lyrics

Got a daughter living up in Michigan
Had a son who died at my own hand
Served twenty-two years in Huntsville prison
I ain’t gonna see no promised land

The streetlamp on the water looks so pretty
Bottles catching light like it’s the sun
On the Texas Eagle I turned fifty
Now I’m living under the bridge at Dead Man’s Run

Got a friend named Speed and he’s half-crazy
Says we ought to lift somebody’s ride
Got an open bottle of rotgut whiskey
I want to move but my body is so tired

Spring is when the wind starts breathing sweetly
By summertime, that breeze is good and gone
In fall the sun goes down too early
Now I’m living under the bridge at Dead Man’s Run

Preacher at the mission says salvation
Is for anyone who wants to be free
But any Jesus truly worth the knowing
Would not want a thing to do with me

San Francisco’s hard and always foggy
And New Mexico’s no place to be alone
On the Texas Eagle I turned fifty
Now I’m living under the bridge at Dead Man’s Run

In fall the sun goes down awful early
Now I’m living under the bridge at Dead Man’s Run

Since their start in 2012, Jack Hotel has proven itself one of the best, and most original, folk acts in the midwest. ... more
