{Verse riff}
(Bm)
Blood from a stone
(G)
Water from wine.
(Bm)           (G)
Born under earplay design.
(Bm)
A stroke of bad luck,
      (G)
wrong place, wrong time.
(Bm)		(G)
This flyer is out of the lime.


D                       G         Em
The story is a sad one, told many times.
D                       G      Em
The story of my life in trying times.
D               G       Em
Just add water, stir in lime.
D                                 A
How the west was won and where it got us.


{Verse riff}
Canary got trapped, the uranium mine.
A stroke of bad luck, now the bird has died.
a marker to mark where my tears run dry.
I cross it, bless it, alkali.


D                       G         Em
The story is a sad one, told many times.
D                       G      Em
The story of my life in trying times.
D               G       Em
Just add water, stir in lime.
D                                 A

{Piano solo}

{Verse riff}
I didn't wear glasses cause I thought it might rain.
Now I can't see anything.
I made a mistake, chalked it up to design.
I cracked through time, space, Godless and dry.
I point my nose to the northern star,
watch the decline from a hazy distance.

D                       G         Em
The story is a sad one, told many times.
D                       G      Em
The story of my life in trying times.
D               G       Em
Just add water, stir in lime.
D                                 A
How the west was won and where it got us.
