lyrics

I wear a red ring on my pinky
To keep the ghost away
But when the howling interrupts my thinking
I remember why I pray
It's a ghost town kind of city
But everyone looks so clean
The women all are pretty
But they're haunted underneath

I'm not one for superstitions
Ain't much of a drinker
But I do love beer and coffee and tea
There's plenty for me

And I step over the crack at the floor of the elevator
Maybe I'm afraid of heights
And when I travel sometimes I don't sleep at night

I just sing that
I am alone and I am looking for a place to go
I don't have much money but I've sure got a lot to show
I've got tea from Mississippi and I've got wine from Southern France
I've got a voice that ain't quite pretty and two feet that can't quite dance

Have you been to Oklahoma?
It's the land of bright red wounds
I want a big ole house with lots of land
And a view for the oil boom

I want bedsheets made of velvet
For my girl with satin skin
I want an angel up in heaven to drink away my sin

And it would slur its Hallelujahs
And fly in curly Q's
And it would always be remembered as the guardian angel of booze

And start singing
I saved your soul with all this drinking from my bowl
The blood of all our saviors babe the blood that makes me whole
One for all your lying
Two for your Achilles rage
The pearly gates are saloon doors there's a piano and a stage

And maybe after hanging round with jet right out of here
Or maybe I can stay a while I hear the weather's fine
And the team's supposed to have a helluva year
