we came along this road lyrics – nick cave & the bad seeds

“we came along this road”

i left by the back door
with my wife’s lover’s smoking gun
i don’t know what i was hoping for
i hit the road at a run
i was your lover
i was your man
there never was no other
i was your friend
till we came along this road
till we came along this road
till we came along this road

i ain’t sent you no letters, ma
but i’m looking quite a trip
the world spinning beneath me, ma
guns blazing at my hip
you were my lover
you were my friend
there never was no other
i hope you understand
till we came along this road
till we came along this road
till we came along this road
