Full Of Aces

Headin` out west in my 5.0,
Thinkin` I still love who I let go,
Got a dream and I need to spill it,
Before I rest, sleep or sit still,

Now it looks like Lubbock will be comin` soon,
Looks like my luck will lead me to ruin,
Need more money,
Need a beer,
Left a girl now I need her here.

The cards came up and he was full of nines,
I`ll find my way, but not tonight.

So I`m heading for ocean, the one to the left,
The windows are open like the wound in my chest,
Wind and rattles, I`m humming with them
Those radio towers, have got no rhythm.

The cards came up and he was full of deuces,
I`ll find my way, if I ever get through this.

And it`ll take all night, to run back to who I ran from,
It`ll take all my life, to raise up and pay the ransom,
But I`ll kiss her one more time I don`t care if she hits me,
And I`ll wear this highway down to a size that fits me,
And I`ll curse you Henry Ford for ever doing this to me,
At least I`m still moving,
I`m still moving,

And I`m rollin` at ninety,
Sippin` the coffee,
A few things behind me,
But nothing`s on top of me,
Got a secret and I want to spill it,
A stain on my jeans and a swallowed pill,
Now it looks like Vegas will be comin` soon,
Looks like my luck will lead me to ruin,
Top is down,
Nerves are shot,
But I`m flying this solo,
Ready or not,

Cards came up and he was full of Jacks,
I can make her mad but I can`t get her back.

And it`ll take all night, to run back to who I ran from,
It`ll take all my life, to raise up and pay the ransom,
But I`ll kiss her one more time I don`t care if she hits me,
And I`ll wear this highway down to a size that fits me,
And I`ll fool myself and I`ll tell myself I`m not losing.
Just cause I`m still moving,
I`m still moving,

And when the cards came up, the dude was full of Aces,
I`ll find my way, but I`ll never shake this,
Feeling that running`s,
The only hope I have,
The only dream I`ve had,
The only love in my life.
