play Walk With the Spirits

She said she'd come home with me, she was beautiful that night
She wasn't wearing her wedding ring, how could it not be right?
Moses said on the mountain, "don't covet thy neighbor's wife"
But I was born a sinner, been sinning all my life

    As I wander through these darkened woods
    Have I no friend or guide?
    Shadows rise in the cool moonlight
    I'll walk with the spirits tonight

Her husband had money, got me fired from the mill
Couldn't find no work in town, I couldn't pay no bills
Jesus said on the mountain, "turn the other cheek"
But I ain't no holy man, and that don't work for me

    And the river might be whispering,
    "Gather your strength inside."
    Shadows rise in the cool moonlight
    I'll walk with the spirits tonight

A man's got to defend himself, especially against the strong
He's got to do what he's got to do, even if he's wrong
Moses said on the mountain, "thou shalt not kill"
But I was born a sinner, and sin I always will

    So I'll be your last companion in this god-forsaken life
    Shadows rise in the cool moonlight
    I'll walk with the spirits tonight
