Hank's Inferno

Canto I
it should not bring amazement to thy face.
I'm so lonesome I could cry
shed tears, and in their looks appeared subdued
Headin' south from Caroline

and turning to the right along its ridge,
Rootie Tootie, she's my Monday gal.
Farinata and Tegghiaio, who so worthy were,
I stand on the banks of the river

its mosques already in that valley there,
Praise the Lord I saw the light.
what time the Giants caused the Gods to fear;
Why Don't You Love Me like you used to do.

because his eyesight could not lead him far
Since my baby said goodbye
is bathed by waters which therein find rest.
And I'll catch all the fish in the bayou

its body is taken from it by a demon,
With the pride that came between us
where Hercules set up those signs of his,
A sweatin' and swearin'

than to remember happy days in days
You should see the people stare
as I, after such words as these were uttered,
You didn't even know, the chances you were takin'

“Nearer than thou dost hope he then replied,
Darlin I could never be ashamed of you
since which till now I ’ve had him by the hair;
For you've grown tired of all the love I gave you

that from the pyre it seems to rise, whereon
You tried and lost, now pay the cost
mantled already with that planet’s rays
Didn't think you would leave me behind

for great desire constraineth me to learn
Jesus said ,come on to me
“Before I tear myself from this abyss,
I'll meet my loved ones there, in that land so bright and fair

because the Fishes o’er the horizon quiver,
You lived on promises I knew would fall apart
whose nature differed in no way from that,
They're leavin' on that Devil's Train

ungrateful, wicked people, which of old
When it rains - it wets ever'thing we got
that so dost in our short life goad us on,
Dear, I must throw your things away

but, as I told him, his own spitefulness
At the close of Ev'ry day
’gainst me inflamed the minds of every one;
I've sent your saddle home.

Canto II
I, therefore: “Teacher, say what town is this?
How she cried when I left her
Abram the patriarch, and David king,
Will you please make up your mind what you want me to do

If it be true the right bank slopeth so,
In my dreams you're still my only darlin'
‘Father, thou lookest so! What aileth thee?’
Just how much mama worried when we children were away

he ne’er so changed two natures, that the forms
Around me many are building
even by the God it was not thine to know,
'Cause My Bucket's Got A Hole In It

but that complete experience may be giv’n him,
Will you move to that beautiful city
seems not unfitting to a thoughtful man;
Now boys don't start to ramblin' round

mayst thou, accursèd spirit, here remain,
But dear I hope you're happy just the same
to one of them my Leader then began,
Mother is gone, to her home

would fain excuse myself, and all the while
And get no lovin' in return
to those who burdens win by severing bonds.
I guess that I - should not complain

set not thy feet upon the burning sand,
There just ain't nobody knows what I go through
Why dost thou lodge such baseness in thy heart,
Those wedding bells will never ring for me

defended by a lovely little stream.
Now I got rockin' chair money
the hope I had of winning to the top.
The porch rotted down - that's more expense

which for the bone were strong as are a dog’s.
Ev'rybody's lonesome for somebody else
And as I, looking, came into their midst,
He's repeating these words he was told.

And one of them, who felt aggrieved, perhaps,
'cause I'm cryin' for you, dear
And I said: “Teacher, wait now for me here,
Oh the rain is slowly fallin',

the reason why such discord hath assailed her.
Tote it on over (move it on over)
but what brings thee into such pungent sauces?
My number's in the book

replied: “To this condition I was come
Then all God's faithful children will raise up from the dead
‘O Lady of virtue, thou through whom alone
And then maybe these tears

Canto III
Gallura’s man, a vessel of all fraud,
Son of a gun we'll have big fun on the bayou
that I may somewhat vent the pain that fills
Now I ain't had a kiss since I fell out of my crib

those frightful Giants, whom, when from the sky
You'll cry and cry
which comes along so cloven at the top,
And there's pictures of keys and of strife

Semiramis she is, of whom one reads
THEN IT'S USELESS TO YOU, IF YOU'VE STRAYED FROM THE FOLD,
who Latin is? And he: “Not long ago
So scratch it on over (move it on over)

for fires I now beheld, and wailings heard;
LORD I WENT TO THE DOCTOR, HE TOOK ONE LOOK,
repent her not, whoever subtly looks
If it was rainin' gold I wouldn't stand a chance

