  • Old 97’s – Holy Cross lyrics

    You work for 37 years
    Drivin’ trucks, not shiftin’ gears
    He never got it in his head
    To settle down, he’d never wed.

    He liked the river how it flowed.
    Unlike the breaker, never to explode.
    It had no wires runnin’ in
    It just went on and on and on until the ocean got to it.

    Holy Cross
    Electric Association
    Oh well it’s more than a job
    It’s more like a damnation
    Well it was my life, now it’s my loss
    Holy Cross

    It was a honey of a night
    He met his maker, he saw the light.
    The car was passin’ on a curve
    He never slowed down, he never swerved.

    And in the hot glare of the lamps
    He had regrets, he’d never learned to dance.
    There was no angel at his side
    There was a Thermos that became homeless when he died.

    Holy Cross
    Electric Association
    Oh well it’s more than a job
    It’s more like a damnation
    Well it was my life, now it’s my loss

    Electric Association
    Oh well it’s more than a job
    It’s more like a damnation
    Well it was my life, now it’s my loss
    Holy Cross
    Well it was my life, now it’s my loss
    Well it was my life, now it’s my loss
    Holy Cross
