WHEN I FIRST CAME TO TOWN

Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds

When i first came to town
all the people gathered round
they bought me drinks
lord, how they quickly changed their tune

when i first came to town
people took me round from end to end
like someone may take round a friend
o how quickly they changed their tune

suspicion and dark murmurs surround me
everywhere i go they confound me
as though the blood on my hands
is there for every citizen to see

o sweet jesus
there is no turning back
there is always one more town
a little further down the track

and from my window, across the tracks
i watch the juicers burn their fires
and in that light
their faces leer at me
how i wish they'd just let me be

when i first came to town
their favours were for free
now even the doors of the whores of this town
are closed to me

i search the mirror
and i try to see
why the people of this town
have washed their hands of me

o sweet jesus
there is no turning back
there is always one more town
a little further down the track

o lord, every god-damn turn i take
i fear the noose, i fear the stake
for there is no bone
they did not break
in all the towns i've been before

well those that sin against me are snuffed out
i know from every day that i live
god-damn the day that i was born
the night that forced me from the womb
and god-damn this town
for i am leaving now
but one day i will return
and the people of this town will surely see
just how quickly the tables turn

o sweet jesus
this really is the end
there is always one more town
a little further round the end