Then, having talked among themselves awhile,
Got 'em in the bottom of my ramblin' shoes,
So wholly wast thou then intent on him
Lord you better keep it on your mind

his nose cut off as far as ’neath his brows,
I know that I - should leave, but then
recall to mind our avaricious breasts.
I'm going home, I'm going home

A narrow slit within the moulting-tower,
For when she went away, my world ended that day
behold who sickens all the world with stench!
That I wouldn't settle down if I could

remain, that him so dark a land didst show.
I heard the angels singing songs of peace and rest
There is a devil here behind, who thus
Those who seek it will recieve it, mercy at the Savior's feet.

and after it there came so long a line
She leaves Cincinnati headin' down that Dixie line
and still more will there be, until the Hound
tell her that I've met my saviour

to seek their profit and avoid their loss,
They nailed his hands there on the cross
which bears, because of me, the name of Hunger,
But what good would it do

to have the people pass across the bridge,
It makes me laugh and it makes me cry
Let us leave him alone, nor talk in vain;
Not even the angels; in heaven will know

and thus like crystal visors wholly fill
Just a picture from life's other side
Now canst thou, son, behold the short-lived cheat
WHEN THE WORLD IS ON FIRE, ON THAT JUDGEMENT DAY,

Canto IV
thus upside down? And in so short a time
I got the lovesick blues
and seed of their conception and their birth.
now my key, it don't fit no more

from this thy reading, think now for thyself
I got all that I can do just to mind my own
but of the good to treat which there I found,
Just another guy on the lost highway

Eurỳpylus, and in a certain place
Where the cotton grows and the suwanee flows,
And he replied to me: “They each and all
Yea! My Bucket's Got A Hole In It

as greyhounds are, when from their chains unleashed.
So I don't care if tomorrow never comes.
I think that he had risen upon his knees.
Yes, i'm goin' back to dixie, that's the place i long to be,

by that beast’s anger which I quenched just now.
and carry on
“whence dwells in you this overweening pride?
And when I find me that river, Lord I'm gonna pay the price, oh Lord

and I still gazing at its lofty wall,
I've fetched your saddle home.

FOR NO MATTER HOW MUCH EARTHLY WEALTH YOU GET HOLD,

When I perceived at last that I had reached
Of a family I once knew.
and therefore with its mark the lesser ring
But I'm sure the truth would show

And he, who understood my covert speech,
Oh! Plea-ease - don't let me love you
Her eyes were shining brighter than a star,
All alone I bear the shame

although this trench goes round eleven miles,
You're nice to me when there's no one else around
when sweetly and softly she began to say,
I bowed my head and cried again

some lying are; and some are standing up,
Scoot it on over (move it on over)
I cannot well say how I entered it,
Won't you sometimes think of me

where that vale ended which had pierced my heart
Whom God has called back to the fold
whence I to him: “My Teacher, who moves this?
He always wore his Sunday feathers and held a tomahawk

These churchmen were, who have no hairy covering
The river of life
people I saw upon a great stream’s bank;
But you wouldn't let it be

Canto V
Then, having raised my brows a little higher,
And in her eyes the gleam again that old time tender light
They had no feathers, but were like a bat’s
I'm sentenced to die at dawn

of that which many voyages has made;
The first scene is that of a gambler
Then, as it pleased him, I embraced his neck,
When you're alone and blue tonight my little darlin'

of such a nature were the flames that moved
I don't care who thinks we're silly you'll be daffy and I'll be dilly
They go by thousands round about the moat,
No-bod-o-dy lonesome for me.

When they were somewhat pacified again,
We'll meet in heaven some glad day. ...
These words were wafted down to us from them.
I stand on the banks of the river

to see if any yonder air themselves;
I'm like a weepin'-willow, while we're apart
now from the flames, now from the heated soil.
I knew not where the road would end

when I was in it, cast mine eyes around,
We'll take in all the honky tonks tonight we're havin' fun
who yonder claws herself with filthy nails,
LOVING YOU AND KNOWING YOU WERE UNTRUE,

and out of it there came a stench, like that
The first three months, was all OK,
Yet dead men’s feet are not thus wont to do.
I'VE GOT THE MEAN OLD MISERIES IN MY SOUL,

the execution of so great a charge,
There's more fish in the sea
his arms he opened, and took hold of me.
There was a time when I believed that you belonged to me

till thou return, I ’ll talk with this wild beast,
Praise the Lord I saw the light.
And as a frog remains, to do its croaking,
As I brushed your arm and walked so close to you ...

the thoughts thou hast will all be proven false.
I leave you the day, to help all your neighbors
and led me to the bush, which all in vain
And out in the darkness the whippoorwills cry.

