I was playing my guitar trying to make bus fare

at an allnite club called the End of the World

people there of every national descent

and every race and creed and sexual preference

let 'em roll, oh baby, let 'em roll

Cause they were rockin', rockin' at the End of the World

d

 

I knew this place could be dangerous

but I needed the money to catch that bus

the rain came down like it never had before

I kept one eye on the tip jar, one eye on the door

let 'em roll, oh baby, let 'em roll

Cause they were rockin', rockin' at the End of the World

 

d

 

Then the stars fell down & the moon turned to blood

and everything happened like the bible said it would

then lightning flashed & my heart skipped a beat

floorboards opened up underneath my feet

it was the souls of the dead shaking their hips

and I knew then this was the apocalypse

 

d

Then Jesus descended in a Trailways bus

& said, "Boy, you better hurry, if you wanna come with us

I said, "Hey, bro, I need a little more time . . ."

and the Devil jumped up and caught me from behind

let me go, oh devil, let me go

you caught me rockin', rockin' at the End of the World
