Duncan Lyrics

Couple in the next room - Bound to win a prize
They've been going at it all night long
Well, I'm trying to get some sleep
But these motel walls are cheap
Lincoln Duncan is my name and here's my song - here's my song

My father was a fisherman - My mama was the fisherman's friend
And I was born in the boredom and the chowder
So when I reached my prime - I left my home in the Maritimes
Headed down the turnpike for New England - sweet New England

Holes In my confidence - Holes In the knees of my jeans
I was left without a penny in my pocket
Oo-we I was about destituted as a kid could be and I
Wished I wore a ring - So I could hock it, I'd like to hock it

Seen a young girl in a parking lot - she was preaching to a crowd
Singing sacred songs and reading from the Bible
Well, I told her I was lost - and she told me all about the Pentecost
And I seen that girl as the road to my survival – My survival

Just later on the very same night - she crept to my tent with a flashlight
And my long years of innocence ended
Well, she took me to the woods saying
Here comes something it feels so good
And just like a dog I was befriended - I was befriended

Oh, oh, what a night - Oh what a garden of delight
Even now that sweet memory lingers
I was playing my guitar and lying underneath the stars
Just thanking the Lord for my fingers - For my fingers
