Steve Earle

Album: Love On The Inside (2008)
  • One more

    Well I heard Steve Earle had a lot of wives
    About as many as cats have lives
    Met him on a tractor
    And we're good friends

    He writes a song for everyone
    They fall in love and before it's done
    He writes an even better one
    When it ends

    Well I don't have to take your name
    And you won't have to take the plane

    [Chorus]
    Steve Earle, Steve Earle
    Please write a song for me
    I promise I won't take a dime
    When it comes my time to leave
    The others wanted your whole heart
    I just wanted your sleeve
    Steve Earle, Steve Earle
    Please write a song for me

    Well I heard he loves each one the same
    As much as island loves the rain
    Steve, it rains at my house everyday

    He met them all at every port
    Falling in love is a pilgrim sport
    As long as I can be the pirate
    I'm ok

    You moved to the city baby you had to go
    I love apples
    And I can learn to love the snow

    [Chorus]

    Come on!

    I can walk around in your favorite shoes
    Just one line what do you got to lose
    And I don't bruise

    [Chorus]
