This is the first song that Joel wrote for electric guitar.

Lyrics

Walking down a road feeling alright
Saw a man in the dead of night
Standing up against a tall oak tree
Said I'll get you anything you need, alright

So I went up and I followed him down
Strait down into the ground
Down beneath that tall oak tree
Where they'll get you anything you need, alright

It's a strange world that we live in today
People believe anything you say
It's okay, it's alright
Till you're on the floor with a bloody knife
It's a painful life

Down below was filled with wonderful things
Cheap women with big, diamond rings
Diamond rings
So I asked him is all this mine
He said, of course son won't please try the wine
That wine

It's a strange world that we live in today
People believe anything you say
It's okay, it's alright
Till you're on the floor with a bloody knife
It's a painful life

Just then a pain came to my back
Fell so flat and fast thought I had a heart attack
Ain't that a fact

Things went blurry faster than I knew
Something warm finally seeped through
He stood above me with a smile on his chin
That's when I knew my next life
Was about to begin
