April the 14th Part 1 - Gillian Welch (吉莉恩·韦尔奇)

When the iceberg hit


How they must have known


That god moves on the water


Like casey jones


So I walked downtown

On my telephone


Took a lazy turn


Through the red eye zoneit


Was a five band bill


Two dollar show


Saw the van out in front


From idaho


And the girl passed out


In the backseat trashand


Never no way they'd make


Even a half a tank of gas


They looked sick and stoned

And strangely dressed


And no one showed


From the local press


But I watched them walk

Through the bottom land


And I wished I played


In a rock and roll band






It was the fourteenth day of April


Then they closed it down


With the sails and rags


And they swept up the fags


And the local rags


And threw the plastic cups


In the plastic bags

And the cooks cleaned the kitchen


With the staggers and the jags


Ruination day

The sky was red


I went back to work


And back to bed


And the iceberg brokeand the okies fled


And the great emancipator


Took a bullet in the back of the head
