Mark Lanegan Beggar’s Blues Lyrics

Night train, silver moon

You ask me why, I’m flyin’

To float on ashen wings

To choke on dust and feather

I learned you are a liar

It’s right we should pretend

And lie with one another

It’s right we should be twins

For I have loved no other

Look for me baby

Well I’m draggin’ lonliness

And it’s ten miles long

I thought I heard you scream baby

In the wheels of a train that crawls

When I don’t wanna go

Cause you forget me when I’m gone, whoa

Look for me baby

Whenever ice is glistening upon the glass

D’ya ever find your dream baby

Well God knows I never hear mine close enough

I watched ’em slip away like this, whoa

I’ve been from one end of this street to the other

Now I want the gifts ya promised me lover

Look for me baby

Crow fly by with sister and brother

Deadly as a kiss, a sin to one another

Look for me baby

Well I’m draggin’ lonliness and it’s ten miles long

I thought I heard you scream baby

In the wheels of a train that crawls

And I don’t wanna go

Cause you forget me when I’m gone, whoa

Night train, silver moon

You ask me why am I flyin’

To float on ashen wings

To choke on dust and feather

My dreams will go no further

Won’t calm my violent river

Oh guardian of peace

Let the beggar walk in the winter

Look for me baby

Look for me baby

Look for me baby

Look for me baby

that’s all
