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?

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

Oh, Josephine Lyrics

Diamonds hold the mirrors
And the spoon it holds the stars
It's been a long time baby
Since I seen the sun rise like this
Make a wish and call it "maybe"
And give me one more kiss
Ooh, I like it like this, I like it like this

Oh Josephine
You're dressed in black
Oh Josephine
Your eyes are blue
And I know now
That there's no turning back
Oh Josephine
What will we do

Still dreaming through the comedown
Still fillin' every page
C'mon and touch me baby
Before I turn to rust

You know there ain't no other
It's not a matter of trust
Just sometimes love ain't enough
Love ain't enough

Oh Josephine
You're dressed in black
Oh Josephine
Your eyes are blue
And I know now
That there's no turning back
Oh Josephine
What will we do

For a while I was dealing in tears and powders
For a while I was strung out beyond my means
I lost at love while climbing down the ladder
Just looking for the song to set me free

No waiting for redemption
No leaving love behind
You gotta know where you wanna be
It gets cold outside

It's too late to play it safe
So let's let it all ride
Let's let it all ride
Let it all ride

Oh Josephine
You're dressed in black
Oh Josephine
Your eyes are blue
And I know now
That there's no turning back
Oh Josephine
What will we do

Evergreen Lyrics

Let my song ease your lonely
Let my words take your hand
Let me kiss your rose petals
Forge you a golden band

Let me point out the birds
That fly only for you
And I will do anything
That you want me to

Evergreen, evergreen
Prettiest thing I've ever seen
Come and steal away with me
By the moonlight

Evergreen, evergreen
Prettiest thing I've ever seen
Come and steal away with me
By the moonlight
Evergreen, evergreen
Prettiest thing I've ever seen
Come and steal away with me
By the moonlight

Come and play in my garden
Come and dance in my rain
Come make love in the sunshine
Come, let's share our pain

Come fly through this darkness
To be right by my side
And let's walk right through the door
Just to see what's inside

Evergreen, evergreen
Prettiest thing I've ever seen
Come and steal away with me
By the moonlight
Evergreen, evergreen
Prettiest thing I've ever seen
Come and steal away with me
By the moonlight

Show me the way
With the words that you say
With the light of love
In the light of your love

Evergreen, evergreen
Prettiest thing I've ever seen
Come and steal away with me
By the moonlight
Evergreen, evergreen
Prettiest thing I've ever seen
Come and steal away with me
By the moonlight

Wee Who See the Deep Lyrics

Put forever in your mind
Let go of space and time
Yeah, said it is wee who see the deep
It is wee that the lesson teach

Do you even know this place?
Nowhere is over
To find our way back to grace
Nowhere is nothing at all

Well I have come from the hurricane
A messenger that the tempest brings
Eyes full of sun, hands full of seed
At one with the night just to help me see

Do you even know this place?
Nowhere is over
To find our way back to grace
Nowhere is nothing at all

Nowhere is nothing at all
Nowhere is nothing at all
Nowhere is nothing at all
Nowhere is nothing at all

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

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

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

God's Got It Lyrics

If you need it, God's got it
God's got everything you need
If you need it, God's got it
God's got everything you need
If you need it, God's got it
God's got everything you need
He's got everything a poor boy needs

Well, if it's money, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
Well, if it's money, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
Well, if it's money, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
He's got everything a poor boy needs

Well, if it's a friend, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
Well, if it's a friend, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
Well, if it's a friend, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
He's got everything a poor boy needs

There's Gold in Them Hills Lyrics

On the first day of winter
I was set to leave
With the lost art of true love in my eye
Through wild frontier
With outlaws and thieves
To find me a mountain in the sky

There's gold in them hills
I heard the man cry
There's gold in them hills
For the takin'
It's a one-way ticket
Down a river of lies
There's gold in them hills
If you make it

On the last day of spring
I first saw the sea
A poor boy with good luck on my side
Ready for riches
I rolled up my sleeve
And took my first step
Down in he mine

There's gold in them hills
I heard the man cry
There's gold in them hills
For the takin'
It's a one-way ticket
Down a river of lies
There's gold in them hills
If you make it

Hid my wallet
Same old pocket
Sixteen dollars
Brand new shoes
Empty bottle
Satin garters
What's a country boy to do?

