Mother of Earth Written by Jeffrey Lee Pierce

I'm going down the river of sadness
I'm going down the river of pain
In the dark, under the wires
I hear them call my name
I hear them call my name

I'm going down the river of sadness
I'm going down the river of pain
In the dark, under the wires
I hear them call my name
I hear them call my name

I gave you the key to the highway
And the key to my hotel door
Yeah, I'm tired of leaving and leaving
I can't come back no more

Oh my dark-eyed friend
I'm recalling you again
Soft voices that speak nothing
Speak nothing 'til the end

Mother of Earth
The blind they call
But yet stay behind the wall
Their sadness grows like weeds
Upon my thighs and knees
Oh Mother of Earth
The wind is hot
I tried my best, but I could not
And my eyes fade from me
In this open country
