FFRW48 Let Me Tell Ya a Story

The deal was made in Denmark on a dark and stormy day
So he set out for Biafra to join the bloody fray
We got preachers dealing in politics and diamond mines
And their speech is growing increasingly unkind
I am a lineman for the county and I drive the main road
Searchin' in the sun for another overload
He was turned to steel In the great magnetic field
Where he traveled time for the future of mankind
Life is pain, Murder is fame, And if you're famous you might get acquitted
There's nowhere to run away Damn you, I hope you pay and finish the day-to-day
She lay on the bank, the wind light as a thief
And I kissed her goodbye, said, "All beauty must die"
And I lent down and planted a rose between her teeth
So I slept in the hobo jungles, Roamed a thousand miles of track,
Till I found myself in Mobile Alabama, At a club they call Big Jack's
When I was a child way back in the hills I laughed at the men who tended those stills
But that old mountain shine, it caught me somehow
I'm gonna clean up my earth and build a heaven off the ground
Not something distant on a cloud but something real to me...
