The Color Red

Blood Moon of a neon sign
You've got no good on your mind
And I hear the color red
I saw your neighbor smiling there
In an Adirondak chair
And I hear the color red

I don't blame you but what he's taken
Just ain't worth his life, hallelujah
I can't let you kill a man tonight

And you're standing on the edge
Of the color red

.45 on the shotgun seat
Cold steel just a-needing heat
And I hear the color red
Traitor's kiss on an innocent cheek
Stole the land from beneath your feet
And I hear the color red

I don't blame you, but what he's taken
Just ain't worth his life, hallelujah
I can't let you kill a man tonight
When you think you've lost it all
You don't have far to fall
To the color red

I hear the color red

Down at the coffee shop, hear the man talking
He pats you on the back while he's picking your pocket
I hear the color red
Blood in the water, big red tractor
Auctioneer chants like a bad man's laughter
I hear the color red

And I know sometimes, a brother needs a helping hand
It may be a sin, but I'm sure the Lord will understand
Why I had to steal your gun

I don't blame you, but what he's taken
Just ain't worth his life, hallelujah
I can't let you go out there tonight
'Cause I'm all that you have left
And you're standing on the edge
Of the color red

The color red
The color red
The color red
