Lucero Sing Me No Hymns

The rain’ll wash away the piss and blood

But the water’s not enough

To wash away the things that I’ve done

So I just keep on moving all the same

The mountains they ain’t far

And up there they don’t know my name

Sing me no hymns

When I get home

Leave them with god

Leave me alone

I will do as I feel need be done

To pay back what I owe

For all the blood and all the lost ones

Until I feel the proper time has come

Leave me be and let me drink

I need none of your good intentions

Lucero Johnny Davis

Johnny Davis never let us down

Started up on the west side of town

By the 60s the midwest was ours

The bike’s a body and John was the heart

Meetings and the races and the women looked good

Raising hell and living like nobody else would

Johnny Davis never let us down

Since he’s gone the boys are different now

Hang on, hang on, we’re going for a ride

Hang on, hang on, it’s alright

These streets are ours to take

Faster than trouble

Too fast to fade

Johnny never backed down from a fight

By the end we lived in changing times

The new guys thought that they were movie stars

After `69 it fell apart

Edges of an empty parking lot it rained chrome

Johnny in the middle stood his ground and fought alone

Johnny could took em one on one

But his young rival simply pulled a gun

Hang on, hang on, we’re going for a ride

Hang on, hang on, it’s alright

These streets are ours to take

Faster than trouble

Too fast to fade

You live the life you love, you love the life you live

Maybe that’s enough honey to get us out of this

Build it up to speed, Give it all it needs

In the end it knocks you down and throws you in the weeds

If what you say is true, hell sometimes you gotta lose

Hang on, hang on, we’re going for a ride

Hang on, hang on, it’s alright

These streets are ours to take

Faster than trouble

Too fast to fade

Lucero The Other Side Of Lonesome

A hundred miles on the other side of lonesome

A hundred miles past anything called fair

Ain’t no need to question my devotion

For the girl I love, all burdens will I bare.

Oh, sweet Mary, where’d you go?

Kissed your lips just days ago

Now it seems I’m steady wasting time.

A hundred miles of empty road

Worn out hearts and teeth of gold

Feel like I could just lay down and die

On the other side.

Lonesome Dogtown nights

There’s a girl waiting for me by and by

on the other side

Lonesome Dogtown nights

There’s a girl that I cannot leave behind.

A hundred miles on the other side of lonesome

A hundred miles past any kind of plan

All I know is I can drink an ocean

of whiskey if I can’t see her again.

Oh, sweet Mary, where’d you go?

Kissed your lips just days ago

Now it seems I’m steady wasting time.

A hundred miles of empty road

Worn out hearts and teeth of gold

Feel like I can just lay down and die

on the other side.

Lonesome Dogtown nights

There’s a girl waiting for me by and by

on the other side

Lonesome Dogtown nights

There’s a girl that I cannot leave behind.

Come on down and sit a while

I just covered a hundred miles

Think I’ll sit right here and drink my fill

Yesterday’s gone with the wind

Tomorrow’s on its way again

figure it’ll bring just what it will.

Oh, sweet Mary, where’d you go?

Kissed your lips just days ago

Now it seems I’m steady wasting time.

A hundred miles of empty road

Worn out hearts and teeth of gold

Feel like I can just lay down and die

on the other side.

Lonesome Dogtown nights

There’s a girl waiting for me by and by

on the other side

Lonesome Dogtown nights

There’s a girl that I cannot leave behind

Lucero Anjalee

I’ll be leaving with the morning light.

Don’t know when I’ll be back this way.

For proper farewells I ain’t got the time.

I’s never good at saying goodbye anyway.

Watch over my family for me.

Tell ’em I cant stop to rest.

Don’t tell ’em bout how I’m lonely.

Tell my Anjalee I love her best.

When I get home I will make things right.

Gonna make it work somehow.

Right now its outta reach but it ain’t outta sight.

Each step away brings it that much closer now.

Don’t let ’em know that I’m tired.

Don’t tell ’em this is all thats left.

Say soon I’ll be back beside her.

Tell my Anjalee I love her best.

Further down the road my fortune lies.

Though thats never how I planned it.

So I leave my home with the morning light.

Won’t come back here empty handed.

Watch over my family for me.

Tell ’em I cant stop to rest.

Don’t tell ’em bout how I’m lonely.

Tell my Anjalee I love her best.

