Bread and Water

by Caroline Horn and Paul Merian

Been throwing back Dixie down at Lafitte's Blacksmith
Passing up gumbo that God would have bought
Since you've been gone, all I live on is
Bread and water for thought

This town is a banquet for any blithe traveller
A prison for those who killed love and got caught
Since you left home, I'm drinking alone
Just bread and water for thought

Food for thought
Nurse your bowl
A man finds his soul in his grandmother's stew
So we're taught
So I'm told
As I chew on this crust of desire for you

Bite down as I drive past the glittering wheat fields
Grist for the millions of dreams to be lost
Since you've been gone, all I live on is
Bread and water for thought

Food for thought
Flesh for bone
A branch of magnolia in the courtyard
But you're not
Coming home
And I can't touch the meal that they shove through the bars

Been throwing back Dixie down at Lafitte's Blacksmith
Passing up gumbo that God would have bought
Since you've been gone, all I live on is
Bread and water for thought
Bread and water
