Hard Times in Babylon




Eliza Gilkyson - Hard Times In Babylon

## NOTE: F ~ ~ ~ G = Walk-down from F to G ##
CAPO: 4th Fret



INTRO: C  

I light a candle in your name
F                                          C
Long past midnight, memories bright in the freeze frame
       F  ~   ~ ~    G
And I'm asking myself why


                C
I see you at the Marriott
F                                              C
Funny little grin, driving those drums like a chariot
      F    ~   ~    ~  G
Did it hurt too much to try?


CHORUS:
                  F
Woody, you were my hero
                                           C   F
A shoulder to cry on when I bottomed out at ze__ro
                      C                     G
And in the hour of the wolf, just before the dawn
     F           C
Hard times in Babylon



O.K. so you had to go
      F                                                C
Take a walk on the wild side, down to the valley of the shadow
      F    ~     ~    ~    G
But it just don't seem like you


                     C
Woody, you could have called out
             F                                         C   
There's not a man or woman gathered here tonight in the big house
            F   ~  ~    ~   G
Who wouldn't run to pull you through


CHORUS:
             F
An incident so grievous
                                                            C     F
Twenty years ago, who thought this was the way that you will leave us
                  C                     G
In the hour of the wolf, just before the dawn
     F           C
Hard times in Babylon


BRIDGE:
F
Got to hang together when the air's this thin

Hand out the masks for the oxygen
Am       G        F
Live for something

We're coming upon a time in our lives
                                                  Am
When the little dream lives but the big dream dies
      G        F
Not for nothing
Am     G        F
Not for nothing


INSTRUMENTAL:   C   F   C   F ~  ~  ~ G  


CHORUS:
           F
I know that love don't end
                                                  C        F
Nothing I can do is gonna bring you back or let me see you again
                      C                     G
And in the hour of the wolf, just before the dawn
     F           C   F
Hard times in Babylon
                  C                     G
In the hour of the wolf, just before the dawn
     F           C
Hard times in Babylon
