Black Throated Wind                          Rukind-tab     Darksaw
(Weir/Barlow)                                                Deadstein-tab

Itís bringing me down, I'm running aground,
Blind in the light of the interstate cars
Passing me by, the busses and semi's,
Plunging like stones from a slingshot on mars

But I'm here by the road, bound to the load
I picked up in ten thousand cafes and bars
Alone with the rush of the drivers who won't pick me up
The highway, the moon, the clouds, and the stars

Black throated wind, keeps on pouring in
With its words of a life where nothing is new
Ah, mother american night, I'm lost from the light
Oh, I'm drowning in you

I left St. Louis, city of blues,
In the midst of a storm I'd rather forget.
I tried to pretend it came to an end,
Cause you weren't the woman I once thought I'd met.

But I can't deny, that times have gone by
Where I never had doubts or thoughts of regret
And I was a man when all this began
Who wouldn't think twice about being there yet

Black throated wind, whispering sin
And it speaks of a life that passes like dew
It's forced me to see that you've done better by me
Better by me than I've done by you

Now what's to be found racing around.
You carry your pain wherever you go
All full of the blues and trying to lose
You ain't gonna learn what you don't wanna know

So I give you my eyes, and all of their lies
Please help them to learn as well as to see
Capture a glance, and make it dance
Of looking at you, looking at me

Black throated wind, keeps on pouring in
With its words of a lie that could almost be true
Ah, mother american night, here comes the light.
I'm turning around, that's what I'm gonna do

Going back home that's what I'm gonna do.
I'm turning around, that's what I'm gonna do.
Going back home, that's what I'm gonna do.
Cause you've done better by me than I've done by you.
I'm drowing in you.
