sweet mercy jesus (ain't no reason)

lyrics

i'm leaving, sister
ain't no reason to stay
said i'm leaving, sister
ain't no reason to stay

said i made my mind
carved my days in the wall
ain't no reason at all

see the birds all gone south
ain't got nothing here
swifts and swallows all sallied out of town
got nothing here

see the crows know their way down to the sea
i bet the crows, lord, they better than me
crows lord,
i bet they know they better than me

rail-ridden critters, i know you
you see the rail been riding me too
straight and narrow
belly of steel
i want to derail the rail, lord, ha, how that feel
to be rid, like they ride us now, lord, ha, how that feel

how that feel.

sweet mercy jesus
ain't no reason at all
sweet mercy jesus
ain't no reason at all

said they caught you like a moth, lord
pinned your hands up in the sky
ain't no reason why,

why, ain't no reason why
