Where will you go 
When this day is over 
A gambler's purse 
Lays on the road 
Straight to your door 
Snakes have gone crazy tonight 
Winding their way out of sight 

A laugh, a joke 
A sentiment wasted 
Seasons of strangers 
They've come and gone 
Doldrums are pounding, 
Cheapskates are clowning this town 
Who could disown themselves now 

Engineer, slow down this old train 
Cinders and chaff 
Laugh at the moon 
Night birds will cackle 
Rotting like apples on trees 
Sending their dead melodies... 
To me
