lyrics

Heaven's Hill

A big red sun
Down by the riverside
Just off the tracks
Where Ben McCullen died
I found a gun...

So there it was
Still gifted with two rounds
I never told no one
At least well not 'til now
Not 'til now…

It ain't no crime
When you been pushed past the line
We come and go without warning
But we could be in the land of light and joy come morning

I had a job
I had a girl
But it's more than mean
It's a cruel and wicked world
It's a cruel and wicked world
So I did what I did
And just like the whippoorwill
There's only one thing you can bring
Up here to Heaven's Hill
Up here to Heaven's Hill...

No it ain't no crime
When you been pushed past the line
We come and go without warning
But we could be in the land of light and joy come morning
Oh Peter please understand
There's more to this blood on my hands
These orphans break or get broke
And it got so dark I couldn't see any other way home
Home
Home
Home
