The Wanderer

Song Author U2 Lyrics by: U2 Performer: Johnny Cash Submitted by: valgardsson
[G]I went out walking through street paved with gold
[C]Lifted some stones, saw the skin and bones
of a [G]city without a soul
[G]I went out walking under an atomic sky,
where the [C]ground won't turn and the rain it burns
like the [G]tears when I said goodbye

[Em]Yeah, I went with [C]nothing
[G]Nothing but the thought of [D]you  
I went [Em]wandering [C]    [D]    [G]    

[G]I went drifting through the capitals of tin
Where [C]men can't walk, or freely talk
And [G]sons turn their fathers in
I [G]stopped outside a church house, where the citizens like to sit
They [C]say they want the kingdom
But they [G]don't want God in it
[G]I went out riding, down that old eight lane
[C]I passed by a thousand signs
[G]looking for my own name

[Em]I went with [C]nothing
but the [G]thought
You'd be there [D]too, looking for [Em]you    [C]    [D]    [G]    

[C]I went out there in
[G]Search of experience,
to [Em]taste and to touch [C]and to feel as much
[G]as a man can [D]before he repents [Em]    [C]    [D]    [G]    

[G]I went out searching Looking for one good man
A [C]spirit who would not bend or break
Who would [G]sit at his father's right hand
[G]I went out walking with a bible and a gun
The [C]word of God lay heavy on my heart
I was [G]sure I was the one
Now [G]Jesus, don't you wait up, Jesus I'll be home soon
Yeah, [C]I went out for the papers
[G]Told her I'd be back by noon

[Em]Yeah, I left with [C]nothing
But the [G]thought you would be there [D]too  
Looking for [Em]you    [C]    [D]    [G]    

[Em]Yeah, I left with [C]nothing
[G]Nothing but of thought of [D]you  
I went [Em]wanderring [C]    [D]    [G]    

I went out walking through street paved with gold
Lifted some stones, saw the skin and bones
of a city without a soul
I went out walking under an atomic sky,
where the ground won't turn and the rain it burns
like the tears when I said goodbye

Yeah, I went with nothing
Nothing but the thought of you
I went wandering

I went drifting through the capitals of tin
Where men can't walk, or freely talk
And sons turn their fathers in
I stopped outside a church house, where the citizens like to sit
They say they want the kingdom
But they don't want God in it
I went out riding, down that old eight lane
I passed by a thousand signs
looking for my own name

I went with nothing
but the thought
You'd be there too, looking for you

I went out there in
Search of experience,
to taste and to touch and to feel as much
as a man can before he repents

I went out searching Looking for one good man
A spirit who would not bend or break
Who would sit at his father's right hand
I went out walking with a bible and a gun
The word of God lay heavy on my heart
I was sure I was the one
Now Jesus, don't you wait up, Jesus I'll be home soon
Yeah, I went out for the papers
Told her I'd be back by noon

Yeah, I left with nothing
But the thought you would be there too
Looking for you

Yeah, I left with nothing
Nothing but of thought of you
I went wanderring
