Sandusky
Uncle Tupelo Lyrics


If you find yourself standing
At the end of your line
Looking for a piece of something
Maybe a piece of mind
Fed up, lost, and run down
Nowhere to hold on
Tired of, take your place at the end son
We'll get to you one by one

No light ever shines
Dead end tears that dry
Maybe a waste of words and time
Never a waste of life

Every hour will be spent
Filling a quota, just getting alonghandcuffs hurt worse
When you've done nothing wrong

No thanks to the treadmill
No thanks to the grindstone
There's plenty of dissent from
These rungs below
The clockwork of destruction
Hanging low over our heads
Always a smokestack cloud
Or a slow-walking death

No light ever shines
Dead end tears that dry
Maybe a waste of words and time
Never a waste of life

No thanks to the treadmill
No thanks to the grindstone
There's plenty of dissent from
These rungs below
The clockwork of destruction
Hanging low over our heads
Always a smokestack cloud
Or a slow-walking death

No light ever shines
Dead end tears that dry
Maybe a waste of words and time
Never a waste of life

Maybe a waste of words and time
Never a waste of life

I've played this song hundreds of times and I learn something new with each listen. Despite no lyrics, this song has it all: sadness, joy, love, loss and redemption. Just beautiful.

Prismo

Yes. Beautiful. Try Leo Kottke, John Martyn, John Fahey, John Renbourn, Peter Lang, Bert Jansch, Nick Drake. Some have lyrics more than others, but these are some of the most beautiful acoustic arrangements to have ever happened in history... And it's sad that with time they will be forgotten.

bluzking

Couldn't have said it better John.

Craig Verrier

My first time listening. Its wonderful.

The Arno

I feel you man

Brian Kelly

I agree. Had the honor of growing up next to these guys. Random corn field concerts were thier thing.

Daniel Amego

This may be the only acoustic song I'll blast out of my car stereo with the windows down. It has that much breath of life to it.

Hunter Smith

First time ever hearing this artist. I love how we tend to find different music at different times in life instead of all at once. I can tell this is gonna be a big one for me. Theme music for this segment of time I'll look back on. Loving it. Whata tune, gotta hear more

TheBritomart

The only thing wrong with this song is that it should be another 3-4 minutes longer

Adi Cummings

I've seriously played this on repeat for most of the afternoon. Beautifully played x
