Shakey Graves I’m On Fire

Hey little girl is your daddy home

Did he go away and leave you all alone

I got a bad desire

I’m on fire

Tell me now baby is he good to you

Can he do to you the things that I do

I can take you higher

I’m on fire

Sometimes it’s like someone took a knife baby

Edgy and dull and cut a six-inch valley

Through the middle of my soul

At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet

And a freight train running through the

Middle of my head

Only you can cool my desire

I’m on fire

Shakey Graves Good Police

If I lived in a white home you could see the coffee rings on everything

So here in my white home

Ill have lots of time to think

That my garbage is my gold

But no dont go Gloria

Oh no low blow Gloria

Lord knows you’re full of those Gloria

Oh no dont go Gloria

Shakey Graves A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes

Well, a dream is a wish your heart makes

When you’re fast asleep

In dreams you will lose your heartache

Whatever you wish for you keep

Have faith in your dreams and someday

Your rainbow will come smiling through

No matter how your heart is grieving

If you keep on believing

The dream that you wish will come true

Shakey Graves Family Tree

Only dead folks get my jokes

Storm the castle and swim the moat

Across the world lives a big old goat

Who’s got nine eyes and breathes nothing but smoke

And he loves Lilly but Lilly loves me

And Lilly loves Shelia but Shelia Loves me

So lets go out back and plant a family tree

We’ll be as happy as a couple motherfuckers can be

Load your pistol to shoot the breeze

Go to the garden tell the birds and bees

Not to bother the girls or harass the boys

Busk for your breakfast baby make some noise

We’ll wake up grandpa wake up Jane

Throw a couple rocks at their window pane

If daddy gives me money Ill drink my milk

Got women to scare

Got a world to tilt

There’s no one in the world but you for me

So lets go out back and plant a family tree

Shakey Graves Georgia Moon

Doing 85 going north on 81

Wont see my baby till the rising of the sun

Tennessee keeps warnin’ me if I booze it I might lose it

But shine on Georgia moon

Shine on

Yeah well its hard to see the road

Through this rain and all the fog

Well this appalachian driving has me tired as a dog

But this mason full of moonshine, is gonna keep me mighty strong

So shine on Georgia moon

Shine on

So loosen up the lid and open up the throttle

You wanna see the light?

Aint gonna find it in a bottle

Cause when I’m sippin’ on a jar

The road aint quite so long

So shine on Georgia moon

Shine on

Shakey Graves Tomorrow

Well I’m tired of losing

I used to win every night of the week

Yeah, back when sex and amphetamines

Were the staples of our childhood physique

You used to tell me we’d turn into something

Oh, you said life was much better than this

Yeah, but the closest I’ve come to perfection

Is when you turned around to steal a kiss

But you never trusted tomorrow

Yeah, baby is that anyway to live your life?

Well, you love this heart and this six string, girl

But they’ve been outta tune (yeah) for some time

Well, you said, “Oh, I love so many women

There’s so many women love and driving me wild”

Yeah, they say you get lost in complexion

And the structure of a well-placed smile

But luckily you, oh, you never smile

Yeah, oh you, oh you never smile

And it looks just a little bit better that way to me

Sometimes it does

But, you know, you never trusted tomorrow

Oh, baby, that’s just a problem of mine

Yeah, I’ve been thrown around by some bad ones, girl

Oh, and a good one was a new thing this time

Yeah, but you showed me that I couldn’t be farther

From the truth of the problem at hand

Oh, I could never say “Baby, tomorrow

Oh, I’ll be right there, I’ma be your man

Yeah, oh, I’ll be your man”

Shakey Graves The Perfect Parts

Well this city’s put me through the wash

Mhmmm, I’ve been living here for you

Well I used to take my women on the rocks

Yeah, they used to wear out my ballroom shoes

Well you know that I had one too many drinks

Oh I found hope on your machine

Well you didn’t answer my request

You left my whole world on your string

Well that’s your thing

Well I see the words left on the screen

Yeah, you know they’re bursting just for me

Well you know that I’ve known you since we were three

Oh, we fell in love at seventeen

Well so I say, what did I learn, what did I learn?

I said, oh you learned me the heart

Well your lies will burn in alcohol

To sterilize the perfect parts

Well at least that’s a start

Shakey Graves Unlucky Skin

life tasted sweet when I was the bad twin

devil himself sat waving me by

all of my tattoos

they were of no use

no monetary values have I

ooh

wont be long till I belong

bird at my window tells me tomorrow

mean ol tornado carries me off

pulls me from bed and bashes my head in

buries me halfway across the globe

ooh

wont be long till I belong

without all of this unlucky skin

think of me often

loosen my coffin

let all the bugs in my wooden home

ooh

wont be long till I belong

without all of this unlucky skin
