Rock Salt And Nails Recorded by J.D. Crowe Written by Bruce Phillips
G C G On the banks of the river where the willows hang down Em C G And the wild birds all warble with a low mourning sound Em C G Down in the hollow where the water runs cold C G It was there I first listened to the lies that you told
C G Now I lie on my bed and I see your sweet face Em C G The past I remember time cannot erase Em C G A letter you wrote me it was written in shame C G And I know that your conscience still echoes my name
C G Now the nights are so long Lord sorrow runs deep Em C G And nothing is worse than a night without sleep Em C G I walk out alone and look at the sky C G Too empty to say too lonesome to cry
C G If the ladies were blackbirds and the ladies were fishes Em C G I'd lie there for hours in the chilly cold marshes Em C G If the ladies were squirrels with a high bushy tail C G I'd fill up my shotgun with a rock salt and nails
