Williams' Blood

Album: Hurricane (2008)
  • You can't save me, you can't save a wretch like me

    When she was seventeen
    She married a Preacher Man
    And she settled down
    In a little part of town
    Followed him all around
    Having little babies
    Singing in a little Church
    In a little ghost town

    She's so happy
    (I don't want to keep up I can't keep up)
    She's so happy, keeping up
    (I don't wanna keep up, keeping up with the Jones')

    Finally she told me
    Grandpa Dan travelled
    Playing on the road
    With Nat King Cole
    And he womanised
    Staying up all night
    Cruisin'up around the town
    From town to town to town

    (Let me go, ah ah Hurricane)
    (Just let me go, ah ah I'm going to care)

    Why don't you be a Jones like your Sister and your brother Noel
    When are you gonna be a Jones your just like your Dad
    God bless his soul

    I've got the William's blood in me
    I've got the William's blood in me
    I've got the William's blood in me
    (I've got the Williams' blood)
    I've got the William's blood in me
    In me, in me, in me, running though my veins
    William's blood in me

    In a room full of doves
    I'm waiting for the Angels
    Spreading my wings
    So I can fly
    (Let me fly ah ah, hurricane) (Let me go, ah ah Hurricane)
    Why don't you be a Jones like your Sister and your brother Noel
