Lyrics

It smells like Sherman’s ghost down here / someone’s poisoned the squirrels
The fire has reached the birdhouse now / all smoke and silver curls
If you aint got nothin’ good to say / don’t say anything
That’s what our public servants say / when they read the news

And I feel like I’m a thousand miles from you.


The devil’s in the money seat, baby / he’s counting cards and making deals
I guess nothing ever changes for those people / they’ll sell a soldier for a buck
Just before the city turned / Tremaine took shelter in the hills
Out beyond the cane-break baby / where the sky is still blue

And I feel like I’m a thousand miles from you.


I’m sleeping with the crows tonight baby / black water at my shoes
Old Henry’s old dog snaps at fireflies baby / cause none of us can sleep
knocked down by a wicked wind / the water rose up to his chin
That wasn’t what done him in / it was losing track of his old girlfriend

And I feel like I’m a thousand miles from you.
