Mouth Harp Man

 

When your tongue's tied upl in a knot

And you're unravellin' inside

Take a bead on a nice clean shot

Turn it loose, go on and cry

Listen to the mouth harp man

 

When You're knocked down cold and flat

And you're feelin' black and blue

Chewed out and fed upo jack

Close your eyes and tap 'dem boots

Listen to the mouth harp man

 

            He's blowin' sad as acid rain

            But sweet as Bessie's sugar cane

            You can feel it upside and down below

            The right side of your brain

            Listen to the mouth harp man

            Listen to the mouth harp man

            Listen to the man

 

Now when lightnin' strikes the dice

And 'dem snake eyes take a bite

Pull the shade, barracade the door

You can't fake it anymore

Listen to the mouth harp man

 

            He's blowin' sad as acid rain

            But sweet as Bessie's sugar cane

            You can feel it upside and down below

            The right side of your brain

            Listen to the mouth harp man

            Listen to the mouth harp man

            Listen to the man

 

Now there's a train wreck in your head

And your heartbeat's leavin' town

Sit down, shutup, go on to bed

Close your eyes, go on and cry

Listen to the mouth harp man

 

(Repeat Chorus)
