LETTERS | too skinny (2023)

Well, you're in trouble, down to the last penny, and you want another handout again.

But we've been there before and there's more to come if I don't say this is the end

This was your last chance, this was your last chance

This was your last last chance, I'm tired of this dance and I can't take it anymore.

Well I said it before, the last time you walked through that door, but this time you pushed me too far.

And I don't care when you launch your next attack, because this time I definitely mean it.

This was your last chance, this was your last chance

This was your last last chance, I'm tired of this dance and I can't take it anymore.

Well, you tell everyone, they treat you so bad and they all do you wrong.

Why don't you look in the mirror again? Maybe you just want to change your music.

This was your last chance, this was your last chance

This was your last last chance, I'm tired of this dance and I can't take it anymore.

Well I said it before, the last time you walked out the door, but this time you pushed me too far.

And I don't care when you launch your next attack, because this time I definitely mean it.

This was your last chance, this was your last chance

This was your last last chance, I'm tired of this dance and I can't take it anymore.

Repeat

This was your last chance, this was your last chance

Verso 1:

I woke up to the blues this morning

I wake up to the blues everyday

My wife, let the healing come

My wife makes sure the cure comes to me

There's no dust to keep me going

No pill will dig my grave

i found a better way

My lover will get my gun and

envélveme naturally

coro:

call the doctor

a chemical killed me

call the doctor

There's only one doctor I'm going to see.

she got the cure

Verso 2:

I feel this woman like thunder

If she gets the pressure and puts me down

oh my love come down

When she pushes him back and throws him to the ground

She has the cure ready

I wake up blue everyday

My lover will take my gun and beat me naturally.

hours

Only

hours

Verso 3:

I woke up to the blues this morning

I wake up to the blues everyday

And when I walk in, it's a tightrope baby

I bleed blue until you come to me

You are disturbing me?

My love will take my gun and naturally blow me up

Like Marilyn, who turns out to be John F. Kennedy

I have the blues and she has the cure

sessions x2

hostage to the devil

Written by Timothy Langford

When I was young God said I would give you this gift

But you must use it wisely, you must remain true to this path.

The devil will try to trick you and make you slip

I made my first mistake looking for a shortcut

coro

I should have seen this coming, but I was just a fool

I sold my soul, my wife and my family too

Now I'm hostage to the devil, he wants ransom for my sins,

God please help me with the mess I'm in

For

I should have listened better, I know I was warned

The good Lord tried to tell me to protect my heart from harm.

But the devil deceived me, deceived me so easily

I sold my soul and fell to my knees

coro

Only

For

Then I heard a voice whispering in my ear

All is not lost son, I know all the devil's tricks.

The key to your salvation is in your heart

You have to forgive yourself, that's where you start

coro

Only

verso 1

Oh mama, where did I go wrong?

My relentless heart will be destroyed

So roll up the tape, take it line by line

And I'll give you one shot at a time

I bet everything on black and I bet bad

Down there where I belong

coro

reckless

I am relentless

Down there where I belong

towards 2

Another hard lesson on a prison floor

Let me go, I'm back for more

I can't say they didn't warn me

I only learned when I had to bleed

Red line, visor stop, blue suede shoes

Cocaine freight train lights my fuse

hours

around 3

Oh daddy I have you to thank

To educate me in rhythm and blues

If you told me once, you told me twice

Sometimes you lose when you roll the dice

Kiss the sky on the big road

coro

Come on, they'll all have us a while

Let's rock all night until we lose our minds

I can't stop now cause we're on a roll

We won't stop until the rooster crows

coro

We gotta keep the party going

We gotta keep the party going

We gotta keep the party going all night

The old Tom Murphy is back

Shakey stands in the corner and shakes his head.

