  "Bromberg" sessions, Acme Recording, Chicago IL - 3-5.jun.1992  

Where are the men that i used to sport with?
What has become of my beautiful town? 
Wolf my own friend, even you don't know me
This must be the end, my house is tumbled down.

My land it was rich,  but i wouldn't work it
I guess i made a shrew of my wife
My duty clear, i could always find some way to shirk it
I dreamed away the best years of my life.

Seem like only this morning, i went up into the mountain
No word of warning just her usual curse
I hated the house, with all her nagging and shouting
But to be in this strange world was a thousand times worse.

Where are the men that I used to sport with?
What has become of my beautiful town? 
Wolf my own friend, even you don't know me
This must be the end, my house is tumbled down. 

He called me by name, he bought me that cheaply
He called me by name, I didn't know what to think
I watched their loud games, and oh, I drink deeply
Though no one had ever asked me to drink.

And you know that stolen liquor, it was sweeter than whiskey
Many times quicker, just to put me to sleep
That drinking with strangers can be very risky
My sleep it was long, it was twenty years deep.

Where are the men that I used to sport with?
What has become of my beautiful town? 
Wolf my own friend, even you don't know me
This must be the end, my house is tumbled down.  up
