Elton John - "Whitewash County Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

Tonight it's hot down here
I can almost smell the rain
Behind your name
Fans turning on the ceiling
And I can almost taste the fear
I feel sticky as a chili dog
White boys howling in the evening

On that hollow log
Tall tales down the river
But the right hand just delivered
Say we aim to bury the truth
The devil in a suit
And he talks big in Whitewash county
Talks sweet as sugar cane

Got a past that's filled with lightning
Got a future filled with rain
Fiddle scratching some lazy tune

Bug buzzing in an empty glass
We're just some place that history passed
New dust, new broom
And it's a high hot buttered moon
Swears the South's gonna rise again soon
He's got a shiny new wax face

All over the place
Rain down on Whitewash county
Smell the air coming up the line
But you never change your mind
#############################################Well you've changed your face so often
