Track Name: St. Louis
I drove down to St. Louis
And I stole my mother's car
Cracked the windshield
And I left it in a bean field
Wasn't going very far

I tore towers on your doorstep
And I got myself a gun
Cut your house down
Did not spare me no not one round
So you know you're the only one

Darling, don't you remember where you ought to be right now?

All the houses down on Orange Street
Are painted boxes made of wood
And on the inside
They don't spare me no not one mind
Girl, I'm praying that you could

Darling, don't you remember where you ought to be right now?
Track Name: The Only Two Men Alive (St. Louis B Side)
What will I do when all my organ fail,
fog fills the room and my spirit grows pale?
The debt that I leave will swallow your soul.
The last breath I breathe will have plenty lungs more.

You missed me at mass, asleep in the pews,
the birds in my beard and my wife's new perfume.
But don't feel alone, you know I'm watching you.
I've slipped off my silhouette. I'm watching you.

Don't let the name on my grave wash away.
Don't let the flood flush out my remains.
If I am a man, if I am a man
then don't you forget me if I am a man.
If I am a man, if I am a man
then don't you forgive for what I have been.
