Well I woke up this morning
with the cold water
with the cold water
with the cold
Woke up this morning
with the cold water
with the cold water
with the cold

Police at the station
and they don't look friendly
Well they don't look friendly
Well they don't look friendly
Police at the station
and the don't look friendly
They don't look friendly well
they don't

Blind or crippled
Sharp or dull
I'm reading the bible
by a 40-watt bulb
What price freedom
Dirt is my rug
Well I sleep like a baby
with the snakes and the bugs

Well the stores are open
but I ain't got no money
I ain't got no money
Stores are open but I
ain't got no money
ain't got no money
Well I ain't

Found an old dog a
and he seems to like me
seems to like me
Well he seems to like me
Found an old dog and he
seems to like me
seems to like me
well he seems

See them fellows
with the cardboard signs
scrapin' up a little money
to buy a bottle of wine
Pregnat women and
the Vietnam vets I say
beggin on the freeway
Bout' as hard as it gets

Well I slept in the graveyard
it was cool and still
cool and still
it was cool and still
Slept in the graveyard
it was cool and still
cool and still and it
was cool

Slept all night in the cedar grove
I was born to ramble
born to rove
Some men are searchin' for
the holy grail
but there ain't nothin sweeter
than ridin the rails

I look 47 but I´m 24
Well they shooed me away
from here the time before
Turned their backs
and they locked their doors
I'm watchin T.V. in
the window of a furniture store

Well I woke up this morning
with the cold water
with the cold water
with the cold water
Woke up this morning
with the cold water
with the cold water
with the cold
