Fm 
Look yonder! Look yonder! 
Look yonder! A big black cloud come! 
A big black cloud come! 
Yeah come to Tupelo, Come to Tupelo 


Fm 
Yonder on the horizon 
Yonder on the horizon 
Stopped at the mighty river 
Stopped at the mighty river and 
Sucked the damn thing dry 
Tupelo-o-o, O Tupelo 
In a valley hides a town called Tupelo 


Fm 
Distant thunder rumble. Distant thunder rumble 
Rumble hungry like the Beast 
The Beast it cometh, cometh down 
The Beast it cometh, cometh down 
Woah woah woahhh 

                           D# 
Tupelo bound. Tupelo-o-o. Yeah Tupelo 
                           Fm 
The Beast it cometh, Tupelo bound 


Fm 
Why the hen won't lay no egg 
Can't get that cock to crow 
The nag is spooked and crazier 
Oh God help Tupelo! Oh God help Tupelo! 
Oh God help Tupelo! Oh God help Tupelo! 


Fm 
You can say these streets are rivers 
You can call these rivers streets 
You can tell yourself you're dreaming buddy 
But no sleep runs this deep 
No! No sleep runs this deep 
Women at their windows 
Rain crashing on the pane 
Writing in the frost 
Tupelo's shame. Tupelo's shame 
Oh God help Tupelo! Oh God help Tupelo! 


Fm 
Oh go to sleep little children 
The sandmans on his way 
Oh go to sleep little children 
The sandmans in his way 
But the little children know 
They listen to the beating of their blood 
Listen to the beating of their blood 
Listen to the beating of their blood 
They listen to the beating of their blood 
The sandman's mud! 
The sandman's mud! 
And the black rain come down 
The black rain come down 
The black rain come down 
Water water everywhere 
Where no bird can fly no fish can swim 
Where no bird can fly no fish can swim 
No fish can swim 
Until The King is born! 
Until The King is born! 
                   D# 
In Tupelo! Tupelo-o-o! 
                        Fm 
Til The King is born in Tupelo! 


Fm 
In a clapboard shack with a roof of tin 
Where the rain came down and leaked within 
Young mother frozen on a concrete floor                                        
With a bottle and a box and a cradle of straw 
                  D# 
Tupelo-o-o! Oh Tupelo! 
                                      Fm 
With a bottle and a box and a cradle of straw 



Fm 
Saturday gives what Sunday steals 
And a child is born at a brothers' heels 
Come Sunday morning the firstborn dead 
In a shoebox tied with a ribbon of red 
                 D# 
Tupelo-o-o! Hey Tupelo!  
                                      Fm 
In a shoebox buried with a ribbon of red 


Fm 
Oh the mama rock you little one slow 
Mama rock your baby 
Mama rock your little one slow 
God help Tupelo! God help Tupelo! 
Mama rock your little one slow 
The little one will walk on Tupelo 
The little one will walk on Tupelo 
Black rain come down, Black rain come down 
             D# 
Tupelo-o-o! Yeah Tupelo! 
                 Fm 
And carry the burden of Tupelo 
             D# 
Tupelo-o-o! Oh Tupelo! Yeah! 
                      Fm 
The King will walk on Tupelo! 
            D# 
Tupelo-o-o! Oh Tupelo! 
                             Fm 
He carried the burden out of Tupelo! 
             D# 
Tupelo-o-o! Hey Tupelo! 
                     Fm 
You will reap just what you sow
