Ain´t talkin´

As I walked out tonight in the mystic garden The wounded flowers were dangling from the vine I was passing by yon cool crystal fountain Someone hit me from behind

Ain´t talking, just walking Through this weary world of woe Heart burning, still yearning No one on earth would ever know

They say prayer has the power to heal So pray for me, mother In the human heart an evil spirit can dwell I am trying to love my neighbor and do good unto others But oh, mother, things ain´t going well

Ain´t talking, just walking I´ll burn that bridge before you can cross Heart burning, still yearning There´ll be no mercy for you once you´ve lost

Now I´m all worn down by weeping My eyes are filled with tears, my lips are dry If I catch my opponents ever sleeping I´ll just slaughter them where they lie

Ain´t talking, just walking Through the world mysterious and vague Heart burning, still yearning Walking through the cities of the plague.

Well, the whole world is filled with speculation The whole wide world which people say is round They will tear your mind away from contemplation They will jump on your misfortune when you´re down

Ain´t talking, just walking Eating hog eyed grease in a hog eyed town. Heart burning, still yearning Some day you´ll be glad to have me around.

They will crush you with wealth and power Every waking moment you could crack I´ll make the most of one last extra hour I´ll revenge my father´s death then I´ll step back

Ain´t talking, just walking Hand me down my walking cane. Heart burning, still yearning Got to get you out of my miserable brain.

All my loyal and my much-loved companions They approve of me and share my code I practice a faith that´s been long abandoned Ain´t no altars on this long and lonesome road

Ain´t talking, just walking My mule is sick, my horse is blind. Heart burning, still yearning Thinking about that girl I left behind.

Well, it´s bright in the heavens and the wheels are flying Fame and honor never seem to fade The fire gone out but the light is never dying Who says I can´t get heavenly aid?

Ain´t talking, just walking Carrying a dead man´s shield Heart burning, still yearning Walking with an ache in my heel

The suffering is unending Every nook and cranny has its tears I´m not playing, I´m not pretending I´m not nursing any superfluous fears

Ain´t talking, just walking Walking ever since the other night. Heart burning, still yearning Walking until I´m clean out of sight.

As I walked out in the mystic garden On a hot summer day, a hot summer lawn Excuse me, ma´am, I beg your pardon There´s no one here, the gardener is gone

Ain´t talking, just walking Up the road, around the bend. Heart burning, still yearning In the last outback at the world´s end.
