Lyrics:

He lost his mind today
He left it out back on the highway
On "65"

She loved him yesterday
Yesterday's over
I said okay
That's all right
       
Time moves on
That's the way
We live an hope to see the next day
That's all right

Sometimes these things they are so easy
Sometimes these things they are so cold
Sometimes these things just seem to rip you right in two
Oh no man don't let 'em get ta you

She loved him yesterday
He laid her sister
She said O.K.
And that's all right

Buried her things today
Way back out deep
Behind the driveway
And that's all right

Sometimes these women are so easy
Sometimes these women are so cold
Sometimes these women seem to rip you right in two
Only if you let 'em get to you

Ya get out on your own
And you/take all that you own
And you/forget about your home
And then you're/just fuckin' gone

There's no logic here today
Do as you got to, go your own way
I said that's right
       
Time's short your life's your own
And in the end
We are just
Dust n' bones


Quotes regarding the song and its making:

And Izzy has this, like, very wry sense of humour, man. He’s got this song about...(half-singing the lyrics) : « She lost her mind today, got splattered out on the highway, I say that’s OK... » (laughs) ! It’s called ‘Dust and bones’, I think, and it’s great. The rhythm reminds me of something like ‘Cherokee people’ by Paul Revere and the Raiders, only really weird and rocked out. It’s a weird song. But then it is by Izzy, what can I tell you?
Kerrang, April 21 or 28, 1990

On 'Dust And Bones' and I don't (usually) sing! (laughs) But it's a song that me and Izzy actually wrote the riffs for and so, when that part came up, I sang it and I sing it live too. So I've got that new responsibility. They're trying to put tea out on stage for me! I can't get to the tea, let alone drink it, ya' know!?!
RAW, October 1991

And the tunes [on Use Your Illusion I & II] are cool, you know? I’m even singing on one. [...] On Dust N’ Bones. It’s a part where I’m singing on – and I don’t sing (laughs). But it was a song that me and Izzy actually wrote the lyrics together for, and when that part came up, when I wrote it, I sang it. So I sang it on the record and I sing it live, too. So I have that new responsibility, right? They’re trying to put tea out on stage for me and I’m like, “Screw that” (laughs). I can’t get to the tea, let alone drink it, you know?
