"String of Racehorses" as written by and Jessee/gupton/weatherhead....
you got a lot of nerve to think
that you are
anybody’s good luck charm

there’s no easy way
there’s no better day
to get home safe
to be unscathed

i’ll make time for you
misunderstood and blue
as the walls come down

on the streets of your town
having trouble let it go
and they don’t let up
these voices coming on
telling you to move on

there’s a lot of things you missed
a lot of things you fixed
sometimes it’s a long way down
and I just think about it now
all the other hands that taught you how
to forgive and forget
forgive and forget

i’ll make time for you
misunderstood and blue
as the walls come down
on the streets of your town
having trouble let it go
and they don’t let up
these voices coming on
telling you to move on

it’s harder now that it’s over
you see it so clear
it’s something you can depend on
like uncertainty

on the borderline
distance and time
and I don’t even know you now
people passing in a trance
not lost but there’s a chance
to forgive and forget

on the streets of your town
having trouble let it go
and they don’t let up
these voices coming on
like a string of racehorses

slowing steps and pavement
plastic reindeer on the lawn
and they don’t let up
these voices coming on
telling you to move on
