      Tom Waits - Sins Of My Father Música y Letra

      God said don't give me your
      Tin horn prayers
      Don't buy roses off the street down there
      Took it all and took the dirt road home
      Dreaming of Jenny with the light brown hair
      Night is falling like a bloody axe
      Lies and rumors and the wind at my back
      Hand on the wheel gravel on the road
      Will the pawn shop sell me back what I sold
      
      I'm gonna take the sins of my father
      I'm gonna take the sins of my mother
      I"m gonna take the sins of my brother
      Down to the pond
      
      Birds cry warning from a hidden branch
      Carving out a future with a gun and an axe
      I'm way beyond the gavel and the laws of man
      Still living in the palm of the grace of your hand
      The worlds not easy the blind man said
      Turns on nothing but money and dread
      Dogs been scratching at the door all nite
      Long neck birds flying out of the moon light
      
      I'm gonna take the sins of my father
      I'm gonna take the sins of my mother
      I"m gonna take the sins of my brother
      Down to the pond
      
      Smack dab in the middle of a dirty lie
      The star spangled glitter of his one good eye
      Everybody knows that the game was rigged
      Justice wears suspenders and a powdered wig
      Dark town alleys been hiding you
      Long bell tolling is your waterloo
      Oh baby what can you do
      Does the light of god blind you
      Or lead the way home for you?
      
      I'm gonna take the sins of my father
      I'm gonna take the sins of my mother
      I"m gonna take the sins of my brother
      Down to the pond
      
      God all mighty for righteousness sake
      Humiliation of our fallen state
      Written in the book of tubold Cain
      A long black over coat will show no stain
      Feel the heat and the burn on your back
      The rip and the moan and the stretch of the rack
      All my belongings in a flour sack
      Will the place I come from
      Take me back
      
      I'm gonna take the sins of my father
      I'm gonna take the sins of my mother
      I"m gonna take the sins of my brother
      Down to the pond
      
      They'll hang me in the morning on a scaffold yea big
      To dance upon nothing to the tyborn jig
      Treats you like a puppet when your under its spell
      Oh the heart is heaven
      But the mind is hell
      Jesus of Nazareth told Mike of the weeds
      I's born at this time for a reason you see
      When I'm dead I"ll be dead a long time
      But the wines so pleasing and so sublime
      
      I'm gonna take the sins of my father
      I'm gonna take the sins of my mother
      I"m gonna take the sins of my brother
      Down to the pond
      
      Kissed my sweetheart by the chinaball tree
      Everything I done is between God and me
      Only he will judge how my time was spent
      29 days of sinning and 40 to repent
      The horse is steady but the horse is blind
      Wicked are the branches on the tree of mankind
      The roots grow upwared and the branches grow down
      Its much too late to throw the dice again I've found
      
      I'm gonna take the sins of my father
      I'm gonna take the sins of my mother
      I"m gonna take the sins of my brother
      Down to the pond
      
      I'm gonna wash them [2x]
      I'm gonna wash the sins of my Father
      I'm gonna wash the sins of my Mother
      I'm gonna wash the sins of my Brother
      Till the water runs clear [2x]
