Rattle them chains for your drunken father
Rattle them chains for the scars
You’ve been moving like molasses, like the Mississippi River
Rattle them chains from afar
A couple pretty women shedding crocodile tears
On the day that he bought the farm
He had to rattle them chains

Rattle your cage by the witching hour
Rattle the king from the throne
There's a crow perched upon a telephone wire
Rattle your aching, old bones
Battery acid and a crooked smile
The lonely are never alone
When they rattle their chains

Flutter your wings, outturned empty pockets
Rattle them pearly, white gates
St. Peter’s just bouncer and you’re not on the list
Rally them sinners and the saints
Nobody’s name gets remembered for sitting on their ass
They all had to rattle their chains


from Heart In A Mason Jar, released December 7, 2012
