Lyrics of

Lucky Henry

View the transcriptions
Dusted down in shanty town behind a wall of red
Hoist upon some frozen dawn exploding in my head
Fast asleep in trouble deep or wide awake and burning
Stuck inside some strangers hide who's karma keeps returning

Where you trail that holy grail of darkness and dispair
Way cross town now up now down as though you'd really care
On the bus across from us seen once in a silhouette
The old man's face you could not place that now you can't forget

Down and dirty
There you go 
Lucky Henry says hello
Burned his bridges
High and low
And down the road and gone
It's raining boxcars
Did you know
From county cook to Baltimore
Where ever those old jockeys go
To live out their lifelines
Burning down that two lane town the boys call Hollywood
Kicked around now lost now found now lost again for good
Badly placed or half erased or lost in space and time
And all because the last one was the disappearing kind

Now you tumble 
Now you know
Lucky Henry says hello
Scratched in verses
High and low
And down to hell and gone I'm told
It's raining boxcars that's for sure
From Bakersfield to Elsinore
For all what I care anymore
For now and forever gone gone gone
