How To Play

INTRO
Bm A
-----Standing alone
G                    F#
-----In the soot and stone
Bm                A
He draws from his holster
  G
A man
F#               Bm
Crawling alone
                A
In the soot and stone
   G                     F#
He makes his way half to death
   Bm          A
In time and in vain
  G                      F#
I wash my hands of yesterday
   Bm
If I should fall
   Ddim          D/A
If I should pass
            A
In one last stand
           Bm
Before the gates
           Ddim          D/A
Before the gates of hell
    A
Crawling alone
Bm                    A
In the soot and stone
             G                F#
He makes his way home half to death
Bm             A
Standing alone
                  G
In the soot and stone
        F#                   Bm
He draws from his holster, a man

When sun sets dusk and streets are cleared, well this town's rene- -gade is near
                            G                A       F#m   Bm
