original, recorded as a solo project


my shoelace mind came undone
tripping over the Tennessee sun
too late to talk me out of it again
I'm headed down on a southbound train

the truth will tie you in a double knot
whether it's remembered or forgot
and leave you with a lot to explain
best be leaving town on a southbound train

there’s a hole in the roof but I don’t care
get my best ideas gazing through there
some say I’m the next Mark Twain
some say I'm a clown on a southbound train

riding high as high as high noon
tell me honey where do you keep that bent spoon
fill it full of sugarcain
melt it down on a southbound train

I tore my heart apart in your little room
chasing the so-called fruits of doom
I'll wrap myself in the blanket of the rain
and breakdown on a southbound train

should anybody care where I’ve gone
full of schemes and dreams and song
tell them the tale of Charlemagne
how he found his crown on a southbound train


from South Bound Train, track released October 27, 2020
