Rattlin' Bones Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Smoke dont rise
Fuel dont burn
Sun dont shine no more
Late one night, sorrow come round
Scratching at my door
But I cut my hands
And break my back
Draggin this bag of stones
Till they bury me down, beneath the ground
With the dust and rattlin bones

[Shane] Left my home and left my love
[Kasey] Caught on a rusty nail
[Shane] Devil rose up, heavy with gold
[Kasey] My souls not for sale
[Shane] Then a holy man in a house of God
[Kasey] He offered me a book of prayer
[Shane] And when I left my home I left my love
[Both] I left my faith back there

Smoke dont rise
Fuel dont burn
Sun dont shine no more
Late one night, sorrow come round
Scratchin at my door
But I cut my hands
And break my back
Draggin this bag of stones
Till they bury me down, beneath the ground
With the dust and rattlin bones

[Shane] Shuttin my eyes and hang my head
[Kasey] Darkness makes no sound
[Shane] Climb it up, bottom there
[Kasey] Earths on the way back down
[Shane] When a sadness falls on the morning bird
[Kasey] Wonder what the day will bring
[Shane] But Im shuttin my eyes and hang my head
[Both] At least that bird can sing

Smoke dont rise
Fuel dont burn
Sun dont shine no more
Late one night, sorrow come round
Scratchin at my door
But I cut my hands
And break my back
Draggin this bag of stones
Till they bury me down, beneath the ground
With the dust and rattlin bones

Till they bury me down, beneath the ground
With the dust and rattlin bones
