Dangerous Spirits Lyrics

Dangerous spirits are at large in the hills
[D]
cold dark wings is in the air
[D] [G]
some have been lost to the shadows within the light
[D] [A] [D]
some are beyond the reach of prayer

[D]
I myself have stood with the ravens in the rain
[D]
a darkness in my heart and a younger face
[D] [G]
and with a stolen chestnut mare and a blue navy colt
[D] [A] [D]
I was above the law outside the bounds of grace

[D]
With a pistol in my hand and no kindness in my eyes
[D]
I wore these as a badge high in fashion
[D] [G]
but I had to walk away from the powder and the flame
[D] [A] [D]
the reason was not fear it was compassion
[D]
I let my revolver fall from my hands
[D]
and put on the coat of a pilgrim
[D] [G]
now there is more to me than between my hat and boots
[D] [A] [D]
and the treasures I own no one can steal them

Solo

[D]
Now I stand in the dirt with the dust on my boots
[D]
the road that I choose is less travelled
[D] [G]
the flag that I follow is full of holes and torn
[D] [A] [D]
and its sacred threads can never be unraveled

[D]
And I have met a woman who is in my breath and bones
[D]
she's at ease in either calico or leather
[D] [G]
she prays to a god who does not hurt or hate
[D] [A] [D]
she wears earrings of crystals and feathers

Solo

[D]
Since I left my revolver in the dirt
[D]
I have known peace since that hour
[D] [G]
and now I see my life passing before my eyes
[D] [A] [D]
as a petal falling from a flower

[D]
Ah but there are dangerous spirits are at large in the hills
[D]
cold dark wings is in the air
[D] [G]
some have been lost to the shadows within the light
[D] [A] [D]
some are beyond the reach of prayer
