Virtue’s daughter won’t you help me to keep
my troubles from going nowhere
I’m just another man who’s traveled all the way
here to find some things ain’t never changing
old preachers rambling bout the gold upstairs
ya gotta make a livin’ down here too
but you won’t get too far with a gun in your hand
jesus, mary, and joseph please be patient
everything you called the promised land
was just a bit of dirt that got washed up
this river’s gonna rise and this boat is bound to sink
think I’ll just head back to where I’m from
discord my brother you seldom take a break
you’ve been on the job much too long
a thousand days and just as many nights
it’s a shame you’ve only just begun
wandering across this land a blue eyed babe
a moonlit vision on the move
even with the racket and the howling of the riots
I swear you can hear those footsteps coming
I don’t fear the chills of washing in the lake
The Indian summer warmed it up
But if swimming next to you is still against the law
Think I’ll just head back to where I’m from
Between you and me, the bedpost, and the night
I’m never quite sure what to say
With chaos in the headlines let’s turn it all around
And head right on back the way we came
