Childhood living is easy to do
The things you wanted I bought them for you
Graceless lady, you know who I am
You know I can't let you slide through my hands

Wild horses couldn't drag me away
Wild, wild horses couldn't drag me away

I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
Now you decided to show me the same
No sweeping exits or offstage lines
Can make me feel bitter or treat you unkind
Wild Horses couldn't drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldn't drag me away

I know I dreamed you a sin and a lie
I have my freedom but I don't have much time
Faith has been broken tears must be cried
let's do some living after we die
Wild Horses, couldn't drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldn't drag me away

Wild Horses couldn't drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we'll ride them someday

    I need to correct a couple of chording mistakes. In the chorus when the lyrics are wild horses couldn't drag me away, there is a missing fmaj followed by c maj right after the words "drag" f maj. "away" c maj.

    There doesn't appear to be anywhere else on this web page to make corrections to the chords except in this place,
