​Speakeasy

This song is by Redbone and appears on the album Already Here (1972).

Night gave way and darkness fell
On the rivers of the man in white
Love benign, from place to place
To the rhythm of the train in Hell
Holding out their hands
Though hate denied them
Piercing all the way
To where I feel

Speakeasy, unfriendly
Here in no where
So far away from home
Speakeasy, where are you now
Oh, I wish I knew, I wish I knew

Four young men, three red and brown
In the belly of a great white bird
Something lonely through the skin
In the kingdom of her majesty
Singing through my soul
I sought to touch them
Even though they took me
For a fool

Speakeasy, unfriendly
Here in no where
So far away from home
Speakeasy, where are you now
Oh, I wish I knew, I wish I knew

Murmurings in foreign tongue
When they thought I couldn't understand
Smiling through their fear for real
For the faces of the living sob
Lacking was the honesty for reason
Seing what it was
Just made me cry

Speakeasy, unfriendly
Here in no where
So far away from home
Speakeasy, where are you now
Oh, I wish I knew, I wish I knew
