lyrics

There's a hole in the barrel and a maidenhead is preaching
to a crowd along the river where a saxophone is sleeping
in a greasy parlor window where the piano player dreams a languid dream
I know I said I love you baby but nothing here is ever as it seems

You know I wish I would
I wish I would
I wish I would
I wish I would
You know God don't love you baby but the Lord knows I wish I would

All the voices in the Valvoline they are trying to relay to me
all of the holy invertebrate dreams of my vagrancy
and the angels of dawn they are calling out for clemency
out along the highway plain for every eye to see
and the Loa, l'wa, oh the L'wha- you sent them here to follow me

She got the telephone blues and a wineskin in her shoes
She got the afternoon gas station ransom in her boots
and they say that every woman is just trying to cut loose
but not every woman wants to be fell in love with too
you can say what you mean but don't say that you never even knew

You know I wish I would
I wish I would
I wish I would
I wish I would
You know God don't love you baby but the Lord knows I wish I would
