Josh Ritter – Young Moses Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Lay down, young Moses, child
Your wandering star a while
Hang your heart on a quiet soul and
Stay a while in the house of gold
Each room has many mansions;
Each mansion many rooms
You’ll sleep on sheets of silver;
You’ll eat on plates of moon

[Verse 2]
I will take up white linen
I will a’ roving go
I do not need your mansions;
I will live in a house of soul
Bring me my Florida Water
Set me my serpent free
Hang ye no stars above me;
I am bound for Expidite!

[Breakdown]
And all the love they’re gonna give me
(All the love, all the love, all the love)
They’re gonna be my family now;
Y’all can keep your thrones

[Verse 3]
I’ve been up on the mountain
I’ve been to the end of the line
I’ve pierced the fiery curtain
And the only face I touched was mine

[Verse 4]
I’ll burn me through Ohio
I’ll find the Appleseed
Who lives on lightning bugs;
His mouth’ll glow when he begins to preach
I’ll burn me through the handle
I’ll drink the cactus truths;
Appear to peyoteras
Hills the color of conqueror root

[Verse 5]
I got my heavy working
I hung your capstone, too
I’m the king of the milk maids, honey;
Say my name you know it’s true
I got my heavy working
I like my lightning sweet
I’ve been a beast of burden;
That is to say I am a beast
