Album: Broken Bricks (1999)
  • Outside
    My door
    Unlocked
    I'm lookin'
    At this sound
    That chime out of nowhere
    Yeah, nowhere
    Whoo
    Wheels turnin'
    Scratchin'
    And burnin'
    Yeah
    I fought guns
    Tanks
    Cannon
    Cannon
    Yeah
    Tell me who's that writin'
    John the revelator
    Tell me who's that writin'
    John the revelator
    Tell me who's that writin'
    John the revelator
    Wrote the book on the seven seas
    Christ went down on Easter mornin'
    Mary mother went down to see it
    Gotta tell my disciples to meet me in Galilee
    Who's writin'
    John the revelator
    Tell me who's that writin'
    John the revelator
    Tell me who's that writin'
    John the revelator
    Wrote the book on the seven seas
    Hey
    Whoo
    Lord above
    I command
    I've been evil
    Evil
    Yeah

  • Sean from Levittown, PaThis is actually a sample reference to a song by Blind Willie Johnson called John The Revelator. He played amazing slide guitar in the twenties. Jack White also plays with a slide.