Tell dear mother that I miss her
But things are different now
There's nothing I can do
Your dark-haired son is now long gone
Remember me
When you stare at the moon

Broken my heart
For diamonds and gold
Through scandal, through madness
Through cold
All I have left is this grey in my beard
This mountain and the stories that I've told

There's gold in them hills
I heard the man cry
There's gold in them hills
For the takin'
It's a one-way ticket
Down a river of lies
There's gold in them hills
If you make it

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

Poor Elijah – Tribute to Johnson Lyrics

Poor Elijah, living on the bayou way
Poor Elijah, he had to take over raising fourteen kids
When his daddy got caught stealing chickens from a neighbor one day
Work on Elijah, work on

Poor Elijah, born the son of a slave
Poor Elijah, he was damn near blind when he died last week
From working in the sun for the man like a dog all day
Work on Elijah, work on

Poor Elijah
Poor Elijah
Poor Elijah
Poor Elijah

Singing a song
A song about a man
Nobody hardly knows him
Nobody hardly knows him
Said nobody hardly knows him
Nobody knows him

- Tribute To Johnson -
Good morning Robert Johnson son
You built your life before your song was sung
People agree and now you're number one.
So sad to think we had to wait so long

It keeps on getting better every day
And maybe someday soon, people will say
Ain't nobody here but good people
Ain't nobody here but good people
Ain't nobody here but good people

No, nobody here
No, nobody here
No, nobody here
No, nobody here

Darling of the Underground Press Lyrics

So the story goes that you
Sold your soul for delusions of beauty and courage
While young at heart is a nice place to start
Can the truth hold all this baggage

So tell all your foes
Because my friends know
That your white flag ain't no sign for surrender
And those books that you've read have gone straight to your head
And made you the great pretender

I've heard that it's good to think before you speak
Though I've heard that it's good to bathe once a week

So tell me how it feels it if even seems real to be the darling of the underground press
Baby please can I see some ID
I don't believe you come from a royal family

I've heard that it's good to think before you speak
Though I've heard that it's good to bathe yourself once a week
Oh I've heard that it's good to look before you cross
No one, no one will ever find you if you don't get yourself lost

Bad Luck Blue Eyes Goodbye Lyrics

With my winter time
My idols and stage fright
In another night
Where the lights are loud and bright

One dream from waking up saved
Too shy to hold in the rage
I know no luxury
Of knowing what your eyes read
I know one million ways
To always pick the wrong thing to say

A love that you never gave
Always a time zone away
It's not out of spite
I know what's right

Bad Luck Blue Eyes Goodbye

Sometimes a memory
Only sees what it wants to believe
And what's filled in between
Are days and nights that don't mean a thing
Such a simple suicide
A second chance never tried

And you don't understand
I need a helping hand

So you think that you've seen it all
Is that a fact?
So out your mouth a dictionary
Spouts about this and that
You got your do's, your don'ts
Because and why
I don't trust no one who don't
Take their own advice

Bad Luck Blue Eyes Goodbye

Don't Know Why Lyrics

You say you want everything good for me
But I know so well, I can tell when you're lying
Making believe you're looking up to me
And I'm just sitting here, crying

And I don't know why
I don't know why
I don't know why I don't care

You'll go on back to him, he'll take you in
I know he's gonna love you, but I still want you back again
'Cause baby you're part of me, it's deep inside of you
When he's done all he can, you'll come running to your other man, oh yeah

And I don't know why
I don't know why
I don't know why I don't care

I know you won't soon forget last night
Your precious love was all over me, but it's all right
Go on and try again but you know nothing's gonna change
That's the way it's gonna be, oh yeah

And I don't know why
I don't know why
I don't know why I don't care

Torn and Frayed Lyrics

Hey let him follow you down,
Way underground wind and he's bound.
Bound to follow you down,
Just a dead beat right off the street.
Bound to follow you down.
Well the ballrooms and smelly bordellos
And dressing rooms filled with parasites.
On stage the band has got problems,
They're a bag of nerves on first nights.
He ain't tied down to no home town,
Yeah, and he thought he was wreckless.
You think he's bad, he thinks you're mad,
Yeah, and the guitar player gets restless.

And his coat is torn and frayed,
It's seen much better days.
Just as long as the guitar plays
Let it steal your heart away,
Let it steal your heart away.

Joe's got a cough, sounds kinda rough,
Yeah, and the codeine to fix it.
Doctor prescribes, drug store supplies,
Who's gonna help him to kick it

Well his coat is torn and frayed,
It`s seen much better days.
Just as long as the guitar plays
Let it steal your heart away,
Let it steal your heart away.

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
