Counting Crows - Mercy Lyrics




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

Counting Crows Mercy Comments
  1. Robb Albrecht

    Woke up with this song in my head after listening to the Underwater Sunshine podcast. Since the song was already in my head I might as well learn it on my guitar. =) Great song!

  2. Supercurio

    This is a great version, but their B-Side version they put out back in 2002 I like even better. Something about that version always touched me.

  3. joe Regan

    excellent

  4. Ned Kline

    thats carm

  5. Ned Kline

    this guy can sing with more emotion than i have heard in a long time, check out carnalita buy adam, whow!!!

    Michael Simms

    Mercy I pray will follow all God's children.

  6. Neil Leisenheimer

    Too country for me.  I'm glad CC seems to be moving away from this sound in Somewhere Under Wonderland (at least from what I've heard so far).

  7. David Bilodeau

    The crows are almost back.... almost....

  8. Ally White

    They BOTH used to be on the radio ALL THE TIME.

    Thanks for bringing Tender Mercies out on the Road Show. For those unfamiliar...this is a Tender Mercies (actually a Kurt Stevenson...bass player w/Tender Mercies) song. Check them out. They feature Crows members Dan Vickrey and Jim Bogios, along with Patrick Winningham and Kurt Stevenson

  11. Hannah L

    Imagine DMB and Counting Crows together. I would have very happy ears :).

  12. Lewis Bunney

    Are they really underrated? They're pretty huge over here compared to other american bands that fall under the same genre.

  13. MusicMoviesGames
