Sleep On The Stony Ground

From the album Shady Tree

I may live in a palace of stone
I may have fine things all of my own
Blessed with the finest shoes on my feet
And on my table good things to eat
Out in the woods the wild dogs howl
And you may hear the call of the owl
Calling you out to sleep on the stony ground

CH.
Sleep on the stony ground
Lay myself gladly down
Pray God I’m ready, if I should have to
Sleep on the stony ground
Sleep on the stony ground
My time will come around
When I will have to sleep on the stony ground

Down in the back streets under the stairs
The ones with the shadowy eyes live there
And I know my time is gonna come when
I’ll have to take my place among them
Out in the woods the wild dogs howl
And you may hear the call of the owl
Calling you out to sleep on the stony ground
