last hope’s gone lyrics – paul butterfield blues band

(instrumental verse x 2)

yeah, i’m gonna tell you a story, that you don’t want to hear
baby, i’m wanna tell you a story, one that you don’t want to hear
because it’s about you, and you’re losin’, baby
and the end is drawing near.

well, if you don’t understand, there’s no reason for me to stay on
yes, if you don’t understand, baby, there’s no reason for me to stay on.
and i believe in you, woman
but i can’t make a stand, so gather ’round.

(instrumental verse x 2)

yeah, your mind’s been leavin’, and your body’s stayin’ here
yeah, your mind’s been leavin’ for a long time, but your body’s stayin’ here.
and all this talkin’ i’ve been doin’, baby
there ain’t a word that you can hear.

yeah, there’s no flowers by this river, and there’s no gr*ss growin’ around
yeah, there’s no flowers by this river, and there’s no gr*ss growin’ around
yeah, there’s no water down by this river
and there’s n*body makin’ a sound.

(instrumental verse out)
