Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Shiloh, Shiloh
Gunning after I know, I knows
Shiloh, Shiloh
Gunning after I know, I knows
We're gonna be so high
Another swallow, lest she climb
We're gonna be so high
Gonna be just right
A deuce with every dime
One dustbowl at a time
Callin, fallin', stallin', sailing by satellite
Yet who slips by

Shiloh, Shiloh
Singing after I know, I knows
Shiloh, Shiloh
Singing after I know, I knows

Near pacific pine, I'll be laying union tides
Cracked and colorblind
We're gonna be so high
Gonna be just right
At deuce with every dime

Callin, fallin', stallin', sailing by satellite
Aching, taking, stakin', losing my love by light
Yet who slips by

Shiloh, Shiloh
Running after home
