Weekly Tunes EP45 - Here Comes Your Man - Pixies

Introducing Here Comes Your Man by Pixies which built around an unforgettable guitar riff. Framed by easy-going, lush acoustic guitars, the song is backed by a very danceable beat and the playful jangling of a tambourine.
 
This song was written by Black Francis when he was about 15 and was inspired by small earthquakes experienced growing up in California. Lines such as, "Big shake on the box car moving, big shake to the land that's falling down," conjure imagery of natural destruction.
 
 
 
Lyrics:
Outside there's a box car waiting
Outside the family stew
Out by the fire breathing
Outside we wait 'til face turns blue
 
I know the nervous walking
I know the dirty beard hangs
Out by the box car waiting
Take me away to nowhere plains
 
There is a wait so long
You'll never wait so long
 
Here comes your man
Here comes your man
Here comes your man
 
Big shake on the box car moving
Big shake to the land that's falling down
Is a wind makes a palm stop blowing
A big, big stone fall and break my crown
 
There is a wait so long
You'll never wait so long
 
Here comes your man
Here comes your man
Here comes your man
Here comes your man
 
There is a wait so long
You'll never wait so long
 
Here comes your man