Take off your shoes, you've got nothing to lose
Taildragger put them on Mean Town Blues

coro

Look at Joey having too much fun

And Uncle Buck calls everybody

Brother Curt will blow up with the band

We do the Stumptown boogie with all our fans

coro

keep the party going, keep the party going

keep the party going, keep the party going

keep the party going, keep the party going

continue the party

I seem to hear, Sunnyland's lonely thump

I seem to hear, Sunnyland's lonely thump

Well, she would just fly away, she won't come back

Feeling bad this morning, I feel like crying

Feeling bad this morning, I feel like crying

Well my baby took the train and didn't even say goodbye

Got a letter from my baby saying she's coming home

Got a letter from my baby saying she's coming home

Well I'm sitting here waiting, I hope it won't be long

I seem to hear, Sunnyland's lonely thump

I seem to hear, Sunnyland's lonely thump

Well, she would just fly away, she won't come back

The devil will take my clear shot

The devil will reap my soul

The devil will take my clear shot

if i don't let you go

The devil will look like an angel

The devil will wear my ring

The devil becomes my biggest fan.

In the heart of every song I sing

The devil will take my money

The devil will make me look old

The devil will give me drugs in the morning

The devil comes after my soul

Or rhythm takes me sideways

The rhythm will bring me down

Rhythm takes me everywhere

The rhythm won't let me go

The devil will take my clear shot

The devil will reap my soul

The devil will take my clear shot

if i don't let you go

Verso 1:

Two young brothers play in the streets

Dreams of living in L.A. while mom loses sleep

When the snake calls with rhythm and brandy

All American dreams are born to lose

Glossy white hands on razor blade

The platinum addict is made through smoke and mirrors

coro

There's a trigger that takes lives after lives

In the corner of the liquor store

Like a rat, creating disease

bleeding on the ghetto floor

The first time you did this, it was just for fun.

But the second time it didn't feel as strong.

So you loaded your gun for another fix

In Russian roulette, however, load all six

Verso 2:

The preacher meets the camel who has to fight a war

When the two younger brothers take the stage.

One picks up the mic and the other tightens the strings

As they close their eyes and act out the scenes

As the spotlight falls on the Viper Room stage

The platinum addict is made through smoke and mirrors

coro

Now wildfire burns in those hungry eyes

From the passionate thrill of a new high

It's the ecstasy and the touch of the skin

Just a poisonous kiss on the lips of sin

Reality and the lines of the stage disappear

Through smoke and mirrors, the platinum addict becomes

coro

Verso 3:

Gold and platinum plaques line the wall

As big brother walks down the aisle

Preacher nails himself to the foot of the bed

Mom cries and Dad hangs his head.

Their broken hearts are filled with rage

As they clung to their son's hand, they raised

How God and the Devil Face Each Other

The platinum addict is annihilated by smoke and mirrors

verso 1

you played the hand

I thought you would never play

Now you carry the mark

Of the words I thought you'd never say

All the lies I find in front of me

burn me with rage

I read my story line by line

without mentioning my name

Damn the trust I place in you

And damn this my fault

The betrayal of my trust is certainly not my fault.

coro:

I was tempted by your money

And seduced by your wine

I tried your wives

This time I think I'll go with my pride

Verso 2:

Well I rolled the dice

and i paid the price

because everyone knows

snake eyes never lie

Damn the trust I place in you

you know what happens every time

The betrayal of my trust is definitely not my fault.

coro

Only

coro

Vampire:

And screw the lies

damn the lies

tempted for your money

and seduce with your wine

I tried your wives

How to stay calm when everything is so crazy

Wake up in the morning just to eat another spoonful of dirt.

Every day is like the Truman Show, people don't know what to believe anymore

Say what I think for what it's worth

coro

Preaching to enemies to keep you apart

Do your best to keep us apart

can someone tell me what you think about this

Acting like a thug because you think you're high class

Make all your gang friends look out for you

As long as you have the Force, grab whatever you can and look down from your ivory tower.

Invent as you go, and that's a natural occurrence

coro

Let the swamp dry up, but keep growing

The smell envelops us and we all get sicker

All the lies you believe, I'm telling you, man, it's all going to hell

Brown Noser punches you in the back while you spout your heroine

coro

What do you think

What do you think

Here I am trapped in this lonely motel room

Think of all the things I would say to you

I want to pick up the phone and call you, but right now you'd be sleeping.

