High and Lonesome

by Rebecca Loebe

 

it’s another night in the only type of hotel i can afford

the walls all lean on crooked ceilings falling to the floor

it's 2:15 and this front desk queen is hardly amused

she glares at me, imprints a key and points me to my room

drift away knowing

 

you be high and i be lonesome

i'll get by in some roadside motel room

you be high and i be lonesome tonight

oh tonight

 

spent seven seasons in the minor leagues just waitin' for the show

work a day of it you might say it's the dumbest job you know

but that ain’t fair there's folks out there who hate the roads they hoe

plus lion tamers, nancy grace and the folks that chase tornadoes...

(those are dumber jobs)

 

you be high and i be lonesome

i'll get by in some roadside motel room

you be high and i be lonesome tonight

oh tonight

 

you’ll be far and i’ll be distant

i’ll pick fights and you’ll resist ‘em

quietly we’ll let be bygones

truths that hiss like ticking time bombs

 

you be high and i be lonesome

i'll get by in some roadside motel room

you be high and i be lonesome tonight

oh tonight
