I roll like thunder,
Go, like dynamite,
All flesh and bone, I come,
Old death 'long by my side,
In from the storm,
This scornful breath about my tongue,
O' the thing I done

I took my chances,
Took what chance I got,
Lord know, my hands is tied,
This all-bindin', ancient, blood,
There flood my mind, images..
Blindin' as the sun,
O' the thing I done

Can't tell my future,
I can't tell my past,
It's only eludin' fate,
That make my journey's task,
That weigh down upon me,
Out on the run,
O' the thing I done

The band are playin',
Bathed in electrical light
But I'm all at sea, away,
Under the shade o' that dark fright,
Know an' I, never had a chance, I come,
Bound to all, I done..

You hear me singin',
Know my time ain't long,
Desirous, this song I bring,
On these un-restin' bones
Long ways from home, I stumbled,
Long, since time begun..
O' the thing I done

O' the thing I done

O' the thing I done

O' the thing I done
