Written by: MacKay/Vadala

'Waiting for Godot' in Appalachia with overtones of addiction.

lyrics

An angel found her drunk one dark and windless day
she said "i have been sent along to guide you one your way"
she "there is a guiding light, there is a great i am,
and I was sent to find you and help you if i can"

he asked her for a bottle a needle or a dram
a pipeful of tobacco or a firm and loving hand
she said "those are of the body that you have left behind
and you are trapped between two worlds
your passions make you blind"

She said "i have been sent here to lead you off to heaven,
to lead you to a gate of light where you may be forgiven"
He said to her "I don't believe that they will me forgive,
here in this middle kingdom determine I to live"

he asked her for a bottle a needle or a dram
a pipeful of tobacco or a firm and loving hand
she said "those are of the body that you have left behind
and you are trapped between two worlds
your passions make you blind"

She said "i have been sent here to open up your eyes
I will repeat these words to you util you realize
I will return each passing day, there is a master plan
I will return to find you and help you if I can"

and I asked her for a bottle, a needle or a dram
a pipeful of tobacco, or a firm and loving hand
but those were of the body, that I had left behind
andI was trapped between two worlds
my passions made me blind"

she said I will return each passing day, there is a master plan,
I will return to find yu to help you if i can,
I will return to find yu to help you if i can
