Well yea yea we stole the money but its already gone Cause she left me last night and she took it all So I’m hiding with the brothers at the back of the bar Then its one more night sleeping in my car Because I’m running … from John Law Been a long time running from the deputy Come on take me down to the penitentiary Going down down town They’re getting closer now And when I wake up alone Haunted by my dreams Locked up in a cage Wishing I was free I know I’m out of time Sittin at the bar with a .45 I been running and running and running away Been running and running and running every damn day Now the 5-0 on the beat and I can feel him comin Got a pistol on his side cause he’s a son of a gun Got me wanted with my picture up in every town Got a another law man wanna bring me down And the road and the road it goes on and on But she broke my heart and now I’m sick of this song And I broke the law but it ain’t bout right or wrong Johnny’s in it for the money but the moneys all gone Got me incarcerated Haunted by my dreams Locked up in a cage Wishing I was free I know I’m out of time Sitting at the bar with a .45 Been running and running and running away Been running and running and running every damn day

Well I’m not trying to put down the big city All of them lights and cars, there’s so damn many And its overwhelming The soul that I’m selling The time is always wearing thin Tomorrows never gonna be the same again I don’t wanna go The times ain’t really a-changing We’re just getting older and praying for new beginnings Don’t wanna say goodbye or leave the past behind Don’t wanna miss my friends Don’t wanna see the end I got no plans to climb the buildings in the sky I got no time anymore Tomorrow’s time to go our separate ways Big city bound to work and get paid But tonight I know that we don’t have to say What you and I both know anyway I don’t wanna go The times ain’t really changing We’re just getting older and praying for new beginnings

Been waiting all night Out in the back yard With my head up in the sky Take me away To outer space To a simple place That no one knows Its been a long long time So long I think I lost my mind. There’s a simple vision When the moon shines like the sun So take me away To outer space To a simple place That no one knows Been a long long time So long think I lost my mind

It was late last night I could barely stand up right And I couldn’t remember her name She told me twice Yea she told me two times But it just wouldn’t stay in my brain Goddamn Woman, what is your name? Good goddamn woman, what is your name? I was smoking a cigarette That’s when she looked in to my face She told me again and I just nod my head But that name of hers it just wouldn’t stay Goddamn I love you baby But I don’t even know your name I might just remember in the morning time But Im not gonna promise anything Goddamn woman what is your name? Goddamn woman what is your name? Whats your name? Standing on the corner with an empty beer Theres a big man yelling get the hell outta here Got to stumble home Walking down the curb and she got my arm Come on take me home please it ain’t that far Got to stumble home Whose got my lighter cause I can’t find mine? Looking in my face talking bout the time. Baby I don’t know. I don’t know Gotta stumble home. Stumble Home.

Your lovin’s got a hold on me Its undeniable. undeniable. What am I thinking? she knows my weakness now Your love and lies and love and lies are spinnin me round Your love and lies and love and lies are bringing me down Love and lies and love and lies Your cherry lips and big old thighs Gonna bring me down in the end Woman I’m caught up Im trapped in your web And you sure are crazy baby But you got in my head Its undeniable no other woman can compare Its undeniable. undeniable. What I am thinking? She knows my weakness now Your love and lies and love and lies are spinning me round Your love and lies and love and lies are bringing me down Love and lies and love and lies Your cherry lips and big old thighs Gonna bring me down in the end Now I gotta put in the work If you wanna put it on the line It gets dangerous on the corner Livin this life of crime We could steal a little fortune And then live off the land You can be my one and only Won’t you take my hand?

Monsters come around at night Scaring little children while they’re sleeping They’re wallowing in delight They’ll crash your party on a Saturday night They spread the fever Yea they spread the fever With just one bite They’re gonna put the fever back in Saturday night Theres a crowd of zombies on my lawn Well they all move the same dance to the same song They’re multiplying. Tearing at the walls They want me with the fever. Want me to join them all But I don’t wanna be a parta no cult They spread the fever Yea they spread the fever With just one bite They gonna put the fever back in Saturday night Groovin to the music Moaning to the music

Lining up on the curb today With all the bums outside the courthouse Man they seem to love this place So full inside this poor old room Graffiti carved all over these wooden chapel pews God knows it true Misdemeanors and citations Keep the money rollin in Turn em loose bring em back again Gotta get the docket full by 9 AM Ain’t it just such a shame When you’re nothing but a number with a name? Ain’t it just such a shame When you’re nothing but a case with fines to pay? Cause its just another day For the judge and the DA While I’m sitting with the losers, The bums and all the boozers Waiting for my verdict down at Graham Just sitting down I gotta wait all day Cause if you ain’t pleading guilty They still try to make you pay Well your honor I’m not sure but I don’t really understand Just how you’re solving any problems with that mallet You got in your hands There’s got to got to be a better plan Cause this ain’t working Cause its just another day for the judge and the DA While Im sitting with the losers, the bums, and all the users And we all go down to Graham

Take me to the middle The middle of nowhere Its where I wanna go The middle of nowhere A Big city and a small town - there ain’t no difference When all they got to offer is just the same old system And everywhere on the highway it all looks the same Feel like I’m goin crazy in the big machine Sometimes you think you know it all Sometimes you don’t know anything But I wanna know I want to know whys it gotta be this way And I wanna go I want to go To how it was in the first place So believe me when I tell you To the barrel of your gun You can put me back in to the ground I’m not afraid of where I’m from Don’t you want something pretty in the picture? Don’t you take from it what you need? Don’t you care about what you see? So move on if your old and your not gonna grow Shoot the messengers if they just want a show Move on with your soul if your not gonna grow And all the greedy people at the top of the world Just tryin to get higher but they don’t know All the greedy people at the top of the world Just chasing the light like a mosquito Thinking they don’t know that they need the ground They don’t know that they need the sky They don’t know that they need the world And that is why They call it the middle The middle of nowhere
