Duvalier's Dream
K. Kristofferson
Album: Kristofferson


Am             C              G
Duvalier was a bitter man who cursed the morning
     Am               Em          Am
That brought a new betrayal every day
                        C               G
He shunned the world of mortals and the sounds of human tongues
    Am                     G                   E7
And blessed the night that chased their sight away
  Am                              C          Am
A disillusioned dreamer who would never love again
                    C                 E
Who tried a bit and found that it was rotten
   Am              C                G
Preferring perfect strangers to the company of friends
    Am               Em        Am     G
For strangers are so easily forgotten

Ah, it's hard to keep believing when you know you've been decieved
To face a lie and dare to try again
But there's nothing like a woman with a spell of make believe
To make a new believer of a man

Duvalier took the fickle turns of fortune in stride
Expecting next to nothing out of life
'Til fortune found the girl who found the flame he thought had died
Whose burning beauty cut him like a knife
She touched him thru the senses that his mind could not control
Then smiling, stepped aside and watched him fall
Betrayed by his own body and the hunger in his soul
Duvalier was a dreamer after all
