Opening LyricsSong Title
The Mississippi Delta was shining like a national guitar.
The first thing I remember I was lying in my bed, I couldn't have been more than one or two.
Truth or lie? The silence is revealing an empty sky, a hidden mound of stone.
Fat Charlie the archangel sloped into the room.
'Well, did you bring me my money? My cab fare? My new shoes? I've got expenses, y'know, where's my weekly dues?'
The couple in the next room are bound to win a prize, they've been going at it all night long.
There's been some hard feelings here about some words that were said...
A man walks down the street and he says 'Why am I soft in the middle now? Why am I soft in the middle when the rest of my life is so hard?'
'The problem is all inside your head,' she said to me...
Down among the reeds and rushes, a baby boy was found; his eyes as clear as centuries, his silky hair was brown.
Well I'm accustomed to a smooth ride, or maybe I'm a dog who's lost his bite.

You've got the cool water when the fever runs high. You've got that look of love light in your eyes.
May twelve angels guard you as you sleep. Maybe that's a waste of angels; I don't know.
It was a slow day, and the sun was beating on the soldiers by the side of the road.
I met my old lover on the street last night, she seemed so glad to see me.
We sailed up a river wide as a sea, and slept on the banks on the leaves of a banyan tree...
The mama pyjama rolled out of bed and she ran to the police station.
We heard the fireworks, rushed out to watch the sky. Happy-go-lucky, fourth of July.
A family of musicians took shelter for the night in the little harbour church of St Cecilia
It's carbon and monoxide, the old Detroit perfume....
