Intro:

A bunch of lonesome and very quarrelsome heroes
Were smoking out
along the open road                      
The night was very dark and thick between them
Each man beneath
his ordinary load                      
"I'd like to tell my story,"
Said one of them so young and bold   
"I'd like to tell my story
Before I turn into gold."                

But no one really could hear him
The night so dark
and thick and green                     
Well I guess that these heroes
must always live there
Where you and I have only been                   
Put out your cigarette, my love
You've been alone too long    
And some of us are very hungry now
To hear what it is you've done
that was so wrong              

I sing this for the crickets
I sing this for the army                     
I sing this for your children
And for all who do not need me                   
"I'd like to tell my story,"
Said one of them so bold    
"Oh yes, I'd like to tell my story
'cause you know I feel
I'm turning into gold."
