Drunken Poet's Lullaby (Cole Allen/Nick Brumley)

Standin on the corner without a nickle or a dime

Sometimes two cents are the hardest to find

You can blame it on the women

blame it on your demons

or blame it on the wasted words and wasted nights

singin a Drunken Poet's Lullaby

I don't know

If I'll be home before the rooster crows

Distant dreams have got the best of me

Dancin' with the devil underneath Texas Street

You're a short stack in this big blind city

You could push it all in but you're bound to wind up empty

Are you bettin' against reason?

bettin' unbelieving?

bettin' when you should say goodbye?

A Drunken Poet's Lullaby

I don't know

If I'll be home before the rooster crows

All the King's Queens are waiting there to seduce me

Dancin' with the Aces underneath Texas Street

Will I make it out or will I disappear?

What good is a poet with words no one will hear?

I don't know

If I'll be home before the rooster crows

Tomorrow I'll try and get some sleep

but tonight I'm dancin' with the devil underneath Texas Street

dancing with the devil underneath the bridge at Texas Street
