I woke up in the morning in the black of my mind
Was cooking on a lady that I never did find
My body was a door by which she left last night
And oh, Billy; what, you gonna go now?

Well the moon did cometh and the cane did roar
I felt it in my body in the cracked old floor
There was a time I wondered if there'd ever be more
And oh, Billy; what, you gonna go now?

And at the day's end, you'll be
Just sippin' from the devil's hands for free
But your god is an ocean below

You'll be takin' it easy, takin' it slow
I'm going down the mountain where the river did flow
I'm gonna kill a man 'cause he stole my boat
Takin' it easy, takin' it slow

The rust did crumble
And the wind did blow
But the rain never came
It was a dry man's throat
I wander to the gully
To the back of my home
And oh, Billy; what, you gonna go now?

I say, hey, man, did you ever see the snow?
I never seen nothing that'll move so slow
There's a little red spider on the old window
And oh, Billy; what, you gonna go now?

And at the day's end, you'll be
Sippin' on the devil's hands for free
But your god is an ocean below
You'll be takin' it easy, takin' it slow

Takin' it slow...
