How To Become Clairvoyant

Axman
(Robbie Robertson)

They say the Axman’s coming in a long, black car
They said the Axman’s coming he plays a mean guitar Well, he slipped across the border with a hatchet in his hand They said who’s that stranger? The one they call the Axman You got Duane and Stevie Ray all brothers of the blade
Jimi James and RJ all brothers of the blade
And when he goes from town to town
He picks ’em up and lays ’em down
People comin’ from miles around
Just to dig that crazy sound
I heard a guitar wailin’ until the break of dawn
You know the Axman was here Oh, but now he’s gone
You got T Bone and Link Wray all brothers of the blade Then there’s Django and Elmore James all brothers of the blade Now when he goes from town to town
He picks ’em up and lays ’em down
People comin from miles around
Just to dig that crazy sound
(Go ahead)
Play so low, so sweet
Bring a tear to your eye chills run down to your feet Make a grown man cry
One-eyed jacks, king with the axe Like Albert or Freddy

One-eyed jacks, king with the axe and of course BB was born ready And when he goes from town to town
He picks ’em up and lays ’em down
People comin’ from miles around
Just to dig that crazy sound
