A Minor Place

Will Oldham

A Minor Place - Bonnie Prince Billy

 

I’ve been to a minor place
and I can say I like it’s face
If I am gone and with no trace
I will be in a minor place 

Well I put the shoes in line 
Separate the women mine 
As we do what we do fine 
So victorious, so benign 

I’ve been to a minor place
and I can say I like it’s face
If I am gone and with no trace
I will be in a minor place 

I’ve been to a minor place
and I can say I like it’s face
If I am gone and with no trace
I will be in a minor place 

I’ve been to a minor place
and I can say I like it’s face
If I am gone and with no trace
I will be in a minor place 

Only take the weather warm 
And the job that does me harm 
The scars of last year’s storm 
Rest like maggots on my arm 

I’ve been to a minor place
and I can say I like it’s face
If I am gone and with no trace
I will be in a minor place 

Thank you man if for the thought 
That all my loving can be bought 
Was wisely in your gullet caught
Before my loyalty you sought 

I’ve been to a minor place
and I can say I like it’s face
If I am gone and with no trace
I will be in a minor place 

Oh, it’s not a desert nor a web 
Nor a tomb where I lay dead 
Minor in a sound alone 
Yes, a clear commanding tone

Singing from my little point 
And aching in my every joint 
I thank the world it will anoint me 
If I show it how I hold it
