her people come from Nineveh
his people come from Rural Shade
they met in the tent of the Travelling Nazarene
she took his big hand in hers
she led him from the tent to the piny woods
they both sixteen

a few months later they got married
a few more months RoseofSharon got born
while he was out he's cutting pulp
a logging chain whipped
he never walked again
it was an accidental thing

so he drank when they had money
she worked as a serving girl at a rich folk's house
in town
RoseofSharon grew up
she's cutting pictures out of magazines
of houses big and clean

RoseofSharon she run away
with a boy selling bibles
they crossed the line to Shreveport
turned sixteen
calls her mother from a payphone
laundrymat in Natches
'It's not exactly what I dreamed'

Palestine Palestine
oh Palestine
we got Satan on the run
shouts the Nazarene

Palestine Palestine
yeah Palestine
we got Satan on the run
shouts the Nazarene
