Dead Man Walking movie - Fall of Troy lyrics

rate me

Song by Tom Waits<br /><br>

It’s the same with men as with horses and dogs<br>

Nothing wants to die<br>

Ethel and James they killed in a game<br>

With guns too big for their hands<br>

Just off St. Charles in no man’s land<br>

And you’ll have to find your own way home, boys<br>

You’ll have to find your own way home<br>


The oldest was Troy, an eighteen year old boy<br>

Shot dead in March in a robbery<br>

His brothers started out to hell and to ruin<br>

Troy’s killer was never caught, they say<br>

Young Nick, he just went bad that day<br>

Now he’ll have to find his own way home, boys<br>

He’ll have to find his own way home<br>


Why cook dinner, why make my bed<br>

Why come home at all?<br>

Out the door and through the woods<br>

There’s a world where nothing grows<br>


It’s hard to say grace and to sit in the place<br>

Of someone missing at the table<br>

Mom’s hair sprayed tight and her face in her hands<br>

Watching TV for answers to me<br>

After all she’s only human<br>

And she’s trying to find her own way home, boys<br>

She’s trying to find her own way home<br>


My legs ache, my heart is sore<br>

The well is full of pennies<br>
