through this, tell him to come in here,
          'cause ... he, he, he ..."
 

          8 times F#, first 4 times guitar only        

F#                         D
I thought I heard you say
B                      F#
thought you said you miss me
B                  F#
but you were only history
D           A
when I was gone

I thought I heard you say
they've done you in good
and yes, I believe they would
may I console you


                       G
    But I did you no wrong
    Bm                                 G
    that's not like me, I did you no wrong
    Bm                    
    so don't put it all on me
                G       A            D
    and you're not the light of the world
              G   D   A
    but you shine on me
                G       A            D
    no, you're not the light of the world
              G   D   A
    but you shine on me
                G       A            D
    no, you're not the light of the world now
                G       A            D
    no, you're not the light of the world now


I heard you walk
under the black skid of dead         (not sure)
to hurt me, and yes it's sad
has this settled the score

I thought I heard you walk
up the fire-escape last night
and yes, in the deep of the night
I wished you were back


    But I did you no wrong
    that's not like me, I did you no wrong
    so don't put it all on me
    and you're not the light of the world
    but you shine on me
    no, you're not the light of the world
    but you shine on me
    no, you're not the light of the world now
    no, you're not the light of the world now


instrumental = verse: F# D
                        B F#
                        B F#
                        D A


    But I did you no wrong
    that's not like me, I did you no wrong
    so don't blame it all on me
    and you're not the light of the world
    but you shine on me
    no, you're not the light of the world
    but you shine on me
    no, you're not the light of the world now
    no, you're not the light of the world now
    no, you're not the light of the world now
    no, you're not the light of the world
