Too Long At The Fair


Joel Zoss


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 stand 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
Lord, I just can't stand it any more
Lord, I just can't stand it any more
