Whiskey and Morphine have been good friends to me But still I've been accused of keeping worse company High times and the low times I've seen them all before Likely won't reach for a Bible Until death's knocking at my door Sister forgive me I've had too much again Thought I had redemption but then the morning came creeping in Women I've forgiven and one's that I despise They had one thing in common both knew how to tell a lie I think about the future I fear those days won't come Cause I've lost my heart to strangers and now I've no one left to love Sister forgive me I've had too much again Thought I had redemption but then the morning came creeping in Music's getting darker women are dancing slow the bar room's turning empty now I've no place left to go Sister forgive me I've had too much again Thought I had redemption but then the morning came creeping in Sister forgive me I've had too much again Thought I had redemption but then the morning came creeping in

Nowhere 04:06
Something's going on that I can't explain something like a fever something like a fire burning through my veins It seems like I may not find my way out this time turn another corner to a dead end street and try to run out on my mind I gotta go I gotta go Nowhere It seems like it's been so long since I didn't have to look behind To know where it is I came from who's still there to call mine Every hour of every day like another mile away What if the hands don't stop and there's no time to say that I had to go I had to go Nowhere Now I'd like a little time alone to ease my mind and try to find out where I've gone where I've gone Now I know there are lessons that I've left to learn I gotta find my way back over bridges that I've burned so give me a direction point me back to the road For taking all the right turns something I'm not often know I don't wanna go Don't wanna go Nowhere Now I'd like a little time alone to ease my mind and try to find out where I've gone where I've gone

There I've watched another year go by One more time the Winter comes to find I'm trying trying to do it right Times I've been known to run and hide times I've known enough to say goodbye This time I hope I do it right How long can this go on How long can I hold on Last night suicide seemed the sweet solution in my mind now I find it seems a drunk man can't decide Can't make up my mind One more glass of wine one more dream one more line about what life's done to me who will I blame it on this time All the mistakes times I've been wrong and all the wrong roads I've been down Still I wanna turn it around How long can this go on How long can I hold on Last night suicide seemed the sweet solution in my mind now I find it seems a drunk man can't decide Can't make up my mind Last night suicide seemed the sweet solution in my mind

Tomorrow 03:13
Got a story gonna tell you if we ever find time alone I'm trying not to hold on to something that I know is gone but I don't know how to let you go I'm learning it's not yesterday anymore Sun still rises in the morning throws a ray across the kitchen wall in the mirror reflection of someone that I don't know at all anymore Oh now since you walked out the door I'm learning it's not yesterday anymore Now won't you tell me how you get along It's something that you've learned since I've been gone Now won't you tell me what I've done wrong I realize that yesterday is gone Now won't you tell me how you get along It's something that you've learned since I've been gone Now won't you tell me what I've done wrong I realize that yesterday is gone

6th Avenue 03:35
Well the sun is going down on 6th Avenue the sky is turning red it's tired of being blue I've got a dollar in my pocket gonna buy myself a coke well the kids rat-a-tat-tat by baseball cards in their spokes And the churches ring their bells and the trains they rumble by and a single sparrow silhouette darts across the sky There's water dripping down from the air conditioner grate it gets this hot and this humid we drink cheap beer and we stay up late The college girls down the block are having a party again if I get drunk enough and lonely I'll go down and hang with them And the churches ring their bells and the trains they rumble by and a single sparrow silhouette darts across the sky Well the sun is going down on 6th Avenue the sky is turning red it's tired of being blue

On My Mind 03:39
The wind is blowing cold as far as I know back where I'd rather be but on a highway tonight there's been no one for miles just those shining eyes that stare from the side You're on my mind I was thinking 'bout that time we stayed up all night Well you were telling stories and I was telling lies Was trying not to show what I'd wanted you to know for such a long time You've been on my mind Then a thousand miles and a few more days is just a small price to pay and everything will be alright I try to realize what I know inside that I I'm on your mind Now the miles seem so long and the choices all seem wrong You know I wonder what have I done Just remember what I said No matter where I am You know you're always You're on my mind Then a thousand miles and a few more days is just a small price to pay and everything will be alright I try to realize what I know inside that I I'm on your mind You're on my mind

Said Red Molly to James that's a fine motorbike A girl could feel special on any such like Said James to Red Molly, my hat's off to you It's a Vincent Black Lightning, 1952 And I've seen you at the corners and cafes it seems Red hair and black leather, my favourite colour scheme And he pulled her on behind And down to Boxhill they did ride Said James to Red Molly, here's a ring for your right hand But I'll tell you in earnest I'm a dangerous man I've fought with the law since I was seventeen I robbed many a man to get my Vincent machine Now I'm 21 years, I might make 22 And I don't mind dying, but for the love of you And if fate should break my stride Then I'll give you my Vincent to ride Come down, come down, Red Molly, called Sergeant McRae For they've taken young James Adie for armed robbery Shotgun blast hit his chest, left nothing inside Oh, come down, Red Molly to his dying bedside When she came to the hospital, there wasn't much left He was running out of road, he was running out of breath But he smiled to see her cry And said I'll give you my Vincent to ride Says James, in my opinion, there's nothing in this world Beats a 52 Vincent and a red headed girl Now Nortons and Indians and Greeveses won't do They don't have a soul like a Vincent 52 He reached for her hand and he slipped her the keys He said I've got no further use for these I see angels on Ariels in leather and chrome Swooping down from heaven to carry me home And he gave her one last kiss and died And he gave her his Vincent to ride
