"Driving South" by: Walter Rose
featuring: Lucinda Williams

My eyes tell me tales never seen
These shoes walk in lands I’ll never be
These empty bottles they just bind my feet
Something keeps me driving south where you might be

There's so many words I never had the strength to say
I feel your pain coming on my way
But there’s work to be done and there's lies to say
Little more seems to leave your mouth
And I can’t tell you what keeps me
Driving South

The sun only burns, won’t light my way
That Moonlight shines but she never seems to stay
My tongue’s been tied, my mind’s run a stray
I got nothing left but this head full of doubt
And I can’t tell you what keeps me
Driving South

So lock me up, gonna do my time
Cross my fingers, and blind my eyes
‘cause I’m bound in knots only you could tie
And I never did learn what you wanted taught
And it seems this love is gonna keep me
Driving South
