Jon James Is Dead
J.J. Benson


I went down-down-down to the doctor for to cure what was ailin’
I was a hard-headed runaway had a broken heart, failin’
And she weighed hard-hard-hard on my back, y’all
Two bricks shy of slavin’
How I believed the whip of pain
Oh, there was nothing’ left worth savin’
And yes it’s all ‘bout fallin’ in love
Pocket rocket puffin’
The air all sucked out of the room
And I just can’t hear nothin’ but the sound of the ground that waits
Alive, and fully breathing
A mortal wound you plunged here in the breastplate
Babe, my chest is heavin’
Right here
