The Rue of Ruby Whores

from Sides: I / J by FELL



Michael Hurley cover recorded direct to cassette.


I woke up on a summer's day
From dozin' on a bank of clay
The hot and humid fog
The splashin' of the water dog
Lo come a war canoe
And standing in the bow were you

Tell me friend if you got the time
Where in this woods does grow the healin' vine
And I was searchin' for my love
Who used to live in the hills above
And I don't live at all
No never since my last downfall

Over yonder in the briar patch
The animal lives there in a hole
And ne'er in the sun will stir
But come the fall of evenin' grey
Leaps and jumps away

Standin' on the mountain side
Just tryin' to get a little taste o' rain
My people used to live here
And I feel the same as they do
For I did dwell here too

There she be and she see me
Driftin' in my daggone dream
They throwed my window and doors
A century of misery
The Rue of Ruby whores
