The day we met, we shared a joke
In a woman's stall
I should have known she'd watch me fall
I should have known she'd watch me fall
I was a follower of detours
She was the brightest one way sign
I took to the top and I did slide, slide, slide
So I scribbled rhymes of love
She sang the 80's kind of tunes
I believe the words of JoJo
Be a medium of truth
At night we walked the alley
Drinking whiskey through a straw
Til the sun came up and took us to her room

She came along (I came along)
Through the hills of Tennessee
Til she came upon (I came upon)
Nashville history

I said, brother I once too gave her all my rhymes
She tied me to her tree
Played russian roulette with my spine
She could take my head, I'd take time with her dime
You know it soon will end, if you enjoy the ride
I woke up in a hotel, just south of 24
With he and her lying naked on the hotel floor
I stood up and laughed, though I didn't know she knew
Went over to my sill, said something close to this

To go alone (to go alone)
Is the only lasting path
If you must roam (If you must roam)
May your days numbered last

She started up a band when she got home
They knew I was real
That night we shared a smoke
I knew it really well, what kind of folks go to shows
Signed a fancy deal, they tour with all the bands you know
For the evil who must be on a different path
For the cross she seems loss or distracted
So she wrote a week ago, when she was a mess
Was working on our own record
She asked if she could it hers

You still have (I still have)
Drunken prophecies
And you'll be glad (Yes, I'll be glad)
To repeat them every night

She said I guess (I guess)
I didn't think of it that way
I only meant (I only meant)
A sad song for a change

I just laughed, this time I really laughed
And said okay
