Slammin' & Bangin' (last Thoughts On Woody Guthrie)

When yer head gets twisted and yer mind grows numb

When you think you're too old, too young, too smart or

too dumb

When yer laggin' behind an' losin' yer pace

In a slow-motion crawl of life's busy race

No matter what yer doing if you start givin' up

If the wine don't come to the top of yer cup

If the wind's got you sideways with with one hand

holdin' on

And the other starts slipping and the feeling is gone

And yer train engine fire needs a new spark to catch it

And the wood's easy findin' but yer lazy to fetch it

And lonesome comes up as down goes the day

And tomorrow's mornin' seems so far away

And you feel the reins from yer pony are slippin'

And yer rope is a-slidin' 'cause yer hands are a-

drippin'

And you start walkin' backwards though you know its

wrong

And yer sidewalk starts curlin' and the street gets too

long

And yer sun-decked desert and evergreen valleys

Turn to broken down slums and trash-can alleys

And yer sky cries water and yer drain pipe's a-pourin'

And the lightnin's a-flashing and the thunder's a-

crashin'

And the windows are rattlin' and breakin'

and the roof tops a-shakin'

And yer whole world's

a-slammin' and bangin'

And yer minutes of sun turn to hours of storm

And you ask your self "why did they tell me when I was

born"

And you start gettin' chills and yer jumping from sweat

And you're lookin' for somethin' you ain't quite found

yet

And yer knee-deep in the dark water with yer hands in

the air

And the whole world's a-watchin' with a window peek

stare

And yer good gal leaves and she's long gone a-flying

And yer heart feels sick like fish when they're fryin'

And yer jackhammer falls from yer hand to yer feet

And you need it badly but it lays on the street

And yer bell's bangin' loudly but you can't hear its

beat

And your bells

And yer whole world's

a-slammin' and bangin'
