WaterboysHow Many Songs Till I Get Home

I've got a hard road ahead of me And a battlefield behind I've got a heavy load on top of me That's mine and only mine I can't go running to nobody Solicitating help I gotta walk a mile and then a mile And walk it by myself Ain't no ride on offer Ain't no easy way Damn these blues, grease my shoes, Speed me on my way Lord, how many songs till I get home ? How many songs till I get home ? How many rights ? How many wrongs ? How many songs till I get home ? Distance unidentified...destiny unknown How many songs till I get home ? The devil came to dinner Said he'd been shipwrecked Spit was forming at his mouth And running down his neck He beat upon the table He piped upon a pipe He cursed in broken english Then he tried to pick a fight He summoned me to side with him Said I had no choice When he left I smelt his breath And I recognized his voice Lord, how many songs till I get home ? How many songs till I get home ? How many rights ? How many wrongs ? How many songs till I get home ? Distance unidentified...destiny unknown How many songs till I get home ? From the High King of Glory To the lone abandoned child Everybody has a story Everybody walks a mile I've told you mine already I'll tell you just one more About a son of ancient Israel You heard his name before He was suckled in a stable Nailed upon a cross Before he died he gave a cry And this is what it was... Lord, how many songs till I get home ? How many songs till I get home ? How many rights ? How many wrongs ? How many songs till I get home ? Distance unidentified...destiny unknown How many songs till I get home ?
