Gone Like Rain (Morello Tom)

With downcast eyes the multitudes set as the cattle cars pulled along the rusty tracks one raised his hand in the fading light said excuse me sir this doesn't seem right and now he's gone like whispers gone like rain gone like the faithful while the faithless remain gone like the stone the builder refused gone and overdue There's a river in Texas with a strong undertow no one crosses it to freedom, no one pans for gold its waters are clear but its waters are cold its current is swift and no one knows where it goes it's just gone like whispers gone like rain gone like the faithful while the faithless remain gone like the stone the builder refused gone and overdue gone and overdue [harmonica solo] When a cool desert don't appear on no map coyote's scream rips the night in half he hears the devil coming footsteps on the path so he chews off his own leg to get out of the trap and he's gone like whispers gone like rain gone like the faithful while the faithless remain gone like the stone the builder refused gone and overdue gone and overdue
