playThe Portentous Beginnings of Daniel the Brave

from Daniel The Brave BUY Store

the portentous beginnings of daniel the brave





i was wanderin in a desert town waitin on  a wire

met a brown hair girl preachin brimstone and fire



she drove an old pick up, she had dust on her shoes

she said “let's make for the sunrise, he's called us to move”

well i jumped up in shotgun thinkin what could i lose



i think love is the strangest creation

i could dream to know



she drove fast like a rocket, straight like a train

120 miles out she asked me my name



at a little truck stop she told them all to reach for the sky

she held up a pistol, there was a grin to her eye

she threw me a bible, said to read them a line

well i sang like a preacher while she took every dime



i think love is the strangest creation

i could dream to know



we had us a child, called him daniel the brave

we were living in a shack behind a navajo grave



i woke one morning to a rope and some words on a sheet

she was hangin and the note read "babe, i'm just countin sheep

and when i get to 100, in heaven we'll meet"



i think love is the strangest creation

i could dream to know



now me and daniel travel with the wind at our backs

sleepin out on freight beds, sharin bread from my pack



i don't now about religion but i'd like to believe

that if there's a heaven she's waiting for me

where the trucks all drive fast and the mileage is free



i think love is the strangest creation

i could dream to know
