John Moreland – Sallisaw Blue (Big Bad Luv Album)

A neon sign that says ‘Big Bad Luv’
It’s no use, God bless these blues
This town never seen nothin’ like you
I need you, come on, burn right through
There’s a noose hanging down from the heavens above
Sipping cold medicine, ruining our lives
Slumming I-40 with American songs
I wanna be stoned, thrown American rods
Arkansas River, Sallisaw blue
Slumming I-40 with American songs

I don’t own anything, you don’t know shit
Let’s get wrecked and bruised and battered
There’s a neon sign that says ‘Big Bad Luv’

Honey, show me I’m not shattered
With your bloodshot eyes giving my black heart fits
They got silver spoons for American gods

Honey, show me I’m not shattered
It’s no use, God bless these blues
And a noose hanging down from the heavens above
Honey, show me I’m not shattered
Let’s get wrecked and bruised and battered

One, two, one, go

It’s no use, God bless these blues
I need you, come on, burn right through
I need you, come on, burn right through
Down for the count, along for the ride
They can bury our bodies in American wrongs
Let’s get wrecked and bruised and battered

Well, they bury our bodies in American wrongs, yeah
