Bek Lyrics

Fourteen Rivers Fourteen Floods

(From the One Foot In The Grave Album)

[Written by Mississippi John Hurt]

Fourteen rivers, fourteen floods
Bend your body to the heavens above
Don't get drunk, don't get dry
Just bring your money next Saturday night

Fourteen miles on the Tinton trail
With a half-dead mule and nothing on my mind
All my life, I been talking fast
Taking all the things that I should've let pass

Throw my hat on a coffin nail
Put another brick in a fireplace
Well, I don't know that you want me
But someone got loose, back in the town
