Down at The Khyber

I’ve been away, man, I’ve been traveling
I’ve been lost, I fucked around
And like a heavy mind unraveling
Through open fields and prairie towns
I got sick and I got sicker
I spent a month in bed
Until the visions came to me quicker
I saw ghosts and I saw red

Am I still alive? Where did I collapse?
In Edmonton, Alberta or home in Halifax?
Float me down the river
To the Musquodoboit Harbour
Because I’m getting nowhere

I met my love down at the Khyber
And we drifted through the crowd
When I finally lay down beside her
You could hear my heart out loud
And when I’m gone she’d never leave me
No sir, she’d never be untrue
Buddy, if you don’t believe me
You don’t believe the sky is blue

Am I still alive? Where did I collapse?
In Edmonton, Alberta or home in Halifax?
Float me down the river
To the Musquodoboit Harbour
Because I’m getting nowhere

If it feels just like a toss off
Perhaps it is, perhaps it ain’t
Do you remember at the sock hop
Did I dance or did I faint?
