Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down

I drew a sabre through her
It was a bloody knife
I threw her in the river
Which was a dreadful sign

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the starry crown
Good Lord, show me the way!

I'm gonna lay down my burden, down by the riverside,
Down by the riverside, down by the riverside.
I'm gonna lay down my burden, down by the riverside,
I'm gonna study war no more.

Shall we gather at the river,
Where bright angel feet have trod,
With its crystal tide forever
Flowing by the throne of God?

Deep river, my home is over Jordan
Deep river, Lord
I want to cross over into camp ground

Oh, don't you want to go
To that gospel feast
That promised land
Where all is peace

Everybody's talkin' 'bout
Bagism, Shagism, Dragism, Madism, Ragism, Tagism
This-ism, that-ism, ism ism, I don't know
All we are saying is give peace a chance
All we are saying is give peace a chance

Once upon a time a girl with moonlight in her eyes
Put her hand in mine and said she loved me so
But that was once upon a time, very long ago

Monuments burn into moments
Up into other worlds
Other ascensions
Without deep sorrow to endure

If all things must fall
Why build a miracle at all?
If all things must pass
Even a pyramid won't last

One day I noticed the world at my feet
Next day comes and it rolls into the street
Gathering speed
Paying no heed
That made me bleed until I was blue

But you know I never wanted to
Ah, you know I did it just for you

I would do anything for you
I would climb mountains
I would swim all the oceans blue
I would walk a thousand miles
Reveal my secrets
More than enough for me to share
I would put roses round our door
Sit in the garden
Growing potatoes by the score

I'll do anything
For you dear anything
For you mean everything to me
I know that
I'll go anywhere
For your smile, anywhere --
For your smile, ev'rywhere --
I'd see

Set my guitar on fire with a long-stemmed match
Dance while it burns and laugh when it turns to ash
I would torch everything to keep you warm
I would do anything to keep you from harm

I would do anything
To cover you body and soul, girl

I'll protect you from the hooded claw
Keep the vampires from your door
When the chips are down, I'll be around
With my undying, death-defying love for you

Against all Satan’s spells and wiles,
Against false words of heresy,
Against the knowledge that defiles,
Against the heart’s idolatry,
Against the wizard’s evil craft,
Against the death wound and the burning,
The choking wave, the poisoned shaft,
Protect me, Christ, till Thy returning.

All Evil it has come from here
The Camphor gets no warmer
Ye Nacoaler, our Crucified Creator
Down count to zero burning cold now
I'll be there for the rest of my life

Tomorrow
Xiberia
Xiberia
Xiberia
I want to breathe
But out of you
Malaria Messiah

Her eyes like windows, trickle in rain
Upon the pane, getting deeper
Though my love wants to relieve her
She walks alone from wall to wall
Lost in her hall, she can't hear me
Though I know she likes to be near me

Sometimes
I feel the ocean in my blood
See rain from the sky above
Her salt brined tears
And now
Those tears leave a taste on my tongue
Like the warm rush you get from
Black opium
Black opium

She messed around with a bloke named Smokey
She loved him though he was cokey
He took her down to Chinatown
And he showed her how to kick the gong around

I don't want to work
I want to bang on the drum all day
I don't want to play
I just want to bang on the drum all day

A bad little kid moved into my neighborhood
He won't do nothing right just sitting down and look so good
He don't want to go to school and learn to read and write
Just sits around the house and plays the rock and roll music all night
Well, he put some tacks on teachers chair
Puts chewing gum in little girl's hair
Man, junior, behave yourself

Well, he went down to dinner in his Sunday best
Excitable boy, they all said
And he rubbed the pot roast all over his chest
Excitable boy, they all said
Well, he's just an excitable boy

A mother sings a lullaby to a child
Sometime in the future the boy goes wild
And all his nerves are feeling some kind of energy
