Gene Clark - The Virgin Songtext

She went off to the city
E B
To find what she was looking for
B C#m
To identify, to really try
E B
To find herself some hope
B C#m
With the summer sun for laughing
E
And the winter rain did pour
B C#m
She was lovelier from learning
E B
And from living, loving more
B C#m
From her dancing love and young soul
E B
And the gypsies in her dream
B C#m
To the pulse of stark acceptance
E B
When the winds began to freeze
C#m
With no curfews left to hold her
C#m E
And no walls to shield her pain
B C#m
Finding out that facts were older
E B
And that life forms are insane.
B C#m
The presence of protection seemed
E B
To fade, as did her doubt
C#m
That she now was no exception
E B
Nor was the love who pushed her out

Though the streets cried out,
C#m
Go, homesick
C#m E
Virtues strength of mind would ring
B C#m
In the maladies of meaning
E B
The sad song she learned to sing.
B C#m
Now, her teachers and philosophers
E B
And the poet's silver throat
C#m E B
Are the vessels which on wisdom's karmic ocean she will float.
C#m
Was this her revolution,
E
Just a child in love's crusade,
B C#m
With the question in her innocence
E B
Through the lies her eyes betrayed?
