Movin' On Down The Line Lyrics

It's all right, sisters
It's all right, brother

The wheel within the wheel
The water below the well
Keep the curtains drawn
Leave the record on
And be careful what you say
Bring that bottle near
Make the real unreal
And let's go out and play

It's all right, sisters
It's all right, brothers
We all get down sometimes

Starting to show me
Starting to know me
Starting to feel the shine
Starting to let go
Now that we know
It's time to move it on down the line

The x that marks the hex
That moves from next to next
Keep your head on tight
To make it through the night
You've got to make a friend along the way
So cover up your tracks
And avoid attacks
And live to love another day

Cause it's all right, sisters
It's all right, brothers
We all get down sometimes

Starting to show me
Starting to know me
Starting to feel the shine
Starting to let go
Now that we know
It's time to move it on down the line

It's all right, sisters
It's all right, brothers
We all get down sometimes

Starting to show me
Starting to know me
Starting to feel the shine
Starting to let go
Now that we know
It's time to move it on down the line

Gone Lyrics

Save me, save me baby
From this season's dead air
Take, take, take me baby
Blind naked and scared
So scared
Want you to burn me, burn me baby
Burn me and cover your eyes with my ashes
Why don't you pray for me baby
Sit back and watch my divine spark flash

Gone
Good riddance I'm gone
Gone in a wasted way
Wasted my way I'm gone

Pull, push and pull on me baby
With your fingernails full of fur
I want you to stab me
Do it, do it, 'cause you know it don't hurt

Gone
Good riddance I'm gone
Gone in a wasted way
Wasted my way I'm gone

Jinx me, jinx me baby
Beautiful like a fool
C'mon and remove me
Dilated and burned

Gone
Good riddance I'm gone
Gone in a wasted way
Wasted my way I'm gone

Twice as Hard Lyrics

Clean as a whistle
Smellin' like a rose
She got no dirty little fingers
Bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

Twice as Hard
As it was the first time
I said goodbye

And no one ever wanna' know
Love ain't funny
A crime in the wink of an eye

Your sister always singing
She play the step child
A broken little memory
Her heart was never kind
Tell me I'm blind

Yeah, bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

(Repeat Chorus 5 times)

Another Roadside Tragedy Lyrics

Kiss me goodnight, shake me awake.
The closer I get to you the more I can't wait.
Roll on down hill, smell my brakes
No time for coffee, just splash water on my face, oh yeah

Kick my tires, count out of state plates
Roll down my window, don't the wind feel great?
Sunrise my friend, sunset again
This song I keep humming while my four wheels' spinning

Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy
Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy

Wind it down and back it up
I might get there sooner than I thought
No warranty on the wear and tear
It don't matter, just as long as I get there

Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy
Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy
Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy
Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy

Walk Believer Walk Lyrics

Go down go down you stranger
There's something waiting for you
Angels dogs and honey
Devils and harpoons

You want your mainline Jesus
You want your diamond god
You want to pull the trigger
And kill the autumn hog

Walk believer walk
Straight into the sun
Walk believer walk
Your work is never done

Pray on pray on my brother
Now's the time for truth
Black shadow comes a creepin'
To take the soul right out of you

Can you feel the demons pulling
Can you hear the devil sing
Can you taste the poison in your mouth
Feel the weight of his chains

Walk believer walk
Straight into the sun
Walk believer walk
Your work is never done

Whoa Mule Lyrics

Whoa mule, whoa mule
We're dirty but we're dreaming
Whoa mule, whoa mule
We'll both get there someday

All you ramblers
You silk tongued gamblers
Listen to my tale
Won't take long
To sing you my song
Full of trouble and despair

So fare thee well
You troubadours
Whose pockets have no lining
I could tell you that
All pastures stay green
But you know that I'd be lying

Whoa mule, whoa mule
We're dirty but we're dreaming
Whoa mule, whoa mule
We'll both get there someday

