lyrics

John Prine

Under a bone white sky
Big nothin’ pourin’ down
And the word from on high
Says trouble’s comin’ ‘round
And you can’t run
And there’s nowhere left to hide
Better find John Prine
I gotta find John Prine

I did my time
At the stations of the double-crossed
Put up a helluva fight
Suffered a bitter loss
Now I’m so tired
No tears left to cry
Better find John Prine
I gotta find John Prine

When the devil’s nearer,
Nearer than the everlasting arms
And all God’s children are just
Prayin’ for the end of the world
We’ll crawl away
We’ll bring our broken hearts to the stereo
Let that sweet, good music wash over all our wounds

Lord knows I tried
To make a home in this town
But I can’t buy
What they’re sellin’ now
And I’m so tired
And I need a smile
I’d better find John Prine
I gotta find John Prine

I’d better find John Prine
I gotta find John Prine

These songs weave beautiful, forlorn tales in a matter of minutes, but with a defiant note of hope.” The songs on 2018's Light Years album play like postcards & snapshots written during an endless road trip around Alaska - or along every other dreamy, scenic stretch of highway anywhere... ... more
