Lyrics and Chords

[Capo 2]
Intro: / G Gsus2 Gsus4 G G Gsus2 Gsus4 G /
I hold you in my arms as the band plays
What are those words whispered baby just as you turn away
I saw you last night out on the edge of town
I wanna read your mind and know just what I've got in this new thing I've found
So tell me what I see when I look in your eyes
Is that you, baby, or just a brilliant disguise
/ Intro / G Gsus2 Gsus4 G Dsus4 D Dsus2 D / :

I heard somebody call your name from underneath our willow
I saw something tucked in shame underneath your pillow
Well I've tried so hard baby but I just can't see
What a woman like you is doing with me
So tell me who I see when I look in your eyes
Is that you, baby, or just a brilliant disguise
   Now look at me baby struggling to do everything right
   And then it all falls apart when out go the lights
   I'm just a lonely pilgrim, I walk this world in wealth
   I want to know if it's you I don't trust cause I damn sure don't trust myself
   / D - - - G - - - / C - - - G - - - /
      / D - - - C - - - / G - - - D - Dsus2 D /
Now you play the loving woman, I'll play the faithful man
But just don't look too close into the palm of my hand
We stood at the alter, the gypsy swore our future was right
But come the wee wee hours maybe baby the gypsy lied
So when you look at me, you better look hard and look twice
Is that me baby or just a brilliant disguise
Tonight our bed is cold, I'm lost in the darkness of our love
God have mercy on the man who doubts what he's sure of
/ Intro / G Gsus2 Gsus4 G D - Intro /
