MR. BONES

Country Rock

Daddy was heading straight home from town

Saw a stranger waving, flagging him down

He pulled up alongside and said "My name is Bones"

“It's late to be walking, let’s get you off the road”

Man threw his bag in the back of Daddy’s pick up truck

He said “I’m sure obliged, but I don’t believe in luck

Back down the road you see that cloud of dust

There’s trouble a coming, I hope this truck is fast Mr. Bones”

 

The sun is rolling down like a freight train

Trouble’s sneaking up in the dark lane

The end is getting nearer

Running out of time

Blind out front leading the blind

The Devil is in the corner laughing at his lies

Mr. Bones, do you pray?

Daddy kicked that old truck into gear

Stones and gravel flying up in the air

He said “ Hey, mister don’t you worry now

If we can’t out run him then we’ll beat him somehow

Down at the crossroads I’ve seen it done

The people there together, you watch that Devil run

He’ll surprised when he sees we’re more than one

He don’t like a fair fight, it brings him undone”

 

The sun is rolling down like a freight train

Trouble’s sneaking up in the dark lane

I’ve been hounding the Devil and he’s so angry now

He’s right behind us and he’s mad as hell

No one is going to win this round

Down at the crossroads they slid to a halt

They stood shoulder to shoulder in the light of God

The Devil he stop chasing when he saw that sign

He looked across and said maybe another time Mr. Bones

Maybe another time (maybe another time)

Mr. Bones, hey, hey ,hey

The sun is rolling down like a freight train

Trouble’s sneaking up in the dark lane

The end is getting nearer,

We’re running out of time

Blind out front leading the blind

No bullets and no gun are gonna win this time

Mr. Bones, do you pray?

 

Go on and pray

Br brave, be brave, be brave
