N.C.                 G
A pure heart in me O Lord,
                     C
A pure heart in me O Lord,
              C/B  Am                     Am/G  C/E        
How the world went round, and I chased it round,
       G/F#  G/E     D5
It was you I found...

I walk the same road every day,
Don't need the bus, don't need the car, don't need the train,
From the Devil's Plain, via the Holy Lane,
I walk in fire I walk in rain...


(G/B)                  C        D
It isn't quite as I'd imagined,
                          Em         G/B
and everything still feels the same,
                   Am                    (C/B)    C
O the honey may be sweet, all my longing days are fleet,
          D               G/B
Still I'm lonely just the same.


(Verse chords for instrumental break)


N.C.                          G
I gathered barley, pruned the vines,
                              C       C/B Am
I pressed the seed around the clover,
                C/B      C
Let my neighbor drink in peace
        C    C/B      Am
While I set about the fleece,
        D              G      G/F# Em
While I tended on your lease, O    please...


(Em)                   C         D
It isn't quite as I'd imagined,
                          Em         G/B
and everything still feels the same,
                   Am                    (C/B)    C
O the honey may be sweet, all my longing days are fleet,
          D               G    G/F#   Em
Still I'm lonely just the same.

It isn't quite as I'd imagined,
and nobody knows my name,
Am I the 'long forgotten dead'? Put a tablet o'er my head
And remember me no more.
(Em)                     Am                  (C/B)   C
Am I the 'long forgotten dead'? Put a tablet o'er my head
      D            G
And remember me no more.

(P.S. The chords above are a mix of what's implied by the guitar, bass and the vocals. Like
many Augie March songs, this features a chord-over-chord effect, so I've arranged these
chords to sound true to the song both playing solo or in a group.)
