    god said don't give me your
    tin horn prayers
    don't buy roses off the street down there
    took it all and took the dirt road home
    dreaming of jenny with the light brown hair
    night is falling like a bloody axe
    lies and rumors and the wind at my back
    hand on the wheel gravel on the road
    will the pawn shop sell me back what i sold

    i'm gonna take the sins of my father
    i'm gonna take the sins of my mother
    i"m gonna take the sins of my brother
    down to the pond

    birds cry warning from a hidden branch
    carving out a future with a gun and an axe
    i'm way beyond the gavel and the laws of man
    still living in the palm of the grace of your hand
    the worlds not easy the blind man said
    turns on nothing but money and dread
    dogs been scratching at the door all nite
    long neck birds flying out of the moon light

    i'm gonna take the sins of my father
    i'm gonna take the sins of my mother
    i"m gonna take the sins of my brother
    down to the pond

    smack dab in the middle of a dirty lie
    the star spangled glitter of his one good eye
    everybody knows that the game was rigged
    justice wears suspenders and a powdered wig
    dark town alleys been hiding you
    long bell tolling is your waterloo
    oh baby what can you do
    does the light of god blind you
    or lead the way home for you?

    i'm gonna take the sins of my father
    i'm gonna take the sins of my mother
    i"m gonna take the sins of my brother
    down to the pond

    god all mighty for righteousness sake
    humiliation of our fallen state
    written in the book of tubold cain
    a long black over coat will show no stain
    feel the heat and the burn on your back
    the rip and the moan and the stretch of the rack
    all my belongings in a flour sack
    will the place i come from
    take me back

    i'm gonna take the sins of my father
    i'm gonna take the sins of my mother
    i"m gonna take the sins of my brother
    down to the pond

    they'll hang me in the morning on a scaffold yea big
    to dance upon nothing to the tyborn jig
    treats you like a puppet when your under its spell
    oh the heart is heaven
    but the mind is hell
    jesus of nazareth told mike of the weeds
    i's born at this time for a reason you see
    when i'm dead i"ll be dead a long time
    but the wines so pleasing and so sublime

    i'm gonna take the sins of my father
    i'm gonna take the sins of my mother
    i"m gonna take the sins of my brother
    down to the pond

    kissed my sweetheart by the chinaball tree
    everything i done is between god and me
    only he will judge how my time was spent
    29 days of sinning and 40 to repent
    the horse is steady but the horse is blind
    wicked are the branches on the tree of mankind
    the roots grow upwared and the branches grow down
    its much too late to throw the dice again i've found

    i'm gonna take the sins of my father
    i'm gonna take the sins of my mother
    i"m gonna take the sins of my brother
    down to the pond

    i'm gonna wash them [2x]
    i'm gonna wash the sins of my father
    i'm gonna wash the sins of my mother
    i'm gonna wash the sins of my brother
    till the water runs clear [2x]
  • tom waits'in onun günahını da, bunun günahını da, şunu da yaz baba yaz dediği şarkısıdır.
