let's go
back to the roadshow
drink with the old crow
who cut us down

blind him
force feed and remind him
there's nothing quite strong as
the sons of the railroad line

tell me why did you go into the cold
deep in the mines of Jericho
when no diamond can save your mortal soul
tell me why did you go into the cold
deep in the mines of Jericho
when no diamond can tell you where to go

i'll grant you
loads of new stories
all these new songs
from around the world

but don't get
blinded by the dollars
or chase the white collars,
the sons of the other side

tell me why did you go into the cold
deep in the mines of Jericho
when no diamond can save your mortal soul
tell me why did you go into the cold
deep in the mines of Jericho
when no diamond can tell you where to go

so let me free
from your prison
free from your boundries
that hold me back

i'll walk now,
the road to redemption
the pathway to enter
my peace with god

tell me why did you go into the cold
deep in the mines of Jericho
when no diamond can save your mortal soul
tell me why did you go into the cold
deep in the mines of Jericho
when no diamond can tell you where to go
