January's always bitter But, Lord, this one beats all The wind ain't quit for weeks now And the drifts are ten feet tall I been all night drivin' heifers Closer in to lower ground Then I spent the mornin' thinkin' About the ones the wolves pulled down
Charlie Barton and his family Stopped today to say goodbye He said the bank was takin' over The last few years were just too dry And I promised that I'd visit When they found a place in town Then I spent a long time thinkin' About the ones the wolves pulled down
Lord, please shine, a light of hope On those of us who fall behind And when we stumble in the snow Could you help us up, while there's still time?
Well, I don't mean to be complainin', Lord You've always seen me through And I know you got your reasons For each and every thing you do But tonight outside my window There's a lonesome mournful sound And I just can't keep from thinkin' About the ones the wolves pulled down
Oh, Lord, keep me from bein' The one the wolves pulled down

"Pink Cadillac" was a B-side for Bruce Springsteen in 1984, but after Aretha Franklin sang about pink Cadillacs on "Freeway Of Love" the following year, Natalie Cole covered the song and had a hit with it in 1988.
"Here Comes Your Man" is the closest the Pixies came to a hit in America. It was rumored to be about a drug dealer, but Black Francis says it's just a story about some hobos who travel by train and die in an earthquake.
