Stevie Nicks - 24 Karat Gold Songs from the Vault

Watch Chain

Lovely soft faded jeans
A very soft shirt in a light blue
Perfect dreams and a watch chain
Becomes you
You’re just a watch chain
And it becomes you
A watch chain
A watch chain
Watch devil
Keeper of the time

Lovely soft tired face
Touching fingers through the kitchen lace
I think that I should hold your hand
I’m hurting darling, do you understand
Well, I’m hurting, darling
Do you understand
Keeper of the time
Watch devil

Be aware of the danger
As you cross the great water
Be careful of strangers
Who are new to your eyes
Beware of the people
Who look not straight at you
The keeper of the time is blind
The keeper of the time is blind
Well, the keeper of the time is blind
Watch devil
Keeper of the time
Keeper of the time

About the Song

“Watch Chain” is a track from 24 Karat Gold — Songs from the Vault. The song dates back to a mid-1970s demo, also known as “Watch Devil.” The song is included on a bootleg called Cathouse Blues, a collection of mostly unreleased songs written in the early to mid-1970s. Some of these songs were intended for the second Buckingham Nicks album, which the duo had been working on just prior to joining Fleetwood Mac in 1974. “Watch Chain” also appears on the vinyl Fleetwood Mac bootleg Almanac.
