Iron & Wine - Me And Lazarus Lyrics

Me and Lazarus, we shovel all the ashes out
Black bare linens blowing 'round
Back and forth and up and down
oh oh woah, guess I had nowhere else to go

Me and Lazarus kept bailing on the riverboat
Floating by the choir rose
Bobbing in the ebb and flow
oh oh woah, guess I had nowhere else to go

He's an emancipated punk and he can dance
But he's got a hole in the pocket of his pants
Must be a symptom of outstanding circumstances

Me and Lazarus, we fiddle with a baby spoon
Fever flowing through the room
Far too long and way too soon
oh oh woah, guess I had nowhere else to go

Me and Lazarus, we pick up papa's white boy blues
Hand-me downs and Sunday shoes
Never made the local news
oh oh woah, guess I had nowhere else to go

And I'm a liberated loser that can roll
But where my pocket was I'm peeking through a hole
A couple second-chances surely would console me

  1. rodica zwilling

    Wunderschön 🌺

  2. S Watt

    This is more honest and soulful than the album version. I like this much more.

  3. kwijung

    I like this better than the album version by far

  4. Gabriel Robinson

    Anyone know the chords? Different tuning?


    It's A5, G and D...
    But with a capo on third it puts it in the key of C (which I think is the same as on the record)

  18. landers1983

    Sam is awesome, we should all take a tip from his music, plus this is beautiful, and if you don't think so, go back to listening to the pre-produced pop shit, and all that so called "rock" music that the studios are shitting out. God bless you Sam, you keep music alive in my heart and others!
