1988. I was 19 years old. Paul A. Raney on drums. Recorded at A.P.P.L.E. Productions studio in Westville NJ.
Woke up one morning with a pain in my soul 2x
Such an emptiness had filled me
Oh my heart was black as coal
So I looked out my window to see the people shuffle on down
Yes I looked out my lonesome window to see 'em shufflin' all around
Oh I realized right then and there just precisely what was goin' down
ahh lemme have a little...
The young man on the hill... Lord, he shot himself dead
Yes that careless millionaire in the mansion put a bullet through his head
Cuz you see, don't matter if you're rich, poor, black or white
Everybody gets the blues in the night
me too baby YEAH!!!!