And I would hold you in my arms, but you're half a world away

I don't mean to sound like a lovesick idiot, but now I am.

There's a look in your eyes that erases all my problems

You are the type of woman that lights up the room with just a smile.

And I would hold you in my arms, but you're half a world away

Ponte:

Some say love at first sight is just a fantasy

But the first time I saw you I knew it was true

Somehow I wanted to make you mine

And I can feel you in my heart, but now I'm so blue

I think of all the good times and have to smile

And we'll have so much more if I have it my way

We've been through a million miles of life's mess

And I would kiss your sweet lips, but you're half a world away

,

When this bad old world starts to get you down

And you climb this mountain step by step

believe in yourself never give up

Keep marching until you reach the top

Life is a balance between pleasure and pain.

Love and loss and wisdom gained

continue as best you can

It doesn't matter if you are a woman or a man

Everyone will get the blues sometimes

Let's climb this mountain step by step

Well I'm feeling low and I want to give up

The mountain I'm climbing doesn't seem to have a peak

I give all I have but it's never enough

My back is against the wall and I'm still out of luck

Life is a balance between pleasure and pain.

Love and loss and wisdom gained

continue as best you can

It doesn't matter if you are a woman or a man

Everyone will get the blues sometimes

Let's climb this mountain step by step

But this bad old world won't bring me down

And I climbed that mountain step by step

I believed in myself and never gave up

You can't bring me down, I made it to the top

Life is a balance between pleasure and pain.

Love and loss and wisdom gained

continue as best you can

It doesn't matter if you are a woman or a man

Everyone will get the blues sometimes

Let's climb this mountain step by step

Anger, anger is my shadow, worries haunt me

go away problems leave me alone

don't come knocking on my door

I paid my dues, you owe me nothing

I have no debts

When happiness comes, happiness comes to me

The dirty old devil tries to steal everything.

You can't steal my happiness you see

Better times will rain down on me

A fortune teller told me, but it must have taken a long time

It took too long

Anger, anger is my shadow, worries haunt me

go away problems leave me alone

don't come knocking on my door

I paid my dues, you owe me nothing

I have no debts

I give up and try to talk to you

When I start talking you just walk away

Is it me, is it you? That's exactly what people are doing right now.

I want to know, I want to know

I have stories to tell, stories that will blow your mind

I got stories to tell, if you just take the time, just take the time

To hear me, listen to me

I speak, then you speak

When I start talking you just run into my mouth

Is it you, is it me, is it just our society?

I want to know, I want to know

repeat the chorus

Treat me but don't tell me

I have stories to tell until the lights go out

Is it me, is it you? That's exactly what people are doing right now.

I want to know, I want to know

repeat the chorus

One stroke for pleasure, two strokes for pain
I load the gun, turn the wheel and let it ring
And I dive deep, deep into a wishing well, wishing well
Mama warned me about a broken white line
But I wiped the Bible off the table and dropped the coin.
While I'm digging deep, and I don't say that

coro:
And it goes straight down
It's not a lie, every dream dies
At the end of a dashed white line

It's written in pages I've read.
touch my head
While I'm digging deep, and I don't say that
With every wrong turn and every lie told
Everyone knows that I don't age
While I'm digging deep and I'm not saying

Repeat chorus:

Only

Repeat chorus:

One stroke for pleasure, two strokes for pain
I load the gun, turn the wheel and let it ring
While I'm digging deep, and I don't say that

Repeat chorus:

