2. CHAIN GANG PARTNERS


Hallelujah, for the chain gang, hallelu…hallelu…
Brothers…sisters…there’s a linin’…hallelu…hallelu

I was stuck on Death Valley, got the Death Valley Blues
Shadows were behind me and a lot of bad, bad news
Have you seen the iron horse, the black evil train
Carryin’ our companions, wasted all in vain

Hallelujah, for junco partners, hallelu…hallelu…
Our hands are empty but faces well hidden…hallelu…hallelu

Lord, I feel like a deportee, I got no kinfolk around
A million miles, a million tears…when you’re prison bound
The bullet flies, there’s blood…blood traces and rhyme
I’ll meet you in hell baby if I ever get there on time

Hallelujah…

You know, many a young men died a hundred times
Like angels on heroin paid for their holy crimes
Blackbirds love to steal men’s grace and hide
But you can join ‘em at a motel down the horizon line

Hallelujah…
