When the Weight Comes Down
by Black Stone Cherry



Lights out on 42nd street in New York City
The Ohio's runnin' backwards down in Louisville, Kentucky
There's a fire on the plains of Kansas City, Kansas
Somebody dropped the bomb
The Louisiana swamps are turnin' red
The Memphis train ain't ever gonna run again
There's a fog rollin' on to Boston, Massachusetts
Who's got the smokin' gun

So where to you wanna be
When all hell breaks loose
Where do you wanna go
When the weight comes down
Watch for foreign soldiers
They'll try to break your neck
And I just wanna break your heart

When the weight comes down
Better run for shelter
These times will break your mind
And I just wanna break your heart

There's too much blood down in the Texas oil
The Rocky Mountain Tops are the only place free
What ever happened to the Carolina beaches
I miss those Georgia peaches

So where to you wanna be
When all hell breaks loose
Where do you wanna go

When the weight comes down
Watch for foreign soldiers
They'll try to break your neck
And I just wanna break your heart

When the weight comes down
Better run for shelter
These times will break your mind
And I just wanna break your heart
