lyrics

As I was down in the old Devil’s Punchbowl
I met me a world-weary ghost
He said that he’d once been a doctor
A sawbones of no good repute

Sunset-colored nectarines grew
In the grove that fateful day
Her white-lace dress covered in dust
The smile long gone from her face

The doctor met a wandering girl
Who’d escaped so to live out her life
In return for her stories, he healed up her scars
And he asked if she might be his wife

The owls’ gold eyes glowed in the night
And they watched as blood soiled his coat
His bluff had been called, he'd gambled it all
Love, life, and death do us part

She had been taken, he had been dead
His practice provided no cure
So, he drank blood whiskey with the Devil
Thereafter he must here linger

I asked what became of the girl whom he loved
Smiling sadly, he shot me a wink
Then he glanced at the sun sinking into the earth
And disappeared without saying a thing
