JOHNNY CASH lyrics - Everybody Loves A Nut

Austin Prison

Original and similar lyrics
They had a warrant out for me all over the country And I was trying to beat the raps in Idaho I was breaking into a schoolhouse Sunday morning without warning When I saw the sheriff coming for me slow from down below His steel grey eyes were blazing when he saw me His hand was on his gun when he rode up He said you killed that woman I know you shot her why'd you do it I'm taking you to Austin then I'm gonna lock you up Well he tied me with a plow line the next morning And he had me deep in Texas the next day A crazy screaming lynch mob waited in the streets of Austin But he put me in the jailhouse and he threw the key away A jury found me guilty three months later twelve evil men with murder in their eyes They even took me out and said now show us where you killed her And that wicked judge said now I here by sentence you to die But here I am far away from Austin prison my friend the jailer handed me a file Now all I want between me and there are a lot of friendly people And miles and miles and miles and miles and miles and miles and miles

Not There

JAMES "Strip-Mine"
Hello Swig from the bottle, now who's sucking who You'd prefer the nipple, but your teeth have cut through Defects we're born with, but poisons we choose He' s not there, just a gap in the air He's not there, just the smell of despair He's not there Pill-popping and a pint-pulling And a thirst-quenching, mind-bending Pill-popping and a pint-pulling And a thirst-quenching, mind-bending Pill-popping and a knife-pulling People come knocking, but there's no one at home Did you get my call, oh you haven't a phone That look in your eyes, it's miles away Don't look in your eyes, you are miles away He's not there he's really not there Oh, people come knocking but there's no one at home Did you get my call, oh you haven't a phone That look in your eyes, it's miles away That look in your eyes, it's miles away He's not there he's really not there

Crazy Wind

JAMES MCMURTRY "Too Long In The Wasteland"
Gone off in the pitch-black dark To work the morning tour He's halfway to the highway And he won't be back for hours His tail lights down the gravel road You watch them round the bend Nothing's on the TV But something's in the wind And it makes you crazy And it makes you blue It's a restless feeling And it's nothing new Listen to the buzzing Of the June bugs and the flies The sink's all full of dishes You might just let 'em lie You might just pour yourself a drink And sit outside awhile He won't miss the whiskey He knows it's not your style And he don't care enough To even wonder why You fight off his fumbling hands With daggers in your eyes Time sure flies when you're having fun Wasn't it just yesterday you turned twenty-one Does it still matter what you might have done Had you tried His bird dogs in their wire cage Are barking at the moon You turn the covers back And hope the dawn don't come too soon Draw the shades to keep your dark eyes From the glare of the vapor light But the sheets are cool and empty And you won't sleep tonight With a half moon rising And a warm gusty breeze Blowing from the southwest Whispering in the trees The asphalt 'neath the tires Makes a hollow whining sound And it stretches on forever Through a thousand little towns With their stores all dark and silent And their flashing yellow lights And nobody sees your passing In the fury of your flight You'll see them later Some other day Self preservation What can you say Time sure flies when you're having fun Your mind's all made up now and it's all said and done Flying down the four lane with the morning sun In your eyes

Synchronicity II

THE POLICE "Synchronicity"
Another suburban family morning Grandmother screaming at the wall We have to shout above the din of our Rice Crispies We can't hear anything at all Mother chants her litany of boredom and frustration But we know all her suicides are fake Daddy only stares into the distance There's only so much more that he can take Many miles away Something crawls from the slime At the bottom of a dark Scottish lake Another industrial ugly morning The factory belches filth into the sky He walks unhindered through the picket lines today He doesn't think to wonder why The secretaries pout and preen like cheap tarts in a red light street But all he ever thinks to do is watch And every single meeting with his so-called superior Is a humiliating kick in the crotch Many miles away Something crawls to the surface Of a dark Scottish lake Another working day has ended Only the rush hour hell to face Packed like lemmings into shiny metal boxes Contestants in a suicidal race Daddy grips the wheel and stares alone into the distance He knows that something somewhere has to break He sees the family home now looming in the headlights The pain upstairs that makes his eyeballs ache Many miles away There's a shadow on the door Of a cottage on the shore Of a dark Scottish lake Many miles away, many miles away

Eyes Of A Child

SOUL ASYLUM
She had 13 kids each one had 13 problems 3 uppers 10 downers just to put up with this And she don't know which children belong to which father But she loves them all anyways and they each get a kiss And the toilet ain't flushin' And the toaster is smokin The vacuum don't suck But it needs a new belt But she saw the world through the eyes of a child And remembers how it good it was And how good it felt He picks up the paper in the bitter cold morning He had just gone to sleep, he had to get up for work By morning he's a watchman, by night he's a waitor In the late afternoon he works as a clerk And he can't pay the doctor bills, he just can't afford the pills The car's repossessed, and the child support's due But he saw the world through the eyes of a child Big problems seemed smaller And old things seemed new Well, She was just six when she turned her first trick But,now she's 13 and it don't make her sick And she does lots of chrystal and she owns her own pistol Got a goldfish named Silver And a pimp who's named Rick And some are like customers,and some are like patients She'd have gone back to school, if she just had the patience She saw the world through the eyes of a child None of the nightmares and nothing to deny Yes she saw the world And she's seen it all and she knows They're all lies

4 A.M.

ALEX G "Found"
It’s pouring rain at 4 a.m. I feel so close to you right now But have you fallen for me yet? I’d let you go but I don’t know how And I know it’s just another night But I fell for you again And I remember when You didn’t wanna waste a moment You were captured in my arms And stolen by my eyes It’s still your heart that lifts me And your words that can kill me But still I’d run for miles Just to be near you Oh ohhh… Your presence lingers on my neck I can’t let go of you right now I’m kinda scared of what comes next I might just die if you forget And I know it’s just another night but I fell for you again And I remember when You didn’t wanna waste a moment You were captured in my arms And stolen by my eyes It’s still your heart that lifts me And your words that can kill me But still I’d run for miles You cut me open And you fill me with this hope When you know this whole thing’s hopeless And I’m hopelessly hoping That you will see What lies inside of me It’s pouring rain at 4 a.m. I feel so close to you right now And I don’t wanna waste this moment Captured in your arms And stolen by your eyes eyes It’s still your heart that lifts me And your words that can kill me But still I’d run for miles So close so close now Don’t let go let go now Won’t you fall for me tonight? It’s still your heart that lifts me And your words that can kill me But still I’d run for miles Just to be near you
