It was my first reaction that I was on my own I had no plans to guide me seemed my baby bird had flown I travelled through the night just to see your face wound up in a graveyard miles from any place Surely it must be a cloud, or the smoke from some old fire I could see an apparition, from the grave stone rising higher Watch her as she rises watch her as she rises She had pitch black eyes, and a bottle of wine She had pitch black eyes, and a bottle of wine She had pitch black eyes, and a bottle of the reddest wine It was my old man’s funeral, put that hat back on your head For it was this thing that showed me, that my love was far from dead So I made a small bouquet, laid it on the grave stone On the fenceline I thought I saw a blue jay I looked twice but he had flown Watch him as he rises watch him as he rises She had pitch black eyes, and a bottle of wine She had pitch black eyes, and a bottle of wine She had pitch black eyes, and a bottle of the reddest wine

You’re crawling backwards, crawling backwards on your knees high as the birds that are singing in the trees You’re crawling backwards, crawling backwards on your knees towards peace, towards hopelessness towards everything you ever needed that you couldn’t get Oh oh-oh Someone tell me where to go Someone tell me how to row my boat ashore My mind is in chains and my soul is walking out the door walking out the door He said boy she sure does look like she needs a shot He said boy she sure does look like she needs a shot So Tommy went and he got the Vodka but he meant a shot in the head somebody get the doctor cause I think somebody’s dead She didn’t want to spend her life being a lonely psychopath She didn’t want to spend her life being a lonely psychopath That’s P-S-Y why me? That’s C-H-Oh no That’s P-A-T-H just the path that you chose You’re crawling backwards You’re crawling backwards on your knees high as the birds that are singing in the trees The words… Drop like seeds right out of your mouth and grow up to be trees that cast shadows of doubt and when they lose their leaves there’s nothing left for you to shout about so I take a rake and I rake the leaves into piles of wants and piles of needs and there’s a little kid inside of me that wants to jump right in to the dried up colors thoughts once bright now just get duller with the passage of time

Georgia Rain 04:07
I hear that train a comin I hear that train a goin sit right down at the table babe I know you’re holding more than you’re showing you got black aces up your sleeve you call me on the phone then leave you gave me keys to your cage now I’m like a pile of daisies sitting on the interstate bigger than a haystack burning in the Georgia rain One day I was just a little girl, I woke up in this other world I put red tulips on the grave of your trust I pick them and I put them in a vase they say it doesn’t but it does I get a buzz from lookin’ at your face you got me walking on moonshine listening to ragtime Out of my head, out of my mind I hear that train a comin, I hear that train a goin sitting on the edge of the beach, holding my head in the early morn I stay in your harbor, though my ships got full sails I stand on the edge of the bow all night just to hear your saxophone wail People ask me why I love the boy so I reply that I may exactly know it came to me slowly this metaphor never fails my life was a big empty building, babe and you were a molotov cocktail walking on moonshine listening to ragtime You stuck to me like a blood stain on a silk shirt tough as killing floor blues smooth as Mississippi John Hurt tougher than a pit bull walking in a junkyard barb wire wrapped around a Nascar I hear that train a comin I hear that train a goin sit right down at the table babe I know you’re holding more than you’re showing you got black aces up your sleeve you call me on the phone then leave you gave me keys to your cage now I’m like a pile of daisies sitting on the interstate bigger than a haystack burning in the Georgia rain
