Too Long At The Fair


Jesus cried, wept and died
I guess he went up to Heaven
I've been downtown such a long, long time
I'll never make it home by seven
Won't you come and take me home?
I've been too long at the fair

I went down to Jason's
Walked 'til my feet were sore
I never knew what laughing was
'Til you walked out the door
Won't you come and take me home?
I've been too long at the fair
And, Lord, I just can't take it any more

You can give my soul to Abraham
Give my soul to Saul
Give my bones to Canada
My teeth, they don't hurt at all
I don't know who made the highway
I guess that's just my pride
But I have heard the prince of darkness
On his charger ride

The silver blade is gleaming
The scales are all in his hands
I swear that night is falling, don't you lose another man
Won't you come and take me home?
I've been too long at fair
And, Lord, I just can't stand it any more
And, Lord, I just can't stand it any more
