Sullen Mind

Album: Golden Sings That Have Been Sung (2016)
  • I'm cast in a corner bar and you'd tell me
    Naked ladies in the sunlight, they adore me
    And I can only turn to walk away, because I only have a Christian education

    And with a sullen mind, I carry you
    And with a sullen mind, I'm fair
    And with a sullen mind, I laid down
    And with a sullen mind, I'm out of here

    I'm cast in a corner bar and you'd tell me
    I can take any motherfucker home who loves me
    And I can only turn to walk away, because I only have a Christian education

    And with a sullen mind, I carry you
    And with a sullen mind, I'm there
    And with a sullen mind, I laid down
    And with a sullen mind, I'm out of here

    I’m cast in a corner bar and you’d tell me
    That I can go out any night with no money
    And I can only turn to walk away, because I only have a Christian education

    And with a sullen mind, I carry you
    And with a sullen mind, I'm fair
    And with a sullen mind, I laid down
    And with a sullen mind, I'm out of here

    Seventeen past three, and I’m waiting on a friend
    He owes me cigarrettes, and I owe him gasoline
    Half past four, and the speed is kicking in
    Honey, come on over and I’ll show you where I begin

    And with a sullen mind, I carry you
    And with a sullen mind, I'm there
    And with a sullen mind, I laid down
    And with a sullen mind, I'm out of here
