Song title: Beneath the floodline

Beneath the floodline

Put on your muddy boots
Even down on Main Street
where the assassin shoots
In a rock 'n roll beat
and gypsy dancers dance
and roll the night away
and cowboy figures ride
Yeah , just to fade away
They say they're listenin'
but they aint even tryin'
There's the blood that's glistening
glistening down on the vine
Beneath the floodline
