Rattlesnake Road

Rattlesnake dead at the side of the road
Old man kick at the snake with his toe
Come over here gotta story to say
Start out as dirt and end up that way

Find me out here at the end-a the day
Watching them fools a’roll on their way
Their faces are calm, their foreheads are cool
They’re staring at me like I’m an idiot fool

But they can’t hear it - the things that I hear
I hear the world – and it’s a sad, sad sound
Could be its sayin’ goodbye

When I was young I played with my toys
But I wandered away to follow the noise
I found this old world’s falling apart
Sounds like a snake being crushed in the heart

Betcha can hear it – this thing that I hear
Get down and listen – you’ll hear the sad, sad sound
You’ll hear it saying goodbye

Hope you can hear it – you hear what I do
Be still and listen – goodbye
