    Lyrics
    Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin' for a train
    And I's feelin' near as faded as my jeans
    Bobby thumbed a diesel down, just before it rained
    It rode us all the way to New Orleans
    I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna

    Lyrics
    Take the ribbon from your hair
    Shake it loose and let it fall
    Layin' soft upon my skin
    Like the shadows on the wall
    Come and lay down by my side

    Lyrics
    Well I woke up Sunday morning
    With no way to hold my head
    That didn't hurt
    And the beer I had for breakfast wasn't
    Bad so I had one more for dessert

    Lyrics
    Casey joins the hollow sound of silent people walking down
    The stairway to the subway in the shadows down below;
    Following their footsteps through the neon-darkened corridors
    Of silent desperation, never speakin' to a soul.
    The poison air he's breathin' has the dirty smell of dying

    Lyrics
    A couple of years back I come across a great and wasted friend of mine in the hallway of a recording studio. And while he was reciting some poetry to me that he had written, I saw that he was about a step away from dying, and I couldn't help but wonder why. And the lines of this song occurred to me. I'm happy to say he's no longer wasted, and he's got him a good woman. And I'd like to dedicate this to John and June, who helped showed me how to beat the devil.
    It was wintertime in Nashville
    Down on Music City Row
    And I was looking for a place
    And to get myself out of the cold
