    First thing we'd climb a tree
    And maybe then we'd talk
    Or sit silently
    And listen to our thoughts
    With illusions of someday

    Lyrics
    Bourbon blues on the street, loose and complete
    Under skies all smoky blue-green
    I can't forsake a Dixie dead-shake
    So we danced the sidewalk clean
    My memory is muddy, what's this river that I'm in?

    Lyrics
    Sundown in the Paris of the prairies wheat kings have all their treasures buried
    And all you hear are the rusty breezes pushing
    Around the weather vane Jesus
    In his Zippo lighter, he sees the killer's face maybe
    It's someone standing in a killer's place twenty years for nothing, well that's

    Lyrics
    They shot a movie once, in my hometown
    Everybody was in it, from miles around
    Out at the speedway, some kind of Elvis thing
    Well I ain't no movie star
    But I can get behind anything
