about

MEXICAN TRANSIENT SONG

lyrics

If I could be a transient down in Mexico
Then I wouldn’t be so damn worried about my soul
Spend a life a’livin’ and feeling free
And I’d never have to answer to nobody

Well I spent some time on the good side
Been drunk in the shade all day
Where the Sun was bright and the people was true
Where I wish that I would have stayed

If I could be a hobo on those big, long railroad tracks
Then I wouldn’t have no money to be spent
No address to receive no bills so none to pay
You can take all that I have if you want my pants

You know I never quite got this life I’m livin’
Now I think I know the reason why
You see every little thing that I ever touch just dies
My car, my guitar, and my dealer just today
My preacher fell to pieces when I knelt down and I prayed him to
Return me back to peaceful times where my job was to play
Where the sun was bright and the people was true
Where I wish that I would have stayed

about

Free Range Folk Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania

A couple of guitars underneath the stars, and an upright bass, a sax full of chaw, and a musical saw, and an old time pace, an open back banjo, a tater bug mandolin, and amazing grace.
