lyrics

Skeleton Dream

Head:

Big sky over me.
Big sky over me.
Can't you see the vultures
circling over my body.
Oh, they pick my bones white
and I'll sleep through the night
on a skeleton dream.

Tucson with a penny to ride
Tucson with a penny to ride
I ain't got no water
and there ain't none in sight
The vultures, they tracked me down
my face is plastered all over town
And I'm a wanted man.

Head:

Thirsty all my life.
Thirsty, my tongue has gone dry.
And I would love to whet my words,
I'd spear the heart of those birds
But my speech went blunt
in a dust-bowl month
and I'm a silenced concern.

Lay me down in low desert sand.
Lay me down and sever my right hand,
so I ain't stealing no more
from the back of Samantha's store.
I only wanted her water
but she's an infidel daughter
to a God fearing man.
I only wanted her water
but she's an infidel daughter
to a God fearing man.

Head:

Big sky over me.
Big sky over me.
Can't you see the vultures
Circling over my body.
Oh, they pick my bones white
and I'll sleep through the night
on a skeleton dream.
