Sunset On Edge Town

My old truck back fired once and then broke down
Now I’m stuck here in this old ghost of a town
Stuck with the fading sun going down
Going down at the edge of Edge Town

Looks like I might not drown
Can’t find no whislkey in this part of town
I started smoking and thought about my tattoo
She’s on my arm. A smeared image of a freak I once knew
I ate the last peice of wedding cake and threw out her white wedding gown
When I drove my pick-up truck into Edge Town
When I found myself lost this part of town

There are few rules in life to guide us
A golden ring. A few I Do’s and all that fuss
When I left her she fainted in that pure white dress
Her Momma and Poppa crying it was such a mess
Then she touched me. She made me want cry
Now I’m in a dark place. It’s time to say goodbye
Now I’m in a dark place. It’s time to say goodbye

A trail of yellow headlight beams
Guide me away from the surreal dream
Leaving you now must seem a little exrtreme
I gave back your ring why do you scream?
Baby I made a mistake. I’m just a human being
I’m leaving now baby. You make me crazy
I’m leaving now baby. You make me crazy

My old truck she broke down
I think I like it in this old ghost town
The sun will come up again on this empty town
Shinin’ on the edge of Edge Town. A new day at edge of Edge Town