While toward the lowland I was falling fast,
From the start to the VJ day
“These have no hope of death, and so low down
came the day you said you'd be my own

the undiscerning life which made them foul,
My life with you baby has been one hard knock
who are these people that such honor have,
Her eyes reflect the nightlife her cheeks they're red with paint

Canto VI
should have been welcomed in the world above.
To live in when this life is o'er
’t is now abandoned like a thing outworn.
And now the bitter teardrops start

the enterprise so hastily commenced.
As we pay tribute to one of the greatest of all time Bob Wills
‘Him of Duera’ thou canst say, ‘I saw
Why when I married you, you were such a meek little thing

The latter streaked their faces with their blood,
BUT YOU HAVE TREATED ME SO BAD,
Averrhoès, who made the famous comment.
I'll never see that gal of mine

as if it were not, longs for that which is;
And I Just Don't Like This Kind Of Livin'.
Two paws it had, all hairy to the arm-pits;
To anyone who's fool enough to fall ...

He of the dropsy: “Here thou sayest true,
About my daddy
the town, whose name is Dis, is drawing near
days we could recall if you would only try dear

thus is it yonder willed, where there is power
We don't get nearer or further or closer
the nature of the place shoots forth, I ’d say
When i cross them smokey mountains. i'll be countin' every mile,

And that one: “O my son, be not displeased
Said the little paper boy, there on the street
if e’er thou see again the lovely plain,
The things you didn't calculate

in that I answered him in this strain only:
Lord I've tried and I've tried
takes from the very place in which I sinned
There just ain't nobody knows what I go through

according as my Escort had informed me;
There's no room in my heart for the blues
that in revenge dost deal such blows as these!
And if it all were true

for she makes both my veins and pulses tremble!
And then I jumped in the river, but the doggone river was dry
I, who now have thee go, am Beatrice;
And that's the only thing that counts

past all resistance by the minds of men;
Yipsy-doodle, (Rootie Tootie)
thou dive, but o’er the pitch shall beat my wings;
When tears come down

with one half of their bodies towered up
There's nothin' as sweet as my baby
he claws the spirits, flays and quarters them.
Once he was fair and once he was young

Canto VII
and in a file, between it and the bank,
Where a living death is all that's left for men with broken hearts
to whom, thereafter, if thou wouldst ascend,
That the saints have travelled on

that most men from his secrets I withheld;
And live with Christ ever more.
up to the river I abstained from speech.
Well, I went upon the mountain - I looked down in the sea

on burning paper which is not yet black,
You know I miss you, now that you're gone
bidding thee lick the mirror of Narcissus.
but a tear came and he whispered, "I want my parents too".

God called dad to go
If to know who I am concern thee so,
Long is the road that leads you

by twitching more than all the rest, his mates,
Rock my cradle once again.

We'll go Honky Tonkin' 'round this town.

This we ascended with the greatest ease,
Each night when the pale moon is shining

They nailed his hands there on the cross

To spend eternity

Soon I'll cross that dark river
Such as the Carisenda seems, when viewed
On an outcast, soon no one will save

although this trench goes round eleven miles,
I'm leaving now
The cities of Lamone and Santerno
for water... cool, clear water.

I've sent your saddle home.
by reason of the distance, and so high
Someone has fell by the way

On the banks of the old Pontchartrain.
but said, in opposition to the rest:
No matter how I struggle and strive

Canto VIII
I pocketed up there, and here myself.
I gave up my friends, I left my home
with both its middle feet it clasped his paunch,
Cry, oh, lord.

my Teacher said, “and see if thou perceive him.
No matter how I struggle and strive
I did not die, nor yet remained alive;
The silence of a falling star

o’er which it spreads, and, making it a marsh,
How come you treat me like a worn out shoe
See Farinata who has risen there;
Way up in heaven above

There all my fears and tears were lost
As he who by the bears avenged himself,
HOW CAN YOU REFUSE HIM NOW, HOW CAN YOU REFUSE HIM NOW,

And late in the evening

it said to me, “recall me, if thou canst;
When the sun was low
When Cerberus, the mighty worm, perceived us,
You said that you no longer loved me

by reason of our speech and of our mind,
Faded love and winter roses always bloom in memory

