about

A Western swing-esque tune about a short-lived and hella lived-up love affair.

lyrics

We met on a Monday
We kissed and we danced
I couldn't keep myself away from you
We quickly began a whirlwind romance
What do folks on a limited timeframe do?

'Cept smoke 100,000 Midnight Special cigarettes
And drink, drink, drink their wine
And pray they don't wind up with too many regrets
And end each night feeling wore-out and fine

We spent some nights out carousing with friends
Other nights in bed, just us two
Sometimes we'd wander the Santa Cruz traintracks
At the end of the day, what would we do?

Smoke 100,000 Midnight Special cigarettes
And drink, drink, drink our wine
And pray we wouldn't wind up with too many regrets
And end each night feeling wore-out and fine

I knew I'd miss you once I was gone
But we didn't let that spoil our fun
We kissed and we danced the whole damn day long
And you could always find us, when day was done

Smoking 100,000 Midnight Special cigarettes
And drinking, drinking, drinking their wine
And praying we wouldn't wind up with too many regrets
And ending each night feeling wore-out and fine

Let the Midnight Special shine a light on me
Let the Midnight Special shine it's ever-loving light on me
