Kishi Bashi Lyrics


"Angeline"

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7…

Underneath the cotton sun
The freedom we had just begun
Sweeter than the finest rum
With my Angeline

A home with every kind of tree
Built it without anything
Life is like a peach in cream
With my Angeline

Angeline oh Angeline
She had the softest smile that I had ever seen
Sweet summer rain
I just want to be able see her again

That day I was walking down
The railroad tracks I heard the sound
The sheriff he was mighty proud
And told me I had to pay

The foreman he had to come to find
Prison folk to work the mine
The judge was there to give me time
Away from my Angeline

Angeline oh Angeline
She’s the sweetest song that I could ever sing
Feeling the pain
I just want to be able to sing to her again

Seven years until I’m free
Working off this prison fee
My fingers smell like kerosene
In a mine in Tennessee

Every day I hold my breath
Every hour I wish for death
Angeline she’s settled west
Away from Tennessee

Tennessee oh Tennessee
You have the darkest veins that I had ever seen
Deep in the mine
Angeline your memories won’t let me die

Angeline, Angeline
Angeline, Angeline
Angeline (Angeline)
Angeline (Angeline)
Angeline (Angeline)
Angeline

Angeline oh Angeline
Had the softest smile that I had ever seen
Sweet summer rain
I just want to be able to see you again
