Fireline Road lyrics

Ever crossed your lips in my company
Straight bourbon whiskey was all we'd abide
So let's don't hold back now, we've got nothing to hide

So much we savored yet so much we missed
You know I never meant you to see me like this
Just a faint distant flicker from the last of the storm
You know a taste of that liquor could do me no harm

Light me a candle, light me a fire
Come and sit by the window with the shades drawn
To the best of intentions and the worst of desires
Leave by the Gulf Road in the gray dawn

Take a short handled shovel, take a long handled hoe
Cover my bones when the west wind blows
Smooth it off even and pack it down hard
Now, no more be here but I'll never be far
I'll no more be here but I'll never be far

Light me a candle, light me a fire
Come and sit by the window with the shades drawn
To the best of intentions and the worst of desires
Leave by the Gulf Road in the gray dawn
Leave by the Gulf Road in the gray dawn

Ever crossed your lips in my company
Straight bourbon whiskey was all we'd abide
