Another day that don’t end Another ship goin’ out Another day of anger, bitterness, and doubt I know how it happened I saw it begin I opened my heart to the world and the world came in Hello Mary Lou Hello Miss Pearl My fleet-footed guides from the underworld No stars in the sky shine brighter than you You girls mean business and I do too Well I’m the enemy of treason Enemy of strife Enemy of the unlived meaningless life I ain’t no false prophet I just know what I know I go where only the lonely can go I’m first among equals Second to none Last of the best You can bury the rest Bury ’em naked with their silver and gold Put them six feet under and pray for their souls What are you lookin’ at There’s nothing to see Just a cool breeze that’s encircling me Let’s go for a walk in the garden So far and so wide We can sit in the shade by the fountain-side I search the world over For the Holy Grail I sing songs of love I sing songs of betrayal Don’t care what I drink Don’t care what I eat I climbed the mountains of swords on my bare feet You don’t know me darlin’ You never would guess I’m nothing like my ghostly appearance would suggest I ain’t no false prophet I just said what I said I’m just here to bring vengeance on somebody’s head Put out your hand There’s nothing to hold Open your mouth I’ll stuff it with gold Oh you poor devil look up if you will The city of God is there on the hill Hello stranger A long goodbye You ruled the land But so do I You lost your mule You got a poison brain I’ll marry you to a ball and chain You know darlin’ The kind of life that I live When your smile meets my smile something’s got to give I ain’t no false prophet No I’m nobody’s bride Can’t remember when I was born And I forgot when I died