My own true love
Is a raven-haired girl
Who lives way back down the hollow
I take her by
Her lily-white hand
And into the woods we wander

Her daddy was
A river man
As mad as a hatter
Her mama, she's
As soft as snow
But that don't really matter

Whoa mule, whoa mule
We're dirty but we're dreaming
Whoa mule, whoa mule
We'll both get there someday

Sometimes a road
Is rocky and hard
Full of dangers unrelenting
Just take great care
To follow your star
Let the good times come a'plenty

Whoa mule, whoa mule
We're dirty but we're dreaming
Whoa mule, whoa mule
We'll both get there someday

Polly Lyrics

If the wild bird could speak
She'd tell of places you had been
She's been in my dreams
And she knows all the ways of the wind

Polly, come home again
Spread your wings to the wind
I felt much of the pain
As it begins

Dreams can cover much time
Still they leave blind
The will to begin
I searched for you there
And now look for you from within

Polly, come home again
Spread your wings to the wind
I felt much of the pain
As it begins v

Here Comes Daylight Lyrics

A trial, a risk, a task
Famine, feast, or fast
Love's the only thing that lasts
Love is lonely and forever

Break your back
Crack your bones
Bend your mind
But don't let go
The only truth I really know
Is no way is easy

So bye bye sweet lie
So long dark sky
You've had your time
Here comes daylight

In the forest, in the field
In the dream and in the real
In the fold and in the fleece
In the evermore

Now I know who you really are
Now I know who I'm really not
So often into the mist I go
Not knowing where I'll ever stop

So bye bye sweet lie
So long dark sky
You've had your time
Here comes daylight

So bye bye sweet lie
So long dark sky
You've had your time
Here comes daylight

Girl From The North Country Lyrics

Well, if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

Well, if you go when the snowflakes storm,
When the rivers freeze and summer ends,
Please see if she's wearing a coat so warm,
To keep her from the howlin' winds.

Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
If it rolls and flows all down her breast.
Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
That's the way I remember her best.

I'm a-wonderin' if she remembers me at all.
Many times I've often prayed
In the darkness of my night,
In the brightness of my day.

So if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

Locust Street Lyrics

Dry bread on the table
Burn the milk
Salt the paper

And it's easy pickins
On locust street
There's no place to hide
And you can't find love on locust street
But you can hear the sunrise crying
Can't you hear the sunrise crying?
A song for you alone

Sad eyes
Weeping willow
Black cat blues
Blacked out window

And it's easy pickins
On locust street
There's no place to hide
And you can't find love on locust street
But you can hear the sunrise crying
Can't you hear the sunrise crying?
A song for you alone

Just a glimpse of what love can be
Once a dream that I owned
One of many lonely, longing souls
At least I'm not alone
Well at least I'm not alone

Ripe off the vine
Now lay rotten
Like a dead end street
Forever forgotten

And it's easy pickins
On locust street
There's no place to hide
And you can't find love on locust street
But you can hear the sunrise crying
Can't you hear the sunrise crying?
A song for you alone

Downtown Money WasterDowntown Money Waster Lyrics

To my low down downtown
Money waster
Your only saving grace
Is that i like to taste ya
But your flower is spoiled
Too easy to make ya
You got a .38 and your book of revelations
I got a .44 and a load of temptation

I am a rounder, like to round around
Two for one at the store on the corner
Little girl like to drink and sniffin' powders
Like the bars that stay open after hours
Like the boys that go 24-7
Too many late nights and you don't go to heaven

Take Off From The Future Lyrics

Thorn In My Pride Lyrics

Wake me when the day breaks
Show me how the sun shines
Tell me about your heartaches
Who could be so unkind?
Do you dream to touch me?
And smile down deep inside
Or could you just kill me?
It's hard to make up your mind, sometimes.

My angels, my devils, my thorn in my pride.
Are you wanting inspiration
You spill your secrets on me
Then you tell me with a whisper
Of things that will never be.
Do you hear me breating?
Does it make you want to scream?
Did you ever like a bad dream?
Sometimes life is obscene.

