On the Land Blues

This song is by Damien Jurado and appears on the album Visions of Us on the Land (2016).

Tried my hand as a brother
Failed as a man and a friend
I know who I was then
I know who I am now
Land it rolls into water
Fools they go and follow after
Chasing the light like a sun
Burned out before they could shine
Lord take the weight I won't need it

Salvations pain glory be
Follow me down on this road
One more hand to let go
Kindly spoke cried on your shoulder
Better a ghost than a living man
You see through I suppose
Visions of us on the land
Far out to where we were then
Gathered and stolen by storm
Waiting here till you return
