lyrics

Well the storms off the streets
The leaves are in the air
So dust your window curtains
and walk right down these stairs

Ain't your kisses I been missing
not your soft and rhythmic touch
Just this whiskey I been drinking
and the cash we'd make in love

Well It's just across the streets
From the stories I been told
But there ain't too many able
to keep it up alone

and I know that ain't - ain't much at all

At the Silver Dollar Table
I lost my last good sense
Sold my eyes down in Texas
Brought back the last week's rent

Kept going south Mexico
to loose my ball and chain
but I drove back up from Georgia
just to tie you down again

So double down my wages
put my house on up for sale
cause I've been feeling lucky
since I walked right out of jail

and you say that ain't - ain't much at all

They said it would be easy
they said it would be cheap
they said it'd keep me young
but I know it's out of reach

Well I can't go home
I take a hand at the cross
they can't track me baby
you know I'm already lost

but you can come and find me
by the whistle of my bones
and I guess you'll know it's me
cause I guess we're all alone

and I know that ain't - ain't much at all

It's just across the streets
from the stories I've been told
but there ain't to many able
to keep it up alone

and I know that ain't - ain't much at all
