Big Yellow Joint Jimmy

Lula Mae and Anna Marie followed a road they heard led to the sea

As the sky got darker they walked on still

Mae had her gun, Anna had her pill

They met a stranger on the hill

Said he was called Big Yellow Joint Jimmy


Deep in the forest surrounded by evergreens was his house made of wood with a stone chimney.

He cut their hair and fed them tree bark

They curled around his feet and listened to the radio in the dark


When they woke up and left, Mae couldn’t find her gun and Anna couldn’t swallow her pill

They walked onward together, further towards the sea

Their eyes were pale violet and the world was still
