Dead Melodies


 where will you go when this day is over
gambler's purse lays on the road  
 straight to your door
 snakes have gone crazy tonight
 winding their way out of sight   

a laugh, a joke a sentiment wasted
seasons of strangers they've come and gone
doldrums are pounding,
cheapskates are clowning this town
who could disown themselves now

engineer, slow down this old train
cinders and chaff laugh at the moon
night birds will cackle
rotting like apples on trees
 sending their dead me

A A7 Am C D D7 Dm E Em G
