Rough And Rowdy Days sessions, Sunset Sound Studio LA - January/February 2020 ?
Black rider, black rider, you been livin' too hard
Been up all night, have to stay on your guard
The path that you're walkin', too narrow to walk
Every step of the way, another stumblin' block
The road that you're on, the same road that you know
Just not the same that it was a minute ago.
Black rider, black rider, you've seen it all
You've seen the great world, and you've seen the small
You fell into the fire, and you're eating the flame
Better seal up your lips if you want to stay in the game
Be reasonable mister, be honest, be fair
Let all of your earthly thoughts be of prayer.
Black rider, black rider, all dressed in black
I'm walking away, you try to make me look back
My heart is at rest, I'd like to keep it that way
I don't want to fight, at least not today
Go home to your wife, stop visitin' mine
One of these days, I'll forget to be kind.
Black rider, black rider, tell me when, tell me how
If there ever was a time then let it be now
Let me go through, open the door
My soul is distressed, my mind is at war
Don't hug me, don't flatter me, don't turn on the charm
I'll take a sword and hack off your arm.
Black rider, black rider, hold it right there
The size of your cock won't get you nowhere
I suffer in silence, I'll not make a sound
Maybe I'll take the high moral ground
Some enchanted evening, I'll sing you a song
Black rider, black rider, you've been on the job too long.
