The sun comes up, and I try to get drunk,
And nothin' happens, baby, thank God
I'm lookin' out West, and I'm failin' in health
And I'm sailin' the breadth of the Lord

Old river flowin' in secrets
Winding and waning and deepened

You're just the Devil, and that's alright -
I got plenty of Devil in me
Oh, don't you settle for time, sweet time
When you're waitin' for you to be free

Plastered and peeled 'cross lavender fields
I'm breakin', yet toe up the line
Suckered and squealed, pleading for appeal,
I'm jailed and tossed in the mines


Grass of emerald, down the hillside
And our mansion, double-wide
And our mansion, double-wide

The sun comes up - I try to get drunk
I'm not into feelin' no more
I never been to the ocean - my ship is still sunk
I'm drunk & I'm dealin' with whores
