Dallas After Midnight
I pulled into the alley behind the liquor store
turned out the lights, left the motor runnin’ opened up the door,
I flashed a grin and said, Jack this is gonna be a piece of cake,
later tonight we’ll head down to the Last Stand, split up the take.
Sittin’ there in the darkness, I take a drink of wine,
Feel’n high and fast and loose, so right
wait for the rush to hit me and it feels so fine.
Then I think of somethin’ never realized,
if I get shot tonight, I ain't never been baptized.
Dust Of The Chase
I come down from Oklahoma with a pistol in my boot
A pair of dice, a deck of cards and a bible in my suit
I come her as the cause of tears, I am a crying shame
Seven stud or eternal blood, just looking for a game
I double crossed the State of Texas and they give me a little time
I taught myself to doublecut the cards and hold scriptures in my mind
I learned to love the tumblin dice and to believe the word
Tombstones or rolling bones, beats anything I ever heard.
Rock And Roll Gypsies
To the faraway places of France
Of the people and the places I've been
I'll sing you a song and I won't keep you long
For the tambourine's playin'
And the carnival's callin' me home
And the rock and roll gypsies are ridin' tonight
On the carnival strips they'll stay
And the golden eyrie's will laugh at the light
'Cause life is more than a play
Torn In Two
There's a tattoo on my shoulder
There's a story under my skin
Put there to remind me
Of the shape you left me in
I took the Ford 'cause it was rainin'
I went down Chipper Wall road
I put it out from the window
Like a thousand fools before
