Corb Lund - The Oldest Rhythm

rate me

All the good men have gone East.

Tired of the panoply and fury of the Western beast

And now that all hostilities and prisoners of war have been released

They're teaching Anglais to the natives til the global redistributing is ceased

And all the good men have gone East.

Mark and Daniel, Jon and Paul are gone and Richard's lying heart to join the feast

And I know the oldest rhythm

Is the hustle of the goin' and gone

But I'll keep dancing

I guess I oughtta when they're gone

And I know the oldest rhythm

Is the shuffle of the goin' and gone

But I'll keep dancing

I guess I gotta

Now that they're gone

All the good men have gone East

To Try to find enlightenment or oriental concubinds atleast

And all my good friends have gone East

Leaving me behind on this frontier

And without any kind of peace

And I know the oldest rhythm

Is the hustle of the goin' and gone

But I'll keep dancing

I guess I gotta

When they're gone

And I know the oldest rhythm

Is the shuffle of the goin' and gone

But I'll keep dancing

I guess I gotta

Now that they're gone

And I'll get lonesome and lonely

For a missing brother I have known

I'll get lonesome, and lonely

Alone.

Cause it's a deeper

And a different

Kinda hurtin that a lovers long

Not as pointed

But more prooven

And just as strong

And I know the oldest rhythm

Is the hustle of the goin' and gone

But I'll keep dancing

I guess I oughtta

When they're gone

And you know the oldest rhythm

Is the shuffle of the goin' and gone

They'll keep dancing

And that's important when I'm gone.
