lyrics

The Greatest Flood

I swear I’m going to find the pearl
I’ve been searching all my life
I’m just a little bag of bones
Just a little bag of bones
Nothing more

I’m going to cross the devil’s track
And make a name for his step
What a man ought to know
What a man ain’t seen just yet

Go out alone but it’s all right
Someday I’m going to find
The greatest flood
Far behind

Love in my boot
I keep dragging along
Running out from the dues
That been dead and gone

Today’s my bird
Tomorrow my perch
Kick me out to the sun
Hanging out ‘til it hurt

Go out alone but it’s all right
Someday I’m going to find
The greatest flood
Far behind

I swear I’m going to find the pearl
I’ve been searching all my life
I’m just a little bag of bones
Just a little bag of bones
Nothing more