Well I know you didn't mean what you said

But I can't get it out of my head

I know you didn't mean what you said

You didn't play sticks and stones

But words have their own pain

Like a bullet, like a bullet hitting bone

a lot on your plate

It might have been my fault, I don't know

I know your heart hurts

Pain turns to anger, I know you didn't mean what you said

Well I wish I could put you at ease

But I feel like I'm wasting time

Like the last grains of sand slipping through an hourglass

I know you didn't mean what you said

But I can't get it out of my head

I know you didn't mean what you said

This really isn't about us

Just a bunch of other people's stuff messing with our heads

It's blowing like a storm

Drains the rain and leaves you cold as a hurricane

You didn't play sticks and stones

But words have their own pain

Like a bullet, like a bullet hitting bone

I know you didn't mean what you said

But I can't get it out of my head

I know you didn't mean what you said

I know you didn't mean what you said

I know you didn't mean what you said

I know you didn't mean what you said

I'm tired of holding the bag while everyone else gets away with it

I just want to run away and start living again.

We gave it all we got

But you keep sucking that straw

They still don't realize there's nothing left to drink

We can run, we don't have to stay

Let's just leave, we can leave right away

We can run away, we don't have to play

You stupid game, we can leave this town now.

I won't stand and watch you hit the ground on your high horse

It's not that we don't care, maybe we care too much

time to do it yourself

Then I think we should leave you alone.

Before we run out of time and/or lose our minds

We can run, we don't have to stay

Let's just leave, we can leave right away

We can run away, we don't have to play

You stupid game, we can leave this town now.

You don't care who you kill

you have an evil spirit

i could be your best friend

you have an evil spirit

you smile in his face

While you plan your shame

waiting for your opportunity

To kick them while they're on the ground

you have an evil spirit

Look behind you at the damage you've done

you have an evil spirit

You justify all your lies

you have an evil spirit

Preach as if you were sanctified

you have an evil spirit

you smile in his face

While you plan your shame

looking for your opportunity

To kick them while they're on the ground

you have an evil spirit

Look behind you at the damage you've done

you have an evil spirit

You love to see them bleed

you have an evil spirit

After you get what you need

you have an evil spirit

Well, you smile on his face.

While you plan your shame

waiting for your opportunity

To kick them while they're on the ground

you have an evil spirit

Look behind you at the damage you've done

Look behind you at the damage you've done

A blood moon rises

and it burns red

A blood moon rises

and it burns red

A blood moon rises

Now your light will shine

you waited so long

For these bad times to pass

leave everything behind

Never look back

A blood moon rises

Now your light will shine

There's a blood moon rising

and it burns red

The bad times are behind

Never look back

A blood moon rises

Now your light will shine

A blood moon rises

Now your light will shine

Keep trying to catch up

Reelin is a little far from here

Doubt does not lose its way

I won't let life pass me by

miles calculations

trials and tribulations

But never give up the fight

coro

Trying to ride those twisted rails

Carry on with love and faith

For the dreams I haven't lived yet

Paint samples have seen it all.

Winding lanes and morning fog

To make it work as well as possible

Cellar music is all the rage in the van

miles calculations

trials and tribulations

But never give up the fight

repeat the chorus

This is not just a game for young men.

Years of wisdom running through my brain

Life's songs play in my head

Maybe I'll get lucky before I die

miles calculations

trials and tribulations

But never give up the fight

Repeat chorus 2 times

Said I'd pick her up at seven, now we're leaving at eleven

I know I shouldn't complain because I'm very handsome

I say we better do this, she said she needed a minute

Brother keep calm is the golden rule

Come on, goon, goon, goon, go your way

Come on, goon, goon, goon, go your way

follow your path

She's my little cup, but I wish she would hurry up

I waited half the night and I don't want to start a fight

But I've been drinking and I'm thinking, I'm thinking

Gotta sober up if we make it

Come on, goon, goon, goon, go your way

Come on, goon, goon, goon, go your way

follow your path

Well I want to get in shape but she wouldn't mind

You never rush a woman because she knows you're just her bitch

But you'll turn heads in these Armani threads

Will be forgotten when all is done and said

Come on, goon, goon, goon, go your way

Come on, goon, goon, goon, go your way

Charme, charme, charme, charme

follow your path

When I met the gypsy, she looked me in the eyes

Come with me, he said with a smile.

