No Hat Up On My Head


for a long time I
travelled down a dusty road
with no shoes on my feet
and no hat upon my head
and i wondered why
i had to carry such a load
through the cold and the heat
and no hat upon my head
so i gazed at the sky
where the sunset glowed
with no shoes on my feet
and this is what i said

i sure hate to die
travelling down a dusty road
but i've only seen defeat
and my heart is full of dread

for a long time i
knew i'd reap what i sowed
but never thought i would be beat
in the land of the dead

and i wondered why
so i gazed at the sky
i sure hate to die
in the land of the dead
with my heart full of dread
and no hat upon my head

21 august 1987
found this this morning going through some old stuff and was amused
there's a tune as well, very somber, but not slow really
