Favorite Son Lyrics

Had myself a drink or two about a week agohow the hell
I ended up here Lord I'll never know
could've sworn I seen the wife just the other day
don't see each other much but it's always been that way
Texas plains whoever named em they sure got it right
I'm as bored as a twister running thru the night
ain't got no crowd to watch me as I bring the house
down
so what the hell's the use of even coming round
chorus:
Endless mountains call me now
they want their favorite son
got myself some leaking fuel
but I'm still on the run
Job it got the best of me so they kissed my ass goodbye
town could not contain me put me on the other side

tracks had the same pennies on em from way back when
that midnight train just flattened them again and again
(chorus)
Had myself settled down time and time again
but them scrap books can't hold me down I always reach
the end
Daddy rode the rails out of town during the strike of
62
he only looked back once, to say son you'll follow too'
My brother took em thru two states before they brought
him down
had himself a smile when the spread him on the ground
Sheriff wiped his own brow and thrashed around for air
said I'll walk that sonofabitch myself to that sizzling
chair'
(chorus)
So I'll watch the sun go down deep in the Texas sky
seems to take so long but I'm not one to ask why
I'll leave that shit to all those who've got the time
I was never raised to be the worrying kind
(chorus)
