Chris Whitley
Chain (APOLOGIES TO TADPOLE)


ROUND AND ROUND
IT GOES ROUND
ROUND AND ROUND
I WANT TO BREAK
THE RING AT LAST
WATCH IT FADE
WITH THE PAST
ALL I EVER HEAR
THE FAMILIAR SOUND
OF A CHAIN
THAT GOES AROUND AND AROUND
IT GOES
ROUND AND ROUND
IT GOES ROUND
ROUND AND ROUND
WIDE AWAKE
IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE
ALL THEM YEARS
WENT FLASHING BY
UNAWARE YOU PASS IT DOWN
AND A CHAIN
GOES AROUND AND AROUND
IT GOES ROUND
ROUND AND ROUND
IT GOES ROUND
ROUND AND ROUND
AS WE SWAY ON NOW
TO AND FRO
AND THE SHAME SOMEHOW RELAYS
THE OLD
AS THE CHILD REHEARSE THE SOUND
AND THE CHAIN
GOES ROUND AND ROUND
IT GOES ROUND
ROUND AND ROUND
IT GOES ROUND
ROUND AND ROUND
