  1. Sundowner

From the recording SPIRIT OF THE ROOM

Lyrics

Wakin up while the sun is sinkin,
Another night of heavy drinkin
My bones are battered, my body’s shaking
My thoughts are scattered and my brain is thinkin
Wohhh, gotta get some booze back in my blood
Wohhh, gotta get that taste while the night is young

Dry drained and droolin, think I’m still drunk and dreamin
Pour me a drink so I can drive off those demons
They tried to trick my mind, yeah, caused me some trouble
My eyes are trippin cuz their stuck seein double
Goddamn, I need a hammer to pound these feelings down
Stuck in a jam with only one way out
Thank God the day is dusted, so pass that bottle round
Don’t be disgusted when ya hear me shoutin

Ohhh, lost and lonesome, livin in a ghost town
Ohhh, locked and loaded, I’m screamin at the sundown
Ohhh, bruised and bloated, I’m barkin like a bloodhound
Ohhh, blind and burned, I’m waitin for the sun to go down

Wastin away as the twilight is gleamin
Dead to the day because I live for the evenin
I’m hangin over, my soul is grievin
Hate bein sober when my body is screamin
Wohhh, gotta get some booze back in my blood
Wohhh, gotta get that taste while the night is young

Wet my brain with that familiar feelin
Its down the hatch or maybe its up thru the ceilin
The day was evil, think I’ll get even
I’d better get ready cuz the sunlight is leavin

Ohhh, lost and lonesome, livin in a ghost town
Ohhh, locked and loaded, I’m screamin at the sundown
Ohhh, bruised and bloated, I’m barkin like a bloodhound
Ohhh, blind and burned, I’m waitin for the sun to go down





Ya know I got a drinkin problem that is eatin up my liver
But whenever I’m hungover I can feel my body wither
Like a thirsty javelina that is drinkin from a river run dry

When the sun is finally down I should be bathin in the liquor
Even though I know tomorrow I’ll be feelin even sicker
But the thought of some tequila makes me happy just to be alive

So tonight I think I’ll party, yes, I’m goin into battle
Where they’re clingin to the bottle like a horde of hungry cattle
I’ll be huntin down my prey like a buzzard in the lonely sky

I’ll be bummin cigarettes and stealin drinks at the cantina
Gettin drunk and makin friends with a girl from Pasadena
Who I’ll come to find out later ain’t a girl, she’s really a guy

There’s gonna be a fight if the faggot tries to kiss me goodnight

I’ll be tearin up the town and getting plastered with the ladies
I’ll be pissin on the bumper of some bastards old Mercedes
I’ll be runnin from the cops who try to stop me when I’m havin fun

I’ll be hangin at a party with a bunch of pleasure seekers
Who are sharin all their drugs with the junkies and the tweekers
I’ll be blowin out my brains with cocaine when the night is done

I’m waitin for tonight cuz I’m gonna have a real good time

Ohhh, lost and lonesome, livin in a ghost town
Ohhh, locked and loaded, I’m screamin at the sundown
Ohhh, bruised and bloated, I’m barkin like a bloodhound
Ohhh, blind and burned, I’m waitin for the sun to go down
