Dar Williams - Calamity John Lyrics

  • Come lovers, come loners, remember yourselves
  • As lusty tempestuous fools
  • When your dream was to conquer an ocean
  • From your small secretarial pools
  • When you stood at the gulf of unknowing
  • When you saw the great tundra of time
  • And you cried for the winds to come blowing
  • And you called a monsoon from the tides of the moon
  • cause the roads were all dusty and dry
  • Come lame dancing lonely tonight
  • When what should appear in the distance
  • Blown hither and yon its calamity john
  • And hes coming to sweep you away---aye I aye ayy
  • Hell tear through the homefront, hell lift you up laughing
  • Hell blow every signpost away
  • As the weather report says high drama
  • With a five percent chance that hell stay
  • Now the floor starts to rock and the roof floats
  • And your friends say hes bad for your health
  • And theyve warmed you about him on talk shows
  • So you told him to pack, hit the road, dont come back
  • And he says hey dont flatter yourself ....and you say.....
  • I am closing my door to the storm
  • I am saving myself from its freedom
  • I have put the chain on, oh calamity john
  • I dont want you to dance me away---aye I aye ayy
  • So its seven months later youve bolted your hair back
  • Youre almost immune to the moon
  • And at parties you stay in the kitchen
  • Common sense with a big wooden spoon
  • All at once you can feel the storm coming
  • As you burst out into the old refrain
  • To the sound of america drumming
  • Call it pain, call it art, call it open your heart
  • Let it go let it fly, let it rain(oh yeah)
  • He smiles and the clouds turn to black
  • With the wind through the flowers come blowing
  • The warning bells on, whats your name, oh its john,
  • Thats such an unusual name---aye I aye ayy
