Valentine #1

Purchase on  The Queen of the Western Hemisphere - Big Medicine Head  and all online music stores

A one way ticket on the blue train
this lonely stretch of pavement soul
was praying to get over the border
dreaming crazy thoughts, going insane
like a train running wild

The hobo king was leading the parade
marching bands played out of time
batons collided in the air
the clowns are lining up now to be paid
the parade’s burning down

I can’t maintain
you’re always in my head
I dusted off my valentine
and laid on your bed
I can’t maintain
let’s paint the whole world blue
I dusted off my valentine
I’m sending it to you

The warden’s drunk, the guards unlocked the gate
we’ve all gone home
there’s no one left
to stamp out all the license plates
the clowns are lining up now to be paid
and the trains going home

I can’t maintain
You’re always in my head
I dusted off my valentine
And laid on your bed
I can’t maintain
Let’s paint the whole world blue
I dusted off my valentine
I’m sending it to you

Can you hear me?
Do I sound the same?
On the steps or
down the street or waving from a passing train
the Hobo King is whistling in the rain
and I’m almost home

I can’t maintain
You’re always in my head
I dusted off my valentine
And laid on your bed
I can’t maintain
Let’s paint the whole world blue
I dusted off my valentine
I’m sending it to you
