Finishing Jubilee Street

I just finished writing Jubilee Street

I lay down on my bed and fell into a deep sleep

And when I awoke I believed

I had taken a bride called Mary Stanford

And I flew into a frenzy searching high and low

Because in my dream the girl was very young

I said hey little girl, where do you hide?

You draw lightning from the sky

All of this in her dark hair

All of this in her dark hair oh Lord

See that girl comin’ on down

See that girl comin’ on down

Last night your shadow scampered up the wall it fly

and leaped like a black spider between your legs

And cried

My children! My children!

They are lost to us

All of this in her dark hair

All of this in her dark hair oh Lord

See that girl comin’ on down

See that girl comin’ on down
