Lyrics:
Beat my bones against the wall
Staring down an empty hall
Deep down in a hollow log
Coming home like a letter bomb
Cold was the storm
That covered the night

Call the doctor, call the ghost
Put a fire into your bones
Sic a dog on all you know
Cut it loose before you go
Cold was the storm
That covered the night

What makes the soul the soul of a man?

Beat my bones against the wall
Put a fire and throw your ball [notes say "bank note on your bond"]
Gris-gris and a goldenrod
Deep down in a hollow log
Cold was the storm
That burned in the night

What makes the soul the soul of a man?
