Lyrics


Red-Winged Blackbird Man

I was born from my mother with a second wind
so that’s when my thoughts turn on
I can balance charm on a barbed wire
with a mouth like a golden gun
That horizon there been smokin’ for an hour now
It’s best I get moving on

Something about you I can’t run from
It keeps me from going wild
They sell low grade goods for a high price
They don’t want the man they want the child
That horizon there been smokin’ for an hour now
If I die I might regret it for awhile

You stood on a flame in a white dress
I got blood dripping off my hands
I aint no phoenix rising
I’m the red winged blackbird man
That horizon there been smokin’ for an hour now
we should run while we can

All is quiet on the western front
My feet are shuffling on my grave
I’ll take a bullet for beauty baby mama
They might even call me brave
That horizon there been smokin’ for an hour now
If we move we might be saved

I think I’ll go back to the Midwest
In those fields where I can see
I don’t think its that I ain’t forgotten you
It’s you ain’t forgotten me
That horizon there been smokin’ for an hour now
I think its time I go see my family
