Lowside Of The Road

This song is by Tom Waits and appears on the album Mule Variations (1999).

This song has been covered by John Hammond under the title "Low Side of the Road".
I'm on a black elevator goin' down
Little Joe from Kokomo, it rattles to the ground
The dice is laughin' at the man that he throwed
Your rollin' over to the low side of the road

The moon is red and your dancin' real slow
Twenty nine miles left to go
The chain monkeys help you with your load
You're rollin' over to the low side of the road

Jezebel is naked with an axe
The prosecution tell you to relax
Your head feels like it's ready to explode
You're rollin' over, you're rollin' over

Jezebel is naked with an axe
The prosecution tell you to relax
Your head feels like it's ready to explode
You're rollin' over, you're rollin' over

The clapper has been ripped o ut of the bell
The flapper has been kicked right o ut of hell
When the horse whips the man that he rode
You're rollin' over to the low side of the road

The dog won't bite if you beat him with a bone
She's so shy when she's talkin' on the phone
The ground rises up and starts to groan
You're rollin' over to the low side of the road

Kathleen Brennan, Tom Waits
