lyrics

Oh Lord what do I do
I want to teach 'em all a thing or two
The pipes are leaking underneath the house
and the clock on the wall forgot about
the hand that's shaking behind my back
and I hear something in the chimney

Oh Lord what do I do
I want to teach 'em all a thing or two
There's smoke in the kitchen and there's blood on the wall
and it ain't no wonder he forgot us
All the way to the river crushed grass moans
and cries to the tune of a gospel song

Oh Lord oh Lord
the thread the thread
that's weaving in and out my head
all through my skin
and into them
the day is coming like you said

Oh Lord what do I do
My thoughts are dripping like the bar room blues
the cat in the alley got the old dog's bone
never mind she's sleeping in the old dog's home
away from the water with her old last name
and her new age children ain't got no shame

Oh Lord what do I do
I want to teach 'em all a thing or two
they're step step stepping and it's right on time
and they're picking me up, they throw me in the line
the center of the circle now I can't see
and it's taking all the life and all the breath from me

Oh Lord oh Lord
the thread the thread
that's weaving in and out my head
all through my skin
and into them
the day is coming like you said

Oh Lord what do I do
I want to teach 'em all a thing or two
I want to teach 'em all a thing or two
I want to teach 'em all a thing or two
