Lazarus Man Lyrics

I met a young man on the skeleton coast
He was out of his feet and pale as a ghost
I asked him his name - he said Lazarus, man
I´ve comne to your country from a far away land
I can´t quite remember the last time I was on shore
Coulda been twelve years - it coulda been more
But I´ve seen tribulation and itstaggered my mind
And I just don´t remember whatI come her to find

Refrain: It´s wind on the ocean, rain on the land
Three drops of water and one grain of sand
I´ll tell you the stroy as quick as I can
I´ve got nothing by time , I´m Lazarus Man

He saide "I woke one mornin´and felt a little bit
strange
By midafternoon there was fever and pain
And later that night with a few friends at my side
I went of to sleep and then I must have died
'Cause I was stumblin´and rising so I couldn´t quite
tell
Had one foot in glory and one foot in hell
On one side the gardenand on one sidethe flame
And I thought I heard somebody call out my name
Yeah, somebody was saying "Lazarus arise!"
So I sat up and opened my eyes
You know I wanted to dance but I didn´t have room
I threw off the sheets and stepped out of the tomb"

Refrain:

Now I´ve been from nazareth to high barbary
And I realize there´s no rest for me
Ißve been out on the desert
Ißve been out on the deep
But since he bid me to rise
I ain´t been to sleep

Refrain:
