They raised the bar when it was my turn  F6 C7
they raised the glass each time I fell.  F6       F7 Bbm7       Bbm6
They'll raise their eyebrows high and wonder why  F6 C7
when I start raising hell. G7 C7
     
They offered me a seat at the table  F6 C7
if I would just put on this mask,  F6       F7 Bbm7       Bbm6
and keep my shop downtown, the riffraff down, F6 C7
 The whiskey in my flask Gm9    C7 F6       F7
     
The hourglass, the hunting dogs,  Bb6 A7
the fireplace, crackling logs.  Dm      Dm/C# Dm/C       Dm/B
Some Christians sing a Christmas song.  G7  
It's crystal clear I don't belong. Gb7 C7
     
It's awful far from here to Canaan.  F6 C7
And who's to say they'd have me there?  F6       F7 Bbm7       Bbm6
Maybe I'll settle down in some new town  F6 C7
that I can call somewhere. Gm9    C7 F6       F7
     
instr. Bb6 A7
  Dm      Dm/C# Dm/C       Dm/B
  G7  
  Gb7 C7

Maybe I'll settle down in some new town  F6 C7
that I can call somewhere. Gm9    C7 F6       F7
