written in oakland, ca
recorded before coffee one cold morning in chicago, il


well i've got messiah blues in my brain
with a red sky woman tearing through my veins
with her bareback smile and her love in chains
if she still wants to ride then i'd do it again

heave on the hammer i'm a chain gang man

shelter our dreams under covers of chrome
the six string whispers and the banjos moan
with her smooth back beat that rock and roll
kick on your cares turn over and go

heave on the hammer i'm a chain gang man

down in the delta where all the girls scream
a thousand eyes on your television screen
the father came down here and laid his hand on me
said move like this boy and really sing

heave on the hammer i'm a chain gang man
