Lyrics

Young bones groan, and the rocks below say "Throw your skinny body down, son"

But I'm going to meet the one I love So please don't stand in my way Because I'm going to meet the one I love No, mama, let me go

Young bones groan and the rocks below say "Throw your white body down"

But I'm going to meet the one I love At last, at last, at last! I'm going to meet the one I love La-de-da, la-de-da No, mama, let me go No, no, no, no, no, no

I thought that if you had an acoustic guitar Then it meant that you were A protest singer Oh, I can smile about it now But at the time it was terrible No, mama, let me go No, no, no, no, no, no
