Man In Black

by M. DeHarp

Genre: Folk/Acoustic

Lyrics

They called him the man
They called him the man
Sometimes they called him a creep
But now they take it back.

Don´t feel the pain
Ain´t got no shame
Laying under them cold clean sheets
On a long dark night.

Watching the paint dry on the wall
Funny there ain´t no pain at all
Pretty soon he should be feeling fine
Though the doctors said there weren´t much hope
This ain´t nothing like he´d been told
Funny the way things get so clear
Just ´cause you know
You gonna die.

They should have left his boots in the corner
He might still feel like taking a wander
There´s a full moon out the window.

He´s longing for the warmth of a hand
The touch of a lover
The voice of a friend
But it´s late
And they all went home

So he´s staring long and hard at the ceiling
Wondering if in the end
He could have done better
Memories go by,
Betrayals and warnings,
Bits and pieces of songs that he´ll never sing:
Soon it´ll be morning
There won´t be no time
Anymore…

Chorus (to sing: “La.Lala” etc)

They called him the man (x2)
Sometimes they called him a thief
But now they take it back

Don´t feel the pain
Ain´t got no shame
Laying under them cold clean sheets
On a long dark night.
Soon he´ll be letting up
Soon he´ll be letting go
Down to the other side
He´s gonna let it flow
And in every juke joint in the land
They´ll be singing his songs ´cause he was the man
In black

Chorus (x3)