My angels, my devils, my thorn in my pride.
Lover cover me with your sleep
Let your love light shine
Lover cover me with a good dream
Let your love light shine

Goodbye Daughters of the Revolution Lyrics

Caught a rusty engine out of sawdust town
Made a deal with the man who shook 'em all down
So put a little grease on my axle now
I've been from Antioch to Alcatraz
I can roll you one from an empty bag
So let's take it easy to avoid any snags

CHORUS:

Goodbye daughters of the revolution
Open your eyes and see the solution
Hallelujah come join the jubilee
So let's keep on runnin'
Through the gates of the city
To give up now would be such a pity
And don't you want to see the ship
Go down with me

I'll come to you hungry I'll come to you sore
I'll come round midnight to your back door
I'll drag my tail across your floor
Gonna run you ragged til you act your age
Gonna circle the wagons gonna storm your stage
If we all plead guilty will the charges be the same

Chorus

I've been restless, baby
I'm feeling wild
Caught up in a fever dream
Save me child
Save me child

Chorus

Said don't you wanna the ship go down with me?
Said don't you wanna the ship go down with me?
Said don't you wanna the ship go down?

Jealous Again Lyrics

Cheat the odds that made you
Brave to try to gamble at times
Well I feel like dirty laundry
Sending sickness on down the line
Tell you why

'Cause I'm jealous, jealous again
Thought it time I let you in
Yeah, I'm jealous, jealous again
Got no time, baby

Always drunk on Sunday
Try'n to feel like I'm at home
Smell the gasoline burning
Boys out feeling nervous and cold

(Repeat 1st Chorus)

Stop, understand me
I ain't afraid of losing face
Stop, understand me
I ain't afraid of ever losing faith in you
Never felt like smiling
Sugar wanna' kill me yet
Find me loose lipped and laughing
Singing songs ain't got no regrets
(Repeat 1st and 2nd Chrous)

Don't you think I want to
Don't you think I would
Don't you think I'd tell you baby
If I only could
Am I acting crazy
Am I just too proud
Am I just plain lazy
Am I, Am I, Am I, ever

Wounded Bird Lyrics

Off the tracks
Lost the rail
Trying to squeeze a little blood
Out a rusty nail
When your thirsty
Thirsty

Behind your eyes
You feel the burn
As your downhill ride takes a
Solemn turn for the lonely
Lonely

Now don't look back, my wounded bird
There's nothing for you here
Need no wings
Just set your mind to fly

It's like you spent a long time
In an empty bed
In an empty room
With an empty head
Full of nothing
Nothing

Now all you got left
Is the skin of your teeth
And the red in your eye
Six feet deep
To get ready

Now don't look back, my wounded bird
There's nothing for you here
Need no wings
Just set your mind to fly

The waiting is over
So let's roll in the clover
Time for a head full of stars
Let's pull back the curtain
Only one thing's for certain
Well, we don't have very long

Now don't look back, my wounded bird
There's nothing for you here
Need no wings
Just set your mind to fly

Set your mind to fly

Hey Grandma Lyrics

Hey Grandma, you're so young
Your old man's just a boy
Been a long time this time (pow-pow-pow)
Been a long time this time (pow-pow-pow)
Been a long time this time round, this time round
Everything is upside down, upside down
Sure lookin' good
You're lookin' so good
You're sure lookin' good

SF freak scene was on my mind
Fillmore Slim is just a-wasting time
Well I got high this time (pow-pow-pow)
Well I got high this time (pow-pow-pow)
Well I got high this time round, this time round
Everything is upside down, upside down
Cause your lookin' good
You're lookin' so good
You're sure lookin' good

Robitussin make me feel so fine
Robitussin and Elderberry wine
Hey Grandma
Hey Grandma
Hey Grandma
Hey Grandma
