lyrics

i saw your knees bend as you sang that last note
i thought of how we stood on the winding colorado,
he smells like a trailor, with a mouth like a sailor,
and a fistful of GOLD
Fish off the hook, belly full of drink,
well Samson yellow-bellied you’re a slippery thing
like the moon or the wind, i’m not one to give in,
i’m a coyote-proud-cold-blooded thing

i can count the little steps i saw you walk toward me
on the balcony with the river running right below me
and the sound of your feet as you hit the ground running
in Dallas, San Francisco and Wounded Knee

Look down below as you row your boat
deep in the bottom of the swamp
and in the shallow ditch,
at the coroner’s report,
you know YOU gave it up
You never said goodbye and i’m not coming back
You know it ain’t my style,
I ate too much, I lost my appetite
You will miss me...in good time.


to the end, to the end, to the end, row your boat
to the end, to the end, to the end, row your boat

Tumbleweed and rifle, and you cry betrayal,
Hooked a trophy and her love drugs with a simple kiss,
it’s no fair to get outhustled, by a girl who cracked your puzzle,
and say, “I thought they loved me better than this!”
Well Judas you been living your life always searching
for something more - so i’m the junkyard prize
Yes look how love it shines, some glitter for your charity,
You’ll get the best of me, just like a shiny plaything

So Now I got a bloodvow - a PACT with myself
to keep you riddled, shot full of holes, through and through
You cry unfair, cos you can’t stand to lose,
Come on, face the woman now who outdrew you.

Look down below as you row your boat
deep in the bottom of the swamp
and in the shallow ditch,
at love’s autopsy,
oh you know who gave it up
You never said goodbye and i’m not coming back
You know it ain’t my style,
I ate too much, I lost my appetite
You will miss me.
in good time.

..Oh but he knows you’re here...
He knows that you exist.
He smiles the widest, wildest, brightest, starfucking smile
I have a red tan like the borderland you showed me,
to another country,
...your trespassing hand


to the end, to the end, to the end, row your boat
to the end, to the end, to the end, row your boatto the end, to the end, to the end, row your boat
to the end, to the end, to the end, row your boat
yes the end, to the end, this is the end, row your boat
to the end, to the end, the end, row your boat


bye, bye,
my wine, moonshine, sugarbeams


bye, bye,
my wine, moonshine, sugarbeams


bye, bye,
my wine, moonshine, sugarbeams
