lyrics

There’s a dirty road I want to walk
An old Cyprus porch where I can hear them talk
Charley Patton and Stagger Lee
But this is the time for you and me

There are still trees I want to shake
People who kicked me when I made a mistake
I want to cut them, bring 'em to their knees
But this is the time for you and me

The devil's blood, it likes to roam
Ain’t very good at keeping it home
I like the taverns and the boulevard lights
But not today, girl, not tonight

There’s a phoenix I’ve got to fly
A restaurant in China that I want to try
Where they smoke their duck with the leaves of tea
But this is the time for you and me

I can’t say I won’t forget
How sick I was, desperate, cold and wet
How you gave me shelter from the misery
And all the faith you had in me

There will come a time you’ll sleep right through the night
And all your dreams will be cloaked in white
And all the troubles I put you through
They’ll all be gone girl, and I will too
They’ll all be gone girl
They’ll all be gone girl
(and I will too)
