This song is about Robert Johnson.


Athletes are students of the game
Their labor's puritanical
Their iron will's mechanical
Precise, they exemplify the ideal
Yes they do

The natural could never say the same
The unasked question answers
Why, of course their better dancers
They don't think, instincts react
They play by feel
Yes they do

They like to give you reasons
They like to act berserk
They like to take the credit
While you do all the work
So at the church or at the crossroads
No one wants your soul
And no one wants to talk to you
And no one wants to know.
No they don't

If you
Don't practice
I'd hate to contemplate
You know
The fact is
You'll suffer a worse fate
Well, you could go to Parchman Farm
Or come to some far greater harm
Trouble follows certain folks around
Yeah, trouble follows certain folks around
Yes it do
