Strange Dreams

Hey pretty baby on the south bound train

Step close to the fire let me feel that flame

Don’t speak no lies through that crystal ball

Show me the world and Ill take it all

Morning sun gives toast to the moon

As we float by on a red balloon

A voodoo woman said I’d go far

Slap me in the face and kicked me out of her car



You wanna be a star you got it

Oh don’t you know you got it

That’s what she said

But even those stars they shine so brightly just to fall

So I wrap myself up in another song

I’m gonna write it all down and sing it all wrong

Walkinstick walkinstick walkinstick man

Walk on by just as far as you can

It’s so hard to be poor these days

I watch it all collapse through a midnight haze

Hey copper man with your slick black hat

Throw me to the curb show me where it’s at

Don’t cut your eyes just throw the cuffs on me

But you’re the only one here that wants to be like me



You wanna be a star you got it

Oh but you’ll never have

I keep giving the all I got till there’s nothing left

I spent my time on everybody else so I think it’s about time 
I started helping myself


Three black birds on a power line

Lightning strikes baby just in time

One went to heaven and one went to hell

And the other is with me in the county jail

Used to know a man speak words through rhyme

Even do a dance for a shiny dime

It’s been so long I wonder where he went

The last thing she said he was the president

Blackberry deluxe the only one that I trust

She’s the one that takes it all on me

Throw me through this place darling show me some space

Just the one to take it all on me

Strange dreams, strange dreams
