JERUSALEM TOMORROW Emmylou Harris Man you should have seen me way back then I could tell a tale, I could make a spin I could tell you black was white I could tell you day was night Not only that I could tell you why Back then I could really tel a lie Well I'd hire a kid to say he was lame Then I'd touch him and make him walk again Then I'd pull some magic trick I'd pretend to heal the sick I was takin' everything they had to give It wasn't all that bad a way to live Well I'm in this desert town and it's hot as hell But no one's buyin' what I got to sell I make my lame kid walk I make a dumb guy talk I'm preachin' up a storm both night and day But everyone just turns and walks away Well I can see that I'm only wasting time So I head across the road to drink some wine This old man comes up to me He says I seen you on the street You're pretty good if I do say myself But the guy that come thru here last month he was somethin' else Instead of callin' out for fire from above He just gets real quiet and talks about love And I'll tell you somethin' funny He didn't want nobody's money Now I'm not exactly sure what this all means But it's the damndest thing I swear I've ever seen Well since that time every town is the same I can't make a dime, I don't know why I came I decide I'll go and find him And find out who's behind him He has everyone convinced that he's for real Well I figure we can work us out a deal So he offers me a job and I say fine He says I'll get paid off on down the line Well I guess I'll string along Don't see how too much can go wrong As long as he pays my way I guess I'll follow We're headed for Jerusalem tomorrow
