lyrics

I was born from love
and my poor mother worked the mine
I was raised on the good book Jesus
Until I read between the lines
Now I don't believe I wanna see the morning

Going down the stoney end
I never wanted to go down the stoney end
Mama, let me start all over
Cradle me, mama, cradle me again

I can still remember her with love light in her eyes
But that light flickered out and faltered
When the sun began to rise
Now I don't believe I wanna see the morning

Going down the stoney end
I never wanted to go down the stoney end
Mama, let me start all over
Cradle me, mama, cradle me again

Never mind the forecast
'Cause the sky has lost control
'Cause the fury and broken thunder's
Come to match my raging soul
Now I don't believe I wanna see the morning.

No, never mind the forescast.

Because the sky has lost,
yeah the sky has lost
yeah the sky has lost control

You know you gotta match my ragin' soul
I never wanted to go—
goin' down the stoney end

Cradle me, my mama cradle me.

Again. And again.
And again, and again, and again!
Woah, oh I'm goin' down the stoney end!

The Society of Orpheus and Bacchus New Haven, Connecticut

Founded in 1938, the Society of Orpheus and Bacchus is the second longest-running a cappella group in the United States, after the Yale Whiffenpoofs. Initially, the group went without a name until they capitalized on a backhanded compliment received at a party—“These SOBs are good!”— invoking the talents of Orpheus, minstrel to Olympus, and the legacy of Bacchus, god of revelry, to form the SOBs. ... more
