lyrics

oh honey take me out i’m a dead man
oh baby bake me something sweet
oh honey take me out i’m a dead man
oh baby give me bread to eat
 
there are places in the damp northwest where
the bodies lie down head to feet
there were loses in the california sunshine
tell you stories that you can’t repeat
 
in the winter when the valleys flooded
those were towns where the rooms were cheap
the summer dirt lines the corners of your pockets
i’m still buried there ten feet deep
 
papa don’t place this curse on me
heaven knows i can’t use it
papa don’t place this stone on me
mama there’s no future in it.
 
we travel on the back roads lightly
through carson city and the hills beyond
me and joan on the sacramento
me and joan this is where we’re from
 
oh honey take me out i’m a dead man
oh baby bake me something sweet
oh honey take me out i’m a dead man
oh baby give me bread to eat
 
papa don’t place this curse on me
heaven knows i can’t use it
papa don’t place this curse on me
mama there’s no future in it.
 
oh honey take me out i’m a dead man
oh baby bake me something sweet
oh honey take me out i’m a dead man
oh baby give me bread to eat
 
oh honey wears the colours of the springtime
the pale green of an organdy dress
her shadow grows in the california sunshine
but nothing else in the south, southwest.
