The Twist

Intro:  Dm  Am7  Bb  C  4 x

Dm         Am7
Hang on, believe
Bb                  C
Theres nothing up my sleeve
Dm            Am7          Bb          C
I've got no magic tricks to save the day
Dm               Am7
Put down the gun
Bb                        C
You're not helping anyone
Dm              Am7              Bb      C
And I'm not about to run or back away
Dm         Am7
Don't walk the fence                                  
Bb                  C
Then come to my defense
Dm            Am7               Bb          C
I don't need fair weather kinds of friends around
Dm         Am7
So watch and pray
Bb                  C
As a traitor's kiss betrays
Dm            Am7               Bb          C
And rest your feet of clay on shaky ground

CHORUS
Gm7   (play the bar chord)
And look me in the face, at least what's left of it
A7
Tell me you still love me just a little bit
     Gm7
Or nail me down, break the skin /  Hard enough to do me in
A7
But don't leave me hanging / Dying and dangling
A7
Twisting in the wind

Dm         Am7
Here, touch my side
Bb                  C
Let doubt be crucified
Dm            Am7               Bb          C
Nailed with your wounded pride to love's grim altar
Dm         Am7
Here, taste my flesh
Bb                  C
My bloody humanness
Dm            Am7               Bb          C
I am no phantom guest, No skinless martyr
Dm         Am7
So taste and feel
Bb                  C
There's nothing to conceal
Dm            Am7               Bb          C
You always knew the deal was sacrifice
Dm         Am7
Stand up, be strong
Bb                  C
When all you've got is gone
Dm            Am7               Bb          C
I left the light turned on in paradise

Chorus

Solo  Dm  Am7  Bb  C 8 X

Chorus

Dm         Am7
And when the walls cave in
Bb                  C
And the curtain's torn asunder
Dm            Am7               Bb          C
You'll know we're near the end / You'll hear me in the thunder
Dm         Am7
And when the sun grows dim
Bb                  C
This will be your sign and wonder
Dm            Am7               Bb          C
That soon we'll meet again / Just like me did last summer
Dm            Am7               Bb          C  repeat to end
