lyrics

I got a gal in Witchita but I don't know her name
she don't drink she don't smoke but I love her the same
she's got a head full of nails and she'll tare ya right down
says there aint no room for lovers here in this town

the haze hung like a halo round his house when I stopped
I walked up through the door past the rubble and rock
I seen his head in the oven and his heart in his hands
left a note sayin I'm tired of this loveless land

I stopped at the edge of her house for I left
I said I'm taking you with me by choice or by theft
she threw her chains in the woods and she tangles our hands
sayin ride on ride on from this loveless land

I'm gonna find me a place so perfect and sweet
untouched by the pages of the red magazines
where my hands for you and you're for my hand
cause there ain't no room for lovers here in this land

The sun sat like an anchor on our backs as we rode
the frame bent down and dragged cross the earth from the load
a black pathway of glass stretched the funeral sands
from us to the gates of that loveless land
