Bullwhip Road

I am no good for you I can do no right
I’ve written you this song
He looks so peaceful now in his new white suit
Not like he used to be
Up half the night with his sunglasses on
Out half the night and staggering home at dawn

They brought him back
He’s seen the stars
Now he’s back on Bullwhip Road

Maybe he learned to love prison bars and pain
Seems like we’ll never know
So take him away in your your wagon of grey
Past the fights in the streets to the shade of the cypress tree

They brought him back
He’s seen the stars
Now he’s back on Bullwhip Road

They brought him back
He’s in a blue plastic sack
On Bullwhip Road

I hate the world
I hate my life and this song
Now run along
