"4 Leaf Clover"

"4 Leaf Clover"


I got a four-leaf clover
It ain't done one single lick of good
I'm still a drunk, I'm still a loser
Living in a lousy neighborhood

I got a real live horseshoe
And I hung it upside down above my door
But it don't do nothing to attract you
So I don't know what the hell it's for

Why don't you come over?
I'll show you my four-leaf clover
Who'm I trying to kid?
I'm not the kind of guy you'd go for

I got a four-leaf clover
But I ain't got no hope of getting you, wow

I got a…ou…
I got a lucky silver dollar
My granddad gave it to me, now he's dead
At times like this, I wish that I could join him
It might just stop this pounding in my head

Why don't you come over?
I'll show you my four-leaf clover
Who'm I trying to kid?
I'm not the kind of guy you'd go for

I got a four-leaf clover
But I ain't got no hope of getting you
I ain't got no hope of getting you
I ain't got no hope of getting you, ow

"504"

"504"


I was playing every Monday on Burgundy in some shitty little bar.
I was working on a novel called New Orleans Ain't No City - It's a Scar.
The heroine does heroin, the hero wears his hair just like The King.
He says, "It ain't my job to sweet talk you. My job's just to sing."

I was loved once by a woman, she don't love me anymore. 504. 504.
And I won't never know no woman like the one I'd known before. 504. 504.
And she don't love me anymore.

Well the hero wears a hair-net, from the outset he drinks Jax beer from a can.
He says, "There's something 'bout this city always gets me. I'm a sentimental man."
Well the heroine plays violin and reads her Elmore Leonard everyday.
She's the one that finds the body. He's the one that gets away.

I was loved once by a woman, she don't love me anymore. 504. 504.
And I won't never know no woman like the one I'd known before. 504. 504.
And she don't love me anymore.

I was loved once by a woman, she don't love me anymore. 504. 504.
And I won't never know no woman like the one I'd known before. 504. 504.
You know she had me singing gospel out in the kitchen on the floor. 504. 504.
And she don't love me anymore.

No she don't love me anymore. No she don't love me anymore. 504.

"A State Of Texas"

"A State Of Texas"


When the day breaks on Cedar Creek Lake
Or my life rolls into Rome
When the sun goes down on Austin town
That's when I'll know I'm home

What a time we'll have on Greenville Ave
With the big shots in Big D
I'm livin' in a state of Texas
And Texas lives in me

For the girls I've known in San Anton
And out El Paso way
My love grows like a yellow rose
And will not fade away

When you hold tight on a summer night
I'm gone, yeah, I am free
I'm livin' in a state of Texas
And Texas lives in me
I'm livin' in a state of Texas
And Texas lives in me

Like a mystery train or a magic trick
Or a map of the world on a guitar pick
I can't explain, I got to let it be
The eyes of Texas are smiling on me
Yeah, the eyes of Texas are smiling on me

Where the bluebonnets thrive on I-35
And the Guadalupe River flows
Where the stars at night are a hell of a sight
And the honkey-tonks never close

When the mornin' sun rise and I open my eyes
Yeah, that's all I wanna see
I'm livin' in a state of Texas
And Texas lives in me
I'm livin' in a state of Texas
And Texas lives in me

I'm livin' in a state of Texas
And Texas lives in me

"Adelaide"

"Adelaide"


Heaven I need drug
Her eyes are all but fixed upon her coffee cup
And looking down she tells you things are looking up
Take another slug
Heaven I had a dream
But now my life's a nightmare of efficiency
She rattles off the things she never got for free
Gearing up to scream
I remember when
I had you and you had so much promise then
You promised me that you would never leave again
To be broken you were made Adelaide
Heaven I need a rest
I recognized the voices talking in my head
I couldn't make out everything the voices said
Loving you is a test
I remember when
I had you and you had so much promise then
you promised me that you would never leave again
To be broken you were made Adelaide
Heaven I need a drink
I'm here because they're paying me to do my thing
They never specify what it is I should bring
I'm right up on the brink
I remember when
I had you and you had so much promise then
You promised me that you would never leave again
To be broken you were made Adelaide

"All Who Wander"

"All Who Wander"


I must live in this confusion
I must love to be confused
I must strike out in the darkness
Buy some time both new and used

Time to wander through the arches
Time to wonder at the ruins
Time to figure out exactly
What the hell I'm doing

All who wander are not lost
Just me, just me
Signals and wires both get crossed
Remember back when you got lost with me

I must to cling to that which kills me
I must lose my heart's desire
I must wind up worn and wasted
With a flatscreen for a fire

Will the stories make me happy?
Some facsimile thereof
Will they give directions that will
Lead me back to love?