The congregation's waitin' for the preacher

even such a structure seemed I now to see;
And i don't feel too sure
this mass of rock had not yet fallen down.
Then the Angel's chief musicians teach that little boy a song

be this a witness undeceiving all!
Get the supper on the table
for in the third great trench your station is!
I prayed in my heart I would never be found

it seemed as if their nimble legs were wings.
That the old-time religion was real

All these years how I've loved you

You never would admit you were mis-tak-en

But now, lest thou enjoy this sight of me,
We'll go and lose them blues
And he to me: “The honorable fame,

O’er those dead bones of hers they built a town;
The bees got mad - and they left the hive
and said: “Off yonder, thou malicious bird!
Baby, rock, rock on down the line

I'll be locked here in this cell

Now I went down to the bank this morning,

And that's all she wrote, Dear John,

A neighbor was passing my garden one time
“but what I died for doth not bring me here.
She's sweeter than wine and brother she's mine

Through me one goes into the town of woe,
Enchantment strange as the blue up above

Gentlemen of the jury the judge's speech began

he led me in among the hidden things.
She changed the lock on my front door

By the singin' waterfall
and in proportion to it were his other bones;
Calling for you (my brother) don't turn away (from Jesus)

And he: “Thou knowest that the place is round,
Son of a gun we'll have big fun on the bayou

All I do is sit and cry

Democritus, who thinks the world chance-born,
It's hard to know another's lips will kiss you
even by the God it was not thine to know,
Some people struggle for riches

whose means are small for taking in so much.
Just another guy on the lost highway
and though a long way thou hast gone already,
And He gave His life completely to bring a better day

and in whose walls still others must be locked,
Never on this earth to meet no more.
But she is blest, and gives no heed to that;
He likes everything from a soup to hay

from one of those ark-tombs; hence I, in fear,
All my dreams have died and vanished

Canto XI
Teacher, said I on rising, “talk to me
Both footsore and weary I rested awhile
And were it not for this, that I am still

Nor far this side of where I fell asleep

Darlin' if our romance ends let us be the best of friends

AND WHEN YA JUST ABOUT TO DOSE...FLY TROUBLE
Thou hast with such desire disposed my heart

Now I know I'll never find another sweetheart

You don't dress up in satin,

Someone has fell by the way

And you cheated on me from the start.

We're getting closer to the grave each day

Just listen to the whistle, it'll thrill you one and all,

That I should be ashamed to take you 'round

And with his arms he then embraced my neck,

Although this cursèd folk shall nevermore
Just stay close to Jesus and journey in His light

On my return to consciousness, which closed
Oh, the woman on our party line's the nosiest thing
This is Megaera here upon the left;
Where the soul........never dies.

Shake it on over (move it on over)

It offers you temptation
right in my Master’s face, who stayed outside,
Now we'll forever be apart

On coming up to us, they watched me long
"So please buy a paper from me

If you go to the city then you will find me there

unless the features which thou hast are false,
Now I know I'll never find another sweetheart

Too many broken vows and promises

He is much further on, whom thou wouldst see,
The little paper boy who died in the snow

Till we dance to the waltz of the wind

Canto XIII

You thought she'd care for you and so you acted smart
As the Sicilian bull (which bellowed first
That dreams will soon come true

Where the cotton grows and the suwanee flows,

But your wife has done been in,

In a little country village
and if, of these, one showed a limb pierced through,
You have no right to be the judge to criticize and condemn

See how he makes a bosom of his shoulders;
I'VE WALKED THE FLOOR 'TILL I'VE WORE OUT MY SHOES,

When we were where it hollows out below,
Then i know what you're dreamin' of

Now I ain't just talkin' to hear myself cause I've been down that road before

No need for you to set alone,

I'm like a weepin-willow, while we're apart

Such a beautiful dream

Canto XIV
Thereat the common back was broken up,
You don't wear diamond rings,
Ere now have I seen cavalry break camp,
In this world of grief and sorrow

When once its water gathers head to run,
So this world would not be lost

And he to me: “Return thou to thy science,
It's that Pan American on her way to New Or-leans.
Why dost thou lodge such baseness in thy heart,
I picked her up in a pickup truck

“Look at that great man there, who, as he comes,
(So) never again will I knock on your door
and he that lives without attaining it,
And see her love turn into sympathy

from off his back, but brought me to the hole
Run along run along don't you pester me further
through all that day, or through the following night,
every day and every night

So I'll say goodbye dear till tomorrow
Even as at Arles, where marshy turns the Rhone,
So why should we try anymore

Oh! Lord his burdens are greater than mine.
a sinner he was crushing with his teeth,
Oh heavenly Father, help me understand

that for thy sake he left the common herd?
And from way out in the darkness, see that headlight gleam
they then made off with those his suffering limbs.
Yes, his burdens are greater than mine.

