lines on the mirror, mississippi mud a gospel rain storm, a nashville flood if we all get right, what’s left to choose? jesus gonna show us what we got to lose thou shalt not, but they probably will if it comes in a powder or pretty little pill you got the corporation now still on your back until they turn around and sell the slack there’s a pretty little girl scared to come back home a brand new habit, the rest all gone a kid from out in kansas signed his x in blood barely ankle deep in the nashville flood now that’s everything you want; what else you need? besides some red letter scripture, some bathtub speed keep thinking that stuff’s gonna save your soul 500,000 down, one more to go so go sing another song about your country roots something about a river or thousand dollar boots you sell ‘em all that stuff, if it makes you feel good they can dive head first in the nashville flood so now you’re living in a hotel, rural route 5 with a couple old friends, just barely alive the habit’s here to stay, money’s all gone you’re way too proud to come back home you got a rose tattooed where her name used to be the money ain’t for nothing, the chicks ain’t free make your folks real proud, son, just like you should wash it all away in the nashville flood

got no one to blame you see fever got a hold of me went out west to strike some gold the road was long, the trail was hard slept out underneath the stars i made creede before the snow i know there’s gold up in the hills gonna turn them into dollar bills or jacob randall carter ain’t my name in time the only thing i owned was a worn out pick and a back that’s bowed and an empty hole they call a mine i packed it up and sold the rights headed out to telluride picked up work on that rail line the days were long, the nights were cold that rail was shipping out that gold soon enough they’re all gonna know my name my buddy ray helped build the pass dynamite from his own stash buried deep between the ties we partnered up and ran the lines two vantage points above the pines primed that cap and bid our time when that last train comes around the bend it will be too late to comprehend i’ll be there to gather what remains sheriff boyd caught wind of me wrangled up some deputies they lit out the break of day i can’t recall the day too well put me here in this dark cell never made my getaway i really don’t know what went wrong but that fever’s like a siren song sunday morning is my hanging day when they hang me from that white oak tree, i hope the town shows up to see every single one’s gonna know my name every single one’s gonna know my name

granddaddy was a rambler just like me eunice calmed him down when he was 23 every day hunting those blue ridge hills his folks said hunting won’t pay the bills killed himself a bear, hung his head on the wall eunice let him do it, didn’t like it at all starts those way up nights with those low down days lord please bless this house that jumps, sings, and prays every little chance the story got told the bear got mean, the young man got old eunice couldn’t help but sit back and grin when he’d talk about killing that bear again they say when good things come they come in threes and good things always stop to say thanks and please proud and strong, set me on his knee someday son you’ll kill a bear like me the hope, the sweat, the climb and the fall and the bear looks kinda cool hanging on your wall this highway’s just as dark as those blue ridge hills hunting still won’t last or pay the bills every little chance, every little win the old man laughs, eunice just grins the hope, the sweat, the climb and the fair for the love, for the kids, for eunice and the bear

can we settle for hopeful? could you hope for the same? like there was one last honest soul with daddy’s last name i can’t remember if it’s a memory or a dream but i hope it burns slow like kerosene can we hang on forgiveness? find something to blame like that girl just south of PA with no last name her eyes shine bright now were they blue; were they green? i can see ‘em burn slow like kerosene living out in redemption send my stuff through the mail there’s an old friend out here that wishes you well i am almost certain it’s a memory, not a dream cause i can feel it hurt slow like kerosene hope it burns slow like kerosene…

shoulda seen it coming, shoulda drawn the line shoulda felt it coming for me this time it’s hard to fill the days when the days don’t feel the proof’s in the pleasure, the pleasure’s in the pill watch you pour in all sticky and thin with the lies that never really meant to hurt, i guess here’s to showing up with no makeup for the folks who’ve never seen you in last night’s dress shoulda known better, shoulda learned from this shoulda learned to settle for things i’ve missed probably never see it till i’ve seen it through it’s worse for me when it’s better for you guess we both want something for nothing guess we both want it all for free guess we’ll all learn to settle for something for me shoulda seen it coming, shoulda drawn the line shoulda felt it coming for me this time it’s hard to fill the days when the days don’t feel the proof’s in the pleasure, the pleasure’s in the pill

guess i never really wrote a love song guess i never really had to try guess that’s why it’s taken me so long guess in time we’ll let it go by just to make myself feel better just to keep me safe and sound if i’m ever gonna get it right guess it’ll be this time around in a way it moves a lot faster in a way it seems so slow any way that we try and cling to any way we let it all go so here’s a song that your world can sing to here’s a song to carry in your heart here’s the thing to keep us all together when we’re a thousand miles apart
