lyrics

(Inspired by the book and film documentary "Wisconsin Death Trip")

There’s two feet of snow
Outside of Black River
And Henry’s layin’ on the tracks again

He’s waitin’ on the train
To take him away
Oh, to feel its breath on his face

The last time he saw her
She held a gun and her bible
Trying to keep the devil at bay

Her name was Marina
And they’ll never find her body
Her bare footprints stopped dead in the snow

The devil took her is all he’d say
I saw them in the full moon and gave chase
The devil’s voice held me still
I heard him from the hill
If I can’t have you no one will

The train comes to a stop
Outside of Black River
Henry opens his eyes and cries

They pull him to his feet
And drag him away
And the devil watches from the train
The devil smiles from the train…
