Two Towns Away

The Mississippi mumbles by
Neath these Mississippi skies
These red brick blues
Tumble and roll
And I’ve got to go

This midnight train limps along
And hums it’s crippled song
You may be five hundred
miles away
And I
I’ve got to go away
In the blink of an eye
I’ll be two towns away
And all the while I dream
And all the while I dream
And all the while I dream
I dream of you
I dream of you
I dream of you…

I’m a deaf man with much to say
I’m a thief on christmas day
I’m anxious
As a king on the brink of war

And I…I’ve got to go away
In the blink of an eye
I’ll be two towns away
And all the while I dream
And all the while I dream
And all the while I dream
I dream of you
I dream of you
I dream of you…

The Devil Is In Love

Well Zeus sold his mountain
And moved to the sea
All the local folks agreed
Buddha drives a taxi
And he lives on third and vine but
The Devil is in love

Jesus is an actor
But he’s always out of work
He dines for free at a cross town church
Aphrodite sells flowers
While Apollo plays the drums but
The Devil is in love

He’s in love

And everybody they cry they cry
They cry cry they cry
They cry they cry
They cry they cry
And they cry

Pan plays his pipes
Every day and on the streets
Thor is a waiter in New Orleans
Muhammad got married
To a girl from Italy but
The devil is in love

He’s in love

And everybody they cry they cry
They cry they cry
They cry they cry
They cry they cry
And they cry

Well I’m
lonely as a satellite
Toiling round in space
I’m catching bullets
In my teeth but
The devil is in love

He’s in love

And everybody they cry they cry
They cry they cry
They cry they cry
They cry they cry
And they cry

Jumping Out Of One Story Buildings

Time is your friend
So get down from that ledge
Thirty stories is a long way to go now
You think you will fly
But you’ll really die
Actually you’ll fly but only for seconds flat

But if your going to jump
Jump out of one story buildings
If your going to jump
Jump out of one story buildings

If you desire love
But you’ve got a cold bed
Just do your thing and love will become your nuisance
If time knocks on your door
You could lock the door
Or you could ask him in for a cup of coffee

But if your going to jump
Jump out of one story buildings
If your going to jump
Jump out of one story buildings

Way back
Neath skeletons and ghosts you’ll go
Way back
Where the snow has no tracks
way back
Neath memories of paramours
Way back
Is where you’ll begin

So just take a breath
And an elevator
Down down down to the ground go walking
Through the streets below
Look around and see
You’ll forget all about skyscrapers

But if your going to jump
Jump out of one story buildings
If your going to jump
Jump out of one story buildings

Letters From Jupiter

Since you’ve been away
Things aren’t the same
There have been
Pretty tough times here
Not sure who to blame
What I really want to know
Are you ever coming back
We miss you
My how time has flown
Things are not the same
Since you’ve been away

Are you kicking your feet up
In some distant galaxy
Are you smoking cigars
And drinking martinis too
Do you ever stop and think
About all of us down here
I really have to say I miss you

Since you’ve been away
Things aren’t the same
You’ve found notoriety
You’ve found your fame
People give and give to you
But you knock em down again
We miss you
My how time has flown
Things are not the same
Since you’ve been away

Are you kicking your feet up
In some distant galaxy
Are you smoking cigars
And drinking martinis too
Do you ever stop and think
About all of us down here
I really have to say I miss you

Since you’ve been away
Things aren’t the same
There have been
Pretty tough times here
Not sure who to blame
What I really want to know
Are you ever coming back
We miss you
My how time has flown
Things are not the same
Since you’ve been away

We miss you
My how time has flown
Things are not the same
Since you’ve been away

Silver Girl

Still as calm she stands
A statue at first glance
The crowd gathers round
They give her they’re money
She’s painted up all silver
And glistens like a knife
And I think I love the silver girl
And I think I love the silver girl

Pidgins find residence
On her bowler hat
Her coat it is stitched
From those of Vagabonds
When she strolls the streets
Even blind men stare
And I think I love the silver girl
And I think I love the silver girl

I’ll never know her name
Or meet her family
Or see her silver face
Without her silver paint
Still I know I’m left
With the memory
That I think I love the silver girl
And I think I love the silver girl

