      MORNING, MORNING
       
       
      somebody must have made my bail

      or called my name

      when old man death was walking round my room

      morning, morning

      I came through the tourmaline night

      with the Christmas decoration moon

      (hung there slightly skewed

      by a careless Johnny Barley)

      somebody must of called my name

      to set me free

      from those cold nocturnal chains

      morning, morning

      the tocsin and toxins

      that drove me through the night

      are purged

      morning, morning

      I wake and break my fast and chains

      somebody must have called my name

      gone my bail, walked my blues
