Walkabouts – Jack Candy lyrics

Jack Candy was as old as my father
But still I took a likin' to him
He said: "You will be somebody's treasure,
But no one has discovered you yet. "

Jack Candy lived on Sky Valley Road
And that's where he did business I guess
Some say he sold a suitcase of cocaine
But he never showed me any of that

This is a story that I've prayed to tell X2
About the day they drove him from this town
About the day I lost: Jack Candy

I was walkin' up to Jack Candy's trailer
When he shouted that I('d) better head home
The curtains closed as he went back inside
And I trembled 'cause he wasn't alone

This is a story that I've prayed to tell X2
About the day they drove him from this town
About the day I lost: Jack Candy

Some say they took him out to a clearin'
And made him crawl until he confessed
Some say they hung him up by his bootstraps
Some say they let him swing in the wind

I walked along (the) Sky Valley Road
And out onto the great northern bridge
And for hours I stared into the cold
Sick and tired of denying I loved him

This is a story that I've prayed to tell X2
About the day they drove him from this town X2

I've lived a lie and I have lived it well
This is the story that I've prayed to tell
About a love and how I let him down
About the day I lost: Jack Candy
