The Deeper In
By the time you were born there were four other siblings With your Mama awaiting your daddy in jail Your oldest brother was away at a home And You didn't meet him til you were nineteen years old Old enough to know better, old enough to know better But you took to his jaw line and long sandy hair How he made you feel like none of the others And the way he looked at you touched you deep down in there. So you jumped on his bike and rode into the sunset But the sequel it started with the next morning sun And the dew on the bike seat and you all a glow From the love he put in you and a life on the run. Now, the District Attorney said he might of forgiven You had lots of reasons to turn out this way But He'll throw you in jail for them four little babies You made and delivered along the way Last night you had a dream about a Lord so forgiving He might show compassion for a heathen he damned You awoke in a jail cell, alone and so lonely Seven years in Michigan
