Pixies - Here Comes Your Man

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 never wait so long
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
There is a wait so long
You'll never wait so long
Here comes your man

"Here Comes Your Man" is a song by the American alternative rock band Pixies, written and sung by the band's frontman Black Francis. Produced by Gil Norton, it was released as the second single from the group's second album "Doolittle" in June 1989. Written by Black Francis as a teenager, "Here Comes Your Man" was recorded for the band's 1987 demo tape, but not included on either "Come On Pilgrim" or "Surfer Rosa", as the songwriter was reluctant about releasing the song. Critics saw "Here Comes Your Man" as the Pixies' breakthrough song; Jon Dolan of Spin magazine commented that it was "the most accessible song ever by an underground-type band." The song reached number three on the U.S. Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart. In 2019, the single was certified Gold in Canada.
