Tombigbee

by Tori Amos

Tori Amos (born Myra Ellen Amos; August 22, 1963) is an American pianist, singer-songwriter and composer. She is a classically trained musician and possesses a mezzo-soprano vocal range. Amos originally served as the lead singer of 1980s synthpop group Y Kant Tori Read, and as a solo artist was at the forefront of a number of female singer-songwriters in the early 1990s. She was also noteworthy early in her solo career as one of the few alternative rock performers to use a piano as her primary instrument. Some of her charting singles include "Crucify", "Silent All These Years", "God", "Cornflake Girl", "Caught a Lite Sneeze", "Professional Widow", "Spark", "1000 Oceans", and "A Sorta Fairytale", her most commercially successful single in the U.S. to date.




To you it's another day
To me it's a grim reaping
Just another shooting star
Strung out on your wire

Prick my finger
On his virgin silver
He told me raw ginger
Carmalize me

Tombigbee Tombigbee
Help me hang these bones
Gotta hang these bones out to dry
He loves me
He loved me
Ravishingly low
Gotta hang these bones out to dry

Got a blackberry stain
And they're not even in season
If you're not yet a woman
You got no business playing this

chorus

So you get done
Then you get some
Sure enough it won't hold you for long
Then you say ride
This is all mine
But hasn't your donor card expired?

From Blueridge to Cattail
On the prairie
From fly over country back to Mississippi
I said, "go , man you go"

But you raise me twenty
I'm raising you five-
hundred treaties signed by your fathers' lies
Go, man, you go
'Cuz I'm trailing her tears
The ones you won't hold
You roll me a carpet
Roll me a carpet, boy
Roll me a carpet
From here to Oklahoma

chorus
