ShotgunSuzy

 

Out along the boundary and past the steps of man

We are rulers of the candy river, baby

Holding hands, making demands on the water and the wind

 

Orphans here reside and see with eyes that donít know sin

There is no shame. There is no sense in hiding

Iím going slow, but baby donít ya let me go tonight

 

Cause the candy river flows into a sea of marigolds

That Iíve painted blue, a favor to you and your friends

It doesnít cost you to believe, and itís a far sight better than where youíve been

 

Shotgun Suzy got high for the first time Tuesday

And Mama she ainít coming back again

She bites down to pass the time, just another concubine

To the long, happy wait for the end

But when you take it down

To the simple root of sound

Thereís nothing really left but to begin

 

Out along the boundary passed away the man

We are victims of the candy river, baby

Holding hands and sinking below the land, we just pretend

 

That Shotgun Suzy didnít get high for the last time Tuesday

Mama, she is going on the wind

She bit down passing by, just another concubine

To the lost, sheís got her end

But when you take it down

To the simple root of sound

Thereís nothing really left but to begin
