lyrics

Tom grew up huffing gasoline
Now he’s the law man over me
But a fearful soul is never free
He found himself in jail

Tom got out, went to another state
Turned his pride into his fate
And now he guards the pearly gates
Empty as the sky

Three dark crosses burning in the night
Those country boys throw a hell of a fight
Everything’s crooked but love and the grave
I’m gonna be an honest man someday

Tom had a sister, her name was Jane
Tough as nails, and soft as rain
Fell in love with cocaine
Til’ a polo boy gave her a ring
But she never did feel the same
She found herself alone

Chorus

Years flow by and the love turns cold
Every crown weighs more than gold
Rinse off the dirt and forsake a name
But you can’t forget that southern thing
That whimsical beast with musical wings
Every man a sinner, every man a king
Pain makes the angels sing
Down in the third world
