Snake Mountain Blues Mr ten dollar man Let me tell where you're bound Drink your green liquor, lord You'll roll to the ground But you come around here With your money in your hand Taste of my woman Well, you die where you stand Snake Mountain's gonna crumble, lord And fall from the sky Before that woman of mine Stops tellin' her lies If I'd die, lord, she'd weep She'd weep and she'd mourn Soon as I was buried Forget I'd been born Snake Mountain Blues Have got me down low I could die in the morning But no one would know My woman come around My body she'd find Go down to Dundee And have her a time Well a black skin woman Won't do you no harm Slow start moaning She don't moan for long But a yellow headed woman Brings nothing but pain Takes all you give her Leaves only shame My daddy, lord, he rides On a long holy train First winds of winter I'll see him again And it's farewell to this Yellow headed misery I've known Snake Mountain's calling Calling me home Papa was a rollin' stone Wherever he laid his hat was his home And when he died Papa was a rollin' stone Wherever he laid his hat was his home And when he died All that he left was alone Snake Mountain Blues Got me down low I could die in the morning But no one would know My woman come around My body she'd find Go down to Dundee And have her a time

Lonely to Lonesome From lonely to lonesome is a dark stretch of time Up in solitary for a partnerin’ crime It’s a distance you measure by the walls that you climb From lonely to lonesome takes a stark turn of mind If you don’t know the difference, you ain’t known either one Not the lonely that hits you when you’ve lost your someone Nor the lonesome that follows if you don’t come undone ‘Cause one to the other there’s a gauntlet to run If you see me out smilin', then the lonesome’s kicked in Maybe lonely got drowned-out by whiskey and gin Or just a lonesome delusion’s clouded my head again Either way, I’m surviving, should you ask how I’ve been From lonely to lonesome is a dark stretch of time Up in solitary for a partnerin’ crime It’s a distance you measure by the walls that you climb From lonely to lonesome takes a stark turn of mind I’m a lone semantician, you might be thinkin' by now Why should I parse definitions in a song, anyhow? Because you find it a joke, dear, to see me furrow my brow When lonely to lonesome is all the range you allow From lonely to lonesome is a dark stretch of time Up in solitary for a partnerin’ crime It’s a distance you measure by the walls that you climb From lonely to lonesome takes a stark turn of mind From lonely to lonesome is a dark stretch of time

Leaving Me Incrementally Your leaving me incrementally Has turned me upside-down You come to take a few small things Back to your side of town Lord knows this weren’t no sudden split I’ll likely come around But your leavin me incrementally Has slowly dragged me down Losing you’s blown all out of proportion What little feel I’ve left for Love and Fortune Our house is less a home by micro measures As you drop by to loot our worldly treasures Three-eighths of the time I feign not knowin The quarter of my soul that’s glad you’re goin Of heartache’s pain I’ve yet but felt a fraction This lonliness is all slo-mo reaction Your leaving me incrementally Has turned me upside-down You come to take a few small things Back to your side of town Lord knows this weren’t no sudden split I’ll likely come around But your leavin me incrementally Has slowly dragged me down
