Terry Callier - Lazarus Man lyrics

I met a young man on the skeleton coast
He was out of his feet and pale as a ghost
I asked him his name - he said Lazarus, man
I've comne to your country from a far away land
I can't quite remember the last time I was on shore
Coulda been twelve years - it coulda been more
But I've seen tribulation and itstaggered my mind
And I just don't remember whatI come her to find

It's wind on the ocean, rain on the land
Three drops of water and one grain of sand
I'll tell you the stroy as quick as I can
I've got nothing by time , I'm Lazarus Man

He saide "I woke one mornin'and felt a little bit strange
By midafternoon there was fever and pain
And later that night with a few friends at my side
I went of to sleep and then I must have died
'Cause I was stumblin'and rising so I couldn't quite tell
Had one foot in glory and one foot in hell
On one side the gardenand on one sidethe flame
And I thought I heard somebody call out my name
Yeah, somebody was saying "Lazarus arise!"
So I sat up and opened my eyes
You know I wanted to dance but I didn't have room
I threw off the sheets and stepped out of the tomb"

It's wind on the ocean, rain on the land
Three drops of water and one grain of sand
I'll tell you the stroy as quick as I can
I've got nothing by time , I'm Lazarus Man

Now I've been from nazareth to high barbary
And I realize there's no rest for me
Ißve been out on the desert
Ißve been out on the deep
But since he bid me to rise
I ain't been to sleep

It's wind on the ocean, rain on the land
Three drops of water and one grain of sand
I'll tell you the stroy as quick as I can
I've got nothing by time , I'm Lazarus Man
