About

Uncle Tupelo in front of the old Blue Note

Persuaded, paraded, inebriated and down
Still aware of everything life carries on without
‘Cause there’s one too many faces with dollar sign smiles
I got to find the shortest path to the bar for a while

A long way from happinessIn a three hour away town
Whiskey bottle over Jesus
Not forever, just for now
Not forever, but just for now

When there’s a trouble around, it’s never far away
The same trouble’s been around for a life and a day
Oh, I can’t forget the sound, ’cause it’s here to stay
The sound of people chasin’ money and money gettin’ away

A long way from happiness
In a three hour away town
Whiskey bottle over Jesus
Not forever, just for now
Not forever, but just for now

Oh in between the dirt, disgust there must be
Some air to breathe and something to believe
Liquor and guns the sign says quite plain
Somehow life goes on in a place so insane

A long way from happiness
In a three hour away town
Whiskey bottle over Jesus
Not forever, just for now
Not forever, but just for now
