lyrics

Ride to the west with your men and tool chest
bring your hammers and heartaches and glue
spirits ride in the dust of our trails
and they bite at the heels of our boots
over your face a black veil of lace
ensnaring your demons like flies
your baby is all gone and your sweetheart died young
but your gold towers up to the skies
brass bullets shine and wink
in their shadowy chests they speak
howling, “You are the one with your gold and your guns, murdering families! We’ll find our way back to thee!”
as the hammers stay beating their nails
I’m still keeping them off my trail
building doors in the floors under rooms that lay bare
except for a lone lock of hair
my little one you will live there
pray they choke on the saw-dusted air
climbing stairs stepping up to nowhere
