lifeblood: songs: lyrics: oh city man


oh city man
oh city man
who built them skycrapers
mohawk hands

i'm chipping wood
pulling a plow
digging up the ground
where the indian bowed

and i'm thinking about the well that
don't run dry
thanking the lord
for the rain that falls
from the sky

oh preacher man
oh preacher man
who made your good book
greek and jew hands

i'm planting food
whistling a tune
i heard from a bird
it ain't got no words
but i'll teach it to you

hoo hoo hoo
hoo hoo hoo
hoo hoo hoo
hoo hoo hoo
hoo hoo

oh georgia man
oh georgia man
who made your moonshine
jackpot hands

i'm picking food
on my lottery land
and i know it ain't mine
but i love it
so here i stand

and thinking about the well that
don't run dry
thanking the lord
for the rain that falls
from the sky

oh son of man
oh son of man
what did you rise for
the errant human hand

i'm gathering
walking in the woods
i ain't afraid of being lost
but i am afraid of doing no good

hoo hoo hoo
hoo hoo hoo
hoo hoo hoo
hoo hoo hoo
hoo hoo

oh city man
oh city man
living on pavement
in the rain and the wind

oh city man
oh city man
come to the wilderness
where you can be free
again
