Dave Sharp – Long Black Night lyrics

Take the gold
Take the coal/cold
Take the heat
But leave the money
And run
Take the wrong way out
And the rain is sure to come
And the levees are broke
And the high tides rolling in
Well it's sure coming down to a case of sink or swim
In the long black night 'till the sunrise
When it's too black and dark to see the way
In the long black night between now and the morning light
Oh lay you down 'till the breaking of the day
Oh lay you down
Don't be losing no sleep
Trying to figure it out one more time
When the black dog's? Lying down it's the end of the line
Well if the tiddle? Of the shock on a bloodstained downtown street
As we loaded d going down and everybody gets beat
Down be digging them bones by the light of the qually? Moon
It's a total waste of time, it's a digging a grave too soon
And away it's too late over the great divide
For the finding of peace in the lonesome valley tonight
