"Gospel Plow" as written by and Conner/lanegan/conner/martin....
If you want to get to heaven let me tell you how
Keep your hand on the gospel plow

Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Mary had a golden chain
Every link spelled Jesus' name

Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Mary had a golden chain
Hold on
If you want to get to heaven let me tell you how
Keep your hand on the gospel plow

Waking up without you now I'm on my own
Coming down the sky burns into my soul
And I want to know that you're mine
I gotta know you're mine

Come on back tomorrow said you'll be all right
I'll never find the way now to kill the time

And I want to know what's in your mind
I gotta know you're mine

And I fell alone
And my dreams are torn

You're not at all
Not at all
Not at all
Who you say you are
Gotta know
Gotta know
Gotta know where
You're going

Waking up without you girl, I'm on my own
Coming down the sky burns into my soul
And I want to know that you're mine
I gotta know you're mine

And I fell alone
And my dreams are torn

    General CommentThis is a pretty long track, it's about 6 minutes long I think?

    It features some pretty whacked middle-eastern styled beats or something for the intro, and it continues for the first few verses,...

    but then song pulls into classic screaming trees mode,...

    The song has some pretty obvious religious references , and seems to describe the total misery the writer has, that who ever left him may mean more than salvation itself,..

    General CommentThis song is awsum, the middle eastern part is awsum. And although it is a long track it doesnt seem dragged out.

    General Commentthis song was taken from an old christian song called "Hold On," or "Gospel Plow." The Screaming Trees obviously used it for the beginning, making direct references to it ("Mary had a golden chain" refers to the line "Mary had three links of chain, every link spelled Jesus' name")
