lyrics

1. THE BURDEN
(A-YOU CAN’T BEAR)

I hung my head and cried away
With a burden that I can’t bear
It’s cold outside, nowhere to lay
Alone I stand, nobody’s near

I’ve been by the highway side
With clothes wet, tight against the skin
It’s a long gone ride my friend
Down yonder, where I’ve been

I’ll build a road, a stairway
And escape the chain gang
But no breeze gonna take away
The things that are left undone...left undone

I went down to praying grounds
I fell on my wounded knees
Thought I heard a stranger shout
“There’s no ending, no release…”

I might drink whiskey, might drink milk
Or from shallow water of the land
On Big Muddy I will sink
Like an out-of-tune chant

Like a smokestack silver linin’
Hidden in the dark clouds
When the strike comes a-shinin’ down
Off the skies, on the top of mound…on the top of mound
