Stagger Lee

My name is Stagger Lee.
And I'm walking through the ice and snow.
And my girl threw me out last week.
And I'm fucking broke.
Nothing but this dollar in my pocket and my Colt .45.
Don't look at me the wrong way...
cause I got nothing to lose tonight.
 
I walk into JD's.
I put a dollar down.
I turn a dollar into a few.
I start drinking and I turn around.
Cause I feel a pair of eyes burning into the back of my neck.
He's whispering to the barkeep.
The goddamn fool won't stop staring at me.
So I shoot up from my seat and press the cold steel to his head and said
'Don't you know who the fuck I am?'
He said, 'Stagger Lee, please don't take my life.
I've got a kid back home
and I've got a wife.'
He said, 'Please, Stagger, please.
I'm a friend, not a foe. But your girl is with Billy at the Flamingo.
I just thought you should know.'
 
So I pistol whip him in the teeth and walk outside.
Steal the first fast car I see.
And as my blood starts to boil...
I start to take a little ride.
Leave the car running.
Pull down the brim of my Black Stetson Hat.
Look around and I see no witness.
One last drink from my silver flask.
I kick open the door. I see their bodies intertwined.
I see the fear in their eyes. I point my Colt .45
and I feel divine.
 
Stagger Lee... you're a bad, bad man.
Oh Stagger Lee, you're going straight to hell.
Stagger Lee, you're a bad, bad man.
Oh Stagger Lee, you're going strait to hell.

Stay Down

Micheladas in the afternoon
Lie on the couch in a rented room
Watching 'Jeopardy' without the sound
It's easy to stay down
 
Quick mistakes and long goodbyes
Horrible truths and necessary lies
I caught a train that was backwards bound
It's easy to stay down
 
Stay down till your mind has been cleared
And your trail can't be found
Stay down with your eye to the sky
And your ear to the ground
 
Down by the pool with all my brand-new friends
Rewriting letters that I'll never send
Declining invitations into town
It's easy to stay down
 
Slowly admit that you have had your fun
The girl you loved and every word you sung
All the profane that you thought profound
It's time now to stay down
 
Stay down till the smoke has been cleared
And your name can't be found
Stay down with your head in the clouds
And your eyes to the ground
 
Feel the sting of the final blow
What could've been, you don't care or know
Don't try to go another round -
Stay down
 

Friends

Yesterday I was still there, now I'm gone
I still carry images in me from the past
In the prime of my life I was strong
Young and proud, always ready
 
[Chorus]
I would like to see my home so much
Again with my friends, drinking away
All of a sudden you take your life in your hand
And you realize... It's too late
 
I've seen a lot, but also missed too much
I know what happened
Have crossed borders, hurt - my friends
I felt a bitter wind, I was not welcome
 
[Chorus]
 
My heart was never really in it, so what?
Never had any scruples
Wasn't myself, had lost control
I still remember that today
 
[Chorus]
 

It Should Be Me

I know you
I know what you been through
you say it won't happen again
I see you
protecting your feelings
I hear you deny and defend
 
You say love will never catch you off guard, ever
and no one's gonna capture your heart
but you know someday somebody will
and i'm gonna wait until you're ready
 
'Cause it should be me
when you open your eyes and see
the one that you love
And oh, when you know
what you want and what could be
baby it should be me
 
It's easy
to be with a stranger
they come and they go through our lives
You tell me
how you love the danger
falling in love for one night
But if you really wanna take the chance, baby
you'll turn around and see how I am
And if I am your night or fate
You're gonna want someone to stay forever
 
And it should be me
when you open your eyes and see
the one that you love
And oh, when you know
what you want and what could be
baby it should be me
 
Oh, I know it's hard to let go
Open your heart, don't you feel it
It should be
 
It should be me
when you open your eyes and see
the one that you love
And oh, when you know
what you want and what could be
baby it should be me
 
the one that you love
And oh, when you know
what you want and what could be
baby it should be me
 

Ol’ Man River

Old man river,
that old man river,
he don't say nothin'
but he must know somethin',
that old man river,
he just keeps rolling along.
 
He don't plant taters
and we all know he don't pick cotton
but them that plant 'em
are soon forgotten, that
old man river,
he just keeps rolling along.
Oh, yes, he does.
 
You and me, we sweat and toil,
our bodies all naked
and racked with pain, now, listen.
Lift that bar, you better tote that bail
and if ya' get a little drunk,
you'll land in jail.
 
I'm so weary, and sick of tryin'.
I'm tired of livin' but afraid of dyin', that,
that god-darn old river,
he just keeps rollin' along.
Keep on rolling along.
 
Keep on rollin' along.
Old man river, don't you stop your way.
Keep on rollin'
from the north, the south,
the east or west.
You gotta roll it.
