mercy lyrics – counting crows

mercy
(originally by tender mercies)

i got a feeling
of unrighteousness
bitter cold
hollow bitterness
down the road
i walk with loneliness
mercy will follow me i’m told

my sister sang
songs so sweet and sad
bout a man
who’s love i never had
there’s a train
bound for gillian?
mercy will follow me i’m told
mercy will you follow me
mercy will you follow me
till my final breath at last i take
mercy will you follow me
mercy will you follow me
till the chains of this old world i finally break

under this skin
there lies a heart of stone
it’s growing old
so very far, from home
but a heart of gold
i may someday own?
and mercy will follow me, i’m told
mercy will you follow me
mercy will you follow me
to my final breath at last i take
mercy will you follow me
mercy will you follow me
till the chains of this old world i finally break
till the chains of this old world i finally break
till the chains of this old world i finally break
