    Crickets are chirping
    The water is high
    There’s a soft cotton dress on the line
    Hang dry
    The window’s wide open
    African trees
    Bent over backwards
    In a hurricane breeze

    Not a word of goodbye
    Not even a note
    She’s gone with the man in the
    Long black coat

    Somebody seen him
    Hangin’ around
    At the old dance hall
    On the outskirts of town
    He looked into her eyes
    When she stopped him to ask
    If he wanted to dance
    He had a face like a mask
    Somebody said
    From the bible he quote
    There was dust on the man in the
    Long black coat
    Preacher was talking
    There’s a sermon he gave
    Said every man’s conscience
    Is vile and deprave
    You can not depend on it
    To be your guide
    When it’s you
    Who must keep it satisfied

    It ain’t easy to swallow
    It sticks in the throat
    She gave her heart to the man in the
    Long black coat

    One, two
    There are no mistakes in life
    Some people say
    It’s true sometimes
    You can see it that way
    People don’t live or die
    People just float
    She gave her heart to the man in the
    Long black coat

    There’s smoke on the water
    It’s been there since June
    Tree trunks uprooted
    In the high crescent moon
    Hear the pulse
    And vibration
    And the rumblin’ force
    Somebody’s out there
    Beating on a dead horse

    She never said nothin’
    There was nothin’ she wrote
    She’s gone with the man in the
    Long black coat
    She’s gone with the man in the
    Long black coat
    She’s gone
    She’s gone
    Gone with the man in the
    Long black coat
    Gone with the man in the
    Long black coat