All who wander are not lost
Just me, just me
Signals and wires both get crossed
Remember back when you got lost with me

I must walk through walls of whispers
I must sleep 'neath sheets of rain
I must climb up to the basement
Just to slide back down again

All who wander are not lost
Just me, just me
Signals and wires both get crossed
Remember back when you got lost
Remember back when you got lost
Remember back when you got lost with me

"Alone So Far"

"Alone So Far"


I watch, as it stops for a girl,
A moment, elaborate and weak.
I am easy in her midst,
Why elaborate, when there's no need to?

But I do, all night,
My words ring like money off a bar.
But she's here, asleep now,
One can only go alone so far.

One can only go alone so far.

I dream of a deep dark grave,
Seven feet below Saint Augustine.
And she's so easy in her breathing,
Why fall in love, when there's no need to?

But we do all night,
Sleep like spoons, forget whom we are.
But she's here, and she's wound down now.
One can only go alone so far.

One can only go alone so far.

"Am I Too Late?"

"Am I Too Late?"


When you were just a little girl in Pine Bluff,
Daddy disappeared without a trace.
Now there's no more little girls in Pine Bluff,
They all ran like tears out of this place.

[Chorus:]
Am I too late
Am I too late
Tell you that I love you
Now they've carried you away
[repeat]

Never thought that you would see a sickbed,
Never thought that you'd stop bein' 'round.
Now I hear you're lost and gone forever,
Just like all the other girls in town.

[Chorus]

Now I hear that you have gone to Heaven,
And if there's one, I'm sure that's where you are.
Maybe you're the new star in the night sky,
Just outside the moonroof on my car.

[Chorus x2]

Tell you that I love you
Now they've carried you away
Tell you that I love you
Now they've carried you away
Tell you that I love you
Now they've carried you away

"Bad Luck Charm"

"Bad Luck Charm"


Kill the bottle and build a fire
Watch the flames lick the telephone wire
You knew I was trouble from the start

Know-it-all, yeah, you should have known better
Baby I'm bad right down to the letter
You spent too much time gambling with your heart

If you cross your fingers
You can hang me on your arm
Baby, I'm a bad luck charm

You were looking for love last night
I was looking for a light
I never am where I'm supposed to be

You might think I'm a hell of a catch
But lightin' my fire's like three on a match
It's between the devil and you and me

If you cross your fingers
You can hang me on your arm
Baby, I'm a bad luck charm

Could you please believe
I didn't mean to do no harm
Baby, I'm a bad luck charm

If you cross your fingers
You can hang me on your arm
Baby, I'm a bad luck charm

How'd I end up tangled in your feet?
When I'm just another black cat
Crossing your street

If you cross your fingers
You can hang me on your arm
Baby, I'm a bad luck charm

Could you please believe
I didn't mean to do no harm
Baby, I'm a bad luck charm
Baby, I'm a bad luck charm
Baby, I'm a bad luck charm

"Barrier Reef"

"Barrier Reef"


The Empty Bottle was half-empty
Tide was low and I was thirsty
Saw her sittin' at the bar
You know how some girls are

Always making eyes
Well, she wasn't making eyes

So I sidled up beside her
Settled down and shouted, "Hi there.
My name's Stewart Ransom Miller
I'm a serial ladykiller."

She said, "I'm already dead."
And that's exactly what she said
So we tripped the lights fantastic
We was both made of elastic

Midnight came and midnight went
And I thought I was the president
She said, "Do you have a car?"
And I said, "Do I have a car?"

What's so great about the barrier reef
What's so fine about art
What's so good about a Good Times van
When you're working on a broken, working on a broken
Working on a broken man
When you're working on a broken, working on a broken
Working on a broken man

My heart wasn't in it
Not for one single minute
I went through the motions
With her her on top and me on liquor
Didn't do no good
Well, I didn't think it would

What's so great about the barrier reef?
Yeah, what's so fine about art?
What's so good about a Good Times van
When you're working on a broken, working on a broken
Working on a broken man

When you're working on a broken, working on a broken
Working on a broken man
When you're working on a broken, working on a broken
Working on a broken man
