lyrics

Listen

Be quiet now for a minute, honey, don’t say a single word let me talk to you
I gotta tell you something, I gotta be heard, this is what I gotta do
‘Cause there’s someones blood on the ground
and pretty soon I’m gonna have to leave town
So, let me ask you one time, woman
Just Listen

They’ll ask you questions, say bad things about me, it’s all lies
No tell them nothing, say you don’t where I’d be, it’s all a surprise
Then run home and lock the windows and doors
And don’t let no one in no more
When the phone rings, it’ll be me calling you asking one more time
Just Listen

Give the baby three kisses for me, tell junior I love him, then go grab my gun
Pack up your bags, get in the car, and then ride with the sun
You’ll start to see a blue mist in the air
And there won’t be nobody near
You’ll hear no sound but the old coyotes groan
and Just Listen

Now my time is up, well, I love you honey, but I gotta go
I won’t be coming back no more, so here’s the truth, here’s what you gotta know
When the gun smoke has cleared
Walk out onto that foggy pier
You’ll hear no sound but my voice echo in the ghostly wind, it’ll moan the truth, don’t think
Just Listen
