Shooter Jennings Wild & Lonesome Lyrics

The night just seems to drag on forever

Waiting for that cleansing morning call

Running from the mirror,

So I don’t see it any clearer

As fireworks bright and loud, burn out and fall

Wild and lonesome

Wild and lonesome

You’re blowing through life son

Like a Texas dust storm

Wild and lonesome

Like a child who wants someone to play with

And keep him warm

Bottle full of venom’s used for drowning

The ever-loving woman all my time

Take another toke, keep on smiling, life’s a joke

Keep on going till I forget the things I’ve done

Wild and lonesome

Wild and lonesome

You’re blowing through life son

Like a Texas dust storm

Wild and lonesome

Like a child who wants someone to play with

And keep him warm

When I finally see the line on the horizon

She illuminates the sky before my eyes

And before I get the chance to ask her for the dance

The poison once again left me immobilized

Wild and lonesome

High and stoned some

You’re blowing through life son

Like a Texas dirt storm

Wild and lonesome

Like a child who wants someone to play with

And keep him warm

Someone to lay with, feed him

And keep him warm
