Long Gone 02:08
Ruben Johnson had a lover by the name of Anna Lee She was a marvel of sweet mystery and delight And on her belly he would lay his tired head among the leaves Along the river bank beyond the factory light Ruben Johnson, Ruben Johnson where'd you ever get the nerve To make a lover of the likes of Anna Lee There's bitter poison in that wine though nothing ever felt so fine And she never meant to do no harm to thee Of an evening in the barroom, Ruben Johnson with his beer A sullen rounder moving close to Anna Lee In his eyes a burning fire and in his pocket was a knife And Ruben Johnson said this lady is with me chorus Then that knife just like a shark it swam down deep in Ruben's heart And all the mysteries of Babylon revealed And he beheld a flaming dove descend upon his lady love And then his legs betrayed him and he kneeled Anna Lee she cried aloud and in her eyes there was a cloud A-raining blood down in the canyons of her brain But Ruben Johnson he was free and all the drunkards they agree We'll never see another man like him again chorus
Crow Crow 02:54
