I heard they cleaned the wreck outside a Slidell, just before the dawn. I heard five people got murdered by a drunk woman talking on her cell phone. I got drunk last night in slidell, waiting on the clean up crew. I've been on the road for fifteen days, waiting just to get home to you.

Just before the dawn, you hear the rooster crow. Just before the dawn, Im gonna rise up rise up slow.

Nighttime driving is like a dream. Hallucinations rise up from the road. It's lonesome at five am and the white line becomes your soul. Just as the sun begins to rise, the highway is foggy as hell. And all the musicians are sleeping. You ain't got nothin but yourself.

Just before the dawn, you hear the rooster crow. Just before the dawn, I'm gonna rise up rise up slow.

I heard they cleaned up the wreck outside a Slidell, just before I passed through. I've been sitting for five hours on this barstool. Waiting and thinkin 'bout you
