lyrics

Wink nice with true grit
Jail knife at twilight
Quick sand, quick lesson
Levi’s for Tucson
Crow tunes
Ravaging blaze
Consume gold cigarettes
Chesterfield’s
In Sing-Sing
Lips are sealed
When galloping
Full moon instills a craze
Consumes nights and days

Heirlooms for granite tombs
These are heirlooms for granite tombs
Heirlooms for granite tombs
Heirlooms for granite tombs


Warm Spanish headlights
Cool silent movies
Entangled in a shiver of dusty moonlight

Shhhhh……

The Chevy will muster
And the bottles will rustle
Along dotted scars
Filled with dreams
Birds will take flight
In that cool moonlight
While others will sleep in the trees
A passage of sorrow
Through a mountain so hollow
Orange rays poke through autumn leaves
Gives Ginger some hope
But still a dry throat
All the kids back home
Won’t believe

Heirlooms for granite tombs
These are heirlooms for granite tombs
Heirlooms for granite tombs
Heirlooms for granite tombs


Warm Spanish headlights
Cool silent movies
Quick sand, quick lesson
Levi’s for Tucson

The sound embraces with a clinched smile, and then stumbles and occasionally falls only to somehow prop itself back up for another round. ... more
