Tupelo

Nick Cave and the bad seeds

Looka yonder! Looka yonder!
 Looka yonder! A big black cloud come!
 A big black cloud come!
 O comes to Tupelo. Comes to Tupelo

Yonder on the horizon
 Yonder on the horizon
 Stopped at the mighty river
 Stopped at the mighty river and
 S*cked the damn thing dry
 Tupelo-o-o, O Tupelo
 In a valley hides a town called Tupelo

Distant thunder rumble. Distant thunder rumble
 Rumble hungry like the Beast
 The Beast it cometh, cometh down
 The Beast it cometh, cometh down
 Wo wo wo-o-o
 Tupelo bound. Tupelo-o-o. Yeah Tupelo
 The Beast it cometh, Tupelo bound

Why the hen won't lay no egg



Can't get that cock to crow
 The nag is spooked and crazy
 O God help Tupelo! O God help Tupelo!
 O God help Tupelo! O God help Tupelo!

Ya can say these streets are rivers
 Ya can call these rivers streets
 Ya can tell ya self ya dreaming buddy
 But no sleep runs this deep
 No! No sleep runs this deep
 No sleep runs this deep
 Women at their windows
 Rain crashing on the pane
 Writing in the frost
 Tupelos' shame. Tupelo's shame
 O God help Tupelo! O God help Tupelo!

O go to sleep lil children
 The sandmans on his way
 O go to sleep lil children
 The sandmans in his way
 But the lil children know
 They listen to the beating of their blood
 listen to the beating of their blood
 listen to the beating of their blood
 listen to the beating of their blood
 They listen to the beating of their blood
 The sandman's mud!
 The sandman's mud!
 And the black rain come down
 the black rain come down
 the black rain come down
 Water water everywhere
 Where no bird can fly no fish can swim
 Where no bird can fly no fish can swim
 No fish can swim
 Until The King is born!
 Until The King is born!
 In Tupelo! Tupelo-o-o!
 Til The King is born in Tupelo!

In a clap-board shack with a roof of tin
 Where the rain came down and leaked within
 A young mother frozen on a concrete floor
 With a bottle and a box and a cradle of straw
 Tupelo-o-o! O Tupelo!
 With a bottle and a box and a cradle of straw

Well Saturday gives what Sunday steals
 And a child is born on his brothers heels
 Come Sunday morn the first-born dead
 In a shoebox tied with a ribbon of red
 Tupelo-o-o! Hey Tupelo!
 In a shoebox buried with a ribbon of red

O ma-ma rock you lil' one slow
 O ma-ma rock your baby
 O ma-ma rock your lil' one slow
 O God help Tupelo! O God help Tupelo!
 Mama rock your lil' one slow
 The lil one will walk on Tupelo
 The lil one will walk on Tupelo
 Black rain come down, Black rain come down
 Tupelo-o-o! Yeah Tupelo!
 And carry the burden of Tupelo
 Tupelo-o-o! O Tupelo! Yeah!
 The King will walk on Tupelo!
 Tupelo-o-o! O Tupelo!
 He carried the burden outa Tupelo!
 Tupelo-o-o! Hey Tupelo!
 You will reap just what you sow
