"The Old Plantation" as written by and Scott Mccaughey....
The old plantation has been abandoned
The love is gone yeah the love is gone
New hieroglyphics braid the columns
Kids on the M-Train baptize the lawns

Your floating jukebox stuck on "I'll get you"
So lost at sea yeah so lost at sea
You watch the rations you man the spyglass
So far from Memphis rivers from me.

But did you ever really try
To peel away the sky
Neither did I

The master bedroom its shutters hanging
It's no museum it's no museum
The fields are barren but for a bonfire
A pile of empties in the mausoleum

But did you ever really try
To peel away the sky
Neither did I

God bless the shelter so bruised and battered
God bless the days yeah god bless the days
The old plantation is like a sore now
A home for maggots but don't turn away

Don't turn away until you try
To peel away the sky

Don't turn away until you try
To peel away the sky
