about

A fictional conversation with P. T. Barnum.
Dedicated to the memory of Deacon Joe.

lyrics

I said I'd meet my friend down at the tavern
To sit a spell and share a drink
Two whiskies deep he said,
‘Blame George and Paper Collar! But thanks for all the publicity...

...You're not alone in thinkin' 'bout the water
Or about the human soul...
Look in the eyes of every sheep before its slaughter,
Eager and scared and gullible.’

Back when the giants roamed the earth...
Back when they drank of the seas...
Back when the giants roamed the earth...
So free.

‘If I could I'd sell a man the shirt that he's wearin’,
Just to prove a simple fact...
Willin' to turn your pockets inside-out for silly stories?
You really think you deserve it on your back?

...You're not alone in thinkin' 'bout the culture
They been busy tryin' to suppress...
It never mattered much to me,
The colors on your palette,
S'long's i know you got ethics.’

Back when the giants roamed the earth...
Back when they drank of the seas...
Back when the giants roamed the earth...
So free.

He asked ‘Why'd you get so quiet?
You've been nursin' every drink...
I know it's tough, seein' the world for what it is,
'A sucker every minute', so to speak.’

I said, ‘It stains my tongue when I talk about the country...
When's the last time you felt relaxed?’
With a grin he shot back, ‘Back when the giants still roamed free."
Finishing his drink, he paid and walked out with a laugh...

Back when the giants roamed the earth...
Back when they drank of the seas...
Back when the giants roamed the earth...
So free...

Back when the giants roamed the earth...
Back when they drank deep of the seas...
Back when the giants roamed the earth...
So free.
