Gillian Welch – Ruination Day, Part Ii lyrics
And the great barge sank.
And the Okies fled.
And the great emancipater
Took a bullet in the head.

In the head...
Took a bullet in the back of the head.

It was not December.
Was not in May.
Was the 14th of April.
That is ruination day.

That's the day...
The day that is ruination day.

They were one.
They were two.
They were three.
They were four.
They were five hundred miles from their home.

From their home...
They were five hundred miles from their home.

When the iceberg hit
Well they must have known
That God moves on the water Casey Jones.

Casey Jones...
God moves on the water Casey Jones.
