Reason And Rhyme

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jim Lauderdale

Winds may rise and storms may blow
In the Gulf of Mexico
Streets may flood or run with blood
Places you don't go

Rivers flow and dark with mud
Factory bits and other crud
To their crippled fortune goes
Lost somewhere in time

Lost somewhere, way back in time
Lost far beyond reason and rhyme
Lost somewhere, vanished in the air
All those promises we all could share

Those who guess, stand toe to toe
Trading blows with those who know
Pretending for to analyse
Which way the wind must blow

Let the liars tell their lies
They'll all come true to their surprise
While we multiply and grow
Lost somewhere in time

Lost somewhere, way back in time
Lost far beyond reason and rhyme
Lost somewhere, vanished in the air
All those promises we all could share

Grab a fast freight out of town
If those trains are still around
Otherwise go in disguise
When they hunt you down

Full fathom five, father lies
Sister weeps and mother cries
Painted clown spins round and round
Lost somewhere in time

Lost somewhere, way back in time
Lost far beyond reason and rhyme
Lost somewhere, vanished in the air
All those promises we all could share

Lost far beyond reason and rhyme
