Dusty Road

Play that song!


Here I go again down the road
I’m carrying heavy load
All the promises that I’ve been told
Are sold

Joy and fortune they used to be mine
My lucky star used to shine
Now I’m growing old
On that dusty road

Used to live my life easy
No my pants are getting sleazy

Blood And Rain

Play that song!


All I see are yellow skies
All I feel my burning eyes
And so I turn away
And the blood and rain is pouring out of clouds of grey
And you realize their ain’t no other way

All my life a dirty lie
All my deeds I can’t deny
And so I turn away…
