Early Roman Kings Lyrics

Bob Dylan – Early Roman Kings Lyrics

from album: Tempest (2012)
All the early Roman kings
In their shark skin suits
Bow ties and buttons
High top boots

Drivin' the spikes in *
Blazin' the rails
Nailed in their coffins
Top hats and tails
Fly away over
Fly away flap your wings
Fly by night

Like the early Roman kings
They're peddlers and they're meddlers
They buy and they sell
They destroyed your city
They'll destroy you as well
They're lecherous and treacherous
A-Hell bent for leather *
Each of 'em bigger
Than all men put together
Sluggers and muggers
Wearin fancy gold rings
All the women going crazy
For the early Roman kings
