The many personas of Killjoy



Oh, the hours I've spent inside the Coliseum,
Dodging lions and wastin' time.
Oh, those mighty kings of the jungle, 
I could hardly stand to see 'em,
Yes, it sure has been a long, hard climb.
Train wheels runnin' through the back of my memory,
as the daylight hours do increase
Someday, everything is gonna be smooth like a rhapsody
When I paint my masterpiece.

Ben Holland


Plays songs with guitar and harmonica. 
Lives in London south of the river. 
Stays one step ahead of his feet.

Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup











 
Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup
I got a coal‑black mare :
but Lord how that horse can run
Yes she win every race :
man you don't see how it's done

I give her three gold teeth :
I put earings in her ears
There ain't no use a‑worrying :
I do swear the stuff is here

I cut her mane :
I put streamline shoes on her feet
Ain't a horse in the country :
I do swear my horse can't beat

Say she foxtrot and pace :
and I rode that horse today
Yeah when morning comes :
she had never broke her gait

She going to the race track at midnight :
and I rode her all night long
Yeah when morning come :
she had never changed her weight

She's a coal‑black mare :
she's got long black curly mane
Well I'll follow that horse :
man in any land

Black Pony Blues Lyrics

Rolling Thunder



Locomotive Breath





In the shuffling madness
Of the locomotive breath
Runs the all time loser
Headlong to his death

Oh, he feels the piston scraping
Steam breaking on his brow

Old Charlie stole the handle
And the train, it won't stop going
No way to slow down
Oh, oh

He sees his children jumping off
At stations one by one
His woman and his best friend
In bed an' having fun

Oh, he's crawling down the corridor
On his hands and knees

Old Charlie stole the handle
And the train, it won't stop going
No way to slow down
Yeah, yeah

He hears the silence howling
And catches angels as they fall
And the all time winner
Has got him by the balls

Oh, he picks up Gideon's Bible
Open at page one

I thank God, he stole the handle
And the train, it won't stop going
No way to slow down

No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
