Lyrics

I have a liniment for all your ailments
And a salve to soothe your soul
A potion for all your problems
And bottles of snake oil
With a sleeve full of trickery
The sleightest of hands
It’s all right here, right now
Just step right up my friends

Bring your greenback dollar
All your coins and change
And I will bring the rain

I have the Savior’s word in my right
Hand with brimstone, fire, and wrath
Devil’s deeds are behind my back
And rabbits are in my hat
Whatever needs you might have
I’ll fix them for a price
With a satchel full of sorcery
Saints and sinners by my side

Bring your greenback dollar
All your coins and change
And I will bring the rain

Your crops and fields are drying
Storms of dust cross your plain
I’ll sell you salvation
Peddle comfort for your pain
A contribution buys redemption
Forgiveness for a fee
Faith and offerings accepted
Keep your faith when you leave

But leave your greenback dollar
All your coins and change
And I will bring the rain

I give your daughters comfort
Ease your wives misery
It’s the least I could do
After all they do for me
A charlatan’s deception
Knows no bounds, it’s true
I prey on desperation
I’ll pretend to pray for you

Bring your greenback dollar
All your coins and change
And I will bring the rain

I’ll have my wagons rolling
Before morning comes around
There’s no time to linger here
It’s on to the next town
Prophets, vagabonds and gypsies
All the likes of me
Flee the storms that follow
And the hounds at my feet

But I’ll have your greenback dollar
I’ll have your coins and change
And I will bring the rain
