lyrics

The Bone Daddy lifts his skull
from the piano lid to play
lemme get a whiskey and peach tea—

pistol on the table,
revolver in the holster, —
you ain’t gunna shoot me,
I’ve paid my drink fee.

Bodie Currency—
(Brown Paper's Dead Tree)

The deeds you’ve done for me,
or the ax to my family...

The rag time girl gets groovin’
to the keys played by bony phelanges—

Whiskey down,
the cards are free-
the game is cheap.

But Jimmy always carries on, ya see him?
Losin’ gals’ he pulls his gun on me—

Bodie Currency—
(No paper No tree)
The deeds you’ve done for me,
or the ax to my family.

Bodie Currency—
(No paper No tree)
The deeds you’ve done for me,
or the ax to my family.

Hey boy I know you been heckled here and there
but Bodie Currency ain't of value everywhere
When cows go dry and the Sherrif gets his lonely blues
you'll have ta move along just like the tumbleweeds do...

Well you're not the one I wanted but you'll do...
Cuz he's no good for me,
like I'm no good for you.
But you can hang around me
if you really want to
and if you want to follow me,
you're gunna follow me through the canyons
and if you want to walk with me,
you'll be walkin' through the ashes
and if you want to live with me
we're gunna live in a ghost town
—be the king and queen of Bodie.

Tumbleweed! You’re smoking buddy!
The goods I’ve grown—I’ve paid my fee!

Bodie don’t remember no Bodie don’t remember democracy,

Oh the folk here
They exchange...exchange...exchange...

Bodie Currency—
(No paper No tree)
The deeds you’ve done for me, or the ax to my family

Bodie Currency—
(No paper No tree)
The deeds you’ve done for me, or the ax to my family
