lyrics

I am a sandy mule
Making my way
Down a canyon, who'll
Be fool enough to try
To ride a sandy mule?

I am a windy hawk
100 feet up
tie the sky in knots
Who would waste a shot
On a windy hawk?

Who?

I am a sad old drunk
Room to rented room
With a steamer trunk
Who would open up
To a sad old drunk?

I am a mule-faced whore
Doin' my turn
On a wood dance floor
Who would dance a dance
With a mule-faced whore?

Who?

I am a coiled-up snake
Never showing fear
Just for fear's sake
Who'd come face to face
With a coiled-up snake?

I am a white Dall sheep
Ledge to ledge
On a cliff so steep
Who would take a leap
With a white Dall sheep?

Who?

I'm a woodpecker with a bright red head
Knocking at the heart of something that seams dead
Who'd try to reach the heart
Of something that seams dead?

I am Jesus Christ
Came down to earth, just to pay the price
For you, and you alone
And everyone else, too

And I'd try to reach the heart
Of something that seams dead
I'd take a leap
With a white Dall sheep
Come face to face
With a coiled-up snake
I'd dance a dance
With a mule-faced whore
I'd open up
To a sad, old drunk
I'd waste a shot
On a windy hawk
And I would try to ride
A sandy mule

I'd be fool enough to try
To ride a sandy mule
