"Black Country" as written by Joe Bonamassa and Glenn Hughes....
It's cold on the mountain
Its cold in the wood
My life is a fountain
It's all in my blood

I go down to the river
I'll never sleep till I'm gone
Its cold on the mountain
I could not leave you alone

I am a messenger
This is my prophecy
I'm goin' back
To the Black Country

I speak for the million
From city to shire
We come from the heartland
We walk through the fire

We rise to the measure
The line in the sand
Its cold on the mountain
And this is our land

I am a messenger
This is my prophecy
I'm goin' back
To the Black Country

    General CommentThis just seems... Kind of pointless. Something about a prophet walking through the fire, coming down from the mountains through the woods, to bring his words to the "citys and shires". I don't see a message in here. But then again, a lot of the Deep purple stuff don't make any sense either... Anyone?
