Goddam, well I declare, help’s on the way! So let me lay my proposition down; it’s the last fair deal in the country. Don’t hang your head and let the two time roll. There’s no use singin’ the mexicali blues as there comes a time when one man must gather what another man spills. While some folks trust in reason, others trust in might; but since it costs a lot to win, you got to roll them laughing bones, for tomorrow, maybe go beneath the ground. So now the die is shaken, now the die must fall, and you know it’s gonna get stranger when you invite a friend of the devil as your passenger to come dancing in the streets til the morning comes. He may be a loser, but you\'ll never find another honest man. So believe it if you need it or leave it if you dare, just remember, the grass aint greener, the wine aint sweeter either side of the hill. That’s why if you please, I am on my bending knees, just one thing I ask of you, just one thing for me; can I go buddy, can I go down, take your shift at the mine?
28 years so far and what a long strange trip it’s been! Never had such a good time cause the music’s never stopped, but if it had too, would sure like to go out in style. The storyteller makes no choice, but if fortune comes a crawlin’, and the four winds blow me safely home, you’d find me sittin’ on top of the world. And if not me, well a broken heart don’t feel so bad; and at least I’ve enjoyed the ride.
Faring thee well now
