Original video
I got a feeling of unrighteousness
Bitter cold and 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 Gilliad
And 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 one day own
And mercy will follow me I'm told

Mercy will you follow me
Mercy will you follow me
Until the final breath at last I take
Mercy will you follow me
Mercy will you follow me
Till the chain of this old world I finally break
Till the chain of this old world I finally break
Oh, till the chain of this old world I finally break

Woah, yeah
