lyrics

Where did you come from and where do you go?
The rattlers are still and the ashes are cold
The stage, it is empty, the Union Halls dark
And the lights are so bright that I can't see the stars

Ain't no heaven and hell in the Great By-And-By
Where the dead, they are laughing, singing and spilling their wine

Seattle to Spokane, Missoula to Butte
The spare-changers' stories so boring and true
Now the world ain't so lonesome without you around
Hey, tell me, where can you camp where you can't hear a sound?

Ain't no heaven and hell in the Great By-And-By
Where the dead, they are laughing, singing and spilling their wine
Oh, the stories we'll tell on our last and long ride
Where the dead, they are laughing, singing and spilling their wine

Now that God's gone and the devil's in a hole
It's Aces, Straights, Flushes with Johnny and Joe
No masters, no yard bulls to chase a boy down
He's gone to where the bums go when they're run out of town

Say so long to the rails
From the sage to the pine
While the dead, they are laughing
Singing and spilling their wine

Where do you come from and where did you go?

Mischief Brew Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Emerging from the undead ashes of PA punk troupe The Orphans, Mischief Brew started with a scratchy demo tape in 2000 and has since spread the good word of anarchy, hilarity, and rebellion across state lines and even the Atlantic Ocean a few times. We've managed to exist for over 13 years in one form or another by kissing nobody's ass and doing everything ourselves, for the most part. No rules! ... more
