Last night they came while we were sleeping, Lord they did not make a sound and I took a bullet to the breast, saw my blood spill on the ground when the sun come I heard voices say this boy cannot be saved so they bowed their heads in prayer and they dug a shallow grave. Plus I travel to the farthest regions, where the earth cracks open and the water bleeds in. Like the waves when they break, or the earth as it shakes, the fate we create from our birth to the grave. There are other things to do. Where the water runs cold from the mountains. Chorus Freedom in falling away.
Up On Cripple Creek Lyrics by The Band
If nothing else I hope my roots stay strong. Wild, red roses tangle the grass where William, sweet William, his blood once ran. I loved him better each time he crashed. My birds eye view, over the planet, expanding. You damn, dirty apes this is all your fault.
Up on Cripple Creek - Love for Levon (Joe Walsh)
Danny - Clarkesville, Ga. Nearest sizable town 2 and a half hours. Well, at the bottom of a liquor bottle An evil, lurking devil dwells. Hey pretty baby, slay me down to the bone. The sky will swim in lightning fire and the trees will shake and scream.
We could lay this whole night together, Laugh until the sun comes up, Great another day. Late last night I had me a dream, I was out fishin' in a whiskey stream, Baited my hook with apple-jack, Threw out a drink, drug a gallon back. The rabble and cabal on both sides of town Had a ball when they drove old Dixie down. Yeah they're singing in a silent key. Good luck had just stung me, to the race track I did go She bet on one horse to win and I bet on another to show The odds were in my favor, I had 'em five to one When that nag to win came around the track, sure enough she had won.
