‘nineteen twenty nine’

from ‘nineteen twenty nine,’ by the rocketboys:

did you hear gospel songs
could you hear our tears making them sound wrong
never had we felt more alone
oh, could you hear gospel songs

like a train on its track
we made our way in black
through the hallway to the back
oh, like a train on its track

when four of us were carrying you on poles
it was a burden we wanted
so we could know that you were close
when four of us were carrying you on poles

oh, did you hear gospel songs
