Jackson C. Frank - Child Fixin' To Die Lyrics




It's cold and it's lonesome
But it ain't no big ride
The horses are helpless
Young child fixin' to die
It's cold and it's lonesome
Ain't no second-in-command
Go where you will now
Fate's on the land

You who rule people
Are princes and kings
See my body is open
See my father lay waste
Fly swift as an eagle
Take comfort from that
And child fixin' to die now
My little boy's time has come

You who rule people
Eternally free
Of robbing your prisoners
Take a lesson from me
It's cold and it's lonesome
But it ain't no big ride
The horses are helpless
Young child fixin' to die

The horses are helpless
Young child fixin' to die

  3. robert harding

    Poor man, he went through such trauma, when he saw most of his class mates die, he seems to have felt guilty that he survived, these survivors are not survivors but just guilt ridden folks who never really accept their survival.

    It´s cold and it´s lonesome
    But it ain´t no big ride
    horses are helpless
    Young child fixin´to die.
    It´s cold and it´s lonesome
    Ain´t no second in command
    Go where he will now
    Fate´s on the land.

    You who rule people
    are princes and kings
    see my body is open
    see my father lay waste
    Fly swift as an eagle
    take comfort from that
    Young child fixin´ to die now
    my little boy´s time has come.

    You who rule people
    eternally free
    of robbing your prisoners
    take a lesson from me.
    it´s cold and it´s lonesome
    but it ain´t no big ride.
    The horses are helpless
    Young child fixin´ to die
    The horses are helpless
    Young child fixin´ to die.

    This is it. The saddest song I have heard in 27 years on this planet. His recorded spectre watches over us; a hopeful beacon to those who understand.

  6. 12D3

    This is a perfect example of art fueled by a life of pain and hardships. Astonishing.

    Sky PROF90

    Indeed, his life was painfull torture which fueled his blues

  7. Melchior Gołowąs

    He's looking cool when his head is going closer and farther like this. :f Song is lovely too, never heard it before.

  8. Michael Smith

    Listen to I want to be alone, then this song. Wow.

  9. voxel123456789

    Грусно и усыпляюще.
    Наверное потому, что не понимаю текст.
    Ну и пойду-ка я спать.
    Хотя песня и исполнитель - нормуль!

    Good song, i like that. But little sleepy. Ok, it's my problem if I can't understand the lyrics,

    Sky PROF90

    voxel123456789, все равно дословно не перевести...о смерти мальчика, прототип которого его сын, умерший от какой то болезни...

  10. Mario Lipton

    It really breaks my heart, I am very sad that he died in solitary conditions. Alcoholic and probably very "deep", the best leave well ... Life is unfair.

  11. lunik

    Por favor necesito la letra en español..

  12. zacka161

    My favourite song in the world

  14. Scott Genn

    serious soul aching going on here...

  15. carlose0318

    reminds me of nick drake in some ways....although this man is still way more underappreciated. there's such a gut-wrenching pain that i can almost feel in this song. thanks for the post. nice to see someone else that has an appreciation for true genius....and only 1688 fucking views....
