Artist/Band: Old 97s
Lyrics for Song: Holy Cross
Lyrics for Album: Other Songs - Old 97s



You work for 37 years

Drivin' trucks, not shiftin' gears

He never got it in his head

To settle down, he'd never wed.



He liked the river how it flowed.

Unlike the breaker, never to explode.

It had no wires runnin' in

It just went on and on and on until the ocean got to it.



Holy Cross

Electric Association

Oh well it's more than a job

It's more like a damnation

Well it was my life, now it's my loss

Holy Cross



It was a honey of a night

He met his maker, he saw the light.

The car was passin' on a curve

He never slowed down, he never swerved.



And in the hot glare of the lamps

He had regrets, he'd never learned to dance.

There was no angel at his side

There was a purpose that became homeless when he died.



Holy Cross

Electric Association

Oh well it's more than a job

It's more like a damnation

Well it was my life, now it's my loss

Holy Cross

Electric Association

Oh well it's more than a job

It's more like a damnation

Well it was my life, now it's my loss

Holy Cross

Well it was my life, now it's my loss

Well it was my life, now it's my loss

Holy Cross