My heart screamed, she's the one

My body froze and I knew I couldn't run

I fell in love with the gypsy

she took my breath away

I fell in love with the gypsy

My life would change that day.

I fell in love with the gypsy

It wasn't hard to say that the gypsy had me bewitched

His eyes sparkled with color and light.

She had an aura that glowed so bright

A kind of beauty he had never seen before.

Somehow I knew she would save me

I fell in love with the gypsy

she took my breath away

I fell in love with the gypsy

My life would change that day.

I fell in love with the gypsy

It wasn't hard to say that the gypsy had me bewitched

She took me to a place I've never been

She pumped me full of coke and gin

Once there I knew I would never leave

I loved the gypsy

I fell in love with the gypsy

she took my breath away

I fell in love with the gypsy

My life would change that day.

I fell in love with the gypsy

It wasn't hard to say that the gypsy had me bewitched

Don't put my body on the cold cold ground

Don't put my body on the cold cold ground

Don't put my body on the cold cold ground

I don't want a wooden box wrapped around my bones

I don't want a wooden box wrapped around my bones

I don't want a wooden box wrapped around my bones

my sweet love i will wait for you

Find me and I will find you

my sweet love i will wait for you

Find me and I will find you

Burn my body, release my ashes

Burn my body, release my ashes

Burn my body, release my ashes

Don't put my body on the cold cold ground

Don't put my body on the cold cold ground

Don't put my body on the cold cold ground

It seems like a dream what you say to me what you say to me

It seems like a dream what you say to me, what you say to me

seems litDream seems like dream what you tell me

I can't believe that you came for me, that you came for me

I can't believe that you came for me, that you came for me

I can't believe you came for me.

I'm not ready for the reaper so don't knock on my door

I still have a lot to live for because I'm not walking your death ground

I have an angel shining his light, shining down on me

I have an angel shining his light, shining down on me

She said I won't let you go, I won't let you go

unless it's with me

She said I won't let you go, I won't let you go

unless it's with me

She said I won't let you go, I won't let you go

unless it's with me

I will write a letter to my friends

I'm going to write a letter to my friends

Tell them thank you friends for thinking of me

Yes you helped me when I was down

Could have been six feet under

Yes you helped me when I was down

Could have been six feet under

thank you friends for thinking of me

Now let's have a party and everybody's invited

Let's have fun, it's gonna be a riot

Now let's have a party and everybody's invited

Let's have fun, it's gonna be a riot

Thanks for the love, the love that shines on me

Yeah, thanks for the love, the love you shine on me

I want to thank you friends for thinking of me

I want to thank you friends for thinking of me

I've traveled all my life and I've got the lines on how

I bust my ass, get my money, now you wanna mess with my dough

But it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright

'Cause sometimes the good guys win, sometimes the good guys win

I got crooked fingers and a bad back and I've done ten thousand shows

Don't blame me when things don't go well, because you know there's going to be a fight.

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright

'Cause sometimes the good guys win, sometimes the good guys win

Don't mess with me, I think you told me the big guns are coming

It sure ain't no fun looking at a gun, this time the good guys win

Don't mess with me, I think you told me the big guns are coming

It sure ain't no fun looking at a gun, this time the good guys win

Peace, love and understanding, I heard Elvis say

You could learn a thing or two to avoid some pain.

It's alright, yeah, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright

'Cause sometimes the good guys win, sometimes the good guys win

Yeah, sometimes the good guys win, sometimes the good guys win

Sometimes the good guys in the white hat win

Well I used to be a sinner and I liked it

Yes, I used to be a sinner and I liked it

I never meant to hurt anyone

I didn't care about heaven or hell

I would take my kicks and move on

So I washed my hands in muddy Mississippi

But this life of sin can't just be washed away

I'm doing my best to try and get in

But that filthy old devil left a stain on me

Women and whiskey and bad cocaine

Women and whiskey and bad cocaine

Pity the fool who got in my way

I would find a way to make her pay

More was always better, had to have it all

She trusts me with her big blue heart

Because she knows I won't break it

Her heart is glass and I know her past

And she tells me she feels her heart is safe at last

She trusts me with her big blue heart

She trusts me with her big blue heart

I feel shaky, a little unsure.

