Capo 1

The folks, they just can’t take no more
Throw you in the back seat, slam the door
No stoppin’ as down the road you go
Got not time to lose

Gigantic one way gate ahead
You’re thinkin’ man I’d as soon be dead
They decided to give you life instead
The sanitarium blues

Big ole nurse all dressed in white slaps you on a table in the middle of the night
Then he straps you down real tight
You’re wonderin’, what’d I do

They hose you down, make sure you’re clean
Wrap you up in hospital green
Shoot you full of Thorazine
The sanitarium blues

Could be a TB or maybe a tumor
Eavesdropping on the doctors, listening to the rumors
Can’t see your friends, hear the hum of the wheels
Hey my man, you know how it feels
Like the sanitarium blues

They upon some sunlit day they figure there’s no need for you to stay
They’re pretty sure you can’t be cured so they send you on your merry way
You hit the pavement, hang around nobody’s on the outside to be found

You’re just tryin’ to stay above the ground
You start to thinkin’, what’s the use?
The sanitarium blues
