lyrics

If I was a knight full of chivalry and fight
Shimmering armour on every side
I would take you by the hand ‘cross this wild wicked land
And in this place I will make my stand

Oh Babe come on down
Oh Babe come on down
I got all my money and I got all the time
I got demons chasing me around town

Well I’m going where the horse was born
Out in the desert with the dust and the bones
And I’ll travel that trail through the wind and the hail
I’ll meet you at the dusty doors of hell

Oh Babe I’m down the tracks
Oh Babe I’m down the tracks
I’m writing you to see what you think about that
I got demons and they’re closing in fast

Found myself at the crossroad at night
One road said struggle and the other said strife
I sat down and figured which way to go
But then the wind picked up and let me know

Oh babe I’m headed to the sea
Oh babe I’m headed to the sea
There’s water as far as the eye can see
I got demons sailing after me

Oh Babe come on down
Oh Babe come on down
Got all my money and I got all the time
And I got demons chasing me around town