If I have what it takes to protect your heart

'Cause I was a fool, I've been a fool before

But she believes me when I say I'll never walk through that door

She trusts me with her big blue heart

She trusts me with her big blue heart

Well I know why your heart is so blue

And she told me that's why I gave you my heart

You know my heart is made of glass and you know my past

And it's good to know that my crystal blue heart is finally safe.

She trusts me with her big blue heart

She trusts me with her big blue heart

Every day is the same and the nights seem so long

I thought I knew something about loneliness but man I was so wrong

Heaven is crying since you left

Minutes feel like hours, hours feel like days

Everywhere I look, something reminds me of you

I can't hold back the tears and I feel like an idiot.

I try not to think about you but I can't stop thinking about you

This emptiness haunts me all day.

You said when I'm gone your heart will bleed like rain

Now the tables have turned and I know I know your pain

Well my heart can't take this loneliness when you're gone

Minutes feel like hours, hours feel like days

Clouds fill my head, I can't even think

Such misery and anguish can drive a sober man to drink

I feel like I'm dying when you leave

Minutes appear as hours, hours appear as days

If I had whiskey I would drink it all
Nobody to talk to except these dogs
I'm trying to talk about these blues
They look at me like I'm an idiot
Missing my wife, she's been gone for so long
Missing my wife, she's been gone for so long
Used to be so easy when whiskey was my friend
Used to be so easy when whiskey was my friend

Will she come back, I think so.
That's what she told me, maybe I'll wait
It feels like a prison within these walls
If I had a bottle I would drink it all
Missing my wife, she's been gone for so long
Missing my wife, she's been gone for so long
Used to be so easy when whiskey was my friend
Used to be so easy when whiskey was my friend

If I had whiskey I would drink it all
Nobody to talk to except these dogs
I'm trying to talk about these blues
They look at me like I'm an idiot
Missing my wife, she's been gone for so long
Missing my wife, she's been gone for so long
Missing my wife, she's been gone for so long
Used to be so easy when whiskey was my friend
Used to be so easy when whiskey was my friend

it was a dark road

For many years

But your light keeps shining

Even through the tears

all i know is

It's good to see you smile again

lose many

To use for one person

but you are a fighter

And girl I knew you would win

all i know is

It's good to see you smile again

i hope you know

Not alone

love surrounds you

let it flow in your heart

you think you're crazy

And me too

But you don't know

that madmen rule the world

all i know is

It's good to see you smile again

I hate to break it to you, honey, but there's more bad news.

The fox is in the henhouse and the cows are all loose.

It seems like everyday things have just begun

And the doctor who just called says he wants to get paid

Mama said I need some encouragement

Play me the song I like so much

But make it look happy so I can lose these blues

Yeah make it look happy and I'll roll with you

Sometimes life gets in the way

Why can't the sun shine every day?

Everyone needs someone to lean on sometimes

Every day I have to thank the Lord that I have you

coro

Only

Well that old Dickson didn't do what he said

And it looks like things are coming to a head

Both sides are better off drawing the shotgun.

Who needs a bunch of stupid lawyers, not me!

repeat the chorus

I can't find words for this feeling

Is this the beginning or the end?

This empty heart is too much to bear

nothing is the same when you're not

Why does love feel like pain?

Nothing but obsession crosses my mind

I don't want to feel like I want to be deaf

I couldn't take the pain if you broke my heart

If you fall in love, fall in love

Cupid shoots an arrow through your heart

We carved the letters into a tree

Forever it will be just you and me

The knife cuts deep and the arrow is pain

This is how I feel when you're gone

I don't want to feel like I want to be deaf

I couldn't take the pain if you broke my heart

If only I could live out my fantasy

All your love would be just for me

We never stray and cuss on the little finger

I know your crush rules when I'm not around

Cupid's arrow is here to stay

Love is only pain when you're gone

I don't want to feel like I want to be deaf

I couldn't take the pain if you broke my heart

man knocks on my door

Brother can you help me I'm hungry and cold

I wonder what to do

What does this man really want from you?

