Rodney Crowell

"The Weight of the World"

Smoking down the track
I'm a fireball mill
Lord, coal's so black
Can't even see the
[Following?] tongues of steel
Behind, I drive the wheel
Pulls the weight of the world

Coming up the road
Another rubber tire four
They got us hooked on oil
'Til the pipeline blow
Such a shame to see
Adding World War Three
To the weight of the world
Yeah, the weight of the world

Up the top of a mountain
Well I ne'er [?]
Poisonous as the river
With the devils's own sludge
It's the American dream
But if you live downstream
Here comes the weight of the world

Ton of plastic bottles
Heading out to sea
Bound to build an island
Thanks to you and me
Another man-made pearl
For the junk [?] hell
Topped the weight of the world
Yeah, the weight of the world

I got to feed the [?]
Recompense [?]
[For the way I think I?]
Where all the money went
[Well there's the top of the pay?]
Can't get away
From the weight of the world

Look up in the sky
Is it a bird or a plane?
Taking love to [delight?]
Drove us all insane
[Since it send us reeling?]
The only thing with feeling
Is the weight of the world

First we get so numb
Then we all succ*mb
To the weight of the world
Yeah the weight of the world

(Let me get my guitar in there one more time)
