Back Pocket Blues

Audio available soon:


Soon we’ll melt into the crowd But it’s just the two of us here now When the plane lands and the ears pop When the day starts and the night stops The good cuts are just bones to pick When it’s rolling out the window We don’t know which way it went Just like money burns a hole through a pocket

The wheels role over the rocks And we roll around in the bed of the truck with the toolbox A sky of flame and thunder Will set my mind to wander Over the hills and the sticks When it’s rolling out the window We don’t know which way it went Just like money burns a hole through a pocket

Love notes and letters They’re not mine to send her They’re just things she’ll find on her own Whirlpools and rivers They’re not mine to give her They’re just there to lead her way home

When it’s rolling out the window We don’t know which way it went Just like money burns a hole through a pocket
