Pistolero Blues

Look at me

I’m an animal

Somebody stop me

Before I hurt myself

Before I hurt someone else

‘Cause thoughts like these

Can only hurt someone

---

I love my wife

but I miss falling in love

holdin’ hands

touchin’ thumbs

protectin’ one another

from the cold

when it ain’t even cold

I’m bad for myself

Yeah, I’m bad for myself

I ain’t done much good for no one else

But I’m plain bad for myself

---

I like this town

but I can’t wait to up and move

the things we’ve done and seen we’re good

but I ain’t one to plant no roots

And it’s gettin harder to feel

The way I need to feel

For me to be who I need to be

---

I’ll miss this life

But it just never felt real right

To eat and drink the way we do

When I used to have to fight not to starve

I guess I just find it real hard

To get back to bein’ hard

When everything here’s so damn civilized

Yeah, it’s like I said

I’m bad for myself

I ain’t done much good for no one else

But I’m plain bad for myself

I’m liable to hurt someone else

And I’m plain bad for myself
