G C
She reads the leaves and she leads the life
G D
That she learned so well from the old wives
Em D C D
It's so strange to arrange it, you know I wouldn't change it
Em D C D
But hear me if you're near me, can I just rearrange it?
G7
The watchman covers me
G7
With his remedy
G7
I can't see and it's hard to feel
D C D G
I think his magic might be real

I can't get to you from your garden gate
You know it's always locked by the magistrate
Now he don't care why you cry, he thinks it's just a lie
To get out, I don't doubt that you'd make a try
If the good times get you through
I know the dogs won't bother you
We'll be gone in moonshine time
I've got a place they'll never find

You know I do believe in your hexagram
But can you tell me how they all knew the plan?
Did you trip or slip on their gifts, you know you were just a con?
You knew it, why d'you do it, I've been hiding in the dark
Now I must be on my way
I guess you really have to stay
Inside the mission law
Down in Modock, Arkansas
