Well, I'm alive like a sprouting seed
Like the deepest roots of an ancient tree
I did not come here for the bread, no
I have come to wake the dead

They'll say tell us Jack what have you seen
Where will you go, now what does it mean
Come on boys, you got to do it right
Pray to the moon in the middle of the night

Come on Jack, what do you know, what have you seen, where will you go
Come on boys, I got to tell you true, I'm a stranger here just like you

I get high as the morning sky, this song I sing will never die
I get low as a gravel road, in a thousand tongues my story's told

I'm throwing heat like a funeral pyre, we can get along like a house on fire
This world she's cold, this world is mean, my heart is stone, my hands are clean

They'll say tell us Jack where will you go, what have you seen, what do you know
Come on boys, you got to do it right, pray to the moon in the middle of the night

Come on Jack what do you know, where have you seen, where will you go
Come on boys, I gotta tell you true, I'm a stranger here just like you

I get high as the morning sky, this song I sing will never die
I get low as a gravel road, in a thousand tongues my story's told

Watch me roll like an iron wheel, I can stack the deck when the spirits deal
Time cannot hold me in this cage, I'm cheating death, I jump the grave

They'll say tell us Jack, what have you seen, where will you go, what does it mean
Come on boys, you got to do it right
You better pray to the moon in the middle of the night

Come on Jack, where will you go, what have you seen, what do you know
Come on boys, I gotta tell you true, I'm a stranger here just like you

I get high as the morning sky, this song I sing will never die
I get low as a gravel road, in a thousand tongues my story's told
