Jonah & The Whale
   ------Old Man Luedecke

Well Jonah bore the mark of Cain
His wife had thrown him out again
They’d moved the country all around
Hit the wall in Fort Mac town
When his wife said she couldn’t bear
She said “you’re moving on, I’m staying here”
She said “oh my hands are tied”
She said “oh my hands are tied”

Jonah cried: Oh Lord, I’m in the belly of the whale
When I try I still fail
It’s been a long time of nothing, this old crime of nothing
Thin dime of nothing is killing me
You’re not the one who’s hands are tied

No one sees the mark of Cain
It’s a funny feeling you can’t explain
When the boys gave Jonah wider berth

He seemed lower down than the earth
And when he begged and pleaded for another chance
The foreman took a harder stance
He said “oh my hands are tied”

Jonah cried: Oh Lord, I’m in the belly of the whale
When I try I still fail
It’s been a long time of nothing, this old crime of nothing
Thin dime of nothing is killing me
You’re not the one who’s hands are tied

With Jonah tossed out on the sea
On suicide 63
When suddenly a blinding light
Shook the car with all its’ might
Deep inside he heard a voice
Offering him a final choice
That said “let your hands be untied”
It said “let your hands be untied”

Jonah cried: Oh Lord, I’m in the belly of the whale
When I try I still fail
It’s been a long time of nothing, this old crime of nothing
Thin dime of nothing is killing me
Well I can see my hands are tied
