cd imgLOVE AND THEFT

Summer days, summer nights are gone
Summer days 'n' summer nights are gone
I know a place where there's still somethin' goin' on.

I've got a house on the hill, I got hogs out in the mud
I've got a house on the hill, I got hogs all out in the mud
I've got a long haired woman, she got royal Indian blood.

Everybody get ready, lift up your glasses and sing
Everybody get ready, lift up your glasses and sing
Well I'm standin' on the table, I'm proposin' a toast to the king.

I'm drivin' in the flats in a Cadillac car
The girls all say "You're a worn out star."
My pockets are loaded, and I'm spendin' every dime  
How can you say you love someone else, you know it's me all the time.

Well the fog's so thick you can't spy the land
The fog's so thick you can't even spy the land
What good are you anyway if you can't stand up to some old businessman.

Weddin' bells are ringin' and the choir is beginnin' to sing
Yes, the weddin' bells are ringin' and the choir's beginnin' to sing
What look good in the day, at night is another thing.

She's lookin' in to my eyes and she's holdin' my hand
She looks in to my eyes, she's holdin' my hand
She say "You can't repeat the past," I say "You can't?  
What do you mean you can't? Of course you can."

Where do you come from? Where do you go?
Sorry, that's nothin' you would need to know
Well, my back's been to the wall so long it seems like it's stuck 
Why don't you break my heart one more time, just for good luck.

I got eight carburators an' boys I'm usin' 'em all
Well, I got eight carburators an' boys I'm usin' 'em all
I'm short on gas, my motor's startin' to stall.

My dogs are barkin', there must be someone around
My dogs are barkin', there must be someone around
I got my hammer ringin' pretty baby, but the nails ain't goin' down.

If you got somethin' to say, speak or hold your peace
Well, if you got somethin' to say, speak out or hold your peace
If it's information you want, you can get it from the police.

Politician's got on his joggin' shoes
He must be runnin' for office, got no time to lose
Suckin' the blood out of the genius of generosity
You been rollin' your eyes, you been teasin' me.

Standin' by God's river, my soul's beginnin' to shake
Standin' by God's river, my soul's beginnin' to shake
I'm countin' on you love, to give me a break.

I'm leavin' in the mornin' as soon as the dark clouds lift
Yes, I'm leavin' in the mornin' just as soon as the dark clouds lift
I'm breakin' the roof in,  set fire to the place as a partin' gift.

Summer days, summer nights are gone
Summer days, summer nights are gone
I know a place where there's still somethin' goin' on.  up
