original, recorded as a solo project


she put pillows on the floor and padding on the walls
she can tell by the way i walk that i'm bound to fall
she runs with a stretcher right behind me
with a bottle of jack in a rolling rack hooked to an I.V.

that woman is a swiss army knife
for my drunk and disorderly life

she flashes some blades says the long one's for a shave
the short one's to poke me in case i misbehave
she got a screw driver takes the hinges off the door
and a cork screw i bet that you can guess what's that for

wound up under the table think i had a defective chair
when i opened my eyes to my surprise you were already there
like a fortune teller you knew where i'd be
and you had a little picknick there just for you and me

some say we're co-dependent how much you wanna bet
this is as close to true love as i'm ever gonna get
i'm living in her basement now but what do i care
as long as when we're lovin she lets me come up for air

feel like i'm in a rowboat with only one oar
with paradise waiting for me on the other shore
when she says baby i've got just the trick
i'll use your guitar for a tiller and you go overboard and kick


from South Bound Train, track released October 27, 2020
