Get the picks and the hammers off the ropes in the rafters We're going to the coast on the slow boat molasses Where ringwater tides and the blackfish brew The armadillo crying in the alligator stew Six months later we were back in the strap Eyes to the shadow of a baseball cap King's Arcade is the place to rest Where rusty recollection dare not molest We don't need no bangsnap illusions We don't want no vague substitutions All we need is this brandywine solution And the trickledown rhythm of a barrelhouse band Put some shine in your shelter, spread some light on the water And trick down the river with the goldminer's daughter The goldberry bushelpicker shivers in the field The hangman hides behind the shotgun shield Down in the bushes where the kingsnakes coil We hid the keg of whiskey and the barrel of oil King's Arcade is the place to go If you know somebody or you just don't know
