Lyrics Fat man lookin' in a blade of steel Thin man lookin' at his last meal Hollow man lookin' in a cottonfield For dignity
Wise man lookin' in a blade of grass Young man lookin' in the shadows that pass Poor man lookin' through painted glass For dignity
Somebody got murdered on New Year's Eve Somebody said that dignity was the first to leave I went into the city, into the town Into the land of the midnight sun
Searchin' high, searchin' low Searchin' everywhere I know Askin' the cops wherever I go Have you seen dignity?
Blind man breakin' out of a trance Puts both of his hands in the pockets of chance Hopin' to find one circumstance Of dignity
I went to the wedding of Mary Lou She said I don't want nobody see me talkin' to you She could get killed if she told me what she knew About dignity
I went down where the vultures feed I would've got deeper but there wasn't any need I heard the tongues of angels and the tongues of men And it wasn't any difference to me
Chilly wind sharp as a razor blade House on fire, debts unpaid Gonna stand at the window, gonna ask the maid Have you seen dignity?
Drinkin' man listens to the voice he hears In a crowded room full of covered up mirrors Lookin' into the lost forgotten years For dignity
I met Prince Phillip at the home of the blues Said he'd give me information if his name wasn't Hugh He wanted money up front, he said he'd been abused By dignity
Footprints runnin' cross the silver sand Steps goin' down into tattoo land I met the sons of darkness and the sons of light In the bordertowns of despair
Got no place to fade, got no coat I'm on the rollin' river in a jerkin' boat Tryin' to read a letter to me somebody wrote About dignity
Sick man lookin' for the doctors cure Lookin' at his hands for the lines that were And into every masterpiece of literature For dignity
Englishman stranded in the blackheart wind Combin' his hair back, his future looks thin He bites the bullet and he looks within For dignity
Someone showed me a picture, I just had to laugh Dignity never been photographed I went into the red, went into the black Went into the valley of dry bone dreams
So many roads, so much at stake So many dead ends and I'm at the edge of the lake Sometimes I wonder what it's gonna take To find dignity
