lyrics

10,000 Watts

I could not go to bed
For to sleep tonight
The shadows in my head were strong
That dirty lady
Who held my heart
She was planning to do me wrong

I paced up and down
My kitchen floor
At my reflection I pointed my gun
I said to myself,
“What’s a man to do
When he’s been wounded by the sun?”

Oh me
Oh my
I’ve a head full of lies
Hope don’t know my name

Oh my
Oh me
Lord, let me be free
My heart is covered in flame

I grabbed my coat
Pulled on my boots
Headed out into the night
I looked up at the stars
Burning above
Shining down on me out of spite

So I aimed my gun
Up at the heavens
Unloaded six loud shots
But my bullets missed the man
At whom I was aiming
I was boilin’ at 10,000 watts

Oh me
Oh my
I’ve a head full of lies
Hope don’t know my name

Oh my
Oh me
Lord, let me be free
My heart is covered in flame

Truck tires squealed
Smoke filled my lungs
Moonlight lit my way
You in your sundress
Down by the river
How could you go astray

Well I could not go to bed
For to sleep tonight
The shadows in my head were strong
Oh that dirty lady
Who held my heart
She gone and done me wrong
