David Olney – Jerusalem Tomorrow lyrics

Man, you should have seen me way back then
I could tell a tale I could make it spin
I could tell you black was white
I could tell you day was night

Not only that I could tell you why
Back then I could really tell a lie
Well, I'd hire a kid to say he was lame
Then I'd touch him and I'd make him walk again

Then I'd pull some magic trick
I'd pretend to heal the sick
I was takin' everything they had to give
It wasn't all that bad a way to live

Well, I'm in this desert town and it's hot as hell
But no one's buyin' what I got to sell
I make my lame kid walk
I make a dumb guy talk

I'm preachin' up a storm both night and day
Everyone just turns and walks away
Well, I can see that I'm only wasting time
So I head across the road to drink some wine

This old man comes up to me
He says, “I seen you on the street”
You're pretty good if I do say so myself
But the guy comes through here last month
He was somethin' else

Instead of callin' down fire from above
He just gets real quiet and talks about love
And I'll tell you somethin' funny
He didn't want nobody's money

I'm not exactly sure
What this all means
But it's the damnest thing
I swear I've ever seen

Well, since that time every town is the same
I can't make a dime I don't know why I came
I decide I'll go and find him
And find out who's behind him

He has everyone convinced that he's for real
Well, I figure we can work some kind of deal
Well, he offers me a job and I say fine
He says I'll get paid off on down the line

Well, I guess I'll string along
Don't see how too much can go wrong
As long as he pays my way I guess I'll follow
We're headed for Jerusalem tomorrow
