Song 339: "Cider Road" - The Dreadnoughts

Top down, straight in
That's the way you want to win
Head down, play nice
All the way to paradise
Scraping and staggering
Until the bitter end
Oh friend, I've seen it all before
To you I implore
The only way to death
Is through the apple tree
Life is a lady's breath
Life is a mystery
Along this sacred way
We wander every day
Tehran to Tennessee
Do you want a piece of me now?

I am the Cider King
I am the Whiskey Lord
I am everything
Here we go!
Right along the Cider Road

I am the one
Walking beneath the sun
Condemned and free
For all eternity
I've watched your cities rise
And fall into the dust
In hatred, larceny and lust
Join in if you must
But you must remember me
When the moon is in the trees
When all your castles turn
To penitentiaries
Along this sacred way
We wander every day
Tehran to Tennessee
Do you want a piece of me now?

I am the Cider King
I am the Whiskey Lord
I am everything
Here we go!
Right along the Cider
Here we go!
Right along the Cider Road

Here we go!

The only way to death
Is through the apple tree
Life is a lady's breath
Life is a mystery
Along this sacred way
We wander every day
Tehran to Tennessee
Do you want a piece of me now?

I am the Cider King
I am the Whiskey Lord
I am everything
Here we go!
Right along the Cider
Here we go!
Right along the Cider
Here we go!
Right along the Cider Road
Oooh!
