Sleeping on the Blacktop

This song is by Colter Wall and appears on the album Imaginary Appalachia (2015).

Sunshine beating on the good times
Moonlight raising from the grave
String band playing worn out honkey-tonks
Pretty young thing going dancing in the rain

High-heeled lady spitting at the nick-a-jacks
Business man with a needle and a spoon
Coyote chewing on a cigarette
Pack o' young boys going howlin' at the moon

Hey darlin', sleeping on the blacktop
Hey darlin', running through the trees honey
Hey darlin', leaving for the next town
Lessen my sense catches up with me

Three dead in a crash on the number 4
Two witnesses blown up high
Not sure who's will be done
You can call me a sinner for wondering why

Hey darlin', sleeping on the blacktop
Hey darlin', running through the trees honey
Hey darlin', leaving for the next town
Lessen my sense catches up with me

Corn liquour tastes sweeter in this town
Could it be it's the same as the last
I swear I've seen ya face elsewhere before
Just as familiar as a bottle and a glass

Hey darlin', sleeping on the blacktop
Hey darlin', running through the trees honey
Hey darlin', leaving for the next town
Lessen my sense catches up with me

Hey darlin', sleeping on the blacktop
Hey darlin', running through the trees honey
Hey darlin', leaving for the next town
Lessen my sense catches up with me

Lessen my sense catches up with me
