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
A song so sweet and sad
About a man
Whose love I never had
But there is a train
Bound for Gilliad
And mercy will follow me, I'm told

Mercy will you follow me
Mercy will you follow me
To my final breath, the 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 one day own
And mercy will follow me, I'm told

Mercy will you follow me
Mercy will you follow me
Till my final breath, the last I take
Mercy will you follow me
Mercy will you follow me
Till the chains of this old world I finally break, oh
Till the chains of this old world I finally break, oh
Till the chains of this old world I finally break
