Radial growls to greet the dawn
As she crawls across the farms
Pistons barking at the sun
Howling to be unleashed
And running free

Slice the mist with my vortices
Gallop ‘cross the dewy field
Prop blades gnaw at gravity’s leash
As rag wings claw the sky
Until we climb

Please Lord save me a patch of blue
So I can gain some altitude
Find some flying friends
And share a joke or two.

Driving Merle’s silver wings
Flying far from home
Heading off for parts unknown
Where I hope to find
Peace of mind

Smashing bugs and chasing trains
As I buzz across the plains
Clipping clouds and racing rain
To a friendly patch of grass
Where I can land

Please Lord save me a patch of blue
So I can gain some altitude
Find some flying friends
And share a joke or two.

And on that day when I go west
Leavin’ behind Nebraska’s dust
Let the angels sing a warbirds song
And fill my days with barnstorm dreams

Who can you blame when all your dreams
Stay lost in the dark of night?
Where can you turn to when hope
Fades away in the morning light?
No matter how hard it storms
You can never cry away the rain.
No matter how bad you’re hurting
You can never curse away the pain.

Spending your days
Searching for any easy way
Leads to a hard road

Who can you trust that’s reaching out
To lift you up off your knees?
How can you know a helping hand
Won’t clench in a fist to steal?
No one ever promised you
Keeping faith won’t take some sweat.
No one ever guaranteed you
Freedom comes without a debt

Spending your days
Searching for any easy way
Leads to a hard road

No one ever promised you
Keeping faith won’t take some sweat.
No one ever guaranteed you
Freedom comes without a debt

Spending your days
Searching for any easy way
Leads to a hard road

Spending your days
Searching for any easy way
Leads to a hard road

Your love is like a sliver sticking under my skin
Since ya ran off with a lover down to New Orleans
Gonna chase you down the Mississippi River my sweet
With a forty-four magnum layin’ under my seat
I got an ache from love
I got a taste for lead
Cause I’ll love ya darlin’
Love ya till the day that you’re dead

Gotta a four twenty-seven growlin’ under the hood
Pullin’ outa Memphis in an ugly mood
The Louisiana bayou won’t be big enough
To hide you, honey, cause I’m callin’ your bluff
I got an ache from love
I got a taste for lead
Cause I’ll love ya darlin’
Love ya till the day that you’re dead

Black Talons twinkle in the southern moonlight
Sleepin’ in the chambers till the time is right
They dream of finding heaven in a hardened heart
Mendin’ and revengin’ all the hurt in my scars
I got an ache from love
I got a taste for lead
Cause I’ll love ya darlin’
Love ya till the day that you’re dead

The river chase is over and I’m heading out west
I’ll find another life on the plains of Texas
When the river rises up and the levee floods
It’ll wash away my love as it sweeps away your blood
I had an ache from love
I had a taste for lead
Cause I loved ya darlin’
Loved ya till the day you were dead
