Sept 15 1983

-tabbed by mike/howardfinkel483

D                           Bm Bm
Long dinner with some friends
D                         Bm Bm
Way out way out in Portmore
D                    Bm Bm
Servants of the pharaoh
G                    A
Slip in through an open door
          D   Bm Bm
All business
D                        Bm
Bearing knives and zip-guns
D                    Bm        
So get on the floor now 
G               A
Every last one, Every last one

          G    A              D   D-A-Bm
The heat drifts across the land
        G           A
If I forget you Israel
           D       D-A-Bm        
Let me forget my right hand

And on the floor Michael James Williams
Feels his fingers start to freeze
And the whole scene’s like a movie
Paramedics on their knees

Try, try your whole life
To be righteous and be good
Wind up on your own floor
Choking on blood

The heat drifts across the land
If I forget you Israel
Let me forget my right hand

And the house still smells like onions
When the ambulance arrives
Gabriel in postal blue
Loads up the car and drives

To Spanish town
About three miles away
Where will the wicked run to
On that last day, on that last day?

The heat drifts across the land
If I forget you Israel
Let me forget my right hand
