The Nameless One

Album: Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies (2013)
  • Wake up baby and taste the dirt
    We're six feet under and still in love
    The day has come
    We belong with the living dead of the night
    The day has come
    We belong with the living dead of the night

    Hear the outlaw ghoul and his cane
    Crashing our casket to find his way
    The day has come
    We belong with the living dead of the night

    Hold on to me baby
    His bony hands will do you no harm
    It say in the cards we lost our soul to the nameless one

    Wake up my darlings your time is up
    Follow my riders into the dark
    The day has come
    We belong with the living dead of the night

    Hold on to me baby
    His bony hands will do you no harm
    It says in the cards we lost our soul to the nameless one

    Long time ago
    You called upon the tombstones
    Gambling with your soul for nothing
    And now you're walking through the valley of the death

    But see how beautiful you are
    Skinny blue and grey in love
    You'll walk among the outlaw bandits
    Until you meet the nameless one

    Hold on to me baby
    His bony hands will do you no harm
    It said in the cards we lost our soul to the nameless one

    Hold on to me baby
    His bony hands will do you no harm
    It said in the cards we lost our soul to the nameless one
