lyrics

Sister went south to college, and brother hit the streets with war
I went to fight with the government, so I moved myself up north
Sister came back that summer (she said, My Lord) and taught us all about sin (won’t You save their souls?)
I remember that look on my brother’s face, asking mom for repentance

And now he’s singing Oh!

Left, heading east from mountains (take me back home!) back to OHIO (I will not go!)
Mama broke down at the border line so I took the wheel and drove
Papa cried out for money (he said, my son) but that ain’t no way to live (I’ll be home soon)
Now I can’t see his face from that middle east, laid off from that recession

And now he’s singing Oh!

GOD, can you hear me, or did my tongue just freeze?
Been walking ten miles trying to get to church
‘Cause I ain’t got nowhere else to be
ANGELS, you won’t help me, you just sing the same old notes
All the feeling in my body is dying out, but all you got to say is OH OH OH

Headed back west to mountains, and made my peace at home
Where the doors are broken down, like the people inside, but the walls are what’s standing strong
Papa has said he’s sorry, Mama, she don’t say a word
Now I’m building myself on a brand new lot, where my heart won’t be cracked and torn

It’s got me singing OH!
