John Cale - Ship of Fools - a correction. (15/03/15 05:48:36)


    The Ship of Fools is coming in
    Take me off I've got to eat
    Same old stories same old thing
    Letting out and pulling in

    Mister, there's a caravan parked out back
    Restless hoping for a Christian rider
    The black book, a grappling hook
    A hangman's noose on a burnt out tree
    Guess we must be getting close to Tombstone

    The last time we had eaten
    Was when the flies were going for free
    You could count the hardships by the open doors
    But sandwiched in between
    Were the fishermen who still
    Wished they could sail from Tenessee to Arizona

    So hold on, won't be long
    The call is on the line
    Hold on, Sister's gone
    South to give the sign

    We picked up Dracula in Memphis
    It was just about the break of day
    And then hastily prayed for out souls to be saved
    There was something in the air that made us kind of weary

    By the time we got to Swansea it was getting dark
    Tumble, jungles, bugles and the prize
    The tides turned west at Amerforth
    As if they didn't know what to do
    But Garnant stood its ground and asked for more

    All the people seemed quite glad to see us
    Shaking hands and smiling like the clock
    Well we gave them all the message then
    That the Ship of Fools was in
    Make sure they get home for Christmas

    So hold on, won't be long
    The call is on the line
    So hold on, Sister's gone
    South to give the sign
