Down where the sad widows gather[G#/C]

If I were to stay here there’d be
no one to save me /

Switch to record, I get the picture
But I will never under- stand

In the Mozambique sun under the gun
I hear the drums,

There is a curse upon this land
Hear the drums, know it’s urgent
Hear sur- vival in his hands
Hit re- cord get the picture,
I will never under- stand

Makes me tired and ready for sleep
So tell me about all the places you go
All the lies that you swallow The people you keep
Viva the monastery, That’s where I wanna be
wrestle my soul!
