Like Sheep To The Shepherd

lyrics

oh no, my love has gone
away again to sing her siren song
and i'm left pluckin' the echoes out the air
hoping i'm the lone wolf who's followed her there

so come on, darlin' please
come on home, darlin' please
come over darlin', please

this winter has brittled my bones
i'm a racked out man with a ripped out soul
and lord, it's shelter i'm crawling toward
be it a fire, or a falling sword

so come on, darlin' please
come on home, darlin' please
come over darlin', please

so slow up, darlin', won't you hear my pleas
cuz these blues, oh lord, they're killing me

this long road has whittled me down
from my ivory pole to the muddy ground
and i will bury my face in shame
if you leave me for another town again

so come on, darlin' please
come on home, darlin' please
come over darlin', please

so slow up, darlin', won't you hear my pleas
cuz these blues, oh lord, they're killing me
