SHOOTER JENNINGS lyrics - The Other Life

The White Trash Song

Original and similar lyrics
Wake up every morning, by the break of dawn Hear that rooster crowing, I feel so all alone Honey suckle outside my window, dew sparkling on the vine Little squirrels is a'barking Like they thought they was a mountain-lion I get to thinking about the road, all the times I've been back again I was born a child of these muddy roads I guess I'll die here lonesome as the wind Cause all my cars are broke down Laying in my front yard I ought to get one together But the work just seems too hard A man come 'round this morning, Wanting to paint my barn Paint it "See it Rock City, US Highway 41" Ladies and gentlemen - Mr. Scott H Biram Well Shooter, I used to have me a church woman Oh just as pretty as can be Aww, but she ran off with Jimmy Swaggart Up in Nashville Tennessee So I drink me a whole lot of liquor And I drink me a whole lot of booze I'm a midnight country-rambler And I ain't got nothing to lose I ain't got nothing to lose boys I wake up in the mornings Laying in the jail My head will be hurting I won't be feeling too well That old fat-bellied sheriff come talking up to me He wanna know how it felt: Not being free? I said didn't matter much, Didn't hurt at all I'd rather be locked up in jail in hell, than be a fat bellied cop! A man come 'round this morning, Wanting to paint my barn Paint it "See it Rock City, US Highway 41" [repeat]

Starkville City Jail

JOHNNY CASH "At San Quentin"
Well, I left my motel room, down at the Starkville Motel, The town had gone to sleep and I was feelin' fairly well. I strolled along the sidewalk 'neath the sweet magnolia trees; I was whistlin', pickin' flowers, swayin' in the southern breeze. I found myself surrounded; one policeman said: "That's him. Come along, wild flower child. Don't you know that it's two a.m." They're bound to get you. 'Cause they got a curfew. And you go to the Starkville City jail. Well, they threw me in the car and started driving into town; I said: "What the hell did I do?" He said: "Shut up and sit down." Well, they emptied out my pockets, took my pills and guitar picks. I said: "Wait, my name is..." "Awe shut up." Well, I sure was in a fix. The sergeant put me in a cell, then he went home for the night; I said: "Come back here, you so and so; I ain't bein' treated right." Well, they're bound to get you, cause they got a curfew, And you go to the Starkville City Jail. I started pacin' back and forth, and now and then I'd yell, And kick my forty dollar shoes against the steel floor of my cell. I'd walk awhile and kick awhile, and all night nobody came. Then I sadly remembered that they didn't even take my name. At 8 a.m. they let me out. I said: "Gimme them things of mine!" They gave me a sneer and a guitar pick, and a yellow dandelion. They're bound to get you, 'cause they got a curfew, And you go to the Starkville City Jail.

Committed To Parkview

JOHNNY CASH "One Piece At A Time"
There's a man across the hall who sits staring at the floor, He thinks he's Hank Williams; hear him singing through the door. There's a girl in 203, who stops by to visit me, And she talks about her songs and the star that she should be. There are lots of special people staying in or passing through: And for one thing or another, committed to Parkview. There's a girl in 307, coming down on Thorazine. And a superstar's ex-drummer trying to kick Benzedrine. There's a boy just down below me, who's the son of some well-known: He was brought in by his mother, 'cos his daddy's always gone. There's a bum from down on Broadway and then a few quite well-to-do's: Who have withdrawn from the rat race and committed to Parkview. There's a girl who cries above me, loud enough to wake the dead. They don't know what she has taken that has scrambled up her head. There's a writer and a singer who has tried and tried and tried: They just brought him in this morning, an attempted suicide. There are those that never made it, those that did but now are through: Some came of their own good choosing: some committed to Parkview. They wake us about 6: 30, just before the morning meal. While they're taking blood pressure, they ask us how we feel. And I always say: "Fantastic! There ain't nothing wrong with me." And then they give me my injection and I go right back to sleep. And my days are kind of foggy and my nights are dreamy too: But they're taking good care of me: committed to Parkview.