Prague

City of Prague
I lived all alone
Believing in what isn’t there
Then under Prague skies
I saw her standing
Holding a violin she made

Oh heart made of wood so lovely
I’ll never let you go oh no
With her hair black as coal
And her eyes they shone like ghosts
Oh heart made of wood
I’ll not let go

We wore our love
Between Wednesday and Sunday
I gave her my pocket watch
And I told her when days pass
To mail it back to me
When her love for me fades away

Oh heart made of wood so lovely
I’ll never let you go oh no
With her hair black as coal
And her eyes they shone like ghosts
Oh heart made of wood
I’ll not let go

She gave me her heart made of wood
That she carved
It was from the violin she made
Then one day I went home
And just days before Christmas
I found my pocket watch in the mail

Oh heart made of wood so lovely
I’ll never let you go oh no
With her hair black as coal
And her eyes they shone like ghosts
Oh heart made of wood
I’ll not let go

With her hair black as coal
And her eyes they shone like ghosts
Oh heart made of wood
I’ll not let go

Come November

Summers fled
In comes autumn
Gray skies lurk
Put the shame on the sun
Put the shame on the sun

Crows they fly
And circle above
Summers fled
Like your vanishing love
Like your vanishing love

November
November
You know that it’s going to come
November
Come November
Come November
Come November

Your ragged tired
Circles neath your eyes
Summers fled
And you’ve no alibis
And you’ve no alibis

November
November
You know that it’s going to come
November
Come November
Come November
Come November

You’ll leave this place
You will go home
Where memory waits
Where your clothes will get sewn
Where your clothes will get sewn

November
November
You know that it’s going to come
November
Come November
Come November
Come November

I Could Be

Close my eyes then I realize
I could be anyone
Walking out in the sun
I could be an animal
I could be nothing at all

I could be anyone
Walking out in the sun
I could be anyone

Born to different skies
Born with different eyes
Or perhaps no eyes at all
I could be a barbers son
I could be a slave on the run

I could be anyone
Walking out in the sun
I could be
I could be
I could be anyone

I walk out into the rain
All these thoughts fill my brain
I could be anything a cabbage or a king
I could be the bell at the ball
I could be a fly on the wall

I could be anyone
Walking out in the sun
I could be
I could be
I could be anyone
Anyone
Anyone
I could be
I could be

Everybody Is In Love But You

The city lights are oh so beautiful
Your lost in the crowd
But that’s fine with you
Lover’s walking hand in hand in love
They take up the sidewalk
There’s no space for you

They are in love…

Everybody is in love but you
Everybody is in love but you
Everybody is in love but you
They are in love…

Just another glass of wine for you
You sip it up
Helps you to forget
All your friends say you are cynical
But they’re not alone
Seems they have someone

They are in love…

Everybody is in love but you
Everybody is in love but you
Everybody is in love but you
They are in love…

You go into a local restaurant
Your asked If you will be
Dinning alone tonight

Everybody is in love but you
Everybody is in love but you
Everybody is in love but you
They are in love…

They are in love…

They are in love…

I’ll Take The Road

I’m tossing out Winters tattered old rags
And I’m dressing in Springs new clothes
This town is a shipwreck sunken and dead
I’m a feather that’s made out of lead
I gave away everything that I own
My pockets hold my worlds worth
Where I wake up where my feet roam
That’s where I call home So…

I’ll take the road
I’ll take the road
Where I wake up
Where my feet roam
That’s where I call home

Some folks they own piles of toys
But really the toys own them
A house is a prison a jail to me
A gold cage without a key
Clicking my heals like a blind mans cane
But I’m quiet as I can be
Don’t ask if I’ve friends out there yet
I do but none that I’ve met so…

I’ll take the road
I’ll take the road
Where I wake up
Where my feet roam
That’s where I call home

I’m leaving this town and I’m leaving today
l really have to go
These threadbare shoes will carry me through
I got nothing I got nothing to lose
I’ve been dead for a long long time
Potters field has a plot with my name
So tonight I’ll fly from this town so dire
No more frying pan no more fire

I’ll take the road
I’ll take the road
Where I wake up
Where my feet roam
That’s where I call home

Where I wake up
Where my feet roam
That’s where I call home
