lyrics

Past the bridge at county line,
lives a good friend of mine,
blasting Johnny 99

His old trucks full, of new fruit jars
Travelin' with ghosts and scars,
Avoiding, behind the bars


Were Gonna make it out alive, When we make it out of here.
Only the tough ones can survive, While the rest just disappear.

And you dream for days, about the train & the river
And you dream for days, about the train & the river
And you dream for days, about the train & the river


Work all week, with nothin’ to show.
A car that never goes,
Past all the debt that grows

Brown eyed susan in the mason jar
To pay bills,we turn from law
Feed our kids & fool them all


Tug the barge down to deliver
It’s a dark night on the river
As I glide past the sleeping town

Nations blind, caught up in Marshall Law
As our, War Wounds grow sore
They all show me the door
