      Tom Waits - Don't Go Into That Barn Música y Letra

      Don't go into that barn, yea [2x]
      
      Black cellophane sky at midnite
      Big blue moon with three gold rings
      I called Champion to the window
      And I pointed up above the trees
      That's where I heard my name in a scream
      Coming from the woods, out there
      I let my dog run off the chain
      I locked my door real good with a chair
      
      Don't go into that barn, yea [2x]
      
      Everett Lee broke loose again
      Its worse than the time before
      Cause he's high on potato and tulip wine
      Fermented in the muddy rain of course
      A drunken wail a drunk train
      Blew through the birdless trees
      Oh, you're alone alright
      Your alone alright
      How did I know [2x]
      
      Don't go into that barn, yea [2x]
      
      An old black tree
      Scratching up the sky
      With boney, claw like fingers
      A rusty black rake
      Digging up the turnips
      Of a muddy cold grey day
      Shiny tooth talons
      Coiled for grabbing a stranger
      Happening by
      And the day when home early
      And the sun sank down into
      The much of a deep dead sky
      
      Don't go into that barn, yea [2x]
      
      Bank since Saginaw Calinda was born
      It's been cotton, soybeans, tobacco and corn
      Behind the porticoed house of a
      Long dead farm
      They found the falling down timbers
      Of a spooky old barn
      Out there like a slave ship
      Upside down
      Wrecked beneath the waves of a rain
      When the river is low
      They find old bones and
      When they plow they always
      Dig up chains
      
      Don't go into that barn, yea [2x]
      
      Did you bury your fire?
      Yes sir
      Did you cover your tracks?
      Yes sir
      Did you bring your knife?
      Yes sir
      Did they see your face?
      No sir
      Did the Mom see you?
      No sir
      DId you go cross the river?
      Yes sir
      Did you fix your rake?
      Yes sir
      Did you stay down wind?
      Yes sir
      Did you hide your gun?
      Yes sir
      Did you smuggle your rum?
      Yes sir
      How did I know [3x]
      
      Don't go into that barn, yea [2x]
      Don't forget that I warned you
      Don't go into that barn, yea [3x]
      No shirt no coat
      Put me on a flat boat
      Dover, down to Covington
      Covington to Louisville
      Louisville to Henderson
      Henderson to Smithland
      Smithland to Memphis
      Down to Vicksburg to
      Natchez put me on a
      Flat boat Dover Dam
      To Covington, Covington to
      Louisville, Louisville to
      Henderson...
