manifesto no. 4

[chorus:]
it’s a high, lonesome summertime,
a life of tribulation, but i’ll be fine.
there’s one thing, jesus, if you don’t mind:
turn my water to wine.

oh, turn my water to wine,
the fountain of love’s like turpentine.
just one thing jesus and i’ll be fine:
turn my water to wine.

[verse:]
there’s thunder in my belly,
and lightening in my mind,
a liquor in the barrel, but the barrel run dry.

there’s a woman in the park,
makin’ love to the dark.
funny how a house can burn with just one spark.

just one spark, just one spark.

[chorus:]
and it’s a high, lonesome summertime,
a life of tribulation, but i’ll be fine.
there’s one thing, jesus, if you don’t mind:
turn my water to wine.

turn my water to wine,
the fountain of love’s like turpentine.
just one thing jesus and i’ll be fine:
turn my water to wine.

[verse:]
one note rings,
from national strings.
funny what comfort a melody brings.

my pockets is shy,
my throat is dry.
so d*mn low, i wanna be high.

i wanna be high, i wanna be high.
i wanna be high, i wanna be high.

[chorus:]
and it’s a high, lonesome summertime,
a life of tribulation, but i’ll be fine.
there’s one thing, jesus, if you don’t mind:
turn my water to wine.

turn my water to wine,
the fountain of love’s like turpentine.
just one thing jesus if you don’t mind:
turn my water to wine.
turn my water to wine.

turn my water to wine.
