  • We've moved on six miles from where we were yesterday
    And yesterday is but a long long ways away
    So we'll camp out tonight beneath the bright starlight
    And forget rotten peaches and the places we've stayed

    I left from the dockland two years ago now
    Made my way over on the S.S. Marie
    And I've always had trouble wherever I've settled
    Rotten peaches are all that I see

    Rotten peaches rotting in the sun
    Seems I've seen that devil fruit since the world begun
    Mercy I'm a criminal, Jesus I'm the one
    Rotten peaches rotting in the sun

    There ain't no green grass in a U.S. state prison
    There is no one to hold when you're sick for your wife
    And each day out you'll pick, you'll pick rotten peaches
    You'll pick rotten peaches for the rest of your life

    Oh I've had me my fill of cocaine and pills
    For I lie in the light of the Lord
    And my home is ten thousand, ten thousand miles away
    And I guess I won't see it no more
