Spirit Ditch

Written by Mark Linkous

LYRICS
I want my records back
And that motorcycle gas tank
That I spray painted black
The owls have been talking to me
But I’m sworn to secrecy
I woke up in
A burnt out basement
Sleeping with metal hands
In a spirit ditch
The moon it rise with such
Horse laughter
It’s dragging pianos to the ocean
And if I had a home
You’d know it’d be in a slide trombone
I woke up in
A burnt out basement
Sleeping with metal hands
In a spirit ditch
I woke up in
A burnt out basement
Sleeping with metal hands
In a spirit ditch
