Open Road Blues

The first thing I remember
is back seat sweet surrender
The first thing I forgot, I swear
is how she looked
that final day

I'm just that way a lot

Sometimes I'm sad I went away
Mostly I just sin all day
That preacher man
gets sweaty hands

when he tells me how I'm lost

{bridge}
*
I'm thinkin' 'bout
the folks back home
They can't allow
I gotta roam
I'm so empty
deep inside
I can't go back
and lose my pride

Ain't gatherin' no damn moss
*

I walk the dirty city nights
to find someone who'll treat me right
Hey baby girl
give me a whirl

God knows I've paid the cost

My dreams are broke like crystal shards
Sometimes it seems I went too far
I guess I'm goin'
straight to hell

Maybe Satan needs a boss

{bridge}
*
I'm thinkin' 'bout
the folks back home
They can't allow
I gotta roam
I'm so empty
deep inside
I can't go back
and lose my pride

That's how the dice were tossed

God knows I paid the cost

Oh, how grim. That damned pride can cost a lot. Few can afford that much of it. I hear this more as a recitation than as a song. Have you tried reading it and listening to yourself? Your voice would be good for this rhythm. Rather slap the guitar than play it. Try it. You'll like it. ML

Len:  I like this very much.   Could hear the guitar strummin' in the background and see the "rebel" wandering the pathways.

Well Len, anyone who said they never got a chance never took a chance.
