Eisenhower Jacket
(Dan Mahoney)

Wrong side of the mornin'
Or the bottom of the sun
See your life spill over into
Things you shoulda' done.
Watchin' cigarettes and
smokin' Captain Kangaroo.
One a these days these boots are
gonna walk all over you.

Down by the green wood-side........

Went up to the slapneck
in a rusted holy grail.
They had blackstrap molasses
and tobacco there for sale.
Had a lap-top chainsaw and
I took my beer to go.
Had an Oklahoma credit card and
A pocket fulla Jackson Hole.

Down by the green wood-side........

Lifestyles of the disconnected
On the TV screen.
Livin' by the teachings of the
Sacred Steve McQueen.
See the long-stem rosies and
Their clothes are much too small.
I've heard self inflicted gun-shot wounds
And seen the mighty fall.

Down by the green wood-side.......

Outside of the city see
The columns from the fires.
See the weepin' refugees to
roadside they retire
The birdman of alcohol and
My friend-boy Willie Brown
Gonna bust-up every blues band
In this total waste of town.

Down by the green wood-side.......
