i'm a rompin' dead boy on a long road 

what opened up my eyes to this 

i'm just trying to keep 'em closed 

hey feller what ya got in that sac 

is it somethin' fer me? 

a little knowin' is a dangerous thing boy 

 please take it from me 

'cause i'm gone for today boys 

gone - but never far away 

she won't come - an' i won't follow 

 shadows lick the day 

i entertained that thought so much 

it'll never go away 

get outta here you yellow bellied snake 

 slither your way through town 

if e'are see you again 

put you in the ground 

'cause i'm gone for today boys 

gone, but never far away 

i'll burn lovely 

 swoop on down an grab me round 

land on me i'll burn lovely 

 swoop on down - jus' take off that 

 singeing singing gown
