Lyrics

Open up the slider and identify yourself, voices calling can I have this dance
There’s a party in the great hall tonight, with a hundred shades of darkness
See the whites of their eyes, down at the Odd Fellows Hall

Ghost men smokin’ cigarettes and talkin’ bout the weather
Waitn’ on the ladies for a dance, like shadows silent in the night
Hear’m dancing in the dark, down at the Odd Fellows Hall

From the civil war to prohibition, international order of the oddies
Used to be the place, the place to be, old crows on a telephone line
Watch’m gatherin’ on Main Street, down at the Odd Fellows Hall

Jebadiah and Sisters of Charity, payin’ debts of the poor
Freein them all from the rich, while the Red Cross gives out blood
Hearts pumpin’ with generosity, down at the Odd Fellows Hall

During the Great Depression, a life savor for the hungry
Always a helping hand, given hope to the hopeless
Reach out and find someone, down at the Odd Fellows Hall

Feel the presences of the sprit, here today and gone tomorrow
Pourin’ out their hearts and souls, direct descendents of the past
Standing side by side, down at the Old Fellows Hall

Now a new cast of characters walk these hollowed hallways
Joe the barber and the Rocket Fish, Angel Reader and the Starlite
So many faces come and go, down at the Odd Fellows Hall

See the white of their eyes, hear’m dancing in the dark
Watch’m gathern’ on Main Street, hearts pumpin with generosity
Reach out and find someone, as they stand side by side
So many faces come and go, down at the Odd Fellows Hall
Down at the Odd Fellows Hall
