This tune can be performed in a church setting, but it’s not just for that venue.  This song has a bluesy feel and has a slower tempo.  The performance is below.

Lyrics:

1.

Storm clouds commin’ while I salt the Earth
There’s blisters on my hands
These lines on my face lead to a place of a dry and baron land.
and a Raven is parched a top my door
but he doesn’t say a word
nothing is spoken, all has been said
nothing, but the work

Chorus

Like a hammer to my hands
Like rocks on my back
And the iron upon my feet
This bitter life I’m tastin’ and the road that was taken
One step forward, two steps back, then three

(4 measure interlude)

2.

Three score and ten, not that long ago
I was a different man.
Two roads diverged in a long, forgotten wood
And I took the third.
This once smoothed skin of a now callused heart
Has poisoned a fertile land.
I now curl up in a tall man’s bed
And my blanket is the Earth.

Chorus

Like a hammer to my hands
Like rocks on my back
And the iron upon my feet
This bitter life I’m tastin’ and the road that was taken
One step forward, two steps back, then three

(4 measure interlude)

3.

Storm clouds commin’ while I salt the Earth
There’s blisters on my hands
These lines on my face lead to a place of a dry and baron land.
and a Raven is parched a top my door
but he doesn’t say a word
nothing is spoken, all has been said
nothing, but the work

Chorus

Like a hammer to my hands
Like rocks on my back
And the iron upon my feet
This bitter life I’m tastin’ and the road that was taken
One step forward, two steps back, then three
