JASON ISBELL Cigarettes And Wine

Welcome to thetheologyofjoe Lyrics JASON ISBELL Cigarettes And Wine Lyrics, singer by JASON ISBELL

I saw her in Roosevelt Springs, where time doesn’t touch anything
She never did say she could sing, but I figured it so
I needed some company then, not sisters or children or men
That’s a hell of a spot to be in, but she put me in tow

Money and liquor and lust had taken my heart and my trust
I could see ashes and dust were headed my way
She tended bar in the town
Her alto settled me down
I started hanging around
Didn’t need much to say

She smelled like cigarettes and wine
And she kept me happy all the time
I know that ain’t much of a line
but it’s the Gods’ own truth
She lives down inside of me still
Rolled up like a twenty dollar bill
She left me alone with these pills
In the last of my youth

Wings on her shoulders and feet, a bar on Gethsemane Street
I took time to plan my retreat, and backed out the door
I must be attracted to those who’ve witnessed a man in the throes
Of life that ain’t grindstone to nose, but pedal to floor

She smelled like cigarettes and wine
And she kept me happy all the time
I know that ain’t much of a line
But it’s the Gods’ own truth
She lives down inside of me still
Rolled up like a twenty dollar bill
She left me alone with these pills
In the last of my youth

Lost on the dry side of town
My memories slowing me down
She shook me and I came around
I came back to life
With nary a mother or dad
She showed me what I never had
The princess of leaves, she gets sad
‘Cause I won’t take a wife

She smelled like cigarettes and wine
And she kept me happy all the time
I know that ain’t much of a line
But it’s the Gods’ own truth
She lives down inside of me still
Rolled up like a twenty dollar bill
She left me alone with these pills
In the last of my youth
