WAKE YOU UP

Embers in the ash and daylight’s dyin’

Bourbon in a glass like a gun in my hand

The sun is sinkin’ fast but smoke is risin’

 

Tonight I’m gonna wake you up

Everyone’s sleepin’

Drive you around this one light town

Everyone’s leavin’

As soon as the money comes in

The pills run out, or Daddy quits drinkin’

One of these days, one of these nights

 

Mama’s still concerned I ain’t found Jesus

But he and I got different terms and conditions get worse

She says I’ll never learn, and she got damn good reason

 

Tonight I’m gonna wake you up

Everyone’s sleepin’

Drive you around this one light town

Everyone’s leavin’

As soon as the money comes in

The pills run out, or Daddy quits drinkin’

One of these days, one of these nights

 

How long till it wears us out?

Runnin’ circles around we go
