lyrics

I've got that west Texas sweat burning in my eyes
Running down my neck messing with my drive
I wouldn't be caught dead dying by your side
I've got leaving in my head trouble on my mind

Tried to play it straight take it stale and slow
I was early out the gate in a cloud of smoke
I swear I'll make my way to a place I can lay low
To a town of fifty-eight on the edge of Mexico

The road along the mesa won't get you anywhere
That's just where I'm going to do my time
I'm running out of road I'm going in this blind
I've got a pistol in my hand and trouble on my mind

Palomino gold a diamond highway weeps
This place it seems so old with no sign of history
I turn my lights down low my sights are set on sleep
I shouldn't be this cold wrapped in a fever dream

The road along the mesa won't get you anywhere
That's just where I'm going to make it right
I'm running out of road I'm going in this blind
I've got a pistol in my hand and trouble on my mind

I've got that west Texas sweat burning in my eyes
A feeling of regret running down my spine
I hope I don't forget that girl I left behind
I've got leaving in my head and running on my mind
