Steve Earle – Calico County lyrics

Have a case of cold pill
Soaking in a milk tub
Hydrochloric acid, I find...
Careful not to get any on you when you shave it up
Pass away with cook it up in Calico County
Calico County

Born in a double white
Hide behind the counter
Momma never told me why daddy didn’t live with us
Only teacher I had is climbing on a Wrison bus
... On his back seat,
Calico County
Calico County

My little brother Bubba
Stole a Coca Cola truck
Drove it to the cemetery, Bubba doesn’t give a fuck
Thirteen tombstones... On the bus
Ain’t that much money,
Calico County
Calico County

Outta here someday,
Ain’t that what I used to say?
... Isn’t gonna have to stay
Friday night, don’t fight
Soaking on a miff top
Till I live or down or die
Calico county,
Calico County
Calico County
