922 – Love and Theft

- Sky full of fire, Pain pouring down
- Well the fog's so thick you can't spy the land
Well the fog's so thick that you can't even spy the land

- Well, I'm leaving in the morning, as soon as the dark clouds lift
Yes, I'm leaving in the morning, just as soon as the dark clouds lift
I'm breakin' the roof,  set fire to the place as a partin' gift

- I'm watchin' the road, I'm studyin' the dust

- Well, I'm gonna baptize you in fire so you can sin no more
I wanna establish my rule through civil war

- Well my captain he's decorated, he's well-schooled and he's skilled
My captain he's decorated, he's well-schooled and he's skilled
He's not sentimental, don't bother him at all; how many of his pals have been killed.

- Last night the wind was whispering, I was trying to make out what it was
Last night the wind was whispering something, I was trying to make out what it was

- Tryin' to bully you, strongarm you, 
Inspire you with fear
It has the opposite effect

- Judge says to the High Sheriff, I want them dead or alive

- Thunder rollin' over Clarksdale, everythin' a-lookin' blue

- The dusky light the day is losing
Orchids, poppies, black eyed susan
The earth and sky that melts with flesh and bone

- The air is thick and heavy all along the levee

- Well, I'm preaching peace and harmony
The blessings of tranquility
Yet I know when the time is right to strike
I take you 'cross the river, dear

- The clouds are turning crimson

- Well, I'm stranded in the city that never sleeps

- When I left my home the sky split open wide

- Some things are too terrible to be true,
I won't come here no more if it bothers you
There's a Southern Pacific leaving at 9:45
I'm havin' a hard time believin' some people were ever alive /will ever arrive?

- But the Pennsylvania line's in an awful mess and the Denver road is a-goin' to melt
I went to the Church house, every day I go an extra mile

- Just as sure as we're livin', just as sure as you're born
Look up, look up, seek your Maker, 'fore Gabriel blows his horn

Bob Dylan from Love and Theft, released September 11th, 2001.

I’ll say the word again, Temptation.
