Rocking Horse

Album: Horehound (2009)
  • I drank some dirty water
    Shook evil hands
    I've done some bad things
    And they get easier to do

    Then I wrote a nasty letter
    And I sent it to the Lord
    I said don't you dare come
    And bother me no more

    I had a good friend
    I could only destroy
    And lovers I loved less
    Than anybody could afford

    Yes but this old rocking horse
    Just nods his head
    And he's gonna rock back and forth
    The way that he always did

    Baby don't you bother
    Tasting the water
    And, baby don't you bother
    Coming closer to me

    Yes when you see my eyes?
    They're half the size
    And I'm not able
    To look at you
    No, no, oh oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh,
    Oh, oh, oh oh Writer/s: ALISON MOSSHART, JACK WHITE
