lyrics

God bless me, I got my own
This child is rich, and all alone
Lady Day, sing away
You call back those days

Anyway, anyhow
I said it then, I mean it now
I struck the sole blow
And she threw the first stone

God damn these old familiar songs
Each note lingers as I go on
Lady Day, I waste away
Haunted by refrains

Anyway, anyhow
I said it then, I mean it now
I struck the sole blow
And she threw the first stone

That stone
My past won't leave me alone
That song, that song
I can't help but sing along

Anyway, anyhow
I said it then, I mean it now
I struck the sole blow
And she threw the first stone
