    Cruel White Water

    Up near the border where the cruel white water
    drowns the vagabond who sleeps too low
    me and my companion, the famous Jack Of Lanterns
    tracked the misty mountains through the snow
    I ran across the hidden chord but I could not learn the changes
    the blue Pacific called and I had to go
    there was holy on the ivy in the apparition mountains
    but the warmest bed I found was ten below
    courted lady Greensleeves, she pushed me out the window
    I landed like a feather in the trees
    took off across New Mexico and landed in the bayou
    but the catfish were too lean, and I had to blow
    don't lie for gold--no no no no!
    don't lie for love--that turns out cold
    if life depends, just get out whole...
    but don't lie for less, no no no no!
    Marie Marie, Marie Helena
    you're my amour, you're my own heart
    Marie Marie, Marie Helena
    Marie Marie, Marie Helena!
    Left a life of ease and caught that black iron steamer
    across the barren waste to your arcade
    singing 'take me to your leader' in my strangest country tenor
    but the bad I set to lay was half way made
    leftover pieces weren't exactly what I needed
    they didn't have much meaning on their own
    there was some talk of deviation, but from what was never mentioned
    so I set out to find my wrong way home
    home inside the hour, I was tuning my guitar
    where I got that sudden urge I know too well
    I finished my rendition of 'Don't Pity My Condition'
    and then looked around to find what I could sell
    You can't sell your soul! Leave that alone!
    You can't change your role Big Daddy Lowe
    Don't break your back for less than love!
    and don't trade your love for stars above!
    Marie Marie, Marie Helena
    you're my amour, you're my own heart
    Marie Marie, Marie Helena
    Marie Marie, Marie Helena!
    Caught up with Jack Of Lanterns in a town called Make It Hurt
    preaching three card monte in the Live And Let It church
    the choir was down and dirty, drawing bad and betting worse
    we left at ten past six in a padded hearse
    I might find companions in after hours taverns
    to tell a tale or two I've never heard
    but the strangest song I know
    is what the thunder said to lightening
    and I never could recall a single word
    except...
    Up near the border where the cruel white water
    drowns the vagabond who sleeps too low
    me and my companion, the famous Jack Of Lanterns
    tracked the misty mountains through the snow
    don't lie for gold--no no no no!
    don't lie for love--that turns out cold
    if life depends, just get out whole...
    but don't lie for less--no no no no!
    Marie Marie, Marie Helena
    by firelight you steal my heart
    Marie Marie, Marie Helena
    Marie Marie, Marie Helena!
