Blitzen Trapper – Fletcher lyrics

Oh mama I been talkin' to those western stars
They give me comfort at night, right lyin' in the back of the car
And I can see your face in the place that I go when I'm there
Me and Jimmy and the boys runnin' dark up in the mountain air, yeah

Got a couple more runs 'til the sun's comin' up in the east
Ole Fletcher's in the car drinkin' whiskey from a jar through his teeth
Jimmy ain't back but his tracks lead up into the trees
I guess there ain't nothin' for it but to drive on up and see what they see

So don't you let old Fletcher take the wheel tonight
His heart's grown cold and this old dirt road
Runs rough and ragged to a terrible height
Don't you let old Fletcher take the wheel tonight
There ain't much to live for
But there's this woman and she's got me feelin' pretty alright
And lovin' oh lord can make me change my ways
So won't you let me live another day
Guess I'd like to live another day

Old Fletcher's been drinking with a pistol and he's itching to play
Sayin' man I had this woman she was livin' at the mouth of the bay
But she found me out and now she sees a man who wears these suits
I seen him walkin' his dog down by the company in brand new boots

So don't you let old Fletcher take the wheel tonight
His heart's grown cold and this old dirt road
Runs rough and ragged to a terrible height
Don't you let old Fletcher take the wheel tonight
There ain't much to live for
But there's this woman and she's got me feelin' pretty alright
And lovin' oh lord can make me change my ways
So won't you let me live another day
Guess I'd like to live another day

Oh mama I've been talkin' to those western stars
They give me comfort at night, right lyin' in the back of the car
And I can see your face in the place that I go when I'm there
Me and Jimmy and the boys runnin' dark up in the mountain air, yeah

    I just watched the movie "Kid Cannabis" and it was about these dudes from the Pacific NW (around where BT are from) that would do runs into Canada through the forest to pick up marijuana. It totally reminded me of this song. Not sure if it's based on it but I'm thinking that they're going up into the mountains perhaps to harvest pot. Fletcher's woman found out about it and left him. "She found me out and now she sees a man who wears a suit." Now he's bitter and drinking hard and the singer is concerned that he might go off the dangerous logging road that takes them to where they grow.
