The Poison and the Pain

When he took my hand
How he laid me down
To the darkest nights that I ever found
Don't drink his wine for you'll taste his blood
Oh the poison and the pain
Oh the poison and the pain

Then he'll pick you up down in Shuffletown
And he'll break the dress of your lover's gown
And he'll break the pearls of your mother's tie
Oh the poison and the pain
Oh the poison and the pain

With the windows rolled and the darkened pines
With her scriptures learned and psalms memorized
How he took her down and he stole her soul
Oh the poison and the pain
Oh the poison and the pain

And how I drank his teat from his poisoned well
And my righteous ways I unlearned so well
We'll drink his wine and you'll learn the hell
Of the poison and the pain
Oh the poison and the pain
Oh the poison and the pain
