Track Name: Sitting This One Out
Sitting This One Out

driving thru the rain to Lafayette
to hear them birdies sing
the windshield wipers broken
I can’t see a goddamn thing
the jumper cables melted
I can’t get the phone to ring
looks like I’ll be sitting this one out

the rats ate thru the wiring
there’s sand inside the switch
the tools are in the trailer
but somebody stole the hitch
I’d tell you where I’m stranded
but I don’t know where that is
looks like i’ll be sitting this one out

i’m a far way away from home
dreaming of a shower, and breakfast in bed
the road’s getting longer
I should push thru it by Tuesday
if I don’t wind up dead

the holidays are coming
the moon is on the rise
if I get where I’m going,
it’ll be a big surprise
dump my bones into a hammock
spend the evening swatting flies
I think I might be sitting this one out
looks like I’ll be sitting this one out
