lyrics

I've been wading through stagnant waters as the willows weep
Hear the shrill call of the nightingale crying wolf from the sycamore trees
I've been wading through stagnant waters as the willows weep

Pretty girls and the grinning reaper, they come and go
Maybe it's just the whiskey talking or the shimmer of her sun-bleached bones
But pretty girls and the grinning reaper, they come and go

There's pomade in the devil's hair, slinging snake oil cures
Hot sands and bleeding horses, red dirt and rusted spurs
There's pomade in the devil's hair, slinging snake oil cures

I'm gonna drive a Hearse through this one-horse-town till I rise, like a phoenix, I rise
Engine steam and tobacco teeth, shaking the cold, clammy hand of Time
I'm gonna drive a Hearse through this one-horse-town till I rise, like a phoenix, I rise
