​Opossum Minister

This song is by Clutch and appears on the album From Beale Street To Oblivion (2007).

Original video
I met a lady down in Prathertown, two rocking chairs
She said take a seat boy and I'll treat you fair
Snake charmers cold infidels, get a running start
Pick up the pieces in the graveyard and unbury my heart

The wolf howls at midnight, the rooster at the dawn
Opossum minister where you been so long?

Montgomery Village kids, you just look like the type
You sure you want to know the mysteries? You're but a trifling height

Families in their den, staring at the box
Opossum minister, hen done killed the fox

Eyes like clouds know you stare
Count the minutes by the rocking of chairs

Prathertown unincorporated
May you stay far unrelated
To the wicked ways of Montgomery Village
There's a darkness deep in their eyes
As if the sun don't rise
Those poor afflicted people of Montgomery Village

Fake farmers, straight jezebels, you know the score
Pick up the pieces in the graveyard and leave 'em at the door

The master-plan unfolds, silent sinister
Is there any hope left Opossum Minister?

Eyes like clouds know you stare
Count the minutes by the rocking of chairs

Prathertown unincorporated
May you stay far unrelated
To the wicked ways of Montgomery Village
There's a darkness deep in their eyes
As if the sun don't rise
Those poor afflicted people of Montgomery Village

Prathertown unincorporated
May you stay far unrelated
To the wicked ways of Montgomery Village
There's a darkness deep in their eyes
As if the sun don't rise
Those poor afflicted people of Montgomery Village