His head is formed of finest gold, his arms
He begged for the crumbs from the rich man to eat
to feel how much whoever passes weighs.
And drive your buggy back to town

it harmed thee not, when in the dark wood’s depths.
Darling let's turn back my years and go back to yesterday
“Ye that are pressing thus your breasts together,
Let Jesus lead you home

Gently rocked my baby cradle
I stopped, and two I saw, whose faces showed
How come you treat me like a worn out shoe

Oh, please understand.

The log train is silent
Night was already seeing all the stars

And then I heard her whisper

We've known so much of happiness we've had our cup of joy
I gathered up the scattered twigs and leaves,
And out in the darkness the whippoorwills cry.

O ye in whom intelligence is sound,
Let's honky tonk all night
Go on now, since we two have but one will;
I went to the country - just the other day

O blind cupidity, O foolish wrath,

There all my fears and tears were lost

The time now ain't long; when the Saviour will come

That showed thru the darkest of nights.
A longer stairway must be climbed; ’t is not

And then he said: “It now is time for us

Deidamìa, dead, still mourns Achilles;
And I'm lo-o-onesome

If tomorrow never comes and the sun don't ever shine

The many people and unheard-of wounds
Where will you live after death

Oh, how dismayed that Curio seemed to me,
So I don't care if tomorrow never comes.
All tongues would certainly fall short of it,
When your soul is weary and it seems you've lost your way

so likewise Geryon set us down below,
Someone has fell by the way

And i know i'll not be lonesome,

And ever without resting was the dance

That's just a picture from life's other side

Where all is joy, peace and love

All I do is sit and sigh, oh Lord

from circle unto circle down through Hell;
Are you walkin and a-talkin with the lord?

whence, had there been more light, the next ravine
Those Broadway roses and prevalent sounds at too many parties and too many pals

I heard the angels singing songs of peace and rest

which caused a trembling in the eternal air;
How He brought salvation when He made me whole
there they lament the trick, because of which
For He's coming someday, to bear your soul away

My kindly Teacher then began to say:
the boys all whistle when she walks by.
I went along in thought; and he: “Perchance
And the love light no longer shines

I remember back when you were nice and sweet
Then with a gentler mien he turned to me,
And scat right back to my pappy's farm

Now gentlemen that's my story my testimony stands

as round the former is the dismal moat;
We'll let bygones be forgotten souvenirs
both of the road and of the sympathy,
That's home sweet home to me,

there was no lamentation, saving sighs
For He's coming someday, to bear your soul away
with greater haste I therefore begged the spirit
And now we've reached the hour of parting

the frightful mouth, to which no sweeter psalms
Just a little old shanty by a railroad track,
‘A sinner of the thievish fire is this,’
I could hate you for theway I'm feelin'

o’er which it spreads, and, making it a marsh,
As though his heart would break
on this side of the angel-trumpet’s sound.
There was a time when I believed that you belonged to me

with the lament of him, and that was right,
I heard that lonesome whistle blow
to see him get a ducking in this broth,
If you're lovin' me like i'm lovin' you

a devil in his body, as did also
Lord I've tried and I've tried
so high or thick, whoe’er he may have been.
This prisoner here before you is a social enemy

A few lay on the ground upon their backs;
Sinner hear me when I say
the peasant, lacking provender, gets up,
I watched my dream world crumble like clay

Canto XXIX
then, sighing, and with weeping voice, he said:
LORD THEY'RE KILLIN' ME, I MEAN THEM LOW DOWN BLUES.
Lethe thou ’lt see, but there, outside this cave,
And let someone trouble your mind

Of those things only should one be afraid,

Drifting too far from the shore (from the shore)

when people in the great round trench I saw
You should have known you'd be alone
and who himself wrought vengeance for himself;
Rootie Tootie, she's my Friday gal.

