In The Mirror
I left my heart at home, friend
Knowing as I did what needed doing...
so, I did it
I brought my mind along...
I couldn't just leave it behind,
so my feelings tagged along too
Though feelings aren't always of love,
like those that remained with my heart...
I knew what needed doing
Out along the old back trail
I found him eating his spoils
You could say that she made his last meal
I cut him clean in two
with a single sweep of my blade,
for the deed which he'd done to my kin
Now, comes that long walk home
My sister's remains in my game bag...
half eaten by her killer
When the cabin smoke appeared,
there was a great relief in my soul...
but my heart just wouldn't wait
Now, if you find yourself trekkin' through these here woods,
stay clear away from the cabin that smokes...
for it's there that lives, a heartless man
...just bein' Bluesy
