recorded live at 2nd Baptist

lyrics

I was on that dark road
When Black Bell showed me light
She had swollen fingers and broken toes
From kicking in the face of the night
She pulled out a little glass bottle when we crossed that state line
She said here son, here son take this
Get the evil off your mind

She pulled me over in the middle of the woods
There's a trap on Shallow Bridge row
A rusty hinge, a bottomless basin
Waiting for the hunger to show
You won't get back no you won't get back
Till the bellies and the hearts are full
You won't get back no you won't get back
Till the bellies and the hearts are full

For the rest of my days I will make this trap my home
For the rest of my years down on Shallow Bridge row
