Blitzen Trapper – THIRSTY MAN lyrics

I've been driving all night
On a road to nowhere
With the devils convoy, black smoke upon my tracks
Girl, I hardly knew you
But I could never fool you
You was always sitting still
While the world raced to its grave

When the morning breaks
I've been driving wide awake
Cause I've been running so long
Can't recall what it means to stay
Cause I let you slip away like water right through my hands
Oh baby, your love's like rain in a desert to a thirsty man
Thirsty man

You know I've seen the mountains
And the flatlands too
I've seen all these city streets
But I still go out searching for you
Now in the captain's chamber
There's a ball and chain
You can run for a million miles but you'll never outrun your name

When the morning breaks
I've been driving wide awake
Cause I've been running so long
I can't recall what it means to stay

And all the children sing
And all the old men sing
It's better to love and lose
Than to gain a world on a string

Cause I let you slip away
Like water right through my hands
Oh baby, your love's like rain in a desert to a thirsty man
Yeah, thirsty man

When the morning breaks
I've been driving wide awake
Cause I've been running so long
Can't recall what it means to stay
Cause I let you slip away like water right through my hands
Oh honey, your love's like rain in a desert to a thirsty man
Yeah, thirsty man
