She reads the leaves and she leads the life
that she learned so well from the old wives
it's so strange to arrange it, you know i wouldn't change it
but hear me if you're near me, can i just rearrange it?
The watchman covers me
with his remedy
i can't see and it's hard to feel
i think his magic might be real
I can't get to you from your garden gate
you know it's always locked by the magistrate
now, he don't care why you cry, he thinks it's just a lie
to get out, i don't doubt that you'd make a try
If the good times get you through
i know the dogs won't bother you
we'll be gone in moonshine time
i've got a place they'll never find
You know i do believe in your hexagram
but can you tell me how they all knew the plan?
did you trip or slip on their gifts you know were just a con?
you knew it, why'd you do it? i've been hiding in the dawn
Now i must be on my way
i guess you really have to stay
inside the mission walls
down in modark, arkansas
