Load me in with little teamsters I'll be alright Lay my head on a bed of poppies In yellow light Say a prayer for all my problems For mother’s sake Play a song by a Texas sovereign With feet of clay I'll be the last to know Out with the undertow Just let me slide Over the side You'll be the one I wait for Unmarried bride You'll be the one I look for And if you see the band The undertaker can drive the van
Long Face 03:43
Long face the highways cold and it's Okay tonight you're coming home home home Long face for all the good it brings Hold tight to all those little things gone gone Long face she's holding on Load up those cases amps and sinners Don't stop for broken hearted figures Go home alone Long face you're taken back and it's Too late for crossing bridges burned burned burned Long face you're wavering Long face you're coming back around Always. You're coming home and she's gone gone
All framed inside your mind The panoramic scenes you left behind Did they shoot you Well it’s alright Maybe you can recompose Did you fall down Well it’s alright Maybe you can get up close You say you’ll take ‘em all in May Then winter settles in like a stray All framed inside your head The shot you got, but left for dead
They got a little lift It’s not over She got a little gift When he got sober They got time on their side She got a tiny out He starts to wobble He let the Devil out Of that bottle They found a little rift One October She got a little gift When he went over She got time on her side He left time on her side He let the Devil out, of that bottle
Wrecking 02:59
Over and over and over again I am wrecking I’ll fall down again before I crawl Lord let me sleep But don’t let me dream Oh this wreck could be the one Over and over and over again I am wrecking And I’ll fall down again Before they crawl over me Crawl over me

John Velghe Baltimore, Maryland

From a friends ex-wife in Austin to a 4-year-old waitress in Lucas, KS to a transvestite railroad worker in Duluth, MN; Velghe populates his songs with real characters who’ve informed personal allegories about escape, transformation and fear. ... more
