I had the shit till it all got smoked I kept the promise till the vow got broke I had to drink from the lovin' cup I stood on the banks till the river rose up I saw the bride in her wedding gown I was in the house when the house burned down I may be old and I may be bent But I had the money till it all got spent I had the money till they made me pay Then I had the sense to be on my way I had to stay in the underground I was in the house when the house burned down I was in the house when the house burned down I met the man with the thorny crown I helped Him carry his cross through town I was in the house when the house burned down I was in the house when the house burned down I met the man with the thorny crown I helped Him carry his cross through town I was in the house when the house burned down I had the shit till it all got smoked I kept the promise till the vow got broke I had to drink from the lovin' cup I stood on the banks till the river rose up I saw the bride in her wedding gown I was in the house when the house burned down
