  1. Song Lyrics

    Somewhere over the rainbow
    I’m feeling blue.
    My woman done left me.
    And my dog Toto too
    I landed on a Witch
    Gave the Munchkins a thrill
    Nobody ever loved me till I started to kill
    I got the Yellow Brick Emerald City Horse of another color blues

    When I see that Emerald City
    Ain’t nothin gonna stop me
    No evil flying monkey
    No wicked witch’s poppies!
    Now I’m standing at the crossroads
    Trying to ease my pain
    The scarecrow say he would show me the way if he only had a brain!
    I got the Yellow Brick Emerald City Horse of another color blues

    We show up in the throne room
    Tell a head our intention
    There’s a man behind the curtain,
    But I don’t pay attention
    Take the fight to the Witch
    The plan is so risky
    We melt that girl with water; hey, that’s why I drink whiskey
    I got the Yellow Brick Emerald City Horse of another color blues

    Tin Man got his heart
    Lion got his guts
    Scarecrow got his brains
    Aurora Joplin got Ron Stutts

    You were there and you were there
    I wake up and cry
    Lions and tigers and bears and my ex-wife, oh my!
    I got the Yellow Brick Ruby Slippers Emerald City Sepia Kansas Rusty Can Tin Man Horse of another color blues
    Oh my!