Fear and mistrust is what I feel

Why did this man come to me?

My house is warm, my belly is full

In my heart I know what to do

The new year is coming, I can't go away

From this stranger who crossed my path

How can I help you

Said man I hate to bother you

Times are tough and I've been working all day.

For a few dollars for one night.

I have nothing left to get something to eat.

It hurts my pride to ask you to do this

I myself have not worked for 44 days.

I had some money left that I saved

Let's both start the new year right

Thank you for the gift you gave me tonight.

Money is something we spend

But we can keep a good friend to the end

She once said I'll love you forever

A shiver ran down my spine.

I spent forever

the same thing happens every time

The blue sky turns to a nasty rain

Love is dragged through the mud again

i'm in over my head

My heart beats like drums

I have a really bad feeling

The shape of the blues coming

As soon as she says prove you love me

my mouth got dry

I was on the proving ground

at least a hundred times

If the wind isn't right, a man can fall short

Lie naked in front of the court

I'm so in, I know I'm going to suffer

I have a really bad feeling

The shape of the blues coming

she will let me call

your name in the dark

That's a pretty safe bet

A love like hers takes its toll

I haven't seen the worst yet

After my heart hits the guillotine

Will pawn my soul and grab it

I'm too far away

I know I'm going to wake up groggy.

I have a really bad feeling

The shape of the blues coming

The preacher is coming, the preacher is coming

The preacher comes with a bottle in hand.

a bottle in hand

Mr. Rudy, can't you help me? Please help me

Mr. Rudy, you don't want to help and I got down on my knees.

I got on my knees

The blues signed my name, the blues signed my name

Blues just signed my name and I'll never be the same

I will never be the same

So I drive along the Pactolis highway on the outskirts of town

Head towards Pactolis Highway, where the women can be found.

where to find women

Why they call you preacher son, they call you son

Why do they call you a preacher's son because I am

because i am a

So preacher come, preacher come

The preacher came with a bottle in his hand.

no bible in hand

a bottle in hand

a bottle in hand

The angels are back, the angels are back

The angels are back, back at my door

The angels whisper, whisper in my ear

It's time to go home, they don't need you here.

Everything will be fine, don't be afraid.

Love will surround you, they don't need you here

Your body is failing, failing now

Your soul will live, don't worry now

Leave this world now, let it slip away

You'll see them all again, let it go

The devil drinks his whiskey and Jesus drinks his wine
One is sinful, the other is divine
Now tell me what's the difference when they both get high

Mom and Dad smoke and now the kids do too.
If we make it a crime, who hurts who?
There's money in the streets, but so is the prison
Is it really a crime or a sin if you want to get high again?
You mind your own business, I'll mind mine, and Jesus and the devil can argue about who's wrong and who's right.

The devil drinks his whiskey and Jesus drinks his wine
One is sinful, the other is divine
Now tell me what's the difference when they both get high

I don't want to think about some things I've done

Bones in the closet make me walk

It could have been different, I had the choice

Do you want to blame someone for all this noise?

Word Salad, Brain Gumbo, Spodiodi Heart

Bad decisions have left their mark

Confessions don't help, accompany me forever

My lights are off so you can't see

All the demons that are still with me

On a moonlit night in the swamp with snakes and alligators, the hounds of hell chased my tail.

coro

I hear the hell hounds howling at the Mississippi moon, I never felt so damned, I hear the hell hounds howling at the Mississippi moon.

Well, I dreamed that I was running, I stopped to catch my breath and I could feel these demons behind me breathing in my throat.

Then I turned around and a shiver ran down my back and the devil looked me right in the eyes and said I'll get you.

Wiederholungschor

Then I saw a light and I felt very calm and I could hear God telling Satan to leave that boy alone.

Because I have my own plan and I need this man, so get back where you came from before I knock you out.
