THE DEPRESSION RAG

 

LOW LIGHT, SHADOW EYE, AND LONG-LOCK DRAG

HIM STILL GOT MAGIC IN HIS MAGIC BAG

COME LISTEN CLOSELY NOW

TO THE DEPRESSSION RAG

 

ALWAYS LONELY, BUT NEVER ALONE

NO SWEET HOME-COMING WHEN I DRAG MY TAIL HOME

AIN'T GOT NO KITTY, JUST A&ldots;

BLACK CAT BONE

 

I'D LIKE TO TALK TO YOU, 

BUT UNDERSTANDING WOULDN'T COME

CAN YOU HEAR MY CANDLE BURN? 

AND WILL YOU LIGHT ANOTHER ONE?

BREATH DEEP ND SIGH, I'LL TELL YOU WHY

 

THE DEPRESSION RAG WALKS ON DOWN

WITH WOODEN SHOE AND A FUN'RAL GOWN

TO PUT THE SUNSHINE&ldots;&ldots;IN THE GROUND

 

THE QUESTIONS COME NOWM FASTER THAN EVER

CARESS YOUR CURIOSITY, JUST LIKE A FEATHER

BUT ANSWERS COME MORE SLOWLY NOW

SOMETIMES&ldots;&ldots;..NEVER

 

I'D LIKE TO TAK TO YOU, 

BUT UNDERSTANDING WOULDN'T COME

CAN YOU HEAR MY CANDLE BURN? 

AND WILL YOU LIGHT ANOTHER ONE?

BREATH DEEP ND SIGH, I'LL TELL YOU WHY

(LEAD)

I'D LIKE TO TAK TO YOU, 

BUT UNDERSTANDING WOULDN'T COME

CAN YOU HEAR MY CANDLE BURN? 

AND WILL YOU LIGHT ANOTHER ONE?

BREATH DEEP ND SIGH, I'LL TELL YOU WHY

 

LOW LIGHT, SHADOW EYE, AND LONG-LOCK DRAG

HIM STILL GOT MAGIC IN HIS MAGIC BAG

COME LISTEN CLOSELY NOW

TO THE DEPRESSSION RAG.
