Down by the lake of Mississippi
A boy was born poor and abandoned
And as he walk you could hear him yearning
For a home and he prays

And by the fields he sang for rising
All for his faith and memorizing
All of the songs his mother learned
From the lord himself

Heaven light a way for a fallen
Let me ease the pain from my mother
But he feels the deception in his head

Another day was born and rising
And on the stool the boy was trying
To earn a coin for his mother, and hoping
That freedom will lead her away

Mr. Cadillac Blood: Dear little friend
I've heard your story
Please take my hand and I'll promise
We'll find a way and we'll be fighting
For your mother, and her wings

Heaven light a way for a fallen
Let me ease the pain from my mother
But he feels the deception in his head

Heaven light a way for another
Let me ease the pain for a fallen
We are on our way so much stronger
Heaven light the way for another
And he feels no deception in his head

    Tränen in den Augen. So schön. Ich liebe dieses lief einfach. Es ist einfach unbeschreiblich was da mit worten rüber gebracht wird. Einfach schön. Das Lied ist einfach wunder voll und man kann es einfach immer hören. Egal in welcher Stimmung man ist oder welchen Musik Geschmack man hat. Ich bin normalerweise jemand der gerne harte und laute Musik hört (death metal, speead und trashmetal, etc.) aber Volbeat ist ein muss. Wenn man die nicht mag dann stumm etwas nicht. Das Lied ist einfach göttlich.
