Track Name: Long Way Home
A dreadlocked girl in a homemade dress
She took a whirl on a sweet caress
Now a baby sleeps by her side
And she can’t decide when her dreams all died

Its such a long way home
In the dark of night all alone.
She walks the streets of the Marigny
Looking for some hidden key

He left Tulsa on a greyhound bus
Early one morning without much fuss
Now he sleeps on the street of dreams
His hope as tattered as his faded jeans

Its such a long way home
In the dark of night all alone.
She walks the streets of the Marigny
Looking for some hidden key

And they’re wonderin’ where to go
Just to find a little soul
But they’re holding out for love sweet love
To bring them home again

I came here searching for a bit of life
I had my dreams and I had my wife
Now my dreams are all that remain
But I’m still searching for that sweet refrain

Its such a long way home
In the dark of night all alone.
She walks the streets of the Marigny
Looking for some hidden key

And I’m still wondering where to go
To find a little soul
But I’m still holding out for love sweet love
To take me home again.
Track Name: Louisiana
Another rainy night in Louisiana
I’m headed back, from Texarkana
The last time I left here
I wasn’t coming home

I’ve been on this road, for one whole year
Won’t someone tell me when the coast is clear
I can see them laughing now
As they watch me falling

I was blind but know I see
The pieces of my soul you took from me
What will be they say must be
But I can’t stand
To watch this bayou rising when I’m on my knees

Another rainy night in Louisiana
I’m headed east to Alabama
I’m gone this time I swear
I’m never coming home

I was blind but know I see
The pieces of my soul you took from me
What will be they say must be
But I can’t stand
To watch this bayou rising when I’m on my knees
Track Name: My Sin
Wanderin’ 'round
The east side of town
Wondering where you could be

I try to recall
Damn near anything at all
The memory that could be the key

I can still see the chrome
In the headlight that shone
Reflect the warm bar room lights

The strip was too long
And now you are gone
And I can’t get you back in my sights

Now I don’t know
Where I should go
Or how I can find you again.
What could it be?
And why can’t I see?
And how bad could be my sin?

The night it was dark
A careless remark
I’m drunk and I’m searching for you.

The whiskey lied
And that beer made me snide
And I said things I cannot undo

[chorus]

At times it seems
I’ve blown all of my dreams
And heartache is my destiny

I miss the smile in your eyes
But I cannot surmise
A way to bring you back to me.
Track Name: The Fall
Rats in the sewers
Rats in City Hall
Rats on the streets at night
Gris gris on my wall

I’ve seen some shit down here
That’ll blow your mind
Men broken in the dark of night
Women bleedin’ wine

I step out of my room at night
Hang around the corner barroom door
I’ve been inside before
But I don’t go there any more

I walk South Salcedo St.
And North Dorgenois
Tryin’ to find my way back to
The time before my fall

I step out of my room at night
Hang around the corner barroom door
I don’t need to go inside
She don’t come here any more
She don’t come ‘round here no more
