RIP Captain Beefheart

Uh thick cloud caught uh piper clubs tail The match struck blue on uh railroad rail The old puff horse was just pullin' thru 'n uh man wore uh peg leg forever I'm on the bum where the hoboes run The air breaks with filthy chatter Oh I don't care there's no place there I don't think it matters My skin's blazin' thru 'n my clothes in tatters 'n the railroad looked Like uh "Y" up the hill of ladders Ohe shoe fell on the gravel One stick poked down Gray of age fell down on uh pair of ears An eagle shined thru my hole watch pocket Uh gingham girl baby girl Passed me by in tears Uh jack rabbit raised his folded ears Uh beautiful sagebrush jack rabbit 'n an oriole sang like an orange His breast full uh worms 'n his tail clawed the evenin' like uh hammer His wings took t' air like uh bomber 'n my rain can caught me uh cup uh water When I got into town Odd jobs mam ah yer horse I'll fodder I'm the round house man I once was yer father Uh little up the road uh wooden Candy stripe barber pole 'n above it read uh sign "Painless Parker" Lic-licorice twisted around under uh fly 'n uh youngster cocked 'er eye God before me if I'm not crazy Is my daughter Come little one with yer little dimpled fingers Gimme one 'n I'll buy you uh cherry phosphate Take you down t' the foamin' brine 'n water 'n show you the wooden tits On the Goddess with the pole out s'full sail That tempted away yer peg legged father I was shanghaied by uh high hat beaver moustache man 'n his pirate friend I woke up in vomit 'n beer in uh banana bin 'n uh soft lass with brown skin Bore me seven babies with snappin' black eyes 'n beautiful ebony skin 'n here it is I'm with you my daughter Thirty years away can make uh seaman's eyes Uh round house man's eyes flow out water Salt water.... -Orange Claw Hammer, Trout Mask Replica 1969
