Down by that dirty water
I heard that mockingbird sing.
Down by the dirty water
I heard the mockingbird sing.
Told me you were leaving,
He told me everything.

Well under that red sunset
I saw you standing there.
Under that red sunset
I saw you standing there,
With your army of night horses
And your backwater stare.

Well that rooster, he's a crowing,
Tear down the whole sky.
Well that rooster, he's a crowing,
Tear down the sky.
Oh, my baby left me
And I just wanna die.

Well I cried out to your mountain,
But your mountain didn't hear.
Well I cried out to your mountain,
But your mountain didn't care.
Well I woke up in the morning
But there was no body there.

Well that fox, he's a praying
Praying through the night.
Yeah that fox, he's a praying,
Praying through the night.
Well that fox, he's a praying, brother,
Praying for some light.

The last time I touched you,
You turned away.
Well the last time I touched you,
You turned away.
And my heart was so heavy
And I could not say.

Down by that dirty water,
I heard your mockingbird sing.
Down by that dirty water,
I heard your mockingbird sing.
Told me you were leaving,
And he told me everything.
