Testo della canzone DEATH AND HELL di Johnny Cash
Album: Miscellaneous
written by

John R. Cash and John Carter Cash

She stepped down from her carriage at 10 Vermillon Street

I took off my roustabout and slung it to her feet

We went into her parlor and she cooled me with her fan

But said i’ll go no further with a fantasy makin’ man

I said i’d walk on Ponchatrain for what you have today

Just to drink from your deep well and i’ll be on my way

She laughed and heaven filled the room said this i give to you

This body’s wisdom is the flesh,but here’s a thing or two

Death and hell are never full

And neither are the eyes of men

Cats can fly from nine stories high

And pigs can see the wind

She let me make my pallet in the moonlight on the floor

Just outside of paradise but right in hell’s back door

The image of her nibbled at the eye of my soul

My dreams were a hurricane and quite out of control

Then her voice came through the storm it’s more than flesh ideal

You will have to pay for any wisdom that you steal

I awoke to tinted windows and lavender and red

The first station of the cross is just above my head

I awoke to gargoyles and a hard bench for my bed

Jesus Christ and Pontias Pilate were just above my head

Death and hell are never full

And neither are the eyes of men

Cats can fly from nine stories high

And pigs can see the wind
