about

Written, performed and produced by Robert LaSalle

lyrics

damn you girl
damn you girl
you left me dead
i'm gonna ride this train
gonna ride it west

i'll get off
when i'm damn well
find a little job
in a little town

i'll ride down
to the mountains high
i'll find the best damn thing
and i'll make it mine

catch me now
if you can
you can see me fly
you won't see me land

listen for a minute
you can hear the world collapse
you can see the humor
you can never seem to laugh

a few good hours
i'll really be someone
won't see me flying down the
westbound into the setting sun

damn you girl
you know me best
gonna jump this train
i'm gonna ride it west

i'm gonna stuff it all
down a cigarette
i'm gonna hop this train
i'm gonna ride it west

i dropped the bottle back
i spun it first
i threw a half full glass
into your hearse

floating on wild bulls
through canyons in a nest
i threw the half full moon
at your nice leather vest

i found a horse shoe
and i named it you
in god's country
and i knew you would want to see me, but i...

i write to appease the open wound
