about

Another track recorded during the Circe sessions, but not included on the album. Later released on Afterthought in 1991. This is a cover of the song by Epithet labelmates The Electra. Todd helped record The Electra's single version in 1989 and paid it homage to it in 1990.

lyrics

Just Like St. Augustine
(J. Carlson)

It's Christmastime in Paris and you're leaving on the train
Could have been the Queen of Persia or the Queen of Spain
Oo-ee, ooh my, just like St. Augustine

Deep among the nightclubs Winston Salem's crucified
Drop of whiskey blood rolls from his eye
Oo-ee, ooh my, just like St. Augustine

Too many crooks, too many victims, too many witnesses
Too many sat in the streets, tired and powerless
Oo-ee, ooh my, just like St. Augustine

If you try to lose me then I'm already lost
Everything I've worked for, everything is lost
Oo-ee, ooh my, just like St. Augustine