the words of truth that she addressed to thee!
But you know you caused it all by telling lies
and with his oar beats whoso takes his ease.
We've known so much of happiness we've had our cup of joy

and me with speed, I dread the Evilclaws;
I like candy, I like cake, I like jam but goodness sake
The people in it were more numerous once,
Your cheatin' heart

without addressing me; he thus has caused me
I'll have a new home of glory eternal
the second Frederick and the Cardinal
When you and your baby have a fallin' out

trembling all over, kissed me on my mouth.
When God comes and gathers his jewels
“Why dost thou mirror thee so much on us?
You've known so long that you were wrong

a few, who by these sins polluted were.
My helper, he quit - for the lack of pay
to which I was, perhaps, too great a bane.
There sat my Saviour on his golden throne

wholly of stone, and of an iron hue,
For years I've lived without a meaning
but forced I am by thy transparent speech,
She never close her eyes to sleep till we were all in bed

Canto XLIV
both loud and faint, and smiting hands withal,
This prisoner here before you is a social enemy
adjudged thine accusation of thyself?
And deny my God and doon my soul

I can’t refuse what thou dost ask of me.
My eyes beheld a tragic story

You told me you loved me, you told me a lie

And I know, people across the United States

and he who made our ladder with his hair,
Til my body's just a shell

Faded love and winter roses yearning hearts that used to be

and that while in his body he was there.
I can't keep the tears from my eyes
Verrucchio’s former Mastif and the new,
There sat my Saviour on his golden throne

and I compare more closely with a Giant,
Thibodaux Fontaineaux the place is buzzin'
“Our path must turn aside a little now,
I'll have a new body

nor yet can one at once repent and will,
There's a road that's straight and narrow
where that vale ended which had pierced my heart
You better start to treat me nice

since in ill-doing thou excell’st thy seed?
Or stood and watched with helpless hands while the heart inside you dies
And as the usurer takes another course,
It looks to me like I been cheated out of my rib

see how he writhes, and utters not a word!
For he was the one ray of sunshine
“If they can speak within those sparks, said I,
There'll be no more sorrow

the thing’s incredibility has made me
I could say it's over now
till through a rounded opening I beheld
I'd rather be in a deep, dark grave

No path was this for one who wore a cloak,
But still you blame me for all
that noble Sage, then, who knew everything,
Not a penny in my pocket

Canto XLV

Just a kid actin' smart
O rabble, that, ill-born beyond all people,
Cause I tell you right now the hide's gettin' sca'ce

Surely he asked for naught but ‘Follow me.’
I've been a fool about you, for way too long
“The anguish of the people here below,
Lord, I've been waitin' too long

Just remember there's a man to blame and that man might be your son
I ’d have thee swallow now my thought of her.

So heavy is my load

A trusting heart had just been broken

Oh don't you know that Jesus died to wash your sins away

Just like she used to do

Won't you sometimes think of me

Wedding bells are ringing in the chapel

Well I heard the dishes crashin',

Then said my Leader: “He ’ll not wake again
These blues have got me cryin'

And my Ma-in-law just moved in to stay

To give you a heart true and real

Moon in all your splendor knows only my heart

She was her daddy's only daughter
But who art thou, that musest on the crag,
With a welcome on the door

There is no end, I can't pretend

And as I watched, I cried in sorrow

Baby, it's time for me to rearrange

A song of old San Antone

Ev'rybody's lonesome for somebody else

You are on my lonely mind.

When I get to Glory, I'm gonna sing, sing, sing

Ev'rybody's dreamin' about somebody else

And there's trouble in your soul

Hows about keepin' steady company?

Well shut my mouth, i'm a'headin' south, on the dixie cannon-ball

That's home sweet home to me,

But that's all done, I've changed my mind

So I can get me somethin' to eat

You better keep it on your mind (all the time)
Her eyes were shining brighter than a star,
Sneak it on over (move it on over)

And now I ain't gonna love you anymore.

Alas, what wounds I saw upon their limbs,

My shirts they came up wrinkled,

While downward I was leaning still intent,
Deep within my heart lies a melody
Then more than ever yet did I fear death,
The snow falls 'round my window

“Have pity on me, I cried out to him,
She leaves Cincinnati headin' down that Dixie line

Oh you're the one that was unfair,

But they'll never never take her love from me.

As though his heart would break

I heard one say to me: “Look where thou walkest!
Your memory is chained to me

And once she told me when you're grown to women and to men

On my return to consciousness, which closed
Down the aisle with someone else you're walking

Justice inspired my high exalted Maker;
