Sad Susie

by

M A Heathcote

The sky is trembling black, the wind is high
But down in the low valleys
I can still hear sad Susieís cry
Cry, cry for the wind, cry, cry, for the rain
Sad Susieís got a heart like a rolling train
And itís a-chug-chug-chugging, a-chug-chug-chugging with pain.
Like a banshee sheís crying under a red harvest moon
But son sheíll fill your heart with all the miseries of doom
And if you donít know yet which way the wind blows
Sheíll rip out your heart and scent your clothes
For her hell hounds of insanity to bloody their nose
Son, sheíll railroad you through a station called hell
And boy when you look back at your own reflection
Youíll be in a fiery well
Under sad Susieís spell
So cry, cry for the wind
Cry, cry for the rain (because son you know!)
Sad Susie gotta a heart like a rolling train
And itís a-chug-chug-chugging, a-chug-chug-chugging with pain.
Like a banshee sheís crying under a red harvest moon
Sheíll fill your heart with doom
The sky is trembling black
As sad Susie treads her warpath back? Back to your door
As she begs for your good loving forever more!
With her cold heart growing ever colder
Oh cry, cry for the wind
Cry for the rain
To drive dear poor sad Susie away!
Sad Susie gotta heart like a rolling train
And itís a-chug-chug-chugging with pain.
For you; for you, my son
I know sad Susie gotta a curse
A curse for love, a curse for loving
Thatíll make any man go jealously insane or worse
But donít let her curse fall on you!
Donít be railroaded in the night with grief
By that girl you know deep-down inside just isnít right
Oh cry, cry for the wind
Cry for the rain to drive poor dear sad Susie away...
