Williams, Lucinda - House Of Earth Lyrics




Come to my house of earth if you would like for me to gather old time feelings back
Come here to my house of good, rich earth if you would like for me to teach your wife a thing or two

Come here to this illegal place with joys and teach your wife this way to grow new boys
I'll take you by your hand and show you pearls of these same feelings that grow pretty girls

I'll wash your feet a couple of times a day 'til all your old time sorrow melts away
You'll leave some drops of honey on my couch I'll leave a couple dollars in your pouch

My house of earth is the richest land in town
I pity those dead ones that at me frown
So come to my house of earth and learn its worth
A few green folded bills to learn of earth

I kiss you in such odd and natural ways, your wife will then find out that kissing pays
Two times a day I wash you in my tub, ten times a day I'll pet your skin and rub

Call me a prostitute and a whore too, I do these tricks your wife refuses to
I swear by all my bibles you won't regret, I've never seen a man who's sorry yet

I'll love you once to teach you all your life the things to do when you are with your wife
Your wife should be quite glad and proud of me for waking both of these things you see

My house of earth runs down with wine around
Lots of different ways here that you can come
And if you do come, I will be glad to see you
And if you don't come, I'm glad you don't need me

I've finished red, hot kisses, I know that wakes sleepy sickness in your soul

    House of Earth

    Words by Woody Guthrie, Music by Lucinda Williams
    Come to my House of Earth if you would like

    For me to give your old time feelings back.
    Come here to my house of good rich earth if you

    Would like me teach your wife a thing or two.
    Come here to this legal illegal place for joys

    And teach your wife this way to grow new boys.
    I’ll take you by your had and show you whirls

    Of these same feelings that grow pretty girls.
    I’ll wash your feet a couple of times a day

    Till all your old time sorrows melt away.
    You leave some drops of honey on my couch

    I leave a couple of dollars in your pouch.
    My house of earth is the richest land in town

    I pity those dead ones that at me frown.
    SO come to my house of earth and learn it’s worth

    A few green folded bills to learn of birth.
    I’ll kiss you in such odd and natural ways

    Your wife will then find out that kissing pays.
    Two times a day I’ll wash you in my tub

    Ten times a day I’ll pat your skin and rub.
    Call me a prostitute and a whore, too,

    I do these tricks your wife refuses to.
    I swear by all my bibles you won’t regret

    I’ve never met a man that’s sorry yet.
    I love you once to teach you all your life

    The things to do when you are with your wife.
    Your wife should be quite glad and proud of me

    For waking both of you up these things to see.
    My house of earth runs down with wine and rum

    Lots of different ways here you can come.
    If you do come I will be glad to see

    If you don’t come I’m glad you don’t need me. 
    I’ll furnish red hot kisses and the hole

    That wakes up sleeping sickness in your soul.
