Gulf Road

Gulf Road Lyrics

Not a hot cup of coffee, nor a cold glass of tea
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.
We'll sit by the window with the shades drawn
To the best of intentions and the worst of desires
We'll leave by the Gulf Road in the grey dawn

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