lyrics

Drunk Tank

He’s got the wife and the house and the car
He’s got the wife and the house and the car
Roll up his sleeves; you can hardly see his scars
Still feels like he ain’t come so very far

He gotta haircut and bought some new shoes
He gotta haircut and bought some new shoes
Filled his belly with the low-hanging fruit
Can’t keep out the cold, gravestone blues

Chorus
Take him down to the drunk tank baby
Save him a seat at the Lowland Games
Give him a drink from the willow spring (‘cause he needsa)
Patch of blue in this sky full of rain

Got the blueprints for a new technology
Got the blueprints for a new technology
Makin’ plans for the life in front of me
Still makin’ sense of everything I left behind me

People mean and stupid, I can’t abide
People mean and stupid, I can’t abide
Sometimes I’m mean and stupid, I can’t hide it
Like when I cut you quick, try and deny it.

Chorus

Bridge
We’ll rope a goat and sip some wine
Plant some seeds in the pale moonshine
Sweat your prayers and pray your songs
A morning glory never lasts too long

Read in the good book about the Pearly Gates
Read in the good book about the Pearly Gates
I don’t know if I can ever change my fate
But I’m hoping they’ll be open just the same (for me)

Chorus
