lyrics

Got no expectation of Heaven.

Never had much need for any kind of wealth.

Some fool is always saying, "At least you've got your health".



I'm out here at the end of the marshlands, 

Where the stone walls battle time

And the smoke rises to meet the moon

And I empty another jug of wine.



Once you told me there's no time to lose.

So I turned my car straight for New Orleans

The quarter was a mess and I waited till dawn

For the boatman to take another passenger on.







I guess I'd be asking too much.

I guess I'd be asking too much for you to come and find me.

My touch was a little rough,

But I was only being honest.



The people in town they got their opinions,

I'm keeping mine to myself.

From up here in my turret, I can see what's coming.

The ghost of Ahab and the old whaling ships.



It tooks years to learn there's no time to win.

So I boarded the hound back to New England.

I drink my wine and wait until dawn.

For the boatman to take another passenger on.

about

Putnam Murdock Massachusetts

Every Thursday night the Centre Streeters would gather in circle in a living room and evoke every damn lost, drunk, and brokenhearted song known to man... in four part harmony of course. Each time brought me closer and closer to the point of knowing no other way of life. My bio is isn't finished, but I've been gifted with humility. Sitting in a circle, playing songs is where the real music exists. ... more
