St Louis Elegy
Mark Lanegan Lyrics


I look at the sky
I see an airplane as it flies
Is this the way they said Jesus came?
Gone through St Louis
Gone straightaway
And I hear the winter will cut you quick
If tears were liquor I'd have drunk myself sick

Woman are you home?
A house of cards, a frame of bones
Here I am earthly bound
Said hallelujah I'm going down
And the river Jordan is deep and wide
I think I see forever across on the other side

I look at the sky
I see a night bird as it flies
Over the old bent cherry trees
Shivering in a row
Down here the winter will cut you quick
These tears are liquor and I’ve drunk myself sick

And the dead of winter will cut you quick
These tears are liquor and I've drunk myself sick

I look at the sky
I see an airplane as it flies
Is this the way they said Jesus came?
Gone through st Louis
Gone straightaway
And I hear the winter will cut you quick
If tears were liquor I'd have drunk myself sick

Woman, are you home?
A house of cards, a frame of bones
Here I am earthly bound
Said hallelujah I'm going down
And the river jordan is deep and wide
I think I see forever across on the other side

I look at the sky
I see a nightbird as it flies
Over the old bent cherry trees
Shivering in a row
Down here the winter will cut you quick
These tears are liquor and I've drunk myself sick

And the dead of winter will cut you quick
These tears are liquor and I've drunk myself sick

Mark Lanegan simply doesn't know how to make bad music.

@Paul Wetzel He couldn't have picked a more fucking artist to say goodbye! Lanegan is such a badass motherfucker! An endangered animal, the real deal.

The Seattle episode of Parts Unknown will always be my favorite episode of all his shows. Strange Religion at the end of the show was the perfect song.

Mark Lanegan has slowly replaced all of my other favorite artists. I can listen to him for any mood. Thanks. Just wow.
