What do you intend to do you, young man? where do you intend to go?
Will you take a trip to the deep dark south down into mexico?
If you travel with a spider in your duffle bag with you ???o
And if you get hung on a frozen stag be here for the snow.
Its often im wishin to leave myself, buy me some fancy clothes,
Get on a stretch of a winding road on my ???o.

Honey ill be ridin in a cadillac, must of took an overdose.
Quicker than lookey down a railroad track, honey wasnt even close.

If i had a little message i could leave you with id hang it on a door,
But i dont and its no use no more, dont get anymore.

Honey ill be hustlin just to make up slack, give me little hangin rope,
Thicker than a smokey in a factory stack, honey wasnt even close.

What do you intend to do young man? where do you intend to go?
Will you take a trip to the deep dark south down into mexico?

    Lyric Correctionsome lyric corrections: first couple of verses that have ???'s in them.. this is copied from the original Gary Higgins song (I don't think Ben Chasny/Six Organs changed any of the lyrics)

    If you travel with a spider in your duffle bag
    With you good weather goes
    And if you get hung on a frozen stair
    Be here for the snow, oh oh.

    It's often that I wish to leave myself
    Buy me some fancy clothes
    Get on a stretch of a winding road
    All in my canvas show, oh oh.


    also, "Quicker than lookey down a railroad track" should be "Quicker than a locy (locomotive) down a railroad track"

    and this line "But i dont and its no use no more, dont get anymore" should end with "no good anymore" instead of "don't get anymore"

    All in all a lovely dreamy song.. both the cover and the Gary Higgins original. :)
