BLACK WATER BLUES



There ain't no one around to hear you cry
No, ain't no one here to hear you cry
Just a long empty hall
With sound echoing from the wall
And it don't care if you run dry.

You're not the only one to shed a tear
You ain't the only one to shed a tear
There's a long lonely line
Of those of similar kind
And all their refrains are sincere. 

So many folks wailing and tearing their hair
Oh so many folks a-tearing their hair
When faced with the black
They try to turn back
To escape being trapped by despair.

But you can't fool with time or elude your fate
No, can't fool with time or your fate
What started with you
Will grow and accrue
Until it lands right back on your plate. 

If you want to be heard, best find another place
Yes, if you need to be heard, find another place
'Cause this dark empty room
Don't have reason to assume
That all your woes fall under grace.
