Once a lost soul raced his shadow
Down a dark road out of town
Tried to leave himself behind him
EAST OF EDEN WEST OF MEMPHIS
Like a dagger through the heartland
Over gravel dust and glass
Storm-dark clouds and neon halos
EAST OF EDEN WEST OF MEMPHIS

This is how the story goes
Took a miracle to make him go

Stopped at midnight miles from nowhere
Got out dropped down on his knees
In the dirt he wrote her name out
EAST OF EDEN WEST OF MEMPHIS
Home was just a broken promise
No good reason to turn back
AM stations drift to static
EAST OF EDEN WEST OF MEMPHIS

The greatest story never told
Took a miracle to make him go

In a house there hangs a picture on the wall
Of them in better days before the bitter fall
Before a quiet man slipped out into the night
A disillusioned man walked out without a fight

SIHPMEM FO TSEW NEDE FO TSAE
