You keep your distance, I'll keep mine

Away, away now
No I won't fail now
To meet you in some half way
I hear the river running
Man, it's a humming
One thousand miles downstream

Chorus:
Falling star
In my window, you look so right
Falling star
You keep your distance, I'll keep mine

Yeah money to buy now
I paid in hard work
I'll be your young fool
A white flash of daylight
Shoot up the sky high
White bold from the blue

(chorus)

Oh, falling star (*3)
You keep your distance, I'll keep mine

Away, away now
No I won't fail now
To meet you in some half way
I hear the engine whisper
Man, it's a running
Come on let's get on our way

(chorus)

Oh, falling star (*3)
You keep your distance, I'll keep mine

Yeah,(chorus)

(verse 2)

(chorus)

Oh, falling star (*3)
You keep your distance, I'll keep mine (*3)

. . .


It's a tried and true love, not the jealous kind
It's a black and blue love
Honey, where ya been since ya been mine?

Chorus:
Tried and true love
Tried and true love

It's a daylight moonshine, not the night light kind
It's a tried and true love
Honey, where ya been since ya been mine?

(chorus) * 2

(verse 2)

(chorus) *2

Better talk the tomahawk talk
Burn a tattoo on your chest
Everything is so perfect
Everything's real high class
Just like a crazy baptist
Chasing til the afternoon
Oh, I caught hatchet on hiawatha avenue

Chorus:
Let the critics wonder
Let the critics talk
Don't the critics know what it's all about?
Don't the critics know what it's all about?

Let them talk their tomahawk talk
Burn a tattoo on your chest
Everything is so perfect
Everything's real high class

(chorus)

Let the Last Night be the Longest (Lonesome Morning)

[No lyrics]

. . .


Behind bars
The color of the sun will break this heart of mine
Behind bars
Midnight in a jail, nothing seems right
And I know the shame you suffered
The night I held you tight
Behind bars
I know what it means to stumble down and fall

These prison walls is real
You have built around my love
Kept for dying
I climb the stairs to my room
Alone to find your memory there to haunt me
Behind bars
The color of the sun will break this heart of mine

And I know the shame you suffered
The night I held you tight
Behind bars
Midnight in a jail, nothing seems right

(verse 2)

. . .


Yeah
I rode the rock'n'rockets, running into deadwood town
Didn't have much money to lay my head down
Her momma came walking down the street
Carrying the words on a string

Chorus:
So I sat myself right down, ordered some sweet cherry pie
I had a mighty fine time in deadwood
Tasting sweet cherry pie

Yeah
Used to pull the young, must be the waterloo
All I have to say is, "honey, I won't sly to you"
I got a job hit the gold mine from nine to five

(chorus)

Yeah
There's two bits in the gas tank, I'm smoking big cigars
Didn't have too much money so I started stealing cars
Sheriff came walking down the street
Looks like a hard time in the can

(chorus)

. . .


The liquor store came first
And drove my baby from my arms
It was all a game that led me down that road
The liquor store came first

The liquor store came first
And poured my money down the drain
It was all a game that led me down that road
The liquor store came first

Chorus:
I know where to find my booze when I need some
Down at the dark end of the street

(verse 1)

(chorus)

(verse 1)

. . .


Yeah, some is good and some is bad
Brother keep your faith on hand

Chorus:
On every side
On each street corner you will find
There are people in this place on every side

There's a baptist ministry in the church yard down the street

(chorus)

Bridge:
Hey, do you know what you're doing tonite, honey?
Hey, do you know what to do?
Yeah I say, do you know what you're doing tonite, darling?
Hey do you know what to do?

Yes there's a barmaid on your sleeve
Talking dirty and drinking free

(chorus)

(bridge)

(verse 1)

(chorus)
Yes there are people in this place on every side

. . .


There's candles at each table
Smoke fills the cracks
Honey, I stopped in to drink
Tomorrow I'll be back
I'll bet she thinks the world of me
She's walking out the door
Misery tavern, it's the only place I know

I tried to get along somehow
Start loving someone new
Each time I make a start
I'm right back in that room
I'll sober up long enough to find my way back in
Misery tavern, it's the only place I know
Misery tavern, tonight I'll go down slow
Misery tavern, it's the only place I know

(verse 1)
Misery tavern, tonight I'll go down slow
Misery tavern, it's the only place I know

. . .


Walk around the world
Feel the destruction
I read all about it
I know all the headlines
And I say to myself, "what a lucky man!
Glad I'm alive, I can go where I can"

Chorus:
I'm not in prison
I'm not in prison
I'm not in prison
No, I'm not in prison

Walked around in the world
What I see there?
I see all the trash lying there in the field now
And I say to myself, "what a lucky man!
Glad I'm alive, I can go where I can"

(chorus)

And I say to myself, "what a lucky man!
Glad I'm alive, I can go where I can"

(chorus) *2

. . .


I don't have to warn ya
Black clouds are coming
Go out, get a hand gun
Walk the streets of houston
Headlines to the west
Skylines falling down

I walked out this morning
My moose skin was jiving
I don't have to warn ya
Black clouds are coming
Headlines to the west
Skylines falling down

Chorus:
People getting ready
Yeah, people getting ready
To meet the king of kings
To meet the king of kings

Out on the main line
There's a pitch black highway
The city after midnight
Is up around the next bend
Sunrise in the east
Cities burning down
(I feel burned down now)

(chorus)

(verse 1)
(I see falling down now)

(chorus)
(I got to go now)

(chorus)

. . .


Everybody's talking about my baby
They say she's half blind
Everybody's talking about my baby
They say she's half blind

Chorus:
It's been a good long time
And now I'm long gone
It's been a good long time
And now I'm long gone
And still this heartache lingers on

I miss you in dreams I do remember
Dark shadows drift across my room
I miss you in dreams I do remember
Dark shadows drift across my room

(chorus) *2

(verse 2)

(chorus)
And still this heartache lingers on
And on and on and on and on
And still this heartache lingers on

You keep roll it on out, keep rolling, rolling on
Yeah, you keep roll it on out, keep rolling, rolling on
And still this heartache lingers on

(chorus)

. . .


Yeah, up there's a sixpack on the dashboard tonight
I get lonesome most of the time
I get to thinking about you most of the time

Yeah, there's some heartache in this beer joint tonight
I get lonesome most of the time
I get to thinking about you most all the time

Chorus:
A straight face can't hide *4

(verse 1)

(chorus) *2
