Slow Road to Nowhere Fast- Dan and Leland

Check out that green silk suit and them midnight eyes
Pointy yellow boots and a bolo tie
Pulls a gold flask out from his vest and says
Put down your glass, son
Take a taste of the good life and tell me
Are you satisfied
To warm the same barstool every Friday night
You’re going to wake up one morning at the end of your life
Make up your mind, son

1st CHO
You’ve been walking the slow road to nowhere
You should be in the driver’s seat
There’s a great big world at your fingertips
That is spinning while you’re standing still
On the slow road to nowhere fast

So I take a sip, and sip some more
There’s a dusty mirror behind the bar
Staring at myself, I notice he is gone
And the room looks different
Electricity from the floor to the rafters
Opalescent shimmers and coyote laughter
As I swagger through the haggard to the sweet hereafter
My mind’s made up

2nd, 3rd CHO
I’ve been walking the slow road to nowhere
I should be in the driver’s seat
There’s a great big world at my fingertips
That is spinning while I’m standing still
On the slow road to nowhere fast
