lirik lagu twang on a wire – kate campbell


61 gibson, tobacco sunburst
carved my name on the back
and a bible verse
it was one piece of wood
that sure started a fire
all i wanted to do
was tw-ng on a wire

well i went to school
and then went to work
but it all seemed to me
like shoveling dirt
with each p-ssing day
i sank deeper in the mire
i had to find me a way
to tw-ng on a wire

there have been times
when i was so down
mothers and lovers
and preachers came ’round
no one could cheer me
not one could inspire
there’s no consolation
like a tw-ng on a wire

angels with flat-tops
they pick and they sing
playing those songs
that pull on heart strings
as long as i live
i’ll never tire
of hearing the sound
of a tw-ng on a wire

when it’s all said and done
and i’m laid in the ground
would you have someone play
that sweet wildwood flower
you could sing me on over
with a big gospel choir
but all that’s required
is a tw-ng on a wire
