"Muchacho's Tune" as written by and Matthew Houck....
I sang, roll away the stone
Set up a trembling in my bones
I sat there all alone
Just cried and cried

I saw the moonlight's mirrored glow
On that old dirty city’s snow
I sat there feeling low
Oh my, oh my

I found some fortune, found some fame
I found they cauterized my veins
Hey, I’ve been fucked up, and I’ve been a fool
But like the shepherd to the lamb
Like the wave unto the sand
I’ll fix myself up, to come and be with you

See I was slow to understand
This river’s bigger than I am
It’s running faster than I can
Tho, Lord, I tried

Between the shadow and the storm
A little pup was being born
A little whelp without his horns
Oh my, oh my

Hey mama, meet me 'neath the moon
I will be humming out that tune
I've been fucked up, and I've been a fool
But like the shepherd to the lamb
Like the wave onto the sand
I’ll fix myself up, to come and be with you

Like the shepherd to the lamb
Like the wave onto the land
I’ll fix myself up, to come and be with you
Aw now, mama, here I stand
Mama, reaching for your hand
I fix myself up, come and be with you
Fix myself up, come and be with you
Fix myself up, come be with you

    General CommentCan't believe there are no comments on this beautiful song.

    I think the narrator has a drug problem and is promising his significant other than he will clean up - "I'll fix myself, and come and be with you" - a brilliant line that sums it all up.
