lirik lagu joe bonamassa – dislocated boy


dislocated boy

i’ve been gone a long time
lost in the seven seas.
sail on, don’t you come back
until you learn the birds and the bees.
who will you find waiting for you,
squeeze blood in the wine.
left to call my preacher
and my very lovely wife.

[chorus 1:]
i said, hey now, knocked down, why’d you do it,
roll me like a hurricane.
all is a bust and i’m numb, like novocaine.
who done it, what’s up, you said,
sell me out why don’t you boy,
i’m alone, severely broken,
i’m a dislocated boy.

i have thought to rise my dictions
and i’ve suffocated my pride.
before you and i embarked on
one h-ll of a ride.
boy, i’ve had these blues
since i been six years old.
but tell me don’t you worry
about my very heavy load.

[chorus 2:]
and i said, knock down, drag out, bar fight,
knuckles on the floor. and there’s shattered gl-ss,
and one h-ll of a scar.
broke down and hungry, you said so.
sell me out, why don’t you boy,
i’m alone, severely broken,
i’m a dislocated boy.

all i need is my old guitar,
and i’ll play you the best d-mn blues.
heavy affections, and i hate to lose.
thirty-five years ago,
i was born on robert johnson’s.
it’s all been for you baby.
i’m gonna make it back someday.

[repeat chorus 1]

so tell me about your working cl-ss hero, baby
tell me ’bout your
mine was born in mississippi, ’round 1923.
blue collar flannel shirts
was my father’s way.
worked in a factory,
’til his dying day.

[repeat chorus 2]
