Roads run by trainyards Ships sail past my heart I'll see you down on the tracks tonight You and your bottle of screw top wine Beautiful in our whiskey haze beautiful in our messy ways you told me once perfect's never good i held your hand as we gathered the wood lighting the fire where the cops don't come smoke in our hair smoke in our lungs the girls blow on empty jugs the boys beat on makeshift drums Roads run by train cars we're walkin out to the shipyard you hang your feet down off of the pier dancin in moonlight spillin your beer They go in boxcars two by two we sit by the fire drinkin our due songs rising up into the night the stars as our witness making it right foghorn blowing ghostly and true my voice singing only to you Roads run by trainyards we're shooting the moon with a deck of cards there's nothin we can't do tonight we're a tangle of laughter lost in the lights you take my hand but we dance alone the fire is dying. the strangers come. we're a family here in music and booze there's nothing here to ever lose
Leavin' 03:35
Writing this down Can't fucking sleep All I hear are doors closing all I hear is you keep Leavin Leavin Leavin The bed rattles without you It rattles without your weight Trains keep on rollin by Every seven minutes Every eight Metal cars on metal tracks A hundred times each day Metal cars run through this city Taking you away You're leavin leavin leavin I wake and fall asleep Train rattlin my bones Noise from that downstairs restaurant makes me feel more alone Lying in the darkness Bed shaking every day I'm alone in this darkness That train keeps taking you away You're leaving leaving leaving
Go Away 02:19
We went out to the railyards And hopped on a freight car And rode out to Roseville And drank whiskey 'til dawn We kissed under the moonlight Making love until first light And then hopped another train Back to the shipyards by the bay Wishing we could hop a ship Like a train and stowaway And go away And go away We could leave all our problems Behind us, our troubles Our worries, our debts But together we'd be On a beach in Tahiti Still drinking our whiskey Making love under Palm trees But we'd miss those trains Wishing we could hop a train Like we did that ship And go away, together And go away
Lilacs from Canada what a magical night Lilacs from Canada i know this is right Lilacs from Canada so lush and so true Lilacs from Canada i'm falling for you we met on a warm night under the stars i tried so hard to charm you bringing drinks from the bar i got yr friends so drunk Lauren lost her car i drove you home, you kissed me and it was like Lilacs from Canada what a magical night Lilacs from Canada i know this is right Lilacs from Canada so lush and so true Lilacs from Canada i'm yearning for you You spun me around in dances so sweet lifting me up putting stars at my feet you handmade me valentines and coffee so sweet but nothing coul;d ever beat the Lilacs from Canada when the season was done Lilacs from Canada i know you are the one Lilacs from Canada so lush and so true Lilacs from Canada mean i love you we live in the fog belt where summers are cold chasing lives and adventures and travels untold i play the accordion you make movies all night it's not the path we expected but damn it feels right when you got me Lilacs from Canada that smell like my home Lilacs from Canada i'm never alone Lilacs from Canada so lush and so true Lilacs from Canada you know i love you
Nashville has too much traffic and too much of the jesus we're driving out to Drunk Falls on old I-59 Sad that tour is ending and sad to not be home its our last day on the road the red brakelights look like a carnival and in honey island swamp even the graffitti is holy CHORUS all of the billboards in mississippi are torn and worn and bare the gas stations list no prices we know we have to go CHORUS every morning you make us the music that rides us through the day statelines and miles mean nothing except cheaper cigarettes CHORUS the rain kicks up the dust smell in old indiana chicago is calling and calling we'll be there soon CHORUS it's sex shops, fireworks more jesus and we make our final drive no more whiskey. no more crazy now we've had our time
Keep Drinkin' Drown your sorrows There's nuthin' better than a good ol' double o' rye Yeah, keep drinkin' It cures what ales ya, but ale ain't enough to keep the thoughts from troublin' Keep drinkin' Drown them sorrows away Rhubarb Whiskey Ain't it a gas Always with ya', in a silver flask Rhubarb Whiskey It's the demon yeah it ain't no angel but it helps the healin' Yeah whiskey Drown them sorrows away
