Artist's Notes

A rock song about a guy whose life started out filled with parental love but somehow he's ended up living on the streets.


Lyrics

Six Foot Six Jimi

 

(Verse 1)
Down in the boneyard
Pickin' through the ol' cars,
Searching for a nickel
In a world of steel.

I tell you life's so hard
Scraping broken jam jars,
Making do with nuthin?
When you need a meal.

(Chorus)
Six foot six Jimi
begs for sticks,
So he can make a fire
For its warm glow.

(Verse 2)
Ain't got no bank card
No credit at the bars..,
Pushed around by harsh lords
Who would make him kneel.


A life so scarred?
Cold nights under the stars?,
Dreaming of a better past
But was it truly real?

(Bridge)
Six pound six Jimi
A new-born baby,
held so warmly
In his parents' arms.
Love, love, loved you so
Won't ever let you go,
The happiest moments
That he would ever know.

(Chorus)
Six foot six Jimi
begs for sticks,
So he can make a fire
For its warm glow.

(Verse 3 ? repeat of Verse 1)
Down in the boneyard
Pickin' through the ol' cars,
Searching for a nickel
In a world of steel.

 

I tell you life's so hard
Scraping broken jam jars,
Making do with nuthin?
When you need a meal.

 

(Chorus)
Six foot six Jimi
begs for sticks,
So he can make a fire
For its warm glow.
Love, love, loved you so
Won't ever let you go,
Love, love, loved you so
It's such a shame he had to grow.

(Outro to fade)

But we'll all be the same
When we're laid head to toe,
Buried under rocks
Under earth and under snow.

 

Down in the boneyard

Down in the boneyard

Down in the boneyard ?
