John Moreland - Sallisaw Blue lyrics

One, two, one, go Arkansas River, Sallisaw blue This town never seen nothin’ like you They got silver spoons for American gods I wanna be stoned, thrown American rods I don’t own anything, you don’t know sh** With your bloodshot eyes giving my black heart fits There’s a neon sign that says ‘big bad love’ And a noose hanging down from the heavens above It’s no use, God bless these blues Let’s get wrecked and bruised and battered I need you, come on, burn right through Honey, show me I’m not shattered Down for the count, along for the ride Sipping cold medicine, ruining our lives Slumming I-40 with American songs They can bury our bodies in American wrongs