Lucero When You Decided To Leave

When you decided to leave

I never asked where you’d gone

When you decided to leave

I left you alone

It don’t mean much to me

What all you did while you’re gone

It don’t mean much to me

As long as you come home

I try to be a good man

But I’ve done so wrong for so long

I don’t know if I can

Help but be a bad man

I know that you loved me once

And I took for granted the time

I know that you loved me once

When you were mine

When you decided to leave

I was so young and so bold

And then you decided to leave

I got tired and old

I try to be a good man

But I’ve done so wrong for so long

I don’t know if I can

Help but be a bad man

Lucero Ain’t So Lonely

Well she smiles oh so sweetly

And I ain’t so lonely

And she acts just like she don’t need me

And I ain’t so lonely

We drive down to the corner drug store

And I ain’t so lonely

Coca-cola pills; take a few more

And I ain’t so lonely

It’s been a while since I was nineteen

Been a while since I’ve seen myself act like such a fool

How long must this go on tonight?

By myself on a long drive home

And I ain’t so lonely

’cause I like hearing the sad songs

And I ain’t so lonely

Lucero Can’t You Hear Them Howl

At dusk you see them gather on the edge of town

Cold winter, long nights

And they’ll be coming for you when the sun goes down

You can’t run, can’t hide

Wolves wait outside your door

Getting restless and I cannot feed them anymore

Woods are empty they’ve been running through the town

You know they’re hungry honey can’t you hear them howl?

Can’t you hear them howl?

Can’t you hear them howl…

Things have changed around here girl since you’ve been gone

Cold winter, long nights

And now you spend your evenings waiting for the dawn

Can’t run, can’t hide

Wolves wait outside your door

Getting restless and I cannot feed them anymore

It wouldn’t do for them to catch you’re out

You know they’re hungry honey can’t you hear them howl?

Can’t you hear them howl?

Can’t you hear them howl…

You’d say anything to get you out of here

But take it easy darling cause you know they smell the fear

You’re always honest but you’re answers always wrong

Careful girl another winter’s coming on

Winter’s coming on

With the long nights

Wolves wait outside your door

They’re getting restless and I cannot feed them anymore

Woods are empty they’ve been running through the town

You know they’re hungry honey can’t you hear them howl?

Can’t you hear them howl?

Can’t you hear them howl…

Lucero Watch It Burn

You said you’re tired of this goddamn town.

You said you’re gonna burn it all down.

Drive your car to the end of the bridge.

Sit and watch the smoke rise.

Lay on your hood at the top of the ridge.

Gonna watch it all burn tonight…

Well alright.

You said you fell for a boy at the bar.

Only thing burning was the flame in your heart.

Drive your car to the end of the bridge.

Sit and watch the sun rise.

Lay on your hood at the top of the ridge.

Gonna fall in love tonight …

Well alright.

You said you’re tired of this goddamned town.

You said you’re gonna burn it all down.

You said you fell for a boy at the bar.

Only thing burning was the love in your heart.

C’mon baby lets watch it all burn.

C’mon baby lets watch it all burn.

C’mon baby lets watch it all burn.

C’mon baby lets watch it all burn.

Lucero In Lonesome Times

In lonesome times

I picture your face

It’s so easy to find

But you’re so hard to please

In lonesome times

I still hear your voice

Brings me to my knees

With the feelings I can not avoid

Well I don’t find much comfort going out at night

Walking these streets beneath the bright city lights

And the dark country roads don’t take me no where

And I’m stuck, and I’m tired,

and it ain’t no fair to be this worn out

To feel this low down

In lonesome times.

In lonesome times, I still feel you breath

Quietly in the dark

As you lay there next to me

And I don’t find much comfort going out at night,

beneath the bright city light,

and the dark country roads don’t take me nowhere,

And I’m stuck, and I’m tired,

and it ain’t no fair to be this worn out

To feel this low down

In lonesome times

In Lonesome times

In lonesome times

Lucero Little Silver Heart

You’re too sweet to let go of

But I don’t need to fall in love

Now I’m too tired to talk my way out of this one

It’s a losing game I’ve had enough

It’s too late to make things right

And there ain’t no strength left in this heart of mine

Now we make quite a pair

But we never got our share of good times

It sure felt nice

Little silver heart

That you once adored

And you don’t wear my heart

Around your neck no more

You’re too good for this game of mine

And girl I know I never treat you right

Just a little silver heart

Send my lucky star

On a little silver chain

Valentine

Little silver heart

That you once adored

And you don’t wear my heart

Around your neck no more

All the tears were cried for you

Don’t mean a thing

All the tears were cried for me

Just won’t change me
