gm when i was a boy there were fifteen a-people in the world
f fifteen a-bound for dm heaven, and gm fifteen a-bound for h*ll
gm and the devil come ’round, yeah he jump on my bed
say you got to f leave me alone dm you got to gm give me some rest

but i f gather my lead, and i gm gather my spool
and i f burn it all with sulphur ’til the c7 devil did what we gm feared

and we fly through the night, under the mercury moon
so i could watch you sleep and dream a-in your room

when i was a boy, a-there were fifteen people in the world
i had a bowl for my sweetheart, and a fiddle to raise the devil from h*ll
i could play a swwet tune, or make my sweetheart laugh
i could shake a blackbird from the highest tree branch

i was half a boy, i was half a jack
jimmy? donner? was full of man, most of which is bad

you know he shot a man that had my father’s face
and he geld a woman down who had my sister’s name

when i was a boy, a-there were fifteen people in the world
and the lovers would lie in the long tall gr*ss by the railroad track
and the angels come down, they make the rails to sing
i put my ears to the tracks, and they tell me things

that a train would come with a fiery roar
reeks in heaven into h*ll into a long black trail of smoke

and the earth would shake with the escaping steam
and the train would make a thunder to drown out any scream

hmmm, hmmm
hmmm, hmmm
hmmm, hmmm
hmmm, hmmm

when i was a boy, a-there were a-fifteen people in the world
a-fifteen bound for heaven, and fifteen bound for h*ll
and the lovers would lie in a box o’ pine
and the doctor come ’round, to flick coins on their eyes

i’m a preacher man now, i’ve got my place on earth
’cause i have heard the voices from beyond this world

i’m a preacher man now, i’ve got my place in h*ll
’cause i have heard the voices no man should live to tell
’cause i have heard the voices no man should live to tell

huh-huh, huh-huh
huh-huh, huh-huh
huh-huh, huh-huh
huh-huh, huh-huh

huh-huh, huh-huh
huh-huh, huh-huh
huh-huh, huh-huh
huh-huh, huh-huh
