when john was young, he put the old horse down and cried
down and cried
the gun went off
his silver girl just bowed her head and died
down and died

john i'm alone in my bed
looking down the road in my head
and nothing's gonna fix the kind of trouble ahead
trouble ahead, oh ahead

john i'm alone in my skin
looking down the road where i've been
and nothing's gonna fix the kind of trouble i'm in
the trouble i'm in
oh i'm in, oh i'm in

john stood up
william laid before him flushed and still
fevered and ill
their lungs filled up
breathing in the air, ye save and kill
john thought he'd shake fate with his will

william, you've stood in my stead
no doubts, no fears to be fled
if all these years of living's just a skin that you'll shed
a skin that you'll shed, well
well, let mine be shed
i may be down, i may be down lord
lord, but i'm not dead

i may be down lord but i'm not dead
trouble, trouble up ahead
i may be down, lord, but i'm not dead

and the rain poured down
like a poison bled
and mercy crumbled
and the last breath fled
and the truth still trembles
in the morning bells
to tell the unknown story
of william evans and doctor john wells
