Oh Precious Cargo

 

Ol papers under glass

Passin' on names to namesakes

Two livin' it up to snuff

One broken heart to another

 

Don't let your arms grow numb

Reachin' back and forward

Some ol sound said spoken for

One broken heart to another

 

            Deliver son oh precious cargo

            I'm down to one broken heart to another

            Deliver son oh precious cargo

            Love bares a sober scoldin'

 

Heart throbbin' needy

Savin' up for a rollin' holler

Goodness gracious straightback east

One broken heart to another

 

(Chorus)

 

Now them glory clothes don't fit

In a closet mansion uptown

Good for nothin' documents

For one broken heart to another

 

(Chorus)

 

Ol papers under glass

Passin' on names to namessakes

 

(Chorus)

(Chorus)

 

Love bares a sober scoldin'...
