I walk by with a big ole gin
I've seen trouble and I've seen sin
If you're seeing me I better see you again

My heart cold as the railroad line
Cold as the steel when it's screaming by
I make good loving and I waste no time with sin

I walk by with a big old smile
I've seen blood and I've seen trial
I hang tight in the trenches, that is where I lay

She drink hard and she love the night
I say filthy fuck I might
Walk the line just a little too close to the rail

I caught my fish at home
Sifting through that bitter cold
My creedence left me humble though I'm drained

I walk by with a big old frown
I've been beat up and I've been knocked down
I've been pushed to the edge where I'm broke, broken and shamed

And I know that love is blind
But i said familiar of a different kind
I could send this letter but I'd rather let it steal ya

I walk by with a mean old mug
I've been hated and I've been loved
I've been stood up, stuck up and stuck out in the rain.

She held her keys in a worried fashion
Late night loving in a dirty bathroom
Room teasing her skin's pressed hot cross mine

I walk by with a head of problems
A bottle of bourbon and the devil's calling
Like hell he's crawling back this morning

She tell me oh god it's storming
The sky is falling, kill the vermin
My mind is warping back in a pattern courting

I walk by with a pint of whiskey
Kind of feeling like why'd she miss me
I'm a jester, she's a queen amongst the ruins

I played cards with a mean old gypsy
Who stole the nails from Jesus' rigging
Claims she ain't at fault for none of this sinning
