Big Boy cried this tale
New bent nail holding on
Forsaken song
In his boots
Firewater womb

Big Boy walked that way
Some kids took their aim
Calling him names
Made a full grown rage
In his boots
Firewater fumes

His heavy heart wonders
But Heaven only knows
Ohwo
Why he can’t shake the firewater
From his bones

Big Boy in a prison cell
A deep dark hole
Can’t weep his sorrow
Heart in his throat
In his boots
The firewater room

Big Boy’s done his time
Bleeding all inside
From the weight of
The shudder and shame
The worry and wane
In his boots
The firewater blues

His heavy heart wonders
But Heaven only knows
Ohwo
Why he can’t shake the firewater
From his bones

Can’t walk the last mile
Gate’s open wide
White coats can’t save him
Winds dying out
In his boots
To the firewater tune

And heavy hearted lovers
Are making life stoned
Ohwo
Why they can’t shake the firewater
From his bones
