Tisbury Court

I lost my baby to another brother man
I was dealing with the devil slight of hand
Everybody thought that I was paranoid
I couldn’t love her in the way that she enjoyed

Summer nights too much wine
I cried and cried ‘til I was blind
I had to let it go or lose my mind

I had a sister when I was 23
She was a friend, a friend indeed
We used to laugh and sing together
Dancing on the front line
I thought we’d never
Lose each other, I love her still
But I gave her one of my poisoned pills

I’ve got love in a bag on my back
I wanna give it a spill

But I know I ain’t got a leg to stand on
But come to Tisbury Court and I’ll stand on yours

I had a friend, a Japanese gentleman
I used to see ‘im back when I was mental then
He gave me money every night
Told him I was hungry, he knew I lied
And all along he wanted to be close
But I was in and out for another dose
I nearly broke his heart when I became a ghost

And those folks down on the lane
They took me in, they gave me somewhere to stay
They had magic, they showed it to me
Like a long lost family
But I crossed the line, I caused them pain
And now I know I’ll never ever see them again
I made my bed now I’ve got to lie in it ‘til I’m sane

But I know I ain’t got a leg to stand on
But come to Tisbury Court and I’ll stand on yours

And mother, how did it end like this?
Oh mother, you can’t make it better with a kiss

But I know I ain’t got a leg to stand on
But come to Tisbury Court and I’ll stand on yours
